I can't see Holloway touching him with a barge pole - regardless of wages. He undoubtedly has talent but the only place he has really excelled has been non-league. He just hasn't reached his potential and the football scrapheap is littered with players who didn't reach their potential.

The only striker I would welcome is Amond. How we let him go I'll never know🙄


Only one man to blame for doing that  Podge got his revenge yesterday 😂

Another player that's flattered to deceive in my eyes...
Outstanding in non league, looked good in league 2 but then when he's been asked to step up the league's he's out of his depth.
I've not looked at his scoring record over the last 3 years but I get a feeling it could be grim reading
And if teams are looking to bring in a striker who's going to net them 15+ goals a season, well, Bogle doesn't fit that mould going on his recent form...so while he's on big bucks at Cardiff i think he'll have to resign himself to taking a pretty hefty pay cut to get into a team where he'll play regular football again and I expect that to be maybe somewhere like Lincoln, bottom half of league 1 at best..
Shane it's not worked out for him but as we see with all players, they have a level and championship is a level too high for Omar..

He may do it at League 2 level but certainly not well enough to justify the wages he would accept.

Feels like a good example of where the Jan window can often trip players on the move up.

Leaving us was arguably a season too early for his development he’d jumped from NL1 to the Championship with one and a half seasons in between but that happens especially when a club like us gets a decent bid.

The other thing he and his agent got wrong was signing for a poor struggling Wigan side where he was brought in to make an impact, big challenge that for someone who needed a lot of input & development.

If I recall right it took him a while to get going in the 2 seasons he started for us but his average was just under 1 in 2 I think.

He’d be a decent signing for any club in L1 and 2 if they could give him a run and be patient but it categorically won’t be us.

I recall some daft buggers on here saying he was England and Premiership material never mind Championship.

I also recall all the excrement that came my way because I didn't get excited about him getting 18 or 19 goals for a very average Town side strikerwise in Div 4

I think the phrase is one I used once of a staff report I had to write 'performs well in moderate company'

Wouldn't pass Holloway's test, can't see him clearing up mud can you?


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

I think that just about knocks the nail on the proverbial head!

Other way round I'd say.

19 goals for us in our first season back in the league, before he left for Wigan at the end of January. You may be right about the money, but he has nothing to prove about his goal scoring ability at league 2 level.
