By doing whatever it takes to secure a player or 2 and risk upsetting 11 others?


The die had been cast well before any negotiations took place..

Even top clubs have problems keeping their best players,  not just us. Sometimes it's more to do with location, like Clark for example. If you raise the salaries then you just raise the bar at which they leave. Every player has a price. Neymar at Barcelona,  Ronaldo at Real for example. You can only go so far, but if a player wants out, just get the best possible deal you can.

Even if he was doubling his salary, it is not as simple as that.  Nothing is certain.

He could suffer a bad injury, sustained loss of form or just not cut it at a higher level. The new club could go bust or a manager uses different tactics that do not suit him.

A loss of confidence as well can easily result in being released by the club.  We have seen examples of players ending up playing below the league status of GTFC.

A good player can be a big fish in a small pond, or try his luck in a bigger pond for more reward (and more risk).  Each player makes his own choice.

Quoted from marinerjase
As usual diehardmariner sums it up perfectly.  You can’t deny any player wanting to play at a better level or earn more - certainly in this day and age - so good luck to him in that respect.

On the other hand - is a shame when people within club and colleagues have helped ‘resurrect’ his career, and given him the opportunity.
Would have been nice to see him stay for a season, or even part of - sure it would’ve benefitted him and the club. But guess with all the uncertainty of these times, agents role etc - as said, you have to respect his position and wish him well.


Up until Limbrick took caretaker control his GTFC career was pretty much a disaster for him, injured, hardly got a run in the team, not exactly prolific and ultimately getting loaned out so i dont think other than being fairly local he would feel he owes anyone here or feels any loyalty. Limbrick brought him back in, Holloway benefitted from that and he has been able to put himself in the shop window to get a pay rise/ better deal where he may actually feel he would get the proper chance he may feel he didnt get here.

Good luck to him, i think part of his revival also coincided playing with a better pedigree of player, Glennon/ Benson/Clarke so a step up may actually suit him really well.

I don't think Jolley knew how to play him.

Basicly it looks like Ollie wont get chance to sign the best players around if we don't take a chance and forget the wage cut before we have a starting date/rescue package, Plenty of clubs are renewing contracts or signing new players such as  (typical example Port Fale  who dont have a pot to p in).  (So far a Grimsby fan has renewed with us.   New chairman yes,  same old shambolic penny pinching yes,  quality core squad, you've got to be kidding!

And maybe they are jumping in too soon and panic buying. The championship hasn't ended yet, when it does there will be a lot of good players looking for clubs.

We have a very experienced manager, who is a canny operator in the transfer market.  Can't you trust him FFS.

So Charles Vernam and Billy Clarke don't trust IH's vision or accept our paltry wage offers yet you expect us to sign Championship standard players. I have to admire your blind faith optimism Mimma..
