Sure we were in for him a few weeks ago but he chose to join Boston United instead (presumably money related).

Just seen that he has had his contract terminated, with no reason given, after three games.

Gregg Smith the big target man who was at Stamford last season is out for the season with a broken leg and with Brodie leaving they will have ex Carlisle man Karl Hawley upfront for our trip on Saturday.

Wonder why Brodie left and if Gray will be in for him again?

If Brodie is still based up here I would think traveling to Boston twice a week for training and back again on Saturday for a game would soon piss him off.
Or maybe,as has been suggested on here,he's an unreliable tosser.

I can't see how Boston could offer more money than us? On top of that they would no doubt need to pay hefty expenses for travel to home games and also training if he trained down there.

Cos he is a complete waste of time, he thinks he is a big time Charlie and would not have him anywhere near the dressing room.. The lad has issues!!!

Boston did offer more money. Its twice now that Brodie has agreed to sign for us and then backed out when a better offer has come along. If Gray is still interested then I'd be very surprised.

Yes I know they offered more money, I just can't see how. As far as I'm aware they aren't bankrolled like some of the tinpot, clownshoe outfits that we often come across.

As for Brodie, maybe he's contacted Gray and said look I made a mistake, any chance the offer is still on?

Brodie completely slated for his lacklustre efforts during his brief spell there by the Boston fans. By all accounts he did nothing at all.

I can't see Gray getting anything else out of him, he has had enough chances.

Gary Mills soon shipped him out when he took over at York and I think he was at Southport for a short time before that so something is not right.Seems to have put on a few pounds by the look of things, cannot see MG going for him but you never know, could take a punt on a non contract.

Too many people making comments based on hearsay and reputation here.

Brodie can still be a class act and if anyone can get him back to peak form then Gray can.

If Gray can't then no one can, and yep I'd agree then he's probably finished.

A contract with some sort of a "if you fuck up, you're released, simple as that" clause is worth a punt and we'd lose nothing from the gamble.

I'll stick my neck out and predict that Brodie would come good for Darlo.

But I'll leave it up to Gray to decide on the gamble - if it was me I'd have dialled B for Brodie as soon as I heard the news. One last shot for the cherry cheeked chubster.

B for Mark Beck any day of the week over that clown. Wouldn't pick him infront of Beck, Cartman or Hardy and if that's the case, he wouldn't improve us, so we shouldn't sign him. Simple

Hawley is still a good player - did well for Stourbridge when they beat us last season.

Didn't know he was at Boston now.

I just KNOW he will score for them. Guaranteed.

You're talking about a player who took part in three games for Boston and had his contract terminated due to an "internal matter" within a month. Their fans in the main seemed to suggest he was completely unfit, immobile and well, crap really. Gray usually shies away from people he feels could upset the spirit in the team and normally likes players who work their socks off, whether forwards, midfielders or defenders.

Brodie is better than all three IMO, and that's nothing against them either - I think they're all alright. Beck in particular is a good player.

Can't agree with you Paul, why take a player that is on a downward spiral, ahead of keen younger players, who can get better. But it's all about opinions.

He's been top scorer at clubs higher than us and been in promoted sides so maybe he'd be worth a go with the proviso that he's dumped if he doesn't pull his weight?

Think Quakerz is on the wind up. Either that or he's banged his head.

Id rather have Noel Whelan back than sign him.

It's one or the other.

York, and now Boston have worked out that Brodie has run out of steam - I reckon he's just the sort of player Gray wouldn't want.

I think Q is remembering the Brodie who was sold for 250k a few years ago. Don't think that guy is around anymore. A York fan told me he thinks Brodie was seen downing pints when he wasn't selected

On that basis, let's give Dean Windass another shot.

Gray tried to sign him just a few weeks ago - was he on the wind up or did he bang his head?

I trust his opinion more than an anti-Brodie message board mob.

Twice now Brodie has gone back on an agreement with Gray to sign. Unless Gray has kept on at him since he went to Boston then I doubt he will be willing to be used as a bargaining tool again.

Looking at some pictures and some of the interviews late last year, he needs to lose about 3 stone.
