Not if we reinvest the money in the squad. The board of directors aren't daft. They know the score.

I think you'll find a large amount of this income will be going towards the debt.

Again hopefully we've got a decent fee for him, can't begrudge him wanting a full time wage.

Let's hope there's enough in the pot for a couple of additions to get us back on am even keel. If not, we will go back to the division below on a sound footing and have another go.

There's more to this football club than this season. There'll be plenty more ups and downs.


Also, what debt are you referring to?

At this point I wish we'd let Gray follow his toys out of the pram in the summer, but hey, here we are. I can't see this would happen if we didn't have alternatives lined up. If it gets us into a budget surplus then fine.

The rejig was never going to end just because we got a new manager in. This feels like the next stage in a process to me.

We may need an appeal for volunteers to fill the bench on Saturday.

Wright and White need to do things there way and quite clearly some of the players have thrown the towel in (although Bartlett had not).
Replacing a goalkeeper isn’t too bad at our level, finding a goal scorer is much more difficult!

What is it with Darlo fans?

A player who gave his all for us, has the opportunity to go full time and earn a living.

He's done that. Why does there also have to be some doom and gloom reason on our side? Why not just a great opportunity?

I'll take the money and slot Ed straight in, no worries.

Come on guys, we've lost two players who aren't legends and now the manager can be judged on the players he brings in with this wage surplus at least.

BTW if this money is going to the debt too, I wouldn't be too harsh on Gray, he could've left us up shits creek and took the paddle too!

But now he has left to go play FULL-TIME football.

Have you never changed your mind on something? Fuck me, amount of doom-mongers on here is beyond ridiculous.

Totally agree with this.

Ed was unlucky to be dropped in the first place, and it only happened as Bartlett became available out of the blue, and I’ve got go qualms of putting him straight back in the team.

Even if the transfer fees go to paying off debt we have freed up a massive chunk of budget. We can probably get 2 players for the wage each of the departed players were on.

Not bothered in the slightest about Beck, happy to cash in on him while we could.

Bartlett I am very disappointed with, our best player for me this season which is ominous enough with the copious number of goals we seem to be conceding lately he will a big, big miss.

No disrespect to Ed but I think we'll be a weaker team without him.

Ed is more than able backup for Bartlett, I thought when he was dropped he was very unlucky, as he had some great games. I'm sure TW will not of let players go without being given assurances about being allowed to bring in suitable replacements.

I wonder if Bartlett couldn't find a suitable coaching job to supplement his wage and got cheesed off with his drop in income.

The obvious solution to this problem would be to get a full time better paid job.

I would guess the full time wage they offered him was more than he was getting between us and his current job. Enough more that it was too good for him to turn down. There's also the possibility they'll fund coaching courses for him alongside him playing. Either way, he did well for us and I don't begrudge him taking the opportunity.

If York are still in for Shane Bland then Luke Simpson is a very decent keeper over there and would end up being fourth choice behind Barlett, Bland and Worsnop. If not, would we be interested in Bland for ourselves?

Of course we are weaker without Bartlett, but as has already been said, Ed was doing a decent enough job until the opportunity to sign a goalkeeper capable of playing at a higher level came up. Bartlett's circumstances at the time were that he wanted to combine part-time football with a coaching job. Those circumstances have changed so why wouldn't he take up another full-time playing role?

I think it is clear now that the priority has to be strengthening the front-line. Cartman is lacking confidence/support/a bit out of his depth (delete as appropriate) and Saunders is in his first full season with the first team. Both are similar types of player so we do need at least one other option.

Defensively we have a few injuries but these will clear up. Once Burgess, Brown and Collins are all fit we have cover and competition and between the three of them I'm sure they are plenty good enough.

Midfield is well covered with plenty of options as I see it.

No wonder they are selling Chris Hunter mugs in the club shop.

He will soon be the only player left!

Disappointing that he has left but his last interview gave an indication he was not happy with the defence and TW said that the was unhappy conceding 6 goal while he personally was playing well. When he first started playing for us he was very vocal giving direction to the players around him but lately that has not been so evident. Looks like he had decided that there was nothing he could do to influence the results. Given the difference in the club statements between Beck and Bartlett I wonder if Bartlett just got fed up and approached York saying he had changed his mind?

Saying all that hopefully the money was a reasonable amount, (which we need), and I think Ed will be a good stand in, and it gives him a chance to prove that MG was wrong to side-line him.

Being fan owned we now need to expect this happening to our better players with team who have benefactors and willing to pay.

no. gray (i.e. York) would've picked up the phone to the player and made him an offer. the offer was better than our terms. he chose to leave. end of.

Nothing to do with being fan owned - even if we had a sugar daddy there would be bigger and/or more financed teams than us who would look to sign our better players (unless Jeff Bezos fancied owning a football club)

Bartlett had a full time job keeping the score down in single figures given our poor defensive showing. He was totally frustrated by the ineptitude and lack of spirit shown on Saturday, in fact Saturday was probably what pushed him into reversing his decision about being full-time. At least we have some cover for that position, in fact Ed W should be thanked for staying with us having been dumped on by Gray when he signed Bartlett. I just hope we have got some real money for Bartlett and not the promise of a friendly v MGFA team next year. Can't blame Adam B for going, but it could be a case of out of the frying pan into the fire for him. Either way, he can be sure of a warm reception when he comes back in January!
