I don't get the joke - this is the striker York signed a couple of weeks ago who is off the Norway in January, isn't it? Has something happened?

I think he had a difference of opinion with Gray and his stay ended prematurely.

To think the signs were there...my comment on the Mark Beck thread from the day he signed for York...

Martin is only back in the UK short term. Pretty sure he scored for Darlington Albion in Sunday league last weekend.

The 'difference of opinion' being that his instagram page had a video of him and his mates chanting that Martin Gray is a 'paedo'.

Aside from it being funny how unprofessional that is, get him signed until January.

Why?

He's scored 1 goal v Coalville and not really impressed that much for York.

He's played for a Sunday team when he's not supposed to, showing how much disregard he had for his agreement with York.

He could only play a maximum of 3 matches for us anyway.

He's from Darlo but supports Man U.

Not got a lot going for him really, I'd rather stick with Caton.

It's not like it is hidden the videos of him playing for Darlington Albion on facebook with match reports naming him

I doubt he cares York was a stop gap before going back to professional football anyway.

Gray obviously thought he was a good player, if that means anything!

One of the lads I know is his best mate and said he does support Darlington and also said he would play for Darlo for free.

Sign him up.

Showed an absolutely appalling attitude to the club who were paying his wages, non contract or not.

As has been said above he would only be available for 3 games so it would be a pointless waste of wages.

If it wasn't Martin Gray you wouldn't be saying sign up.

Long story short, no.

We'd be foolish not to get him in for the 3 games.

Styche aside, he is a class above our alternatives.

Too right if he bangs in the winner against Sal£ord it's well worth it

:lol: :crazy: :wtf:

He's managed only one goal for York and that was against Coalville in the FA Trophy in the weekend.

And even if he did score you can bet your house and car we'd concede many more at the other end.

I wish I could be that deluded.

Only played a few games so better goal to games than our strikers? Apart from the new boy of course.

Weren't we in for him at the same time as York initially? I'd still take him tbh even if its only three games. He scored a belter for them on the weekend.

My lad is a York fan and goes to most of the matches (has been an interesting couple of months in our family!), but he didn't rate Gary Martin at all

Given our dearth of strikers it's an absolute no brainer to bring in another even if it just gives another option for the next 4 weeks. If he's willing to play for next to nothing even better. We've not really got anything to lose

If he signed for a month then it wouldn't be much different to having a player on loan for a month.

I wouldn't be against him coming for a month to give us an extra option up front as long as he didn't want too much money.

No brainer for me, if he doesn't want much money. Plus, it's funny.

It'd be funnier if he doesn't sign for Lillestrom until later in January, and played against York like.

If we don't, you can just about guarantee Spennymoor will. Would be great to boost our striking options, even if short term.

Piecing together the intrigue behind this, it goes something like this. Gary Martin comes on as a sub for Darlington Albion in a match against Sedgefield St Edmunds, a team that Martin Gray played for many moons ago.

St Edmunds have been 3-0 up at one stage but Albion, aided in part by their star sub, complete an amazing comeback to win the game 4-3. There's a pitch invasion and jubilant scenes among the travelling fans. St Edmunds are distraught and the only revenge that is left open to them is.... Ring, ring... "Hello, is that Martin Gray....?"

It's always a dish best served cold...

Clearly, he has hit form and should sign for us.

To those saying no, let's say he signs for us for a few games, takes little or even no money for it and plays 5 mins as a sub and doesn't score... have we lost anything?

He wasn't involved in the singing. That all happened after Gray rang him and told him he was sacked.
Apparently he is playing in a trial game with a few other trialists tonight.
