No, why would we? He was mutually released from his contract. He wanted to go, we wanted him off the wage bill.

We can't have it both ways.

The only way to get a fee for him would have been to refuse to cancel his contract.
I was trying to point that out to Andy. See my comments above I know we will not get any fee for him.

Andy didnt need anything pointing out to him though, he was just responding to the statement about sell on clauses :)

One of the clubs he is being linked with is Kettering.

I’m sure it’s been posted in here but Jordan Nicholson has joined Reece Styche at Hereford.

So (if true) Styche has notched up another Club to mark on his bedpost. Three in 12 months and counting. I never understood some fans "loyalty" to him. Yes circumstances may have meant we had to sell him, but his record speaks for itself in terms of how many clubs he has had, he never stays anywhere long.

When Styche first signed I thought he was class, a cut above this level, However after a while we saw the true Styche, constantly moaning at the ref getting involved in winding opposition players up. That's his personality. If he stuck to his game he would be a lot better and score more goals. I notice towards the end at Alfreton he was on the bench a lot - surprising considering the fee they paid. I don't think he is an Alun Armstrong character anyway.

“If true”?.Its been common knowledge for a month or so where he is now.
16 clubs in a 10 year career.Must be a popular lad in the changing room then !!

Styche officially signed for Hereford a while back. Funnily enough, I think we are one of the clubs where his face fit. I think a lot of places he didn't, and i suspect he runs his gob a bit, which rubs some people and teams (and fanbases) up the wrong way. For sure it isn't normal to go through the amount of clubs he has, and from a personal perspective, it has to be weird for him. I don't know what else he does, or if football is his sole occupation right now, but he's been shuffled all over the country, and even if its just changing his commute, team mates, management and playing system every few months. Christ, even my 7 a side team doesn't change as often as his clubs do.

Nicholson is a good signing for them, and we will miss him. I can see why AA has done it though, as i suspect he was on a big wage plus travel expenses, and he obviously feels he can get a replacement who is cheaper... but he was our top scorer in a poor team last year. I think Hereford might be up there this year.

Well they were relegation fodder for much of last season, Nicholson was too, and styche is very much dependent on the way the wind is blowing, so unless they've made some other good signings it isn't pointing to a promotion push for me. I hope they have some grafters to do the work for them or its not going to add up to much.

Agree about Styche I think he basically chases the money he must get a signing on fee most times he move plus a decent wage.

I'm distinctly unbothered by it. He was very good for us, turned a profit, and was sold against his will by all accounts. I'd happily have him back if the budget allowed. His face seemed to fit here. Just simply pointing out that the evidence suggests it doesn't or didn't in a lot of other places.
