I wouldn’t expect him to be playing Saturday...

Why not exactly? Surely if he is our player they can’t stop that?

If it is Styche I will be surprised if he plays Saturday, would imagine a clause would be agreed between the 2 clubs.But is it Styche?

It's definitely Styche - unless of course the deal collapses at the last hurdle.

Tamworth won't have wanted to sell before this weekend as they wouldn't want him to line up against them on Saturday.

Likewise, we wouldn't want the deal held up until Monday because the last thing we would want is the striker we've agreed to sign banging a brace against us on Saturday.

The best thing is to conclude the deal the deal before the weekend but Styche doesn't play? That way neither club has to worry about him playing against them.

Not that we haven't done something similar before...

Joachim. He cost £100,000. He scored 13 goals. That's £7692 a goal!

I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Thought he scored more than that? To be fair he was pretty good too, although he was moved to the wing.

He seemed a bit of a let down to me, especially for the money involved - although there may have been something unusual about that deal involving Sotnick.

Glen Naylor was much better value :)

I suppose we could sign him after 11pm so he couldn't play for either team?

Not sure there's anyway a clause like that could be enforced but a gentleman's agreement could certainly be reached.

We're not York after all and Martin Gray doesn't pull the strings.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Our CEO confirmed at tonight's DFCSG AGM that a deal for a Centre Forward had been concluded..................Keep guessing! David gave an impromptu update on a number of issues came across very positive, and dynamic, seems to have a great professional relationship with TW who understands our basis for going forward.

Evening am probably heading back to Merseyside tomorrow, my wife wants me to take her out for a drink.............how selfish is that? But I will call into the Club shop tomorrow as I have a donation to make as well. You sure you don't want a nice Club shirt for your wife's Xmas present!

Interesting in this mornings echo it says the striker and Wright played together. Just had a quick look. Wright went to Forest Green for a short period in 2012 while Styche was there.

You're a bit late putting all the twos together, everyone knows it's Styche and the deal has been done. Even Tamworth fans are saying he's gone on their forum...and...

I tweeted something last night along the lines of "refresh twitter, no Styche signing yet" and who replied to the tweet but the man himself, with "patience".

Styche announced.....almost.

http://darlingtonfootballclub.co.uk/dar ... ce-styche/

Seems like the deal is signed but perhaps a gentlemans agreement that he doesn't play on Saturday so the wording is he is still in talks.

Should be a good signing. Added bonus is that he seems to wind up opposition fans everywhere he goes

Also, timed perfectly so that even if the deal falls through at the last minute he won't be playing against us tomorrow :lol:

This is getting silly but I guess we had to respond to the Tamworth statement with something. Let's hope his personal terms don't blow this out of the water!

By the sounds of their manager's interview in the Birmingham Mail, everything has been agreed.

Yeah - I imagine it's all done but we've agreed to put the paperwork through after the game so that he doesn't play tomorrow. Probably fair enough

When he played against York the other week, there was a spat between him and Martin Gray. When he scored his second he ran over to the York bench and celebrated infront of MG, same again in January please!
