Re: Telford V Darlington

Beauchamp was on a non-contract wasn't he? He can't be on loan?

He was definitely a punt though but was a risk free one I think.

Re: Telford V Darlington

& probably the best amongst the non-professional sides. I mean I suppose if you ignore Brackley, Spennymoor and Boston, then possibly. I even think Gloucester were pretty well placed budget wise but they are doing terribly for it. Clearly Gateshead, Kidderminster, AFC Fylde and York have their full...

Re: Telford V Darlington

Thing is that each season he has been here is said to be “transitional” for whatever reasons. What season? He still hasn't had a season yet unless I'm mistaken? I agree with darlogramps in terms of no need to over react. To be honest I want to see what happens if we actually give a manager a bit of...

Re: Luke charman

Yeh that's what I thought these things generally worked in terms of sell-ons of sell-ons.

In effect by us inserting it we have effectively made it mandatory that Charman is sold with a sell on clause included.

Jeez will definitely mean Rochdale will have to push for a sell-on clause if they ever did look to cash in.

Imagine (as an example) being hit with a £1million bill for a player you potentially sold for say £300k!

Beeden to Billingham Town until the end of the season is confirmed now. That’s the last we’ll see of him I’d imagine, ahead of his inevitable release at the end of the season. Agreed.

Re: Jake Lawlor

I am guessing the fact he has received a pay out from Hartlepool and a contract from us, means his wage hasn't dropped at this point. See I assumed the reason he was released by Hartlepool was to make sure that he wouldn't be contracted when the window closed. If he did receive a pay-off I guess he...

Re: Luke charman

Therefore don’t be surprised if we don’t spend a significant amount on replacing Luke.

I’d be very surprised if we haven’t negotiated some add-ons as part of the deal.
I would be extremely surprised if there is a £40k release clause that Rochdale would meet his release clause and then give us some add-ons out of the goodness of their heart.

Re: Luke charman

Well if he got that clause it suggests that yes he was.

Possibly, if I am not mistaken, helped by being our only striker at the time he signed.

I might be remembering incorrectly but our search for a striker has only this season been superceded by our desperation for defenders this season.
