My point was that he’s had 7 clubs and the furthest he’s been from Liverpool is Accrington! I get that some players like to stay local but a strange mentality imo.

Ah got you. Yeah no idea, Scousers love being near Liverpool. Its one of the reasons we got Mullin (that and the bags of cash)

Baffled why a L2 or NL Club aren't taking Pearce? Is there something we don't know about and he's chosen to go PT?

Is there money going in at Hereford this season? I saw they signed Zeli Ismail too who I would also have expected to sign in L2 or NL

Their manager Josh Gowling does an article in a national paper (Guardian I think) and it didn't sound like it. Decent sized Club for the level they're at, mind.

Also echo the thoughts on Pearce. Thought he's been excellent every time I've seen him. Good on the ball, fast and very strong. Looks like Gowling is building another good Hereford team there we nicked John-Lewis and Giles Coke off them last year.

Big day for us today, we’re hoping to see Siriki Dembele moving on from Peterborough. We’ve got 25% of any fee and it seems they’re waiting out for around 5-6m, Stoke and Sheffield United the front runners…

I don’t understand, he’s better than anything we’ve got.

We’ve signed goalkeeper Aston Oxborough on a season long loan from Norwich. Was on loan at that bitter tinpot outfit down the road the season they got promoted I believe.

Oxborough had a terrible ACL injury in pre-season last year, just before he was rumoured to join Salford on loan.

If he’s back to 100% then that’s a great signing. Tall, commands his box well and an excellent shot stopper too.

We were after him, even recommended a Norwich player to join us this season, but we were also told he was still injured. Upto last week he was still injured. If he’s fit, he’s decent.

Fully fit, a great goalkeeper albeit untested at this level. That said, it does seem that Brennan and Kewell's recruitment is pretty lazy. How many players have they signed that have played for them before? I get that happens at lower levels, but shouldn't happen to that extent at this level.

That is the feeling I’m getting!

Didn’t Brennan say, when he came into Barnet, that he had a black book of players that he had scouted whilst being away from the game that he would look to bring to HA8. I am sure that he said there were seventy odd players he was keeping tabs on.

That process worked well when he took over us. I am shocked that you didn’t sign Mendy-Mendy from us.

There hasn't been a single signing that I would describe as left field. I'd love a couple of promising players from lower down the leagues.

Perhaps it wasn't Brennan who had the black book when he took over at the Stones?

The Wealdstone chairman told me that he went on holiday and met a charming couple from Chesterfield.

He was actually very complimentary about the hospitality at the club and said it far outweighed the supporters throwing dog shit at the players as they left the team bus

That’s still not as bad as the reception you receive at Scunthorpe where they throw human shit at you.

Surprised at that.....thought they would consider it useful house building material.
