Notts County looking at that Tshimanga from Boreham Wood who has been one of the top scorers in this league the last few seasons?
This after signing two of Torquay's best players in their 2nd placed finish last season.
And the guy with 100's of FL appearences they signed in midfield.
Where do they find all these unknown gems from?
Yeah, agree with Rob. Wand of a left foot and very tidy. However, he's too weak and slow. Had a bad injury before us I believe, I seem to remember thinking he looked a bit scared, which I always attributed to said injury.Played for Tranmere in 2018 19. Has quality but not a hard working player.
Some good players there. Aren’t Alty part time? How have they managed to get those on trial?!
Edit: Ajay Leitch-Smith and Alex Brown too I see
No he’s under contract. Burchnall didn’t actually say it’s nonsense to be fair, just that he wouldn’t talk about someone under contract at another club.
We won’t be signing someone of that profile just to come in as an option off the bench though, put it that way. Still people that haven’t entirely got their heads around that our approach is signing people like Tshimanga before anyone has heard of them. They’ll (rightly ) say that we shouldn’t worry about a Mullin or Quigley when we’ve got Roberts and Rodrigues, then demand we sign one anyway and forget where those two came from.
That’s the one. I know we looked at him at one stage but I think we didn’t want to pay the fee Buxton were after.Would that be the Alex Brown who started at left back for Lynn last season? We signed him at the start of the pandemic when the NLN shut down so he managed to earn a promotion without playing a game but then looked out of his depth at NL level (tbf as did most of his fellow defenders last year)
Thanks. Yes, I think we paid a fee and he came with a big fanfare that we had 'got him' but looked absolutely out of his depth last year with zero positional sense in either a back four or as a wing back. Hopefully he can find a move to a club that will get him back on track.That’s the one. I know we looked at him at one stage but I think we didn’t want to pay the fee Buxton were after.
Laziest player you'll ever see. When he left us he rocked up in Finland and was released after playing only 20 minutes, despite being there for a number of months because of his attitude and inability to get fit. I would be amazed if Parky signed him, he's the exact opposite of his type of player.
Big lad but one of the least physical strikers you’ll see. Can’t score to save his life.
I genuinely forgot we even had him, I had to google to jog my memory. I’m pretty sure he was one of a number of players that came in following Mills’ bizarre scattergun approach in his second season. Apparently he scored on his debut vs Bromley and I vaguely recall that being a decent header and we all thought we’d found a gem, but we were wrong. You could maybe say that he did quite well to score goals in that team because we were seriously bad, but for a big guy, he just doesn’t have/use his strength. If he finally learned to use his size, then he may actually do well for any team in the bottom half of the division, but definitely not one looking at play offs
Hope springs eternal..Laziest player you'll ever see.

His name has been branded about (by people who like to make out they 'know stuff'), along with a return of Vernam (out of favour at Bradford); doubt there is anything actually going to happen with either of them.
It seems like somebody puts it on Twitter with no grounds whatsoever and then people jump on it, no chance whatsoever in my opinion.
