Title: Jona returns
Post by: Winging It on October 11, 2014, 03:52:08 PM
Sounds like we will have Mark Jones back , on loan from Spalding after todays game.  If this is true, will be a good signing for us.

Anyone moving the other way ?

Not from us, sounds like they are moving for Jordan Nuttell from Boston Town.

Is signing a player who,s been on the bench of a team 2 leagues lower than us the answer ?
Mark failed at Trinity ,  Only Jason Lee seemed capable of getting goals out of him .

I think DG has been after him for a while, he rejected us in the summer. A loan move means Jones keeps the same weekly wage, a transfer would surely mean a wage cut!

Jonah split opinion when he was here last and I was one of those who neither disliked him nor raved about him.
Neither Lee or Drury made him their first choice
Wentnto GT on a silly contract but worryingly they too were glad to get him off the payroll and tho there may be reasons we aren't privvy to being a sub in the NPL South hardly inspires does it. Please prove me wrong but am afraid not for me unless its a short term deal until Newsh gets fit

When he played for Tinpoty against us he was awful.

NOT a good choice he's way off match fitness, and we have not got a player the like's of ROSS to feed him.

I think SPALDING have pulled a fast one, I just cannot get my head round this one.

Maybe I would, but if I made my bed, I'd understand if others wanted me to lie in it.  I'm also not sure throwing another striker at it is the answer to our problems.  Time will tell.

According to my son in law who supports Stamford but lives I'm Spalding, Jonah has missed a good few games through injury and needs to get match fit!
In principle we all understand that but i have to say I cant remember any examples of players being loaned to a team two leagues above them to get it!
If the manager of Spalding doesn't want to play him in his team why should we. A strange one, a bit like loaning Newsh to say Nortampton to get his match fitness

Why does it matter? The 16 who are picked to start or on the bench next week are Boston United players.

I am told SPALDING turned down the chance to take SANDERS and opted to take JORDAN NUTTELL to replace JONES.
strange things are happening if true.

Trinity offered him a better deal than he was on at BUFC, and a contract. He was still on less than most of Boston's team at that time, and Spalding paid for him, and improved his terms when they took him from GT. He will cost Boston a fair amount, but probably no more than your current established players.
However, taking unfit players from lower league teams smacks of desperation- DG must be feeling the pressure

Happy to see him back but where's the service going to come from ? Unless changes in midfield are made all the forwards will be feeding off is desperate long punts up the pitch. Good luck Jona.

Former Boston youth teamer and local lad from the Deepings.  He's one to watch for the future, am sure the scout is aware.  But all due respect, Jona is proven at this level, young Waumsley is not.

I'm with Pilgrim 86 and Green Hats Mate on this one.  I don't think it's pedantic at all within the context of this thread to ask for something to back up Steelihats claims. Anyone can start chucking figures around, with the only evidence to back it up being "I'm in the know".

In Sales I would imagine with bonuses and commissions it would happen plenty of times.

I also would see it happening in most professional sports at the top level.

More a case of making sure we have the appropriate value for money with everyone.  Miller was great value for money last season, Timms less so.
