New Signings???
« on: June 20, 2009, 09:48:47 AM »
Must say I'm quite happy with the signings that have been made so far...  Any idea when we're going to get anyone else in though?  I'm hoping that our younger players impress enough during pre-season training to be signed on perm contracts such as Beck and Jackson...  Also any ideas when the new strip will be ready to buy, quite fancy having a new one this year.  Up the Pilgrims!!!  :)

I was hoping to get one to wear on my run around Leeds tomorrow, but unfortunately Craig tells me they won't be available until about 6th July - so I'll be running in the same strip as last year.  8)

Thats both the slight worry and the conundrum PP.

We haven't signed many, and surely it means only a couple of things,
a)the managers are struggling to convince players to travel from Derbyshire (it is a trek),
b)dont have intimate knowledge of local players,
c) possibly they have so many irons in so many fires (player wise) that they are waiting for the futures of a lot of their targeted players who may be trialling at clubs in higher leagues to be determined before pouncing

or.....

ignoring all that, they might simply be both on their hols and in the next couple of weeks a whole posse of players will be signed ;D

Is it really that much of a trek? hour and a half to play football which all players should be prepared to do if they love playing, oh and i think they do get payed fairly well if you work out the hours that they actually work....

It might be an hour and a half on a Saturday morning with nothing on the roads Dave, but you could stick up to another hour at 5.30 in the evening, a bit more if they come from the Rotherham/Sth Yorks area and 2 maybe 3 times a week, certainly initially just for training, when for a month I imagine they get no wages, it actually comes to quite a few hours and a fair bit of petrol money
Maybe, just maybe, before someone suggests any negatives here, its why some players here last year were offered less for the coming season. Logically if any players were making such a trek they presumably will want and will have to be paid accordingly

In truth, I imagine I would I would

An ex-Boston defender is in talks. One word - HOOF!!
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.
