It looks like Derek has already started his Scottish (free agent) trawl, thought I would start a thread, as there are sure to be a few  from North of the border, heading to the green fields of Devon, hopefully we don't get another Shiftkey or Miller.

Fortunately by offering him 3 years, it won't happen.

I'm sure there are plenty more 30yr old out of contract players willing to play for low wages on a one year contract at Brent's circus.
Would have thought relegated Ross County would be shedding a few. laugh

Hallett won't be reading this. But - thanks to the tragically sad De-Larf who will be cracking one out whilst reading this sat in his piss-stained armchair with a crate of red bull speaking like Sheriff Buford T. Justice from Smokey and the Bandit, Hallett will be aware before long, in fact almost immediately. Laughing

Silent si the American investment company guy
Known from the start what’s been going from the start Why would you get involved with Brent if he wernt iffy answer that as long has he gets his interest he don’t seem to care ...how long has the loan been in place a year..so a years worth of interest already surely if Brent was using it or not or just sitting on it
I’d still want my interest each month I know that

Careful Reg. Rickler would have you believe he's done it for the misty eyed love of the old homeland. Not a lot different from Newell's love of Brent. You have to look into the eyes Reg, apparently, that's how truth is disseminated. Rickler's done a break fast maple pancake with the banker, he should know, he's looked into the eyes.
I believe Hallett has done it for a safe haven, that much admitted, along with a standard regular commercial return,  and with the possibility of a share windfall and regular profits from a limited company, let alone the regular travelling expenses across the pond now safely appropriated. And who gets to lend to themselves these days ? And that's before we get into the law of passing money from A to B when you get to a certain age.
Hallett  could never match all these criteria from a government bond in the good ol' US of A, or dear ol' blighty, but Rickler knows best, Si is doing it for the good of the club.
Anyway Reg, you're lucky, Rickler only picks on specific individuals he has a personal gripe with. You WILL NOT be targeted personally, I guarantee you.

Unlike you, who seems to target Rickler.

Anyway, if and when the makeover happens, it will be down to Hallett, who has provided the money, something Brent would never do. I'm still not sure about Hallett, but am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. He does have an interest in the football club and he is a football fan, and I certainly would rather have him as the major shareholder.

Time will tell, as they say down on the allotment.

1 why would he get involved with Brent if he wernt iffy
2 where was this life long bleeds green fan when we were in admin
3 And to support hallett blindly just because everybody hates Brent is just as bad as supporting Brent ..I think he needs a eye kept on him as well as Brent if I’m honest got a niggley feeling his got a ulterior motive in all this

That didn't quite go as intended did it Beezy?

As for your trite and dreary monologue ...  More pathetic by the day.  Full of assumptions, lies, conspiracies, and obsessive hatred.  

You've got big problems.  You're a mess.

It went exactly as intended. You targeted me, I target you.
I am not interested in pp's view on the state of affairs between you and I. It's irrelevant.

Never heard of scavenging Tone? There's some real gems in what people throw away you just have to handle a lot of shit to find one.
There is nothing wrong with looking for gems for free every club should be looking to do it what is totally naive is to think that Adams can find a dozen decent players for free with a lower wage than your competitors are offering. It's hard enough with the competition we have to find four decent players a year this model is dumb as feck and no one can expect Adams to continue to pull rabbits from hats apart from the totally deluded.

get em cheap, train em up, watch em do good then watch them feck off for better wages/ club/nearer family etc.

A new squad every season has to be hard work.

Absolutely spot on Earwego, a totally shot recruitment model based on a shyster owner using the club as an opportunity for his own interests.
Apart from the freebies out there North or South of the border I'm sure there must be a few £15k gems out there somewhere that will excite the terminally deluded.
Now what's that saying again? ah yes, "you get what you pay for".

My feeling is that the bargain basement players are bargain basement for a reason. You don’t become a professional footballer by being crap so they all have a degree of talent. What makes them bargains is that the talent is inconsistent or limited to a certain style of play.

Clearly DA can build a bargain team that will be competitive in L2 playing a restricted style of play. The problem comes in a higher division where you will need a plan B. Obviously you need players who can adapt to a change in style. Hopefully there are enough freebies out there who are adaptable to our needs.

"... no one can expect Adams to continue to pull rabbits from hats".

Quite.

I think this is actually bang on the money. When Adams arrived here, much as Sturrock did years ago, he had been totally immersed in Scottish football for years. He would have had intimate knowledge of the abilities of many players simply because they would have played for him and hordes more from them having been opponents.

As such he was able to bring in players relatively confident that they were good enough and would do a job for us.

Since then we have seen players like McHugh, Hartley, Tanner rock up in the SPL so there is clearly a wage parity of sorts between us and clubs like Motherwell. So if a journeyman Scottish pro becomes available the Adams would be well-placed to go and get him.

Thing is Adams has been here for 3 years now. The old intimacy of his knowledge of Scottish football must be all but redundant now. The players up there might have largely forgotten about him.

So what has been a relatively reliable conveyor belt of players becomes much less reliable with each passing year. The players Adams is currently intimtately aware of have either moved on or are here already and the opponents who have impressed are, probably to a man, playing for clubs we cannot compete with financially just like it appears that Bradley soon will be.

It is definitely going to get harder and harder for Adams to keep the momentum going just for these reasons but we are up a level now too and it is also harder and harder to progress the higher up you get.

There really is little reason to be confident that next season will match the last but the mantras being chanted are all about "year-on year progress", "consolidation", "play-offs next year", "trust in Adams" and so on. Well I do have confidence in Adams but I am far less certain that we'll press on next season as seems to be widely assumed.

If Adams had the fifth best budget that the fifth best supported club should have argo would make the playoffs, but the Community Property boyz have given the Miracle Worker another Brent Budget, where does the money go ? like the Jervis £125 000 for example.
