CH...do you seriously believe we can win this league by signing players that have been released by clubs currently in this league?

No, the way you are going to do it is by only signing players who have (a) refused to sign a new contract for a club in this league or below or (b) have been released by a club from a higher league.

Good one Ian! Made me chuckle! :lol:

For what it's worth. Yes I believe you can win the league by building a team of National League standard players.

Also, Eastleigh have quite openly stated that they need to take a different approach with younger cheaper players. Due to a different situation at the top of the hierarchy. Just because they leave other National League sides at the end of their contracts doesn't make them bad players. Evans, Jake Cole and Rendell have all proved that.

Am I about to get a whoosh or something here?

Last season when we played Barrow and drew 2-2 Will Evans was man of the match. Upstairs whilst being interviewed by Mark Butler, Mr Evans stated that the players had learnt from the mistakes. So this season we are second and are at home to Macclesfield who are top. A home win for us and we go top, and the rest will have to chase us. After about 90 seconds and the ball is played forward and Evans lets the ball bounce, I MEAN REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!So in trying to make amends Evans fouls the forward gives away a pen and gets a red card. This left a mountain to climb as we go 1 down, but only ten on the field of play. His remaining teammates put in a powerful performance, which almost got a positive result. Unfortunately the effort affected the next game on the Tuesday and a game which should have returned 3 points only returned 1 as the players where out on their feet and knackered. We then play Barrow at home and three points puts us third and a quarantees us a semi final home tie. We have to score first as Barrow also needs points to stay up. However poor old Will has not read the script again, and needlessly fouls his opponent from behind, and from the free kick Barrow score and now we are chasing the game. Luckily Rens saves the day, but Evans wants more. In a tight game against Ebbsfleet, we finally get the lead with a stunning goal from Kabamba, and all we have to do is manage the game for ten minutes, should be easy yes??????? so we lump the ball up to their keeper at least fives times and we look very comfortable!! Then a long ball forward is heading towards Evans and a chasing forward. All he has to do is put a toe on it for a corner or throw in. Well, this now unacceptable as Evans lets the ball bounce again and the forward gets to the ball and sends in a cross for Winfield to equalise. Have I just seen that? Sorry, but Will you are not the player you were last season. Then we have Captain Reynolds who was also awesome last season, but has had a few mistakes this year, but none worse than the giving away of a penalty and only a crap referee, who was surrounded by the opposition, saved Reynolds from a red card. Therefore Mr Waddock please get rid of Evans who has cost us this year, along with his mate Captain Collusus who both have mistakes in them, more than Joe Hart. Then you can go and get Parry from Dover and play him along side Fowler. Then get Fejiri from Dagenham, then get Kabamba, who was signed to get us promoted and was then hardly played and yet he proved his worth against Ebbsfleet. Then go to Reading and get Ward on a season long loan, then for a cheeky chat with his Irish compatriot young Brendan Rodgers and get Benyu, then other potential new signings could be Carter from Woking, but he will cost money, or maybe Ricky Miller, then go for Parry from Dover and that free agent Blissett. Also if we have the dosh, maybe we can get Bonne from Leyton Orient, as he could only have been given a one year contract, and he definitely knows where the onion bag is!!!!! Finally Do not go and get Kanu, as he did not want to be with us anymore and the grass is not greener in Peterborough.

Thank you Kingfield Shot, that's taken a lot of weight off Waddock's mind, you've done his homework for him. :D

Get Carter !

Worth it just for the melt down in Surrey. Let's start a new 500 club with the money ring fenced for a one-off purchase. We wouldn't even have to play him - send him out on loan to Torquay or any other NLS team :lol:

Bonne still has another year on his Orient contract.

No thank you, but have I done his homework for him? All I have done is made the power of suggestion in words. I am just fed up with our players needlessly fouling and giving away unnecessary free kicks from which the opposition score, all this season and all last season. Also when players have had their time, then it is time to find replacements, and with our two centre halves that time is now!!!!!!!! So Kellerman wants to go then fine, but his two red cards last season came from poor touches and then trying to rectify his mistake, then against Ebbsfleet, another poor touch causes him to foul the opponent and hurt himself, so much so that he has to be replaced, well played son. Thanks for your time and efforts young man.

I wonder if Gary is looking at any of those Watford under-23s who have been released. With Joel Grant and Bernard Mensah GW has a good record of finding gems from that source
