Christ what meltdown from some. Let's so who we do sign, eh?

It's not a melt down as you put it, but emergency signing is laughable Keates offered him a contract to stay, the player wanted to stay also, so if only an emergency signing why would Keates want him to say??? In Keates we trust is like stable strong stable strong just soundbites. I await to see if he can attract the quality needed on the cheap, I suspect a lot of players want more money than he is getting paid as manager.

It's already been stated that it wasn't about money.

It's probably down to money offered, it's becoming more obvious as each player don't agree terms we are trying to buy quality on the cheap as in everything you get what you pay for, we're are becoming like a pound shop club.
Penn started off well and is one reason we climbed away from the bottom, but he had crap around him.
I await to see who under 36 with quality who will join us, my ST application stays in the draw until I see evidence of ambition.

His January signings were adequate - they kept us up.. We were lower/mid table and his signings were always likely to be young loan players(Massanka /Shenton or players whose better days were behind them Mccloed.) So to get players like Penn or Jennings here in January with no chance of going up was good business. It may be down to money being offered that he is not staying but it might be that is limited due to Keates wanting to pay more for a goalscorer or top creative midfielder.Last season we appeared to pay over the odds for the quality of players who came here. It is clear Keates is not prepared to do that.

I misread what you had put and thought you had said they were poor signings.

He wasn't going to say the contract offer wasn't good enough is he? The manager stated by offering a contract that he wanted him to stay don't matter what we think of him... Keates the soundbite "in who we trust"" wanted him, the player stated before the offer he loved it here and wanted to stay... So it has to be the contract offered not good enough to put pen to paper. Possibly he has been offered more elsewhere we will see. But every season we can't seem to attract the quality needed to this club. That's concerning unless were happy to stay non league.

More likely he has been offered something closer to his home in York, or a longer contract, or a combination of the two.

You're probably right, a lot of players would command a higher wage than the manager. This happens throughout football.

Are you suggesting Keates wouldn't pay anyone more than he earned, regardless of the quality of the player?

Exactly. If he had been offered a poor contract then why would he have even mentioned it? He could have just done the generic enjoyed my time here and thank the fans message.
