Default Re: Russell Penn leaving -great news

The great news here is that he went quickly. The worst scenario in the closed season is for players to mess you about, Pogba being the worst.

Penn would have been ok and it looks like Keates offered exactly the right amount of money, so that his head was turned, but we didn't sign a 2nd Div reject for too much.

Its utter utter garbage to say we can't compete financialy, how do the poorer clubs sign players? Keates, like any manager will try and sign the very best he can, but we may end up with the next best.

So what that means is we offered the right wages he just wanted a bit extra, which we felt he wasn't worth. Doesn't sound like we are struggling to compete.

I think this is a blow. I got the impression Keates was going to offer him the captain's armband and build a team around him.

He can now give it to Disley, who would be the better captain. Just needs to sign him first..

Nobody knows. Nobody knows what was offered, nobody knows what his demands were. It may be financial but neither party wants to admit it for various reasons. I don't think it's a disaster but future signings will show how well keates is spending the budget. He seems to have come out of the failure to sign a target smelling of roses without anybody knowing the ins and outs.

Default Re: Russell Penn leaving

Usually we sign local players - this side of Manchester/Liverpool for Northern based players or Birmingham for players south of Wrexham. Last few seasons under Mills this changed. In the last 2 seasons we signed 4 players from Welling and also last season Harvey from Plymouth and White from Livingston. Penn was York based so the cost of relocating would have been a factor to club/player. In the previous season we tried to sign Rhys Taylor and this was an issue in trying to sign him before moneybags Fylde signed him.Again if we start forking out to much in relocating players this could impact on the budget. I can't imagine White, Harvey,etc moving here without some relocation expense.
