Just received message saying player who visited rockcliffe today left today to speak to another other club.

Asked if that means the deal is off and was informed that he's got another offer on the table and he wants to speak to them before deciding. 

Why can't we close out deals when players visit rockcliffe? Free agents are also turning us down, it's starting to become a little ridiculous 

Cant you tell tell us his name?

When players come to Rockliffe they should be sold on joining us. Should not be even thinking of looking at other options they should be telling their agent I'm signing for the Boro. So definitely is something going wrong at rockliffe. We must be offering proper low wages most likely.

Kevin Stewart. 

Deals not dead, but we had hoped to have him with the team before travelling down to Cornwall next week. That might not happen now.

Because he has other offers. You just said so! If you had two job offers on hand would you reject one of them out of hand or give them both a chance before deciding?

Why should they?  They'd be bloody daft if they weren't considering other options with the amount of money in the game.

The club is useless.

Yeah it’s bonkers. Imagine a world where employees look at various job offers on the table. We need to tell other clubs not to bid for the same players and to make sure we get the player we need to hold a gun to his head. We have a divine right to get the players over other clubs.

We need to be giving them more of a experience when they come I think. Get them to have a go on golf course 😂. Take them on a tour of local area or something. Show them what it will be like living here day to day sort of thing.

It’s hardly surprising that his agent has tried hard to get other offers for his client and has probably informed every championship club that Stewart has an offer on the table so if they want him they need to act fast. And then one club has taken the bait. He would be a poor agent if he didn’t try hard to get multiple offers. We probably did try to push him by bidding for Williams.

I'm criticising the club for continuously failing to sign players, not the players for not signing.

They've been shocking at it for years.

Yeah it's annoying but if he was up here and his agent got another offer, I'd go hear them out as well.

    • I understand that, but I'm pretty sure all 3 were offered new contracts at a reduced salary as "punishment" (for lack of a better term). I believe the other 2 accepted that but Keogh didn't. Hence why he then got the chop, and it seems that the reasons behind that where for the same reasons you've listed above. They all got the same treatment until he didn't accept the "punishment" so he got his contract ripped up. He obviously felt at the time that was unfair hence the appeal to Derby (which was rejected), then the appeal to the EFL (which was also rejected) and finally to where we are today via an employment tribunal. I'm not arguing that it should or shouldn't have gotten to that stage, what I'm arguing is that he isn't blameless in the situation he has found himself in and that this will probably not get resolved anytime soon.
    • I never like to be up against Grabban. Quality striker at this level. Always seem to score
    • Someone on fmttm is saying it’s Kebano, looked quality after the restart last season 
    • Good line up think we'll get the win tonight and a few goals.
