We could have signed him. He wanted to come here. We chose calvin andrew instead.


Yes and Luton get roughly £350k from the deal.

We had no chance of signing Andre Gray from Luton Town in 2013. We would have needed to pay a big transfer fee. We did not sign anybody in the January transfer window that season and we ended up selling our best player to Chesterfield for peanuts the following season.

He probably did, but as stated, I doubt we could afford the transfer fee.

Luke Beckett wanted to come but successive managers failed to take him up on his Staglove.

Apparently, he's not bothered now.

I suspect our budget was much lower then. Anyway water under the bridge now. Best to appreciate who we have now.

He wanted to come when at Grays.
He was good pals with Aaron O connor
He went to luton instead

I believe Fleetwood just outbid us for Vardy

Yes they did, initially on loan. They then signed him permenantly for £30k.

He wanted to come when Lindon was here... before he signed for Looooooun from Hinckley. Was friends with Lindon but wasn't a Cox type player and Cox went for Ross Dyer instead :oops:

Andre Gray signed for Luton from Hinkley Town in March 2012 for £30,000. We signed Matt Green for a similar fee in December 2011.

A better argument might be that we should have signed Andre for £30k in March 2012 instead of splashing the cash on Jake Speight the following season. However we went up as Champions and Luton finished 7th!! :lol:

I have nothing but praise for Coxy getting us out that league but not getting Gray and his treatment of Clucas, shows how short sighted he is as manager and why he will never really be a good league manager imo.

That's no different to most managers i'm afraid - they all have faves and clubs, and all across the country there are talented players who are let go because they don't get on with the gaffer, or fit in their formations, or weren't their signings.

I don't think Cox was any exception bud

Surely you can't remember what the lad looks like, Tater - cos your autographed picture of him has so many lipstick kiss marks on it :P

It's horses for courses. Paul Cox is a very very good non-league manager. He does not know the EFL as well. However he has still finished the highest in League 2 to date since our return to the league despite the big talk from Adam Murray and Steve Evans. However if we do not finish in the top seven this year then I will be chucking myself off the top of the West Stand. JR and 2,500 other Stags fans will probably be standing next to me. :lol:

Dean Saunders said this morning on talk top 4 he tried to sign Gray when at Wrexham . They wanted 50k for him but his chairmen wouldn't stump up.

Is that before or after he made Gareth Bale the player he is today. Saunders is full of it.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).
