Seems strange. Unless another player has come available ?

...wonder if the rumour of us bidding ~450k for Grant are true and we are in for him again? younger, better sell on potential etc?

Well that's one of the weirder ones I've ever heard it's not like he is an unknown quantity hope that doesn't come back to bite us.

If a player comes but his heart is elsewhere it’s not worth having him.

Sounds like LF wanted more wages than we were prepared to offer.
We might win against Accrington next time.

Frecklington sounds like Byrom on the injury front, reading Rotherhams forum it sounds like he spends more time on the physios table than on the pitch....as good as he might be, we need players that want to be here, are not injury prone, hungry to play and where possible have some sort of sell-on potential

There is no way we would stump up that kind of money for one player

Or perhaps Chicago Fire, Foxy?

There's a rumour going round that Freck was at the ground and doing his medical when his agent interrupted to say that Lincoln had offered £500 more than we had agreed and he changed his mind and Evans shouted them out of the ground. Just a rumour like.

In code that tells me that it was Frecklington who changed his mind, not us. We'd clearly done all the due diligence, so I don't the club would change its mind overnight.

You can't blame a lad for wanting to see his career out with his hometown club.

Can't wait for Evans to write a book and hopefully all the truth comes out on every deal in his career.
He is definitely a character that is very hard to figure out.
You just can't believe any word he says.
He changed his mind this morning???
As much as I hate him you have to love him :D

:coys:

Maybe the truth is they are waiting til the replay Tuesday and if we win he can get better players.
Or should I say more expensive players.

I dont think we want a total !&@¿ing mercenary like him - a 32 year old journeyman.

Granted we need players to help us over the line into the autos, but this guy (or at least his agent) sounds a 2wat. These wage negotiations should have been done much better for all parties.
You've got to go there and come back, to know where you've been.
