I love Matt Green but v few if any on this board would have kept Matt based on his performances last year. So grow up and move on
I don't think the argument is we should have have kept him, i think the argument is Evans said he was getting better forwards in to replace him and as far as i can see Angol, Spencer and OSJ aren't.
So you think Hemmings isn't better than Green ? Really ? .
I'm sorry but your argument doesn't add up .
First , for whatever reason , last season , Green was poor . You don't keep someone on high wages who is not pulling their weight . He looked disinterested.
I'm a huge Green fan but even I could see he needed to move . Evans saw the talent in Rose and Rose has become twice the player he was last season . He is far better than Green .
Evans tried to bring in Marquis, Collins , Hylton . Unfortunately this didn't happen but all these players are better than Green . These are the players you should be comparing Green with .
If you were offered any of these players or Hanson instead of Green then surely you would of jumped at that ?
You can not compare Green who was our main striker with the likes of Stirling James . He was signed for one for the future .
Spencer never had a great scoring record , so again I don't think he was signed as our main striker . More of a squad player
Angol in my opinion is as good if not better than Green . Their style of play are completely different
Green is exciting to watch where Angol looks lazy . His style of pkay will always divide oppions . Lincoln fans were divided about him although he score one in two .If Angol had played every game this season I would be quite confident that he would of matched Green in scoring . His goal ratio is as good .
Cowley wanted to sign Angol .
Green will always be a legend in my eyes . He may of needed a new challenge . Saying that , I do wonder what a job he may of done for us this season with the likes of , McDonald , Anderson and the other wingers supplying the ammo but we have to look at his performances from last season .
On the basis of that and the wages he was on also on the players Evans tried to get in that it was tge right decision
