Seems weird we've already offered him a contract rather than a 1-2 week trail to see how he gets on then make a decision. Sammo must be confident he'll turn out to be a decent player.

It's presumably those very contacts that have kept him in our vision while others forgot about him. Unless someone is alleging possible financial backhanders (and you'd have to have solid evidence before doing that) I can see no problem with his contacts pushing him in our direction. If he makes the grade it's a win-win scenario.
If he gets some decent crosses in from the right we'll be quids in.
Not me,just stating that MC has a Shed load of contacts before i get threatened with legal action

I'm sure I read the player himself say it was not what you know but who you know.

Good luck to the lad as it's definately a position we could do with some quality in.

One thing ive noticed and i personally wish Sammo would stop making is "chance" signings. This is one key part of being a successful manager and ultimately where you'll be judged in the long run. O'Flynn, Lumley, Herbert, Harris, and now Slowe, all have two things in common, cheap and unproven.

Nathaniel Wedderburn looks like he may have something about him, but yet again a mere novice in the game - bar a decent loan spell at Hereford, he has barely played much competitive first-team action.

I understand it's worth taking a punt on a player every so often, as you can come by a gem, but most of the short-term/permanent signings since Sammo took charge have all been relatively gamblÚs.

Admittedly the loan signings have been excellent for us last season, but were more down to the contacts of Malcolm Crosby who's obviously in the loop with the youth set at Middlesbrough.

The point is i'm hoping to hear of a few more established signings, instead of looking them up on wikipedia.  Roll Eyes

Can I just point out that Harris was a Stuart gray signing that Sammo chose to extend the contract on.

And another thing... why is everyone saying all this stuff about this lad Slowe? He hasnt even pulled on a match day kit yet. Do you all want him to fail? Its a bit disappointing that you dont even know anything about the lad as a player and already we are on his back.

Lets see what he is like shall we and leave the people who get paid to be our clubs management team to the footballing decisions.

A good debate is what we're here for and this is almost like a slangiong match with no FACTS  Grin

Jesus, do some people really think Sammo would sign this guy if he hadn't taken a good look at him? Relax, he's identified the areas we need to strengthen and he's signing people to play in them positions, which makes a change from previous managers.

Exactly - looks like a really dodgy way into a club, but doesn't mean he can't be a world beater. Time will tell.

Hello All,
            I have been reading 'fans' posts. To all you doubters, give the lad a chance, you are slagging him off before you see him kick a ball! I'M SURE HE WILL BE MORE POSITIVE THAN YOU ARE!

I hope he is, otherwise he'll run in totally the wrong direction at all times. I hope he doesn't just score about 20 tap ins, eh? (Or is it taps in?)
