That's the third player from Huyton we've had in quick succession. Lets hope it's Clint Hill he takes after and not Cole Stockton. :cheer:

Good signing hopefully, still adds no pace to our back line let's hope his brain and organisation can counter that issue.
Can we have a striker now please?

Perhaps a little surprised that either the player or the club (or both?) didn't want to commit to the full season for whatever reason. Certainly gives the game at Boundary Park in early October a bit of an edge.

I suppose it works for both parties. If he's shite we can get rid with no great outlay and if he plays well he'll be off in January!

Interesting read.
“I’m very self-critical, I set myself high standards and I fell well below that tonight. I’m a big boy, I can take that on the chin.”

A shame the interviewer didn’t ask “Which one?”

Get the fat get running up a few fells for the next month and watch his intake afterwards. He'll soon drop the poundage. I'd also fine him on the weekly weigh-in when he's still overweight.

By the time he is fully fit his contract will be up!

I do think that he has the quality albeit on a lesser scale than Billy Wright and Warren Aspinall but he hasn't been without a club till he signed for us and when he was made to train with the Oldham kids he should have done just that - trained hard.

I am okay if he has an attitude problem as most players do have their own ways and quirks all I am bothered about are the performances and the results but to get yourself in that sort of shape then he has let himself down more than anything.

Lots of comments around me last night about his lack of professionalism to let himself get so out of shape. However, his expetise and skill makes up for that at our level, and he limits his running about with great reliance on his positional sense. I have to say I am impressed and his signing could make our season, especially if he sheds a couple of stone weight.

To some extent he might be built that way, he looks a good old fashioned centre half. Look at Akinfenwa
Pleased for Gerrard he's come good after that debut v Blackburn.

Aye I know what you mean Dancing and to be fair don't think he needs to lose that amount, he was quite mobile last night, and I thought his positioning on the pitch was exceptional.
In a strange sort of a way similar to Pete Murphy, we all knew he didn't have the pace so he made up for it with being in exactly the right place at the right time

He's played most of his career in the two divisions above us and you don't do that if you haven't got good footballing ability. It it probably because he is so out of shape that we got him in the first place along with already having worked with JS before.

I think you're right Seesaw in that he may be built a bit that way, looking at pics of him through differing clubs, he's never been slim. Having said that, eh's still had more timber last night than he seems to have had in his career, so I'm sure there's a bit of weight to come off. I imagine living a professional footballer's lifestyle will make him loose it pretty quickly. And if that makes him a little sharper, then great!

I did notice he didn't quite stretch to a ball early in the game which made me think he wasn't quite as fit as a pro should be, but it didn't matter as Liddle picked it up, and apart from that - don't think he really put a foot wrong all night. That 90 Im sure would have done him the world of good again.

Isn't it Holdsworth or Clibbens that should have been aware of his sacking and the connotations involved in the outcome?

Maybe there is but I doubt it, unless it is something really shocking then move on as our ethnic players don't seem to have a problem with him and that speaks volumes.

According to the Oldham forum they were going to sack him anyway for another indiscretion. This then came to light and was an even a better reason to dismiss him apparently.

Holdsworth's working 24/7 on the contracts so we are led to believe.

Gerrard had 14 days to appeal his dismissal by Oldham but didn't bother. You would have though he'd want to clear his name of something like that (unless he's guilty).

Aye but the wording seemed to suggest he wouldn’t contest any ban. At present there’s nothing to be banned for.

Would appealing his dismissal have potentially scuppered any move and made him ineligible to move until the next Window in Jan?

He.s never denied the original tweets that he was suspended and then sacked for and didn't appeal against because he clearly didn't want to be there under the present manager he.d made that very clear.

Seems pretty clear part of it would be he got some sort of payment to walk and keep quiet about what had gone on [ hence his tweet about he.ll talk about it one day no doubt that day is te the day the gag runs out and he was making sure they knew that] then look at the timeline hours after they announce they'd sacked him we announce we.d signed him.

It has the look of a solicitor and the club just signing a document that morning agreeing that he agreed to be sacked, would receive a small sum in compensation and as from that point be free to sign for another club just before the window shut or are people as nieve to think Oldham didn't help facilitate him signing for us as a very convenient way of bringing the matter to a close or that the deal hadn't been done days if not weeks beforehand

And the leaking to the press of the subsequent possible tweets is clearly nothing more than sour grapes on their part now hes moved on and is doing ok.

Why the hell people don't just do what I do and have a mirror twitter account that if anybody wanted to try and prove that it was actually me tweeting from would find it very difficult to do which means in effect i can tweet what the [censored] I like about who the [censored] I like with virtually no chance of any comeback.

Well, the last time I was sacked I gave them 2 choices i.d go quietly with three months pay and a reference or as far as they were concerned world war three would start within a matter of hours. I had the money in cash and a nicely typed reference before I left the building. Doesn't everyone make contingency plans for when they know its coming?

And given what's gone on at Oldham in the last couple of years i.d imagine he.s got plenty of ammunition stored up. Arent, plod already looking into the last lot who owned them for god knows what offences?

Whilst he’s not Hill level, he’s been decent. Maybe hasn’t any pace, but makes up for that in experience.

That's great news. He's been superb.
Even on Saturday he won everything. His positioning is superb, he wins most things in the air and he puts his body on the line.
Perfect foil for Parkes, Liddle and Gillesphy. We need a no nonsense tough, solid defender who won't get bullied.
That Cambridge away game was a perfect example. He was the only one who could cope with Jabo's power and strength and kept us in the game in the 1st half.
And he doesn't shut up on the pitch and we need that.
Not as elegant, athletic or as easy on the eye as Hill, but for me, his impact has been just as important.
