Sad. Two or three years ago he could have had a few Premier League games when Sheffield United got promoted if he hadn’t pushed for a big pay increase. It’s been downhill ever since.

Mark Duffy tells a different story. Though at his age his career trajectory is hardly unusual.

Chester have secured the loan of striker, Rob Apter and have now acquired David Fitzpatrick. Two solid additions.

Elliot Osbourne-the player who never wanted to be at SFC signs for "Billy big bollocks" Parkinson at Alty. I always rated him but played for Southport FC in the wrong division-he'll be definetely suited to playing at a higher level. Alty having a go in the National Lge but will find the old chestnut of "full time" football beginning to ring in their ears..

He's had to drop a level with this move.

They need to have more of a go than they have been doing. They’ve won once since they beat us in the cup 15 games ago, and that was against 10 men relegation fodder for 80 minutes.

Could've been a great addition here, according to their Twitter they've had to fight off interest from higher division clubs. Perhaps one of those was us? Would've enjoyed seeing his magical performances in a 'Port shirt for one last season, and would've brought a wealth of non league experience to the squad.

Probably only a few of the richer clubs could afford him....Macclesfield, although lower, are backed as we all know. I doubt we would have been in for him. Not sure how an older head coming in on big wages keeps morale up inside the changing room. It's never really worked for us in the past before...obvs one or two exceptions but in recent times, it's not been a good idea to get these last payday players in.

Would love to know who you would drop to fit him in and Liam E has been a good mentor to the younger players, that's evident from how tight we are defencively now.
Keep bringing in young players and let them develop within the squad. This gives a conveyor belt or replacents for players that have to be sold on.

Realistically he's a better footballer than any of our attacking midfielders- he would slot in for Josh Hmami or Dylan Vassallo, as he can play a similar role to either. Experience wise I think it mainly comes from Russ Benjamin and Tony Mac, not sure where the idea of Liam Edwards being an experienced head comes from- he's actually played a lot less senior football than any of our other defenders and he's 2 years older than Adam Anson. Not saying he'd have been a perfect fit, but in a team like this where dynamics seem to be paramount, adding in a formerly top class Championship talent to your arsenal wouldn't go amiss- and could've been a real statement of intent and "marquee signing"- something which could've been facilitated by the Dion cash instead of fans rarely seeing sales or sell ons directly reinvested into the playing staff. Not that he'd really be costing an arm and a leg at 35 I can't imagine.
