    Training with another club = we are not going to sign him.

    Has he gone to Barnsley?

    Either He didn’t impress Warney or they are being stupid in waiting to make their minds up

    There's all this talk of a 'lightning speedy' winger we've brought in. Plays well in both reserve games and scoring, then we have this statement....

    '"I liked him as a lad and as a player. If he did sign tomorrow, he's a long way off being in the first team, but he's someone we could possibly work with'

    So he runs backwards, has one leg and offers nothing compared to what we call good wingers in our current side. You can't make this up can you? Well Warne can. I thought we were building for the future? This lad is willing to come to the UK to progress in English football and we say 'be seeing you'.

    He's now at another club training elsewhere, what's the betting they sign him.

    If he has all this pace and skills with the ability to score, why did we waste this lads time if we've let him go elsewhere? He's got bags of youth on his side, the ability to work with him and progress his career whilst playing for us, and more importantly he would cost nothing.

    Well at least he passed the likability score!

    Miles away from the first team!!

    Sounds just like what we need.

    He's probably put rings around most of our first team...

    But he's a winger Brin.

    So will possibly displace a Warne favourite like Newell, Taylor etc.

    So the fudging around the issue continues with a few more smokescreens like this.

    Keeps the fans (reasonably) happy

    So many great managers on here it's scary, think you're all on the wrong job.

    Thanks for the article Paul.


    In Warne I trust. If he says he's miles away from the first team and he's a player they can possibly develop then that's good enough for me.

    Good Luck to the lad in gaining employment whichever club he ends up at.

    The last time he signed a young, fast, tricky winger who was one for the future after he trained with us a few times was Alex Bray.

    He did a similar thing with Onariase (Yes I know he's not a winger)

    You can't blame him for being wary. People on here criticise Warne for not learning from his mistakes, but then they have a go a him for not throwing a contract at a young lad nobody has ever heard of after a couple of reserve games.

    Yes that's very true, but after the failure to sign anybody in the last window a lot of people on here were saying that investing in young and eager players was a better option.

    People acting up like we've just let the next Ronaldo go! If he was that good he wouldn't be looking for a contract in the backwaters of South Yorkshire.

    Yep, like Jamie Vardy


    Yes I know what you mean though, but Warne seemed to like him. Seems our club is a bit risk averse, which may be no bad thing.

    I think some need to stop reading on here, they seem to think we canít have opinions or have a laugh.

    Why Towner posts on here is beyond me

    Bray was a young speedy winger and one for the future. I can see the reason for the reluctance to spend the budget but you have to speculate occasionally and losing out on Jamie Vardy is the prime example of what could have been.

    Fair point about Vardy, and yes it would seem typical of RUFC to let the next Ronaldo slip through our proverbial fingers.
