Title: Post Darlington
Post by: Blue Moon on August 31, 2019, 06:33:18 PM
Another great result against one of the big boys. Don't know if it's my imagination but on the post match interview on YouTube IC wasn't as buoyant as I'd have expected him to be, and he seemed a bit coy about Marriott's injury, I do hope the rumours that were flying around on the live commentary are only rumours.

Roll on Tiesday, another 3 points

Agreed, Blue Moon.... the Marriott rumours are worrying.  Kelly looked good yesterday, and certainly good enough for a first choice somewhere, albeit in this very competitive squad. He would definitely be there, in my book, if we were unlucky enough to to lose our top scorer.  Letís cross a couple of fingers.  Surprised there is not more conjecture or actual news on the subject, but hopefully Iím over-blowing it......

Is Marriot not on contract ?  If so a Club would have to pay decent money to get him away.  Think he will be going nowhere

Could it be Adam Marriott was "Rested" for the Alfreton game on Tuesday and give us a chance to try something new, albeit IC did make several tweaks before and at half-time.

Seems a strange time for a League Club to be coming in for a player so soon in the Season  :dontknow:

Was it a last minute decision to rest Marriot as I don't think the team sheet appeared until about ten minutes after kick off? :dontknow:

I think that was purely down to technical issues

I thought the team lined up being announced 10 mins into the game was through the announcer being caught up in the queues at the BoxOffice

It would help if the club would deny the Marriott to Rotherham rumour but unfortunately they haven't!

Post by: KES80 on September 01, 2019, 02:47:09 PM
Perhaps they are not aware of the rumour or think it insignificant...its only been a small number of posts on the match day thread on the B and G website and a couple of follow up posts on this forum. If they responded to each rumour that appeared on here they wouldn't get anything done. :laughcry:
Title: Re: Post Darlington

They will be aware of it and it is significant.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: KES80 on September 01, 2019, 02:53:16 PM
Only significant if it's true.
For what it's worth Rotherham broke the club record for a forward in June and signed another forward in the last fortnight.

Not really sure if thatís the case Mark.  Still waiting for the Chairman to confirm the big news story that he has been banging on about for some while now.  He did say by the end of August.  Was that story fact or rumour ?

Is it a fact that Marriott is not going to Rotherham?

Transfer window closes for League One at 5pm Sept 2nd.....so guess we will know whether its fact or fiction very soon
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Mark A Hearle on September 01, 2019, 03:28:57 PM
I would refer you Mallard to the chairman 's notes in the Curzon programme ' One of my big ideas is now no longer going to happen or at least cannot happen in the precise form I wanted it to...' the article concluded ' The second piece of good news is still on and should complete at the start of October  when I hope to release the news'

Hope this of help to you.
Title: Re: Post Darlington

Cheers Mark, much appreciated.  Least thatís one rumour quashed.  I await early October with baited breath.

Post by: long suffering linnet on September 01, 2019, 04:40:56 PM
Warne stated he wants a wide attacking player.Marriot is not that.Fact.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: dillydilly on September 01, 2019, 07:29:13 PM
Whatever is best for Adam, then the club, in that order.  But all players need to think over ďupwardĒ moves carefully, because so many swop being popular and successful at one club, only to find themselves as bit-part players at a higher club.  Drinkwaterís move from Leicester captain to Chelsea reserves is a case in point, or, closer to home, Cameron Norman...
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Mallard on September 01, 2019, 07:38:37 PM
If Rotherham are prepared to pay good money for a 28 year old then we should take it.  Could allow us  to build the squad strength.   However I have big doubts Paul Warne would look to bring in a player of that age from Non League Football.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: KES80 on September 01, 2019, 08:05:53 PM
I agree with all of that.....Warne has Carlton Morris, ex Norwich and a big money signing forward from Plymouth on the books too.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Mallard on September 01, 2019, 08:14:32 PM
KES if you keep agreeing with me people will think we are one and the same person.  I donít think Morris is ex Norwich but more like out on loan from Norwich to Rotherham.

I thought Rothers were brining in a wide player from Rangers on loan. 
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: KES80 on September 01, 2019, 08:40:14 PM
Certainly looking for a wide pacey player apparently...maybe there's another rumour in the offing...do we know of anyone fitting that description who is not currently available ????
Re Marriott I kinda don't want it to be true, cos it would be great to keep everyone together....but if it's false I would like to know how it started, cos it's potentially disruptive

Sounds as if George Green could be finished at Boston.

23 year old attacking midfielder.

Could he be one worth considering?

B & G, if he isnít wanted at Boston, is he good enough for us, at our current standard ?  And considering we have Kelly, plus Payne and Carey.....

Apparently, being "good enough" is not the issue at Boston.

Don't worry about it. It was just an observation.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Mallard on September 02, 2019, 01:07:17 PM
Dilly that would be the same Boston where a certain Adam Marriott was deemed not good enough last season.

Transfer deadline has passed with Rotherham  earlier signing winger on loan from Rangers as Mallard predicted.
So it appears Marriott connection was a lot of hot air.
Always seems to be unnecessary and unhelpful rumours circulating from time to time, as well as a few "negative stirrers" on the live feed. I shall just add them to the list of posters I ignore in the future.

Agree that this rumour has been unhelpful and unnecessarily unsettling. I think that the specific nature of the rumour: Rotherham, gave it a credibility it didn't deserve. Whoever started it should hold their head in shame.

Title: Re: Post Darlington

The very reason why as a club we leave this sort of stuff well alone. Would like a fiver for everyone of these rumours I've heard. I am interested as to the source of the starting point of this latest tale. You know where I am.....
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Mallard on September 02, 2019, 07:42:14 PM
Fair play Mark for not responding.  If that rumour did come from inside the club then the source needs finding and a quiet word from SC offered.  Wasnít there a poster on here last season who was involved at the club.  Not sure if he is still involved directly with the Club, but he no longer posts on here.

With the Clubs stock at its highest level it is something that the team could do without.
Title: Re: Post Darlington
Post by: Paul47 on September 02, 2019, 08:01:38 PM
Canít believe people actually believed the rumour! As good a player as Adam is at this level, Rotherham were never going to sign a 28yr old non league striker.

I posted that rumour on the live feed on Saturday (as a rumour - not fact )after a little birdie came up to his seat and told me that Adam Marriott was on his way to Rotherham. Someone else increased the rumour by saying that Adam was at Rotherham having a medical (later proved wrong as Adam was at Lynn). Where my "informant" got his info  :dontknow:

I shall keep my head high, thank you Stan.
