Thread: Jayden Stockley

    Re: Jayden Stockley

    Good business all round. Picked him up for free, got him scoring goals and shipped him out for a wedge.

    Got to say though that it would have been better if he and Stockley could have formed one of those deadly strike partnerships but hey ho.

    60k isn't a wedge

    What happens if Stockley gets injured? Would we like to have Reid as back up?

    Conveniently forgetting a prolific Robbie Simpson?

    But a very unhappy Reid I would guess who wouldn't play with the heart he did when he started the season.

    60k is a guess. I used "wedge" as an unspecified amount.

    Can't see that FGR's position was necessarily that strong either. You have a Chairman who had heavily bank rolled a club over a number of seasons to achieve his dream of getting of getting into the Football League, only to face the real prospect of relegation back down to the Conference. He was prepared to spend big in the window to avert that happening.

Let me repeat, I'm not knocking Stockley at all, but we have to be fair to Reid, who in my opinion did nothing wrong before he was transferred. ?
    From memory I believe Reid played a good ten games or so (the first five ish without Stockley)without scoring a single goal! Far from being rewarded with a place on the bench as you say most managers would have dropped Reid well before Tiz lost patience with him.

    Actually it was 12 games without a goal, 16 if you don't count the tinpot trophy game v. Chelsea kids.

    He got 3 goals after Stockley arrived (first game 2nd Sept), 2 v. FGR and 1 v. Barnet on 12th Sept when Stockley got the winner.

    You're wrong again. He scored 7 goals in the first 7 league games. Then Stockley came onto the scene and it all changed. The point is he was doing well until Stockley arrived. Please check your facts first.
