We were L1 when we signed Curo on trial and there was a bit of moaning of him being past it as he had barely scored for two seasons at L1 level including loans. The second time we knew what we were getting although there was still moaning because of his lean season at Orient and the never sign an ex player mob.Nope we signed Cureton and he was neither crocked or lost his way but he was getting on hence dropping to L2. Otherwise, we take a punt a someone whos not yet proven, they dont have to have lost their way or be crocked.
Proven goal scorers that are of a good age signing for L2 clubs are as rare as rocking horse $hit.
I was just trying to demonstrate that all the strikers we have signed that have weighed in have had all kinds of previous and doubts when signed but rarely proven - we have never really had the cash. Stockley has been the closest we have had to a signing that was more than likely to bang them in.
