Where's Acworth when you need him?

So following the events of this weekend which non league players are going to improve us?

A few names to conjure with:

Tyler Harvey

Matthew Lench

Blair Turgott

The Prodigal Pig

  • Blair Turgott was impressive for Bromley last season and was snapped up by Stevenage. Not sure what’s happened to see him loaned out to Boreham Wood so quickly.
  • I always do wonder with us how carried away we get when a player has a decent(ish) game against us. This isn't aimed at you Len but I heard so many people around me make generic comments like, 'Oh that no.29 of theirs would be good for us'

    Why? Just because he puts in a decent shift in a cup game against a higher league opposition when players from the non leagues are likely to raise their game anyway, doesn't mean he's suddenly going to be a useful addition to a league one team challenging for promotion.

    Same with that guy who was the winger for Dagenham a few years back when we beat them 4-1 in the league cup at our ground. Admittedly we had been linked with him, but he was hardly noticeable on the night and I can't even remember his name or know where he is now, yet we have all these bland generic comments like, 'oh, he'd be a useful addition'

    odd

    I agree with you and quite deliberately categorised the thread as Fun, Jokes and Captions for just that reason.

    Mr Acworth has always liked a non-league player so I picked the ones I noticed over the weekend.

    Jodi Jones was the Daggers player. Big money move to Coventry, and still starring for them (in the cup yesterday).

    Mr Acworth talks a good game. I distinctly recall him in 2012 confiding to our party in the Covered End that Solly and Wiggins were off to Man United for £4 million, with a little-known youngster by the name of Paul Pogba coming the other way. "Nailed on certainty", he assured us. Pogba later returned to Man United from Juventus for a then world record fee of £89.3 million.
  • I'm sure we were actually linked with getting Pogba in on loan in 2011/2012 or around that time, not long before he left United for Juve.

    Did the same with Lokko from Maidstone, loaned him to Dagenham.
  • Blair Turgid is shit I have unfortunately seen him play about 10 times, just no!

    I dunno he's been doing quite well for me @ Stevenage on FIFA 18

    Pogba didn't want to move south! ;)
