It's a peculiar dilemma, isn't it? No one quite knows how old he is, not how resilient his body is. He's not played many games over the past four or five years so we don't even know any longer how good he is, yet somehow signing for Newport is not in the equation presumably because it will be perceived as damaging his brand.

In a year's time I doubt he will even have a brand.

I agree with you jim! 2k a week is better than sfa plus he gets himself match fit, the same goes for ledley.

Problem is we’ve already been told we’re right up to our limit, not sure we’ve got £2k a week to be able to pay out.
Besides, if Bony is in talks with other, much higher clubs than us, why would he risk injury and losing out on a potentially large signing on fee and wage playing LG 2 football for £1k/2k a week?

He would only get match fit by playing a regular 90 minutes in L2 and displacing Amond, Matt or Abrahams. Which one would you pick?

If we managed to sign a player of his quality then any one of them.

Sometimes when things are going well we become greedy: remembber Waddle and Johnson. It can backfire. I don't think it's feasible.

Apologies if wrong but once he signed for us and played he couldn't then move on until the next transfer window.
The money talked about would be peanuts to him.
Its just not going to happen.
Regarding who would be dropped like Exile said any of them.

A friend of mine who is a Swansea fan told me bony is well into his 30s, so without a club and a free agent he can sign for anyone at any time yet he's still training with us which tells me no so called top clubs want him, we are into the third month of the season if a club wanted him he would have signed for them by now.

I remember some West Ham fans used to claim Titi Camara was years older than his published age.

If we were going for a free agent I'd much rather go for Joe Ledley .With Labadie and Sheehan nearing suspension he would be ideal to stiffen up our midfield.Unfortunately I think he also is out of our price range.

Ledley left Derby in January and hasn't played for anyone since.Must have a injury as he would have been snapped up in January or during the summer.If he is near fitness,I would think Cardiff or Swansea might have a look.

Read in the Bristol Evening Post that Bristol City might be looking to sign him up as they are short of strikers.
