He isn't going to sign so just a pointless media driven exercise IMO..

It's just a "" look who we've got training with us, an aging striker who used to be OK a decade ago but can't get a gig anywhere else because I still think I'm worth £50k per week''There's hardly a queue of clubs trying to sign him is there?
It's just a publicity stunt from the player and his agent trying to get him a deal because he hasn't done anything since leaving Man City, other than join any club in any league stupid enough to pay his wage demands, his performances don't justify them signing him.
I see he is wearing club training gear with his initials on them, using our training facilities but has obviously told the club he has no intension of signing for us, Why bother???
It is getting a bit of media coverage with the Argus and BBC because Pearlman is trying to find interesting articles to fill space., but no use to the club

I've seen a couple of posts online saying he's going to sign for us.

Although I agree it's unlikely, it certainly isn't out of the realms of possibility.

One thing's for sure, if he does sign then he'll score plenty of goals for us.

Went past the Welsh Fa where they were training yesterday, and he was training with us again. To my mind I think it’s a positive thing, the County players looked well comfortable and happy in his company .... and I know (albeit at a much lower level) how enjoyable and motivating it was when players from a higher level came and trained with my teams ..... hopefully his quality will rub off on them. Flynny has anyway stated that he’s helping out with working with the youngsters, (prob whilst doing his badges), don’t see why people see it as a negative tbh.

Absolutely Jim. Although perhaps you ought to check with Flynn first before posting. I mean he might appreciate those who offer a different perspective. Talented people usually do. :grin:

Seriously though

Is his influence going to make Abraham's or Proctor score more goals..........of course not. Is he going to make Podge quicker ? Opinions I know but would rather that he trained elsewhere.

I’m neutral about most of this debate. If he helps in training fine, no problem. What I don’t get is the idea that he’s too good to sign for us, after all he’s done bugger all for a long time now. Additionally I’m not sure how much of a success he’d be anyway - I certainly wouldn’t stretch the budget to tempt him even if we could.

Pro’s and con’s in this one for me too.

If some of his ‘magic’ can rub off on the players, so be it. They will probably enjoy having him around.

If what we hear about his wage demands are true, then a wide berth is needed. It looks like he has no thoughts at all of joining the club. A huge PR stunt imo.

As long as we're not paying him, and we won't be, what difference does it make him training with us?
