Liam

Recommended Posts

Well said,i think your absolutely right.It's just annoying for the fans where they see all of our best players leaving and the replacements(or lack of!),no offence to them,not being proven,or too old.Let's hope andy has something planned. Lets all get behind the team and andy tonight!

C'mon fleet!

All I can do is stand by my comments from a couple of years ago that Liam is/was a fine prospect PROVIDING he had the neccessary application (ie: He learnt about how to be a footballer.)

 

I can only speak for myself, but I am reserving judgement on some of the players movements this summer.

 

However, on this occasion if you are upset that we are losing a player who refused to play if he was in the slightest bit injured, was a poor trainer and in my opinion often showed the club and officials and therefore us, the punters, scant respect, then I think that Andy and Brian have done a good bit of business. I will miss his Mum and Dad being around though, top people they were.

 

 

I could be wrong but lets see what success he achieves at Barnet.(and I hope someone with his talent does, despite what I have said.)Its not sour grapes its just that speaking as someone who had limited ability, it really frustrates me when I see someone who doesn't make full use of his God given talent. If he gets 30 odd goals this year good luck to him I will be happy to say I was wrong.

 

But I do agree WE MUST have someone signed who can put the ball in the net with the money from this one!

I bumped into Liam and his girlfriend on the way to work about 5.30pm.

 

He will be at the Millwall game (unlike myself) but will obviously not be playing.

 

Liam wanted full-time football, the club wanted the cash. The deal was done chairman to chairman with Andy in full consultation.

 

We should be grateful of the £23,000 - at the end of the season he was going to leave for nothing! (Liam's words.)

While I am sad to see Liam leave, I also believe that £23k was too good an offer to turn down. Liam wants to persue his career full-time and I don't think that can really be held against him. I wish him good luck in the future. Possible replacements anybody? I'll start with Brett Angell if we are looking for a target man. Recently released by QPR, he turned doewn a move to Linfield in the Irish league. Perhaps we can get Pat Gradley to sell the club to him (not literally!!). Mind you, that's if Dagenham havn't signed him yet!!!

How does he figure that then?

Seeing the press release, its definitely good business for us - alright, only £17 K up front, and part of that goes to Herne Bay, but having the additional appearance related fee, plus (potentially most important of all, if Liam progresses as well as Mr Bullard, or even better, as well as Malcolm Christie after his move from Nuneaton), the sell on clause could be ultra beneficial to the Fleet.

 

I too hope that Liam doesnt spoil his progression through failings in his temeperament(and not just from the viewpoint of the possible financial benefits we gain if he does well). He's clearly basically a decent lad - witness his appearance at the launch of the Fleet Trust, and other references previously to helping out at local charity events, etc, and if he keeps his head screwed on straight, he has the opportunity to achieve something with his football career too.

 

Dont waste that chance, Liam

That should have said 'end of LAST season'.....if he had not signed the new contract.

Say what you like about Liam,but whenever he played,you EXPECTED things to happen,and usually did.He gave 110% and though he didn't get as many goals as he should have done he made chances for others.My only gripe is that he was sold at a bargain price,£50,000 would have been more realistic.

Anyway,good luck Liam and hope you make it to League Status

I think that being with a full time side and him now being able to completly concentrate on his footy he will turn out to be a decent striker.

 

Good Luck

Apparently, he popped into one of his locals in the town and appologised for his transfer. That just about sums the lad up. Lovely fella. Good luck to ya, mate. Myself, I'd rather play full time football for Barnet than clean cars for a living. Time to go full time?? Oh for the money..... does anyone know a wealthy Russian?

As much as it pains us to see a player leave, it's the way of the game. I wish Liam all the best in the future.

 

 

And perhaps in a while, players will be leaving other teams to come to us so as to further their career. We'll get there

Apparently, his first game in a Barnet shirt is going to be against Arsenal. What a debut, eh? Talking about arses and shirts, some toe-rag ripped my washing line down and nicked my Fleet away shirt today. I hope the little sh*t catches something from it. Knowing what I've done in it he probably will!!
