Nathan L & Bobby D

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what they are up to? Any chance of them signing on again?

 

I believe they are the only 2 from last season's squad that there have been no updates on

Nathan & Bobby have had no connection with braintree. Bobby is out from the end of last season for some months & Nathan has not yet signed anywhere. From what i believe both looked to stay at Enfield but the loyalty was not returned from the new management

Nathan Livings is definitely NOT at Braintree and certainly didn't jump ship to follow Brad he stayed loyal to ETFC first and spoke to the new manager. Unfortunately it appears that new manager valued new players more IMO

It does not surprise me that Bobby is still unfit. It was apparent from the way he responded at the time that something serious had happened.

 

So far as Nathan Livings is concerned, without knowing why he has not been signed

it is hard to comment. The observations on the " Braintree Watch " may be an

answer. Perhaps the question should be put to the manager when the occasion arises.

 

I would have retained him if it had been my choice.

Unfortunately bobby will not be around for a few months so we can only hope he gets himself back to his best & is offered something by the new manager & valued as much as new players financially

Bumped into Nathan Livings he didn't jump ship to Braintree as has been mentioned a few times he stayed loyal to town & spoke to the new management team. He wouldn't say too much out of respect for the club chairman & fans but I don't think he felt he was wanted.

But isn't that what managers are there to do, pick and choose who they think will be best for them !

 

When Slough was in a similar position to what Enfield are going through ie change of new manager at the helm,

we kept three out of our previous squad, when I as a supporter thought we should have kept five.

Later in the season the new Slough joint managers agreed they had been hasty letting too many go. However to their credit they still got our team promoted !

 

Andy Leese is no mug on non league football players. I think some Enfield fans need to give him a chance to prove himself.

Oh and by the way I don't know Andy Leese personally.

It could be said that Brad was too close to the players and that does seem to be the case with so many of last season's squad joining him at Braintree.

 

 

If Andy is more remote and aloof that may not be such a bad thing as every game players will be playing for their place and not keeping it due to the emotions of the manager. There were many players such as Tyler and, possibly,  Kirbs who did not seem to be on Brad's must play list. Consider when Kirbs lost the captaincy and replaced by Muleba.

I get the other comments I was Just clearing up the original messages and the assumption that "everyone" had bailed to follow Brad and the question of "loyalty" I learnt a long time ago as a player and supporter that there is very little loyalty in football either way. Clubs will dump players just as easily as players will leave a club. The only loyalty is supporters and their club. As for BQ always thought he was tactically lacking which was proved in the first 20 minutes of the playoff.

The Cold End has confirmed on his site that Nathan Livings played for Bishops Stortford this afternoon - shame, good player.
