Whilst it always sad to see half descent players leave I feel Lyle will be more of a miss than Ryan as for Brad I hope things turn sour for him at welling he is no friend of this club and shouldn’t be allowed near this club ever again

i agree

Players come and go. Its absolutely no surprise that Lyle and Ryan want to stay in the National League. I have no doubt that they are on more money there.

I am disappointed in Welling - Brad (and his team) - though. For the ETFC Chairman to draw attention to their most recent behaviour is unheralded. Technically Welling may have done nothing wrong, but its the absence of the expected courtesy which makes no friends in this situation.

You never know, we may well yet see Lyle, Ryan and maybe even Brad back at ETFC before too long!

Could this just be the catalyst. How many more players will we let go. I think the the club is nearing the turning point and if we are not careful could be on the way back. If this is allowed to happen again I can see a plea to raise more funds will fall on deaf ears. What would be the point!!!!???

Unless or until we reach the top of the pile, there will always be bigger clubs able to pick off our best talent. I can't see that there's anything we can do about this. We just have to live with it, I'm afraid. We can't offer more of the squad contracts because we can't afford it and they wouldn't accept them anyway - very few players at this level would. Just take a look at the Maldon & Tiptree squad facing us in a few days. Its unrecognisable from the side which did so well in the FA Cup last season - because their best players were recruited up the pyramid and had to be replaced.

The loss of Ryan and Lyle gives others in the squad an opportunity to step-up and frees up a little of the budget.

When Lyle came to us he had been struggling after injuries. It took a while, but I'm glad that we managed to bring the best out of a player with great potential. Ryan has improved no end since joining from Canvey - did Brad actually sign him before he left us???

Quinton left in May 2017

 

"He had also had experience at Biggleswade Town prior to his move to QEII in June 2017 and has now made over 100 appearances for the club."     Is what is said about Ryan.    Just wonder how many players in total Quinton has taken.....you'd think there weren't any other players out there beyond Donkey Lane.

Whoever signed him......2 good players left.....really hoping Scott Thomas is fit when we get back playing.

Disappointing of course but both players deserve to play at a higher level. Ryan Blackman in particular has been a first class player and captain during his time with us - I wish him the best of luck and hope to see him back one day (the non-league roundabout being what it is).

Percy and Scott Thomas are more than capable of filling in for Ryan, let’s see who comes in to fill the more attacking role that Della Verde had.

Andy i think if it had been some one else not much would have been said

as it was BQ and he done it once  and the way he did this  ,, buddy with the board , i think its totaly wrong

Agreed.  However, I’m sure that BQ had had discussions with players at ETFC before he left and they knew they were going to follow him. All cloak and dagger stuff. This time, he’s just another manager who does what managers do.

 

Onwards and ...............

You are probably right Andy. But since we are constantly being told we are in unprecedented times, perhaps now is a good time for smaller clubs to lobby their respective leagues to approach the FA to bring in an unprecedented rule by placing an embargo on movement of players. This would be in keeping with the Govts 3 tiering regulations ie T2 into T3 ( Kent).

Just a thought, since we are all supposed to be in it together. We might as well use the incredible laws being made made by ministers and civil servants.

Although my post was meant to be tongue in cheek,  since most of my working life was taken up by challenging such laws,  my suggestion may not be so preposterous. After all the two players in question have been put in danger of the virus whilst still under our joint registration.  Good God!!! we could even possibly sue for compensation.  It's never over until the Fat............etc.  Where's a local lawyer when you want one?????

It was tongue in cheek Andy and perhaps somewhat over indulgent.

I was just airing my thoughts as stimulation by considering the possibility as to how we could get some money out of the situation.  It has nothing to do with whether one plays football or not but I was thinking about whether the duty of care obligations of both parties in a joint venture applies, ie  In a Duel Registration,  could be a cause for retribution.

On second thought though I feel OT's suggestion probably has more merit so my comments are best left alone and disregarded .

However when, as you say "what managers do", in my book appears at best derisive and at least unethical and needs challenging.

But then my beliefs and old habits die hard.

Interested to hear what BQ said about the signings of Ryan & Lyle: https://www.wellingunited.com/wufc-tv-interview-bradley-quinton/

Suggests that Welling were in regular contact with Town prior to the signings and will be looking to return the favour and dual-register some of their players with ETFC when we re-start.

I'll believe it when I see it.
