Drury will leave either in summer or next year

Recommended Posts

Guest

I can see Drury leaving in the summer as a league club or a full-time team will snap him up. He quite clearly is a class above some of the other players and would not look out of place in div3. He had trials at Derby n Gills and did ok there. Got a couple of goals in gills reserves. He must get frustrated playing for us sometimes. Be interesting to see how much we wld get for him tho. prob only £10k knowing the board. what we got for Hatch was a disgrace, he had so much potential.

Frankly, given Liam's lack of experience in the Conference and lukewarm scoring record (save the last three games of last season), I think it was good business.

I agree, for someone who gets injured as much as Jamie Redknapp and had a questionable attitude I think the deal we did was a good one.

and when you take into account how much of his "disgraceful fee" was spent on Rob Howarth plus the fact that ( surprise surprise ) Liam has missed as many Barnet games through injury as he has played you would have to say that somebody at the fleet knows what they are doing.

Bearing in mind you can't command a huge fee these days, that Hatch wasn't and still isn't a proven goalscorer, and that Abbey and Haworth have scored around the same as Liam did last year, I think it was very good business by the club.

That's not what it says on the News Page <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

To be fair at the time we needed the money,remember those days before a certain mr.gladwish and our cup run when we were REALLY poor?! I think some of the comments on here about Hatch on here are a bit harsh though,we all know he was a very good player who could create something out of nothing due to his sheer effort,and you've got to remember he didn't play as many games as Abbey or Hatch...that said he was overrated.

Admittedly your right that Abbey scores more but your statistics exaggerate it a bit wink.gif If you go on conference alone; Abbey has only scored 6 conf goals in his 9starts and 9sub whilst liam scored 7 conf(17starts+5 sub)...

Well for the sake of arguement, let's call a sub appearance 1/2 a match then Ben has 6 goals in 14 1/2 matches a ratio of 0.414 whilst Liam is 7 in 19 1/2 a ratio of 0.359.

So it doesn't matter whether you count all games or just League, Ben still comes out on top.

I think the fact that Hatch's contract was due to expire soon had a lot to do with it. If we hadn't sold him when we did, he would have walked for nothing in the end.

Definatley good business, and lets face it, he wasn't as great as everyone seems to recall. His goals to chances ratio was very poor. But his work ethic made him a fleet favorite.

I'm not one to be easily offended. blush.gif However, many people who visit this forum would regard the signature of the dude who began this thread as being in somewhat questionable taste. I know my own isn't exactly angel.gif but come on, chaps, people's mummys might well read this stuff.

 

Moderators? Your verdict please.

Sidibe Bone Owen Drury Mckimm Walshe Perkins Protheroe somethings got to give in the summer.

For me midfield, apart from the beginning of the season hasn't been a problem. The defence has and still us so why no defensive signings?
