Said it before and I’ll say it again. There are about four clubs in the world who can afford to refuse to sell their best players when a decent offer comes in - we’re not one of them.
Liverpool sold Mane (hence why they are now crap)
Bayern sold Lewendowski

The idea that we can hold on to players is laughable

No problem with selling players, I agree with the above.

It is ensuring they are replaced that's the point. Last year we sold Carver and tried to busk our way to the end of the season, the inevitable happened.

When EFL teams poach our players we should be poaching from Marine, Prescot, Bamber Bridge to keep the conveyor belt going.

Providing we bring in a couple of promising talents in January then no bother.

I agree with potk,but my point has always been when we sell players, nobody knows how much we got,and where the money goes ect,it's all smoke& daggers.. .ii have my theory, but enough said,kinda miss the old days when you could tell if we had a successful season cos Charlie bought a new car!!!!

Are you suggesting that we stop player’s progressing to a higher level? Would you rather the club kept players until their contracts expire and let them walk for nothing? We are, and always have been a football club that survives by bringing in young lads to learn their trade, hopefully improve, and allow us to sell them on for a profit.

I remember a supporter on one of my forays to the North East to watch a Northern League match saying "Get the ball down man!" Wise words and maybe one day we will keep the ball on the floor but for now it is what it is and a draw was a fair result!

Frustrating game looked like we would blow them away at first then same old playing catch up which we did at the very end . Jack Doyle must be knackered tonight ,long throws, corners , he seemed to do them all. Good to have Connor back. Good work ethic from all the lads as usual but we didnt vary the way we played and were very predictable, we had the last laugh as their manager was demanding the final whistle about a minute before we equalised and there was a good attendance despite the early kick off.Happy day.

Further to this, I understand the proposed move is not to the Football League but will be a life changing opportunity.

Interesting and listening to Liam’s interview, he appears to say change of ‘Country’ before saying step up [4:14] on his YouTube interview.

If it's "life changing", one would assume it isn't to Wales either. Perhaps a move into the Scottish leagues or further afield? Sweden? Cyprus? Both seem to have an interest in English non-league. It also would be extremely unlikely to be to an NL club, as an opportunity to go to any one of those wouldn't be considered life changing either.

So we can fill the void?

The fact that we don't stop players from progressing, and actually allow them to grow and get back into the football league is probably one of the main reasons why players are happy to come to us.

And possibly helping to keep us afloat.

It's a great move for the player concerned.

We can't stop players moving upwards but my only worry is are we going to struggle through rest of season with a smaller squad.

I don’t think that there is a transfer window in NLN?

I’ve a sneaking feeling it might be Niall Watson who’s the player we're talking about

Liam is understandably very carefully micro managing his career and progress. He (Niall) is a vastly improved player this season and perhaps ready for the next step.

Still affects all the leagues, players move up so some come down either released or loaned as they've been replaced.

There isn't a transfer window for clubs step 5 and below per se, but teams where a transfer window still applies (i.e League 2 and above) are still subject to those restrictions if they were to buy a player from non-league. The only instance where that isn't required is if a player is on non-contract or has been released by their non-league club, hence why we can't sell players to the League outside of their transfer windows. Loan restrictions of a similar nature also exist, unless a League club has been granted special permission for an emergency loan, such as if all 3 goalkeepers in a team are injured. It doesn't work the other way, meaning if we wanted to sign or loan anyone from the League and we'd be able to, subject to the agreeance of the player and club and a previously agreed notice period.

That could explain Niall and Liams absence on Wednesday and Wood returning .
Good luck to him I can see him doing well in the FL where they have more space and wingers!

Another two points gone if we had more punch upfront we would be near the top of the table. Just Hope Watson does start selling our best players again..
