Sounds like a kids TV show aimed at 6-10 year olds with an unbearably simple, catchy theme tune.

Andy Williams was 100 per cent a target, albeit an ambitious one (nothing wrong with that).

I would hope any ten year olds in my family have moved on to more intellectual and educational fodder.

Had an offer been made? Just informal talks? Or were we just one of many clubs who’d express an interest if asked?

Be plenty of players we consider and might want who we never decide to make an offer to.

Stop trolling RCS seriously, both myself and Jon have told you he was a target.

I'm with RCS on this. Peterborough targeted Mo Eisa, but they were never in with a shout. Similarly, we targeted Mullins and got him, because he was a realistic target. We don't know how far any negotiations with Williams got, if there were any at all.

Shade the answers are out there to those questions, both Jon and I confirmed there was a very serious interest.

Same as Peterborough’s very serious interest in Mo?

To be honest I don't know as much about that but Jon confirmed they made a verbal offer.

The subtlety of the point is that a derisory verbal offer with no intention of meeting the asking prices is more of a ‘nice to have’, than ‘serious target’.

If we did get as far as negotiating things like contract length with Williams, it could easily be a case of Gary not thinking Williams was worth it and that we are better off saving the money for a more important target as much as it is us having “missed out”.
