Out of interest how do you know Town offered Smith a deal. And if correct what were the conditions of the deal.?
Conditions could have been for 12 months and 2k a week.

Second hand info but came for the gaffer, supposedly.

Dunno exactly what Smith was offered: whether it had got that far. We were definitely interested and trying to get a deal done.
Johnson was all but done and was expected to be announced on the Wednesday with the kit launch.

Town have really gone down the pecking order if players are choosing Oldham, Sutton and Saddlers over us.  Bad Mood

To an extent, yes

…but it’s all relative. 95% of the time the players will sign for whoever offers them the most money.
So just because a club offers more than us doesn’t by default mean we can’t compete.

If Walsall rate player x higher than us they might offer him a better deal and he’ll sign with them. Certain clubs may have more cap space in their budget because they have less players so can offer better wages.
Some clubs might have different philosophy on signings. Some clubs might go for less players on better wages and others might go for the squad game and sign more players on lower wages & then hope when injuries, suspensions, fixture congestion, loss of form kick in they are better off for having a bigger squad.

Unless two clubs are offering a player exactly the same deal - it’s not always a case of us being over looked or other clubs ‘out spending us’

Non league is a professional league these days (it’s probably due a rebranding & probably should come under the EFL as League Three) only need to look at the teams coming up the last few seasons.

Alternatively being one of Oldham’s best player & top earner could very well be more lucrative than being a squad player on an average wage at Swindon. Depends how each club rates the player comparably to the rest of the squad / division

No idea on Oldhams finances.

Aden Flint’s available.

Flint will be signing for Sheff Wed and if not them, a mid to low Champ level side. That's the attraction his agent has been pushing for him. Be very surprised if he signed for a League One side - Derby at a stretch but Sheff Wed are the club he wants to sign with after helping them get promoted.

And the main reason Raglan was leaving Cheltenham was to move closer to his Cheshire home. Joining us would have moved him even further away.

This has popped up round here, TBH nothing really to do with us and just shows that it happens to all clubs, but the absence of anyone (on the story or wider SM) trying to lay the blame on the club is quite jarring.

Similar thing happened with Jonny Williams and Bradford/Gillingham.

And if Div is to be believed Danny Johnson - although I am not sure Johnson and Austin would be a good partnership - Austin and Harry Smith, perhaps.

Tom King (ex-Newport keeper) was mentioned earlier in this thread I believe - he's gone to Wolves to be third/fourth choice experienced keeper.

So these journeymen lower league keepers are going to be paid a king's ransom to be sitting on the bench for Premier league clubs. Clearly you cannot blame them given the money they are likely to be getting, but it's a bit of a swizz really for Premier league clubs to get around the 'home grown' rules by hoovering up goalkeepers that they are never going to be playing.

You could look at it 2 ways in that the standard of lower league keepers is likely to get worse, or that more opportunities will be available for goalkeepers that otherwise wouldn't have made it.
