Andre Green was going to sign for SWFC then Monk got sacked, then Pulis got sacked...


Recommended Posts


I've listened to this interview a few times but can't figure out what's gone on


The club wanted him 9 months ago or so

Garry Monk spoke to him a couple of times
Then Garry Monk got sacked
Then Green and his agent didn't know what was going on
Then Pulis came in
Then Pulis got sacked
Then Greens agent and Wednesday chat

Then Green signs for Wednesday saying how Wednesday had fought for him and how he feels wanted



Can't figure this one out at all

Just about to post the same. The dots don’t join up atall. There’s a some huge gaps missed out, July until the window shut, and from then to Monk getting the sack. Must be 3 months at least where nothing seemingly happened. Odd.

Is there some kind of rule where we could have signed him from August onwards, but he wouldn't have been registered to play? Like a limit of 25 players.

 

There was something like this mentioned when Westwood was brought back, that we had 24 and had to check if we could register him as the 25th? (So maybe they were saving the last slot for Westwood, knowing that Monk might soon get the boot)

The one encouraging thing about that interview is he confirms it was David Downes who contacted him in the first place.

Key to that is Dave Downes our recruitment guy. 

 

Clearly did not come through an advisor and they were obviously briefing against him.

A chance at first team football in the Championship. Perhaps he had others offers from clubs lower down the leagues? Was holding out for a move to us. I don’t know.

 

Interview doesn’t make much sense but lad was put on the spot a bit. 
 

I think he’s a decent signing on paper. Let’s see what he can do.

Put on the spot???

 

He was asked what happened when he signed for us. not interrogated over whether he was one of the Qanon folk that stormed the US Capitol last week

 

lol

Well run club innit. 


To be fair you can’t really knock the club here. We clearly have a recruitment team which is looking for players with or without a manager. Green was clearly highlighted in the summer and for one reason or another it didn’t get done. Had a chance to sign him now, so we have done. Good age, hopefully fairly cheap, no fee involved - I’d like to think it’s fairly low risk. 
 

Encouraging Downes was involved. He’s working for the club and the club only to try and find players. So that is a huge positive for me.

Hard what to make of this.

 

Sounds a bit like Wednesday came in for him but he was hoping for a better offer, a better off never came in so in the end thought sod it I may as well sign for them then.

Well he was hardly going to say either:

 

‘Wednesday could only find the money to offer me the contract until last week’,

 

I had no offers from other clubs’

 

or

 

‘Wednesday offered me more money than the other clubs and I just fancied chilling for a bit before playing again’
 

Not saying it’s any of the above reasons but to me it’s more likely than what I’ve just listened to which made little sense. 

 

lol
