If this signing pays off, it could be all the difference for us.

He certainly seems to have potential but he's had quite a few clubs and not played many games from any of them over the last five years.

PP is going to have to work his magic but I'm sure he will!

Welcome to Alty, Fisayo. Here's to this being the start of your rise to the top (the first part of it with us!) 😉

So much negativity.  He was excellent against us in pre-season like Parky said and there is a reason he was signed by Man City, Birmingham and Crystal Palace.  Take that to mean that there is a lot of potential there and stop obsessing over stats that don't mean that much when he hasn't been able to play that regularly for varying reasons.  Trust Parky and trust the lad, let him show you what he can do in an Alty shirt before you start judging his ability.  Plus, the way some on here have talked about Tom Peers recently, you'd think they would see any player with the club CV of Fisayo as a major improvement.

Welcome Fisayo and good luck, show everyone what you're capable of!

The money from JJ got us Dan Mooney, Craig Mahon and Elliot Durrell for 6 months, with probably some change.

Forgive me and others for being very underwhelmed.

I expect a little more for Jordan Hulme than someone, who hasn't started for mid-table-Curzon-Aston.

We've got Tom "needs to prove himself" Peers and now this lad. We can't afford, sadly, to be an rehabilitation centre for players this season; we're in a pandemic that could go to PPG in a defining season for the club.

Post by: AltyFan101 on October 15, 2020, 05:22:29 PM
Can someone on here genuinely tell me what they've got against Tom Peers, he may not be as good as a Jordan Hulme but from what I have seen of him he is a good player, a good goalscorer and an all-round nice guy.  He has scored numerous important goals for the club (at a decent rate considering he has never really had a good run of games starting) and you can tell he loves playing for us so give the poor comments a rest and let him have a chance.  He's constantly scapegoated when we lose even if he performed alright.  For example, at Notts County last week I saw loads of comments saying "that shows we need a new striker" - I know he should have scored but hold on, that game was lost by some inconsistent and poor defending at times, particularly by Densmore and White but I don't see the finger pointed at them?  Why is that?
Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: Saughall Robin on October 15, 2020, 05:52:05 PM
I agree. Peers is Alty through and through and deserves more respect and acknowledgement for his contribution.
I can only speak personally, but my view is that Tom is a valuable member of the group. He is being asked to play in an area which is not necessarily his best.
He's needed at the Club but, with the greatest respect, he's not the big bustling target man who can hold up the ball and score 20 a season for us.
It very much remains to be seen whether the new lad can fill that role but Tom is struggling to do so despite giving his best for the cause.
I hope he knows that we all respect his contributions (out of his best position in my opinion) and back him to the hilt in future.
Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: HashtagAlty on October 15, 2020, 06:29:05 PM
I'll bite.

Why Thomas Peers should not be startinf for Altrincham in the Conference. A short story.

In the 2.5 seasons (out of 3) that we had Hulme, he could barely force a start with Hulme's sending off, sulking and goal droughts. Infact, there's only 3 league games where Tom Peers warranted a start over Jordan Hulme over the course of 3 season, in the position he starts for us at the minute (if he's not a striker a Saughall robin says, what the hell is he doing playing there).

He managed 6 goals at Evo Stik level, richman and jones grabbed 3 each to set that standard.
In the first half of Conference North he scored a single goal, the same as richman at time of leaving.
Last season, he scored 4 goals plus one at York in the playoffs.

His record at Chester in national league was a single goal out of seven appearance (albeit against Macc  ;D).

Jordan Hulme's goal scoring wasn't miraculous, but he was someone who got more out of others bringing them into the game.

We need a goal scorer, with a record of either Playoff North or Conference level, using the money we got from selling Hulme.

I don't care if Tom peers is a nice lad, or if he is just happy to be here. I want a professional striker, who is going to keep us (at a minimum) out of the bottom four.

I'm sure the majority on the forum are alty through and through, but I don't want half of you leading the line.
Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: HashtagAlty on October 15, 2020, 06:32:30 PM
Densmore looked tired and I don't see him playing (covid aside) much past Joel Senior.

Hannigan wasn't great against county and was rightly rested/dropped/rotated. We have options on the wing, full back, cb and gk. we don't have this up front. Tom Peers should have been our 3rd choice striker scrapping to get ahead of Hulme and an. other. Using cup footbal/trophy football/loan football/injuries/suspensions to stake his claim.

Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: Freddie on October 15, 2020, 06:38:25 PM
For me, you can't compare Hulme and Peers as they are just so different.

Rhetorically speaking though, where would we be without Tommy Peers? His contributions as a squad member, and of course as part of our FA Cup and playoff runs, were absolutely outstanding.

We're not playing regional football.

We said goodbye to a lot of players on this journey but if we keep on this momentum, we have to let people jump off and find new players.

That's how Salford Harrogate etc. Don't yo yo.

I get that everyone has their own opinion on Tom's ability and impact but it winds me up so much when I see him getting unfairly discarded by his own fans, the same fans that will have cheered his goals and sung his name numerous times over the last few years.  I even get the impression that some on here think he should have been released over the summer which would've been ridiculous considering some of the important goals he has scored along the journey and the impact he seems to have on the other lads in the team.  I've also seen people replying to the club twitter saying things like "we desperately need a new striker" and don't get me wrong, we might, but I'm sure he probably reads those comments and I can't imagine it is that great for his confidence, even if it makes him more determined to perform.  There were even similar comments on here after the Eastleigh game when he was arguably one of our best players with some good hold up play and tidy passing.

Open to someone telling me I'm wrong but I like Tom and I feel like he often gets unfairly treated by some fans.
Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: One Foot in the Grave on October 15, 2020, 08:00:35 PM
Tom Peers is an honest trier, who always looked better to me when he was selected WITH Jordan Hulme rather than instead of him (Southport in the Cup last year they were brilliant). He needs someone alongside him up top to flourish, but we don't play that shape. It's not his fault that he's labouring to fill a role that doesn't suit him.

Now, getting this thread back to where it should be....

If this new guy is the man that fills the huge gap that Jordan Hulme has left I will welcome him with open arms. However, 3 goals in 5 years in competitive first team football doesn't give me reason to expect that to be the case.

You need to know that many would have been fine with Tom Peers leaving us on a high at the promotion. That's football. Mahon and Max were two examples. You can't be sentimental about things, that what got us relegated.

It's not harsh to want Tom to be 2nd or 3rd choice / impact player.

Would you have started the season, by choice, with Tom Peers (or Clayton), if Jordan has left on the 2nd August?

If Tom wasn't challenging Jordan for his place, how can he expect to be the first choice now that Jordan is left? Of course we need to reinforce the squad with someone who is proven to be as good as Jordan
Title: Re: Fisayo Adarabioyo
Post by: Hugh on October 16, 2020, 02:06:31 AM
Someone who is proven to be as good as Hulme would presumably cost what we got for Hulme. If we could afford to spend that sort of money, we wouldn't have been happy to accept whatever Fylde paid for him, would we? We acquire  quality players by other means - loan players, players getting their career back on track etc. which to be fair PP has a good record with. Everyone deserves a chance. Give Fisayo his, that's all I'm asking.

On another point, here's what got Alty relegated, as I see it:

2016/17 - caving in to short termists who wanted a new manager when a new appointment failed to stop the rot in his first month or two.
2015/16 - never recovering from that late defeat at Colchester (I'm still convinced if Clee had scored at the end to get us to the third round, we'd have stayed up), plus the considerable disruption from the Leamington farce (I remember the squad sat at their "post match" meal and sensing the atmosphere was rather flat - I think).
2010/11 - losing pretty much half of our first team preseason. Ken had a good go at turning it around but it wasn't quite enough in the end (Ooh Ken McKenna)
The three "relegations" - Jamie Robinson farce and disrupted preseasons following as a result. (Halifax"2.5%" Town "cheating" didn't help).
2000 - injuries to key players Brendan Burke and Stuart Coburn, as I recall.
1997 - a horrendous injury crisis. I think we were comfortably midtable to Christmas and beyond, but were forced to play some "Strange" teams later in the season.

And that's all the relegations we ever had. All fitting comfortably into the thirty years (last Tuesday 13th - Bangor was my first game) that I've been following Alty.

Sure there'll be plenty of points I missed out, but that's how I remember it!

PS on a completely different subject, when's the Highland League starting? JD? Rageagainstthefirstteam? Anyone? Weird seeing the table from March on "Teletext" - that must be a record!

I have been really impressed with how Cove Rangers have done (and they've been building to this for a long time - their excellent club motto is "cease to be better, cease to be good).

Just on the off chance, what do we have to do to qualify for the Scottish league Challenge Cup thing? I seem to remember Boreham Wood were in it recently and I'd love to see Alty against one of these teams, or perhaps a trip to Ireland! I understand Northwich played Parma in the Anglo-Italian cup some years ago, but I'd settle for this de facto "home nations" competition. I dare say Greenock Morton would enjoy visiting us again aswell!

As for 2016/17, none of them were given enough time, obviously, same as United since (our man) Fergy retired. I they've any sense, they'll give Ole a chance, same as Derby should have done with Nigel.
Fortunately I didn't see many games that season, and I might say I was disgusted to read of the personal ad hominem attacks on Young I read about in the NLP. Still, I guess there'll always be the "bloody rubbish Alty" types. Not many times these past thirty years when there wasn't someone moaning about something, I should think. I'm just grsteful we don't have any real problems like Northwich and Macc. Enjoy!!!

Up until about 18 months ago I had a mate lived and worked up in the north, and used to take in quite a few games in the Highland League.

I think the English qualifiers are the two highest clubs in the National League who don't actually get promoted, so it might be a tough task for this season. For an oddity, I am sure I remember Wrexham representing England while TNS were representing Wales one year.

Nationalities can be fluid, as I  know as I am eligible to play for both countries, but I would really enjoy that competition as well, Hugh, and Greenock Morton would be very welcome hosts or visitors.

Justin Bowler made 1 (+8) appearances and scored 0 goals. Gillespie played 22 league games and scored once. Rankine, on the other hand, scored 15 goals in all competitions in his one season with us. I don't think he's nearly in the same category. And if Adarabioyo matches his record I think everyone would be impressed.
