In Evatt we trust and all that but I dread to think the stick certain previous managers would have got for making a signing with a similar goal scoring record
We had a Millionaire in charge do could supposedly pay money in the early days
We have to trust the Manager but it also shows he wants to build players who are signed to the club and not loaned,possibly a asset to sell.
Hopefully someone who wants to make it and use Barrow as a stepping stone to better things.
Football is all about individual views,look how we never signed Peter Withe as he was not good enoggy

Sorry to rain on your parade Pedro but if my ageing memory serves me Withe was offered a contract but had already decided to go to South Africa where he was spotted and returned to play for Wolves et al and England.On the subject of Morgan, Ian Evatt has said that we don't just shoot arrows and sign where they land. A lot of work goes into watching players contacting previous managers etc before signings are made. This time last year few had heard of Granite,Kay, Taylor or Hindle. Enough said.

Telling comment at the end of this article:

“It’s now my job to add more players like Morgan to add to what we already have to make us better for next season and we’re well down the line of doing that.

Code for - "Our mission is to define a specific need, identify someone with the potential to meet that need, acquire them and build them into the role and exploit them to the club's advantage. Don't expect to swoon when you see the names of our forthcoming recruits. But rest assured we will have studied them, assessed them and thought long and hard before acquiring them."

But alas he did. The shame of impending relegation with the mighty Bluebirds sent him into the clutches of the now defunct Port Elizabeth City (via a stint in the French Foreign Legion). He may have gone on to win International honours and score the winning goal for Villa in the European Cup final - but he was never the same man emotionally ever again.

Like Emlyn Hughes - Peter Withe was never good enough for Barrow! :)

Get another non known striker in we'll be in top 4 next year no worries 😪😪
So long as he has the ability to score or create goals at our level, he won't be unknown for much longer

his previous loans were about 2 years ago when he was 18 - he's scored regularly for the teams at Peterborough since then. He'll score far more than Blyth did
Bring it on!!!

That will not be difficult Blyth was an absolute flop as a National League striker over the full season. :!:
