Ok, but you seem to be overlooking the fact that we are a team that just finished bottom of League Two. If we stay in League Two, we are hardly an enticing prospect.

If we stay up, we have signed a few solid lower league players (because lets be honest, the gap between the Conference and League Two, with a few exceptions, is marginal) who should offer good value in League Two. If we go down, then we have signed solid players who have a proven record in the Conference, even if it isn't a remarkable record.

Do you really think that we are supposed to be signing players who are tearing non-league apart? Most teams are well aware of the talent available in the Conference now, so are much more willing to a) go hunting for talent in Non-League and b) shell out decent money for them. We don't have a lot of money to shell out, plus, as I said earlier, we're hardly the most enticing prospect.

We signed Cowley last year, who had an excellent goalscoring record, albeit in a much lower division, and we ended up releasing him on a free. I'd take a solid, if unremarkable, signing from the Conference than another gamble on a potential lower league gem who could be a bust. I'm not saying steer clear of the gambles entirely, but lets get the solid signings in first.

We are in the position where we need to be signing low-ceiling, high-floor players. Not low-floor, high-ceiling players.
