Four players we were gutted to miss out on, but wouldn’t thank you for now

Here’s a blast from the past, right? How many times were we fooled into hoping this little terror signed for us?

There was the time he was thought to be leaving Dover and Forest Green started throwing their weight around. That got Chris Kinnear all wound up too, but Miller stayed put and helped Dover to the play-offs… oh no, wait. He didn’t. Shame.

Then the fans wanted him when he left for Posh, but again we were only little old Lincoln then, weren’t we? His Posh career went south and there was a call for us to get him on loan. Naughty Mansfield beat us too it, but they’re good at beating us to things you can pay for (not so much things you have to earn). 

Even after his Stags stint failed, there were still faint calls for us to grab him from Posh in the summer. I guess times move on though and right now, Mr Miller is just a figure who might have been. He wouldn’t get on our bench now.

  1. Question: What is the difference between these 5 guys, which you fancied, and the players we bought at the time?
    Answer: None of them have had Danny as manager
    QED!
