Same with Lamieres and Ladapo
All signed by Adams...
Yes ..... bizarre & ironic isn't it .... DA was such an instinctively cautious manager yet signed such players. Lameiras in particular he never trusted. Even during that purple patch when we were blowing teams away he was nearly always subbed after about 70mins - then we'd try to hang on to a lead. Him and GC10 together during that time were simply a joy to watch. Carey was amazing - no idea why he didn't play at a much higher level. We were very, very lucky to have such a player and for so long too.
It was stupid of RL to compare Mayor to him. I'm a big fan of his but he's nowhere near Carey's level.
But he didn't play at a higher level
He built Mayor up because, for some reason droves of Argyle fans were crying into their cereal that Carey who had been distinctly mediocre in his final season and got relegated to the bottom division with the club had gone off to play in front of crowds that the reserves would snigger at and there were season tickets to sell. Course he was going to say something like that
Anyway Carey was crap compared to Akos
