    I wonder if Charlie Wood has had other offers to chew over. I fully expected him to be one of the first out of contract players to have been happy to sign back on.

    Personally know very little about him. I presume he is one of our better youngsters?

    Yep, I know and agree with that. Just saying, that I'm glad (and hope) we stick to our guns, and not come back with any counter offers.

    It's not looking so great for him now, really is it?

    If he goes, that will be fine, we've all kind of accepted it.

    If he stays, he is probably doing so because there was a lack of agreement on compensation and not because he wasn't wanted elsewhere or indeed because he really wanted to stay!

    He needs to be a bit careful here. He could end up losing a bit of development time if he ends up staying and not playing/starting every match.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s already signed but they announce him with the youngsters who have just been given deals, Sparks said half a dozen. Wouldn’t surprise me if we were making an under 23 team tbh as it seems strange to delay these announcements when in the past they’ve been done straight away unless there’s something to go with them such as a development team.

    Unfortunatly the players were inside today possibly finding out what condition there in before the players get into training tomorrow, so I can't confirm if Watt is still with us or not.

    Don't believe a word of what Fordy says, I've always asked if it's O/K to take a few pictures and I've never been refused by any of the past managers.

    The day I start believing him over anybody else is the day I pack it all in.
    I think you know it was only posted in jest.

    Who said withdraw the offer. City don’t have to do anything apparently, just like Hartlepool.

    If Watt stays he starts every game. Alongside Smallwood. Its that simple.

    I’d hate to be MH to pick the 11 with the squad we have even now.

    1 Lewis
    2-5 Ridehalgh, Platt, Critchlow, Osadebe (?)
    6-7 Watt, Smallwood
    8-10 Walker, Harratt, Chapman
    11 Angol

    All of course subject to change / fitness/ new signings.

    Hes a good player but even if he uturns now its a hard one to swallow. He would only becoming back because nothing else out there for him.

    No issue with players chasing the best deal and seeing what's available - all part and parcel but this has gone on too long now so it looks like he has no intention of signing for us unless its a last resort.

    If he does end up renewing it will all be forgotten by most as soon as he plays a few games and does well like it was when Meredith originally turned down a deal.

    Yeah, exactly, I think we now know that Watt will leave whenever he gets a better opportunity, but we're in L2, what do we expect?

    Fair play, I say, I hold nothing against Meredith when he held out, and I hold nothing against him for leaving for Millwall to play in the Championship - if we'd have won at Wembley, he'd have stayed.

    No point crying over it.

    Not at the moment, the reason being , he’s not a specialist centre back and passing is not his finest attribute, however to shore up the middle if we have our backs to the wall in the last 10 mins , I’d bring him on.

    I have indeed said several times over the last week , I can’t see where he fits in our first 11.
    However as said a good lad to have on the bench.

    Funny enough I agree. He's poor on the ball at the back.

    Square pegs! Odasebe isnt a right back and Harratt isnt a number 10.
