    Shame for the lad. He must have something about him to have been close for so long.

    Be interesting to see where he turns up next.

    His Instagram account has a big farewell post, the best part is how one of the photos is him going in for a proper nasty ankle breaker against Arsenal

    Can't see it but if that's the case give him a 10 year contract.

    Wonder if he will drop down to try and restart his career? Conference or something

    Seemed to be an entitlement complex there with him (and certain family members) post debut/Stoke interest.

    A cautionary tale for aspiring youngsters.

    My friend is chairman of a team in the Evo-stick Premier, and who feed players in and out of Crewe.on a regular basis (Westwood. who later played for Villa appeared for them). He says that the problem they have at their level is with pushy parents of players who have not quite made it, but are 19-21 years old, so on the cusp of failing at the thing their child has set their heart on for 10 years or more. They still hope that they can get into League 1 or 2, and then their child will be noticed.

    Mocking a kid being released. High class that is. The shame comment you’re replying to, I think, is based on how a potentially decent player has let his attitude get the better of him. I’m pretty sure it’s nothing to revel in.

    No, he didn’t. That’s his problem, not yours. No need to apparently take pleasure from it.

    Pity he didn't make it here when he broke into the team under robin's I thought that was our left back spot sorted for the next decade or so

    Correct Oucho.

    As a player I look at Camwell and I am reminded of Ryan Haynes, technically very good going forward, but susceptible when defending, McCallum and Mason are much better overall than Camwell.

    I’ve seen that the players family has been vocal in the past on social media stating how Camwell should be playing more and maybe the lad has lost his way? He’s had injuries too so perhaps it’s a combination of things.

    Good luck to him elsewhere if Camwell can improve defensively he will be a decent LB.

    I’m friends with Chris and his family and your comment could not be further from the truth. He just wants to play regular football and if he’s not getting it with us then it’s only natural he will look to play elsewhere. If that means dropping down a couple of levels then so be it.
    Some of the comments on here are just plain ridiculous

    Gotta feel for the lad to be fair. Robins raved about his debut in League One and didn't follow up on it. He raved about his performance against Arsenal and didn't follow up on it. Don't think he's spoke about any youth player as highly as he did of Camwell. He also spoke to the Telegraph about Camwell being contracted up to 2021 when it came out he was on trial at MK Dons which proves how little he knows about his own players.

    Seemed a little strange Robins demanded a fee from MK and insisted they wouldn't let him go for nothing only to let him go for nothing.

    Also when Robins persuaded Chris to sign a new contract because he said Haynes was off only for Haynes to also sign a new contract took the piss a bit. Made the lad empty promises then left him out of the initial pre-season squad to Spain.

    Didn't his dad leak the squad list for the tour, including the name George Thomas which got everyone excited, only for him to not go. I'm sure he got a bollocking for that

    Maybe Haynes was off and then things changed? Every time I read something about this lad on here it kind of feels him and his supporters feel like he was "owed soemthing". Apologies if I'm misreading it but that's just the way it comes across. Blaming others for him not being able to break into the first team seems a bit short sighted to me. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.

    He didn't rave about the Arsenal performance, he said he had good technique and was good in possession, but needed to work on a lot of things. He also has Sam McCallum coming through who is a much bigger talent.

    Also read the article properly: Transfer news: Move breaks down for Coventry City defender

    The telegraph claimed he is contracted until 2021 not Robins.
