We have made him take an extension of just the 1 year when his agent clearly was doing the big up tactic. To be fair to him his career is pretty awful other than last season and he needs to play. He could not feature next season be turfed out and left with no career
Yup thats why i think robins is smart to not hand out super long contrscts as of er wchieve goals some players will be left behind. Thays life.

Shipley 2 year contract similar imo. He can do a job right now. Can he if in 2 years we really want prem? Maybe, msybe not but he has 2 years to improve further and show us for sure. Perfect management from the club imo

Bristol Rovers recruitment meetings must be fun...

Widdrington: "Gaffer, I've identified this player I think would be ideal"

Manager: "Did he play for Coventry by any chance?"

Would be a good signing for them. Thought he might be fancied by someone slightly higher up the league one food chain mind you.

Love that there's some morons on the Facebook forum making out they steal our players rather than us allowing them to take what we no longer want.

He would be a good signing for them, thats absolutely true. But they definitely aren't nicking him against our will.

Hopefully we get a bit of cash.

Can see why he’s probably pissed off we’ve took the option to get a fee he will probably get less wages based on that

Needs a better agent then, from leeds to those inbred weirdos
It’s his agents job to link him with high profile clubs. Look at Bayliss and McCallum linked to all the big Prem clubs and end up at a much smaller club, the small club fans thinks they’ve got a great coup ahead of all these big clubs but the big club was never interested.

It didn’t take much working out that a player who wasn’t getting into our side wasn’t going to end up at a future Premier League side

If its true he has been offered a new deal but won't sign. Its time for him to go. We dont want people upsetting the dressing room as they are not getting game time

Will never understand why people who are fans of the club tweet stuff to try and whip people up and destabilise the dressing room. Its one thing to post rumours about transfers or the ground situation, and we all know who on here genuinely has contacts who give them info, but what benefit is there to drop massive hints that players aren't happy?

How else are you going to show off to everyone about your insider knowledge?

Exactly why they do it. I get bits occasionally which I might share with a couple of select others who I know won't broadcast, so find it annoying when others do. Part of the reason I don't spread it everywhere is do that I continue to get told other bits which they wouldn't if it kept getting out.
