Dembele to Peterborough   (reply) Posted by: Kris2
Date Posted: 7 minutes ago
Quoted from rancido

[/b]

I assume it was MJ that triggered the year extension to his contract. If that is the case then he must have thought he could achieve something with Dembele. All water under the bridge now so good luck to the lad and we got a nice tidy sum plus a sell on clause.


Or he knew he wanted out and it was triggered so we could get a fee and not let him go for nothing.

Coming up to retirement age now and hung his gloves up in 1998...not sure he would be suitable for the task....but i believe he still lives locally so fits the MJ brief.

Are you being serious?

Let's just take the money and move on.
MJ is building a group who want to play for us. We don't want anybody who is not committed to the team.
There is no I in team.

I'm sorry to see him go. He was by no means the finished article and had a lot to learn, but he was exciting to watch. I can't see him being at Peterboro for more than a year or so, and let's hope that we have a sell-on clause. Good luck to him, I wish him well.

I wonder whether he might spend some of the budget on Jason gilchrist who he had at burnley and who has been scoring goals for fun with fcum and southport.plus either Simeon Jackson or a forward of similar experience and ability

From his interview in February, he clearly had his sights set on bigger things. The only reason the extension was triggered was to ensure we got a fee.

Don't you think it's better to wait and see regarding these new signings, heaping praise on them before kicking a ball is plain daft.


I fully agree, that's why I rarely come on and post comments such has he's a great signing or he is a fantastic manager.

Let's wait and see how we do.

Rather than taking as gospel, something that 'Keith' says, how about a quote from his former manager:-

Luton manager Nathan Jones said: “People have to realise is Jordan came here as a striker or a number ten, and to be fair, because of how good a footballer he is and how good an athlete he is, we played him pretty much through the diamond.

“How he was in training, I can assure you there’s not a better footballer at our club and he added to everything, as the way we train, the way we develop, we need a good environment, Jordan added to that.

“Yes, he could have shown more in terms of when he did get his chance in the position, but to be fair to him, we had ones who we pre

Not for one moment getting carried away here, but remember how Buckley used to sign players that no one had heard of, cast offs from other clubs, because he knew they could play a certain role in a certain way, and could form part of a cohesive unit?

That.

At his age, I reckon Collins will need to keep playing to get his fitness to the required level, so I'd expect him to be a regular starter. Not sure I'd have kept him for another season but let's hope his experience is enough to keep him at the required level of performance.

If it ends up that he's kept out by other players, a decent option on the bench in case of injury/suspensions.

I think he could do well at Peterborough next season..

Would liked to have seen what Jolley could have got out of him..

Seems to me that the manager is looking for certain players to slot into his mindset of a young strong minded team rather than going for the obvious.
Time will be the judge, to me it's a refreshing approach

Quoted from KingstonMariner
He's the only Town player who made me stand up, even when I was already stood at Accy last season.

Good luck to the lad. Can't stand all this Jilted John 'good riddance' stuff. Don't let your jealousy make you nasty boys.


Agree with this. In natural ability he was probably the best at the club by a street but he didn’t understand the demands of the game. So, early on he was playing for fun then it got serious during the bad run, his fitness was dodgy for a while too and he struggled. He obviously did not want another dose of that and wanted to play with better players. Another season here though and perhaps we could have had a real gem and been talking of a 7 figure sale in June 2019.

Hold your horses on this one, there has to be a reason the club removed the post off the OS in such a fast and efficient manner.
I'm starting to think someone jumped the gun with a pre written statement about Collins signing a new contract and what worries me is there another pre written statement about him leaving and they're waiting to see which statement should be realised to the supporters...


Released even

Ive always liked him though as a person.Warm and funny. Xavi who played with him at Barcelona said similar

What I like most about this signing and all other signings so far is we are getting business done early ready for pre season. I don’t know much about any of the signings made but I never do, I will reserve my judgement until they’ve played a number of games in a Town shirt. I just feel the last few seasons we’ve been scratching around right at the end of the summer trying to fill the gaps within the squad. So looking forward to the season kicking off!

Best team of the Fishy era: No. 11   (reply) Posted by: Gainsbro_Mariner

Groves ???

Could we replace R.Smith with Lever when it’s done ? Can’t remember having the option to vote for him.

Can’t even give you one of those, Stace maybe ? But you wouldn’t have him over Grovesy

Quoted from GrimRob
From the Fishy news site

https://thefishy.co.uk/story.php?id=8503373:

Luton fan "Keith", was less than enthusiastic about his team's former player. He told the Fishy: "Cook was a complete waste of space for us. Why on earth have you signed him? He isn't a striker. He's a midfielder who goes missing. Our manager Jones said he was the most skilful player on the training pitch but we never, never saw that in a match. Jones gave him every chance and he failed every time. It hasn't hit our message board (http://members.boardhost.com/lutonoutlaws) yet, but watch for their comments.

"Best of luck for next season. You look as though you are amassing a good squad bar Cook. Manager looks

Quoted from topuphere666
Yea, if Macca only signed because of AW our issues are far greater than we ever thought. I would imagine JM has signed because he believe in what’s happening around the club currently and wants to be part of it after a very up and down 6 years with us.


I’m sure AW was only a tiny part of why Macca signed a new deal. A higher wage (I assume), a 3 year deal, and keeping his family settled in the area would have been far higher on his reasons to stay when you listen to his interviews.

As others have said, Warrington seems a good bloke, but how much has Macca improved in the last few years? Probably a bit but he has always been a superb shot stopper, his weakness has always been commanding his box,...
