    Maybe he's cheaper than Taylor thus freeing up cash for a forward.

    OR we're being sensible and not locking ourselves into long-term contracts that we can't afford if the worst happens.

    Why would you give a 33 year old more than a one year deal? Jesus, Golfie, get a grip. You're just looking for stuff to gripe about. It's a perfectly sensible decision.
  • Options
    Or he can leave in May when we're promoted and he is surplus to requirements whilst we sign Nastasic, Smalling and Sakho ;-)

    then why let Taylor go who was just as good and a lot younger ?? I doubt v. much if Taylor was on a big wedge.

    it just seems to me that there is no plan - same with the strikers.

    Matt Wrights resignation frees up money for a one year deal,if a couple more resign we can have a forward

    Jesus. We sign a player and you still get negativity. Dervite signed a one-year deal last summer and has just renewed. I very much doubt we'll lose 25 players next summer. A bit over the top that.
  • Options
    Some wrote Dervite off last year based on what they saw in pre-season. He's probably not at the level Powell hoped he'd be signing but most of his signings have turned out well. I trust Powell and his staff to get the best out of him if he plays. For now he's probably 4th choice and it's up to him to prove he's better than our other CBs. Don't see anything wrong with this signing, nothing wrong with a few older signings on short term deals.

    Matt Taylor wanted to play First Team football and Powell could not guarantee him that. He wanted to keep him but that's life.

    according to the OS he signed on Monday ?

    As a matter of interest, Matt Taylor is 4 years OLDER than Wood.

    We're doomed! .(NOT!)...

    I say lets moan about not signing any players then..............................

    when we sign some lets moan about signing players.

    If we do this we can moan continually because that's what we like to do and what we're best at.

    Well some of the people on here anyway.

    Hey now, stop looking at facts and being logical, there's no call for that. Just accept WE'RE DOOMED TO DOOM DOOMILY and we'll all get along fine. Well apart from the rose tinted brigade...
