Just because he’s been seen on a golf course doesn’t mean he isn’t injured, he was playing like. Ma y with knocks when CC was in charge, I don’t get all this stuff when people have digs at footballers some activities don’t effect the injuries they have, he’s sat not being able to play the sport he loves, give the man a break do we want him to sit in his house and just watch tv all day every day for 14 months? 

 

I cant blame any player or manager now for not being loyal to a club because both clubs and fans hang them out to dry with stuff like this, that’s one of the reasons rightly or wrongly why hirst took jnr away. He knows now that there is fizz all loyalty just like when we fizzed him off when he got injured. 

People have a pop at players coming to the end of contracts quite a lot ( not just our fans , football fans IN general) about them not being bothered because they know they aren’t being kept on etc, well fizz yeah , why would they risk getting injured and not getting another job when they are getting kicked out???

what other person would not react the same?  Ey up kid I know we are flipping you off from our builders firm contract next week but do me a favour, can you climb up that ladder there with this bifold door that needs three men to do it pal because the lads we are keeping are doing other things at the moment.......

fizz off if you knew you were gone you wouldn’t risk fizz and I mean fizz all. 

Football fans and clubs want it all one sided, demand loyalty from players and managers then so quick to turn on them and say fizz them out when it suits. 

WTF has that got to do with your post!!

 

As for my handicap comment, it was tongue in cheek Think someone needs to lighten up.

I do find the Hooper situation strange. It's like he's disappeared off the face of the earth

If he's match  fit play him..His record is decent, but he's getting older, no doubt more injury prone and is a high wage earner.

In the position we are in it would be daft to offer him a new contract if he can't prove his worth before the end of the season.

How long to be match fit?..How long to the end of the season?

Its risky isn't it?

I'm not slagging him off, I'm just simply talking financial and footballing sense.

Ive ceased to spaff about seeing Abdi, Hooper or Lee in a bloody orange vest on a training ground.

If we let those go, it might free Bruce up to do a bit more of what has already been a vast improvement, theres little room for sentiment..The little I have would probably go to Lee because I don't think the club did him any favours whatsoever

Thx for your input lol

 

But he's not match fit though, is he?

 

How can he possibly be match fit when he's not played any matches in about 10 months.

 

Owlstalk at it's finest.

 

He'll take about 10 games to get up to speed, and by then we're pretty much at the end of season.

 

The best we can hope for re: Hooper is the odd cameo here and there from the bench and the avoidance of (another) injury.

 

He needs to be the first one on the departure list in the summer, IMO.

I think you'll find that was me point

You need to read the bit where i say "how long will that take..How long til the end of the season"

We're talking of launching someone in. My point is why launch an ageing injury prone player in! If you're going to launch anyone then it should be a young un to see what he's made off. Hopefully not biscuits like Hooper. 

Yes but it would be better if Borukov was ready and in some sort of form. This time last year would have been better for him.

I would hazard a guess that you will, just like the people who wrote of Westwood and Hutchinson did

Little bit different . Even if be some bizarre chance he did come back it would be stupid to offer her new terms , he’s been injury prone throughout his to,e here

I heard that rumour.

 

that s fine.

 

Would be brilliant if we could get 7 games out of him and still be in the hunt for the playoffs before he left tho.

I read that rumour - on Owlstalk.

I think that’s what we’ve got to look at 

 

Finishers like this aren’t always available - if we were to dump him, there’s no guarantee next person won’t do job? 

 

At least we know Hooper is an out and out scorer - if he can prove his worth next ten games, id offer him reduced terms - I’m sure Bruce is a fan of his overall play too

Fletcher has only played 20 games more - he was deemed a crock, and now looks to be in form of his life again at 31
