I ‘always thought there was a player in there somewhere’ with Fletcher, maybe he’ll still prove it elsewhere. I hope Coulson proves he’s worth a place in the squad, he can turn it round.

Britt and Fletcher have been on the cards for long enough, I like Coulson but it makes sense for him to get some real game time at another club.

We need a complete rebuild in attacking area's, let's start again, it can't be any worse.
As Erimus said we need fully committed players with the right mindset, we always end up with the exact opposite unfortunately.

Was that linked article written by a child?

Said on another thread I'd have been happy to see fletch stay as a back up striker but if he goes I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. Still the same really, looks like he's been pieing it off in training from Warnock's comments so no big loss next season - assuming we get some decent strikers in.
I don't even see him as a back up striker because if we're chasing the game, we look at the bench & sigh, well at least we have Fletcher to come on, it dosen't inspire you, no for me we're well shot of him

Neither is a loss although I would have let both stay for the right price as they can offer something.

Coulson is a strange one... seems to have bags of potential but never really got going outside of the odd good game.

I genuinely wish them both well and hope they succeed.

I'd like to see more clubs following Gillingham's lead - they refuse to pay agents. The chairman said that if the players want to use agents, it is their responsibility to pay them......
I read with interest the Times report about agents and their tax dodges in cahoots with clubs yesterday. Unbelievable how they scalp so much and then still take an extra handful.

Fletcher has been rubbish since he came back, doesn't look fit or just not committed, not sure but doesn't look right. He had looked an excellent prospect the last 18 months, so it'll be sad to see that player go.

So looks like we will be looking for at least 2 CFs, possibly 3

Not bothered about Coulson leaving though. He's supposed to be creative and has 1 assist and 1 goal, and is inept defensively.

Steve Gibson has in the past refused to pay most agents - one of the reasons for many transfers breaking down at the eleventh hour.
You have to be prepared to be frustrated with that approach as laudable as it is.

He surely wasnt rubbish when he scored 2 goals in 2 games.

Fletcher's ***** really. 25 years old, played nearly 100 games for us and name his highlights. Not a project anymore, but good luck to him.
For me a project is someone who is probably 18 to 21, he's never going to be better than he is, as I said on an earlier post, the price tag was not his making, but his lack of commitement & sadly he'll be remebered for both, but Monk has a lot to answer this club for

Decent enough finish against Reading, but a poor penalty against Huddersfield, keeper got a hand on it and would be disappointed not to save it.

3 shots on target in 321 minutes of action since he returned. That's not even a shot on target a game.

I like him, I hope he stays, although it looks like he won't. But it is fair to say he hasn't really contributed much since his return, and when he has, he hasn't looked fit or confident.
