  1. Past hour
  2. Unfortunately I have a funeral in Ireland to attend. My thoughts will be with Spike and his family at appropriate times.
  3. NJ was clearly irked by Smith's penchant for diving into challenges and didn't hide this in interviews. He was subsequently dropped to the bench. I expected him to be listed. McQuoid was obvious. I am really surprised about Gray, having been chosen by NJ only last August and never having been given a fair run of games. He was a more effective CAM than Cook (not hard I know) but wasn't suited to other positions. He could've played wide roles but our formations don't have these positions. I had thought the third player would be Mullins. Personally, I don't think Cook, Lee, Mullins or Sheehan are up to it. NJ will be judged on next season. If he continues to play Cook & Lee in advance of others, it could cost him.
  4. Must say that I agree about McQuiod and Cms being up for transfer and moving on etc, but Smith and Gray not. Smith i would keep as a squad member for next season as Wimbo has already outlined he is still good enough to bring on when the team needs shoring up in the mid-field area, as for Gray I think he has not had a fair chance cos as Wimbo say's every time he's had a run of a few games he has shown improvement and then been dropped again, I don't obviously know how he performs in training but to me he's still young enough to improve wheras others have expired in this department.
  5. Guttridge, Williams and Benson all released by D&R. Apologies Ders.
  6. Today
  7. Thanks Ray.
  8. Hi Steve, I hope all goes as well as possible tomorrow. A big thank you to you and Curlz for representing 262. Best wishes, Ray.
  9. Yes on the books until their contracts run down plus the usual mixture of main stand attendance punishment, loans and possible re-evaluation by Jones successor.
  10. Smith has been a very loyal and committed player. Like others on here, I would be more convinced those that have arrived after him had set the world alight, even briefly - alas, not (yet?) the case. What happens if no one wants them, presumably they stay on the books?
  11. Plus a permanent goalie.
  12. This time last year or thereabouts NJ was talking about having a 'slimmer' squad in terms of numbers. He then proceeded to fill his boots with midfield clones it seems. Smith: thanks for everything.......bye.......next McQuoid ..............bye.........next Gray........deserves a chance for a run of first team games somewhere.....bye........next. Shopping list: Big CB who wins headers, MF who puts it about, Big CF who offers a plan B.
  13. Nathan jettisoned Wilko, MISTAKE, now it's Smudger's turn, MISTAKE. I would sooner have one Smith in the squad rather than a dozen Lee's and Cook's. It's a man's game and whimps and invisible people, I won't call them players, are not needed. I have been a supporter of Nathan so far, retaining these two tossers makes me question my opinion. There's no way out of League 2 with these two.
  14. Fair point Ders: I have cut and pasted my response as per the contracts thread & totally agree with your analysis of the listing: I feel sorry for Gray who even after showing a touch of decent form, something Cook never did, he just used to get dropped by NJ. Again on the blind NJ/Cook theme, had Smith have been brought on in that last 10 minutes against Blackpool last Thursday, then just maybe we would be heading for a good day out this coming Sunday. In the case of McQuoid, definitely the right decision: I wish all three of them well as they seek new clubs. Now that some of the dust has settled on the departures list, we can bask in the summer sunshine in the knowledge that once again our midfield destroyer, Olly, and creative genius Cook, will both be able to leave an impression on numerous games next season.
  15. I started this thread because Wimbo's was about out of contract players which McQuoig, Gray and Smudge clearly are not.

  17. I can understand McQuoig being dispensed with. Did Gray really get a fair crack of the whip? But I'd have Smudge in my team any day rather than teacher's pet waste of space Cook. The prospect of Cook appearing every time he's fit fills me with dismay. And even if NJ does recruit a MF, I doubt he'd replace Cook.
  18. Both he and Ryan Harley ripped us to shreds at KR in his last season with Exeter
  19. So Smith, Gray and McNogoal it is. http://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/luton-town-nathan-jones-jonathan-smith-jake-gray-josh-mcquoid-3724683.aspx
  20. Agree, Sercombe would be a really good capture for us.
  21. An additional departure PH74 may well be Paul Hart as I understand the insomniac’s society have commissioned him to do a special late night version of A Book At Bedtime on Radio 4. Sky are offering a free sports subscription for anybody who remains awake after the third minute.
  22. Yes please. http://www.bedfordshire-news.co.uk/would-oxford-united-midfielder-be-a-good-signing-for-luton-town/story-30352183-detail/story.html
  23. Not to be a pedant, but actually winning just 4 of our draws would have been enough - that would have converted 4 points into 12, and given us (at least) +4 to our GD, which would be enough to see us leapfrog Pompey. Anyway, next year right? 🙂
  24. Much that I don't want it to be so, I wouldn't be surprised if Pelly was one of the three. Inconsistencies through no fault of his own (hell, why wasn't he tried in goal when Walton left?) and possibly/probably one of the more valuable assets whilst he still has a year left on his contract. If it does happen then I'll probably subtract a few more respect points from our manager's stack as I see Pelly as having a real untapped quality that nobody else in the current squad offers. As regards the others, McQuoid and Lee would be my best guesses - again, because their contracts mean the club receiving a token postal order instead of nowt. Mind you, by my same criteria, Smudger could be in that exit list, especially as he has an option call for a further season thereafter. But he is, generally, a Duracell powered Mr Reliable to stabilise a midfield that's wobbling ... Jeez, I wish Smudger came on vs Blackpool instead of Cook! NJ signed Gray, Mullins and Cook so I can't see any of them being thanked and kissed goodbye. Neither can I see it being Paul Harzzzzzzzzzz
  25. Ok, being more serious now, if I were to bet Lizard's money on it, I would say McQuoid, Smith & either a disillusioned Gray or Mullins.
  26. Well I suppose it’s a case of “thank you and good luck at your new club Jordan, Olly & Glen”.
  27. I would agree those two look likely but fear the third will not be Cook.
