Prob for the best. The others need a good run in the team.

They are probably paying him more than the minimum wage he was offered here

Not unhappy about this, Saw hime quite a few times over the years at West Ham and he was dreadful.

Bring Wolf back. Give him some games players like Wark, Butcher, Mills all made senior appearances when young. Why keep sending out our youngsters for other clubs to benefit from then sign other clubs has been on high wages.

An injury prone 35 year old who wanted high wages? Dodged a bullet there, I think. We have Chambers, Toto & Pennington, while Knudsen can play centre back (I won't mention Spence). We also already have a 30 man first team squad!

But you did mention Spence

Getting Woolfenden back would work if need be and swap Spence for Josh Emmanuel now.
