Beyond 3rd hand rumours that he demanded to be played, where does all of that from? People write on here as if they know him. He seemed a decent guy when he did the LS pod.

Most of last seasons squad were decent lads and all got on.
Understand they all went out Saturday night as a final get to together.

Unfortunately people make their mind up on players.
Always found all our players to be approachable and down to earth.

Back in training in about a month. They don't have long to decide before we need to crack on.

Obviously some of the squad will be late additions, need that core together asap

In relation to communicating and decision making from a captain, that was one of the glaring things about Brandon Copper when he was here, right from the off, I could hear him directing and warning of closing players

I think if Cooper stays fit we are currently talking about whether we sign him for our League One campaign next season.

I can see Hunt leaving and tbh i probably would in his position. Has seen us offer contracts to 2 players who can play in his position and must wonder if he will play much. If Egbo signs he wouldn't be my first choice

Hunt is an excellent, solid, versatile defender.

Just not sure if he fits the style we play.

I feel like if he does go to Orient (an obvious destination) he will be a threat to us next season so rather selfishly I hope he stays! He is always solid and so versatile, definitely a good option but it does feel like a move would benefit him more. It'll certainly be our loss too.

If you read what I wrote I did wish him well. I can still say that him being given the armband impacted his game negatively and he may have been more focused if not having that responsibility.

He's a L2 player, maybe a lower L1 player. Not sure why he gets a hall pass over anyone else? Because a few people might be pally with him? It all comes across a bit GWR and their obsession with JS-W...fine, a decent enough guy but just another average footballer.

===

Regards Captaincy...Baudry would likely be the one (if he stays). Think Ellis probably gets the token "club captain" if that's still a thing but matchday captain, possible a new target that comes in and takes the armband. Sean Morrison would be the ticket. Probably wouldn't drop down but I have a feeling he'll sign either a recuperation based contract with Cardiff with a loan option when he's fit again from his ACL. Would be smashing loan to build up some game time Smiley

That doesn't solve Town's captain problem immediately though Smiley

My post wasn't aimed at you, just generally.  People have their opinions on him, but the decision has been made, and overall his time with us was positive.  Now that we know that he is going, wishing him well is all that needs to be said, no need to pick holes in what was overall a positive and productive stint with us over the past 5 years, especially considering the 2 massive injuries he experienced during that time.

Regarding the captaincy, most successful teams in any sport have captains throughout the squad.  It is an issue that we need to address in the summer.  One captain is not enough.

To be positive, Reed and Williams contracted to next season is brilliant...oh for Payne, too...

If we acheive the unlikely and secure Payne the rest of L2 will be shitting it.

A full pre-season for Reed, Payne and Williams after a season of knowing eachothers games is frightening at our level.  Recruitment so far under the Bens has been, on the whole, good, so hopeful we will be able to fill the rest of the squad with enough quality to get off to a strong start.
