Interesting..... he played a regular part in their run to the FA cup final and in the league durign that season, I have a mate who is a Millwall fan and I seem to remember him saying that they rated him pretty highly at the Den, didn''t have the funds to buy him at the time though. Having said that his form must have taken a bit of a dip in recent years if he ended up at Colchester. Can''t be any worse than Semmy though!!!

all the more reason to sign him then!!! our players have been criticised for a lack of bottom, maybe he could be part of the solution to that problem!

And there was me thinking that they had a lack of b*llocks!

No b*llocks, no bottom, we really must stop signing these invalids.

Gave away a pen for flooring Pattison in our last meeting... but that was a strange old game; Cureton got a hat-trick, Otsemobor broke the invisible wall to score and Lisbie scored. [:|]

This from a Col U season ticket holder I know:

Take him!!!!

Seriously, we need him off our wage bill. He was highly-rated when he came to us in Jan 08, a Spurs trainee who had played in a few Prem games for them, and we outbidded Southampton for him at the time. But he just cannot defend, maybe he''d be better utilised as a right-winger rather than a right-back, he is a liability when anyone runs at him. He has been nowhere near the first team since Williams left. I don''t think he even played a single minute for us since November, and he hasn''t been injured.

Oh and keep him away from the pie outlets...

Sounds a bit familiar, I think we''d best stay away from him!

[/quote]That''s what I was wondering... How come he''s failed to do a job at our match 1 rivals? On paper he sounds decent but... That said, Roeder kept a few decent players inexplicably in the cold for a while so who knows whether Gunn''s team could get the best out of them?

He''s a worse version of Jon OtsemoborWow Otsemobor/Ifil right back options, what a RB duo that would be.

[quote user="First Wizard"]I believe Cam rates him, but he also has an attitude problem............apparently.[/quote]

 

Cam''s always had an attitude problem ! I seem to remember that you would be one of the first in the queue to tell Cam to pee off and stop being so pompous and patronising so you''ve changed your tune.

Easy mistake to make, same surname and first initials. Iin that case I retract my optimistic statment, he could very well be worse than Semmy, surely if he was that promising he probably would have stayed at Spurs.

the guy is not wanted at Col U, the manager is trying to break him and force him out, he has to come into training 2 1/2 hours early by him self (this is from a mate who plays 5 a side with a majority shareholder)
