They really are a dumping ground for our unwanted cast offs. Embarrassing little club.

Love the Charlton clip - Ritchie Bowman & co....looks like a young Kerry Dixon playing for us, must have been his first season.

Pleased for the lad - despite ending up at Oxford .

Worked his backside off to get fit again and hope that knee holds up

What a dumb thing to say, they are in league One, why would they not go for a young player with championship experience regardless of where he came from.

Should never have been let go

He's 26, that's prime, not young.

But otherwise, completely agree.

Yep, hopefully he can stay injury free and have a good little career.

You would agree because you aren't clued up on football.

Obita was not the same player since his injury, he wasn't up to Championship standard and we made a significant saving by offloading him.

Fact.

He could do a job as a backup LB in the Championship but I have doubts over his ability as a starting LB from game to game

And you still have the problem of his fitness. If Richards got a long term injury, you wouldn’t be confident of Obita filling in for a while given he struggles to play three games a week (which we have pretty much every week this year)

In saying that we don’t seem to have a backup LB in the event that Richards does get injured, so will either end up relying on someone unproven (Bristow) or someone who doesn’t play LB as a primary position (e.g Gibson and he’s hardly proven himself)

Reckon we'd end up playing Yiadom or Esteves there. Gibson certainly doesn't look like a LB, but then I wouldn't have thought Holmes could play RB, so you never know.

Given how much Esteves likes to cut inside, might not be a terrible idea having him at LB.

Defender Gabriel Osho finally has a new club - Luton Town. The centre-back was released by Royals at the end of last season
