  • I sent a message to Darius Charles on Instagram which he took the time to respond to, wasn't expecting that. Top man.

    Dave, Dave, Dave.....just because he's signed a one year extension that doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't offered a longer one.

    That's all. Calm down and enjoy the off season. It's only the first week

    This is @davecz 's busiest time... :smile:

    It's funny how life turns out.
    When he clattered Ingram at Stevenage for their first goal in a 3-1 win for us in the playoff final Southend season, little did we realise he'd sign for us one day, and become an epic character.

  • We are getting to the point where it is almost scientifically proven that wearing blue quarters changes character and lives for the better.

    Sorry @drcongo - I’m struggling to see what your point is. I’m not angry . What have I made up?I’m just saying that I’m surprised we couldn’t move to more than one year contract. You do get on your high horse very easily. You need to chill a bit.

    I can see you’re struggling, which is why I laid it all out very clearly for you. Maybe numbers would help.

    1. Mehmeti had a one year extension triggerable by the club
    2. We triggered that extension
    3. He might have been offered a longer contract and turned it down
    4. He might have been offered a longer contract and be considering it
    5. He might have not been offered a longer contract at all

    1 and 2 are the facts that we know. 3, 4 and 5 are unknowns. You don’t know, I don’t know, that’s why the word “might” is in there.

    Now, in this thread you’ve been getting indignant about numbers 3 and 5, even though those are NOT known facts. Remember, only 1 and 2 are the known facts.

    I’m surprised we couldn’t move to more than one year contract

    This sentence proclaims that number 5 is a known fact, and it isn’t. Only 1 and 2 are.

    I know loyalty is a world you don't hear much in football but hopefully he will remember we saved his career when he was dropped by Norwich

    This one assumes 3 is a known fact, it isn’t. Only 1 and 2 are.

    So in answer to your question “What have I made up?” - pretty much everything you’ve posted in this thread.

  • @drcongo - I don’t know how I’ve survived life without you explaining everything for me. You clearly must have a lot of time on your hands. To be honest I’m not surprised if all your communications are as patronising and condescending.

  • @davecz feedback is a gift

  • Glad to have discovered the thing that doesn’t surprise you.

  • What’s worse is that I bumped into Mehmeti in Twyford Costa today and he told me he’d been offered a 12 year contract by Preston but had turned it down as it included a ‘smile as you earn’ bonus clause 😠.

  • Taking advantage of the 50p for an iced drink deal, a shrewd young man.

  • Step 1 - trigger 1 year extension.
    Step 2 - negotiate longer term contract.
    Simples 😀
