    MM hadn't forgotten him, every press conference he would tell us that Tomlin wasn't fit (yet).

    I wonder where Joe Bennett will end up. I can't see a lot of Championship clubs offering a big contract to a 31-year-old left-back who will miss the first few months of the season recovering from a serious knee injury.

    If Mick had given him some minutes in those last 2 league games at the end of the season he would have signed the deal by now. After watching his brother play in the under 23s until he was 22 and then fizzle out of the game altogether by 25 he doesn’t want to go down the same route. If he does sign then a loan to minimum league two club next season is a must for his development.

    Shame Newport didn’t get promoted as a loan there would be ideal.

    Wonder if Tomlin will be played while developing Colwill or if Tomlin is already effectively gone

    Smells of wage bill, all 3 high earners , all 3 at career ends, all 3 have had a few injuries that may become more regular as they age .

    That book of Tomlin excuses is wearing thin .

    We signed Callum Paterson when he was injured and couldn't play until October

    he did his in the December and if kept him out until the October, and he was in his early 20s.

    Bennett has a lot more miles on the clock. it could be October, or or could be a few months more than that. if wages are tight we can't afford to be giving one of our larger ones to someone who won't be able to play for the first half of the season

    Yes, but its not beyond the realms of possibility that Warnock will sign one of his old favourites in spite of an injury

    In the treatment room or McDonalds.

    Seems to me disgraceful that the club withdrew contract offer to Joe Bennet because he was injured.
    He’s been an outstanding servant and great contributor who’d done enough to be accommodated in some way.
    Shows how insincere and mercenary it’s all become.

    A bit more ruthless by the club that, but with such a greater focus on youth I felt Jonny Williams was a good player to keep around.

    The club isn't a charity

    Players know the risks and if they have been sensible they'll never need to work again.

    The club can't afford him so time to go.

    Where is it stated that the club withdrew a contract offer?

    surprised about Joe, though his injury would have played a part in the decision, i always liked Joe as a player

    I can understand Sol leaving, he wants 1 more season, but he must be one of the top earners, also if we want to challenge for the Prem, we will need slightly better

    From a business perspective, the decision not to retain the services of Bamba, Bennett and Williams is to be commended. As has been said, the club is not a charity and more to the point, it needs to be more prudent than ever in the aftermath of Covid.

    In a perfect world it would have been nice to retain Sol in some capacity for another 12 months but I don't think the club is in any position to make such a kindly gesture.

    One of those is fit to start next season, under 30 and likely to be on wages not much higher than what a League 1 club would pay.

    In a perfect world Sol would recognise we've already paid him since the 6th of March 2019 without much return as a player. We've done our bit for him as an aged player and hopefully he returns in the future in a non-playing role.
