  • Yet another ridiculous decision by Whooton! It's not as if we have a lot of attacking options. Chris Martin is better than Morisson and Holt, plus he doesn't demand £90k a week like Holt does. I dread to think what donkey Whooton is looking to sign in the window, I just hope it isn't the quite awful Craig Mackail-Smith, hes dreadful. Gedders x

  • I can't understand it either, but we are doing the same thing with Butterfield. I would have thought that Butterfield needs to feel settled somewhere and 'bitty' loan deals won't help with his confidence and feeling part of the club.

  • I actually don't understand what the thinking is here. Why is he being loaned out a month at a time?

  • loaned out until the jan window closes, well we should offer him a 1 year contract extension now and hope we can sell in the summer.

  • This is it, Swiss. As a free agent he`d probably be able to get a better wages deal, or some other inducement? And maybe Hoots doesn`t want to risk being stuck with him? In his "pomp" (back in the Championship, with loadsagoals in L1), he`d maybe have attracted a decent fee. I think we can wave bye-bye to that now?

  • He did fine for us in his debut season under Grant then in Lambert's fifst season, let's remember that and let him go with a fond goodbye.

  • As clubs know CM is out of contract in the Summer, they`ll all be trying to angle for a Freebie. That`s been obvious for a while. Or maybe City are wary of giving him an extension in case nobody bids for him? Then he`d have to stay with us.... Would perhaps have been wise to move him on last season? The Butterfield thing is odder still. Bolton had him for 3 months (?) but he only got 4 starts. So there was little point in that. We seemed so eager & determined to get him (with a serious injury to boot) it begs the question "Why". All will be revealed some day?

  • Why doesn't this twit stick to a subject he knows about - buterflies, birds, wild flowers etc., he clearly hasn't a clue about football!

  • Ah! Is this basically keeping him there while they decide whether they want to bid for him?

  • Realitsically, Martin hasn't scored for Swindon but he clearly has something they want. I would be rather surprised if he featured in Hoots' plans so he's going at the end of the season. The kind of club he's likely to go to won't have the kind of money that's been mentioned in some posts so they'll be holding off (unless he's one of the Lambert Norwich targets of course then he's worth £7 million).

  • It does not look like he will figure in Hughton's future plans but looks to be competitive at the League 1 - Championship level. I don't know how much it is really worth to try to negociate a new contract with him, why would he negociate if he knows that he is leaving and it might make him less attractive?
