Ex-Darlo player left Portsmouth in January to make the move north to Motherwell.

Been banging them in for fun since 4 goals in 5 Scottish Premier league games

He was only 18/19 years old when Darlo released him. He’s gone on and had a half decent career since then.
It was Mark Cooper who let him go I think.Dont think we even got a fee for him.

You certainly don't like the lad do you Pete.. When he left he was always going to be a good prospect and Boro were the right team to do that at the time...

Not really Harry, couldn't score if his life depended on it, I was amazed when Boro took him on. Didn't we release him?

I was amazed when Boro took him on, but who's been proved right and who's been proved wrong?

Curtis was an early starter and a late developer - he's done well for himself.

It never happens when a club release a player and a club from a higher league takes him on. Curtis Main was very lucky, but I guess you make your own luck.

You clearly have a gripe with the lad. The fact a higher and much bigger club took him on can only reflect well on the player and poorly on the club that released them.

There are clearly other factors to be considered, inc budgets and restrictions at one club, while the other has a great history of developing young talent. However regardless of how it’s dressed up, the lads gone on to well and good on him I’d say.

4 in 5 looks good - it's better than 0 in 5 but.....
1 goal in a defeat against hibs
1 horrific goal mouth scramble goal that could've gone in against anyone v Hearts (a game in which he did diddly squat)
and 2 more against Ross County and Hamilton? I think - both teams who really are utter gash.
Fair play to Main, if he can secure a move to Motherwell, he'll get to play a few games in front of 18,000 crowds v Hearts & Hibs, 35-50,000 in front of the Ugly Sisters.
Better than mucking about in League 1 turning out in front of a few thousand at spotland, gig lane etc
