Gareth Bale may be looking for a new club on a short term basis to maintain his fitness for the World Cup. Perhaps we could offer him a pay as you play deal 🤣

It's a little known fact that Rylan Clark (of TV fame) was on the books as a pro footballer with Colchester Utd as an apprentice. He is a talented midfield player and now at the age of 33 wishes to have one last chance of playing football in a proper team in a proper league.

At present he is in negotiations with DFC as to a one year contract and if this happens it will obviously bring a large amount of good publicity to the club.

I’ve heard that Adam Johnson has just followed a Darlington sub reddit about recently Ofsteded secondary schools. His contract is up at Prison Fc and is probably looking to play locally 👀

I was walking my guide dog past the Arena and think I spotted Michael Bridges, Paul Connor and Danny Graham doing keepy uppies in the car park.

Erico Sousa released by Grimsby. What a signing that would be.

Seems strange as he played in the majority of their games this season. Must think he isn’t ready for league 2. I’d have him back instantly.

[/quoteVery good player on his day! Wages can be spent elsewhere… (Look at Nella for instance), great players no doubt but we can’t afford passengers if we really want to go for it.

No way would Sousa be a passenger. Alun stated many times over the course of the season that holding onto players like Sousa is vital for us to challenge for promotion

Bit of a surprise regarding Sousa as he played 33 games for Grimsby last season and started in the playoff semifinal and final. Think it likely he will be snapped up by a National League team, but if not would be very welcome back at Blackwell Meadows.

Sousa must be gutted that Grimsby let him go. Just hope he has something lined up with another club, as he deserves a chance at a higher league than us but I would love to see him leading our line again.

Did anyone ever actually see him play first time round? I’m not sure that Sousa and supporters ever met.

No all his games were behind closed doors during the pandemic.

It wouldn’t shock me if Sousa ended up at Harrogate Town or another League Two side willing to give a punt.

Only board members and the echo reporter were allowed in I think. Plus the media guys of course.
