I hope Fletcher stays

Genuine question but why would you hope Fletcher stays?

It can't be for his goals or his fitness, it can't be for his hold up play or consistency or him being a big strong target man. At  26 in October it can't even be because of his "potential"?

Can we buy Peterboroughs scouting team instead?

HES 20 YEARS OLD.  I've said this so many times, the majority of players his age haven't even made a first team appearance yet and are still developing in the underage groups or in the lower divi

Some rare positivity from me, but I don't have a problem with the Lumley signing at all. He's young for a keeper, on a free, has a point to prove and by all accounts has a good attitude. We know

You make a fair point @Redcar Rioja. I can certainly see those that argue he should also move on but given the rebuild we already got on our hands I think he a decent enough back to hopefully our main striker as i think over the course of a season he can score between 7-10 goals
 

Nonetheless, as i said if he does go I wont be overly gutted either. There a valid argument let both him and Britt go and bring in two new strikers and leave Akpom as the 3rd striker.

I really wanted us to tie down Fletcher at the start of the season, but injuries and a bit of demoralisation has made me far less bothered about it.

Certainly shouldn't rip up trees to keep him.

In a way, it'd be good to have a clean break from the curse of Garry Monk.

I know Howson is still here, but he's alright.

I'm hoping it's more Nixon BS, because if we sign Ched Evans I'm honestly done with the club.

There's more important things than football, and his case is a matter which means a lot to me personally in terms of the experiences of loved ones. The guy is guilty, no matter what the court says - it highlights the broken system surrounding sexual assault and rape in our courts rather than proves his innocence. 

The lad should still be in prison. Not earning thousands of pounds a week.

Really can't be arsed with signing him.

Plenty of baggage and I'd sooner not have the controversy even though he was acquited.

He wasn't acquitted, he was found not guilty. A subtle but nonetheless important distinction.

Come on, we once signed an actual convicted rapist, yet you're still here.

Aye - I was younger, wasn't as well researched or inforned and more ignorant to things then. The conversation is far more forefront and widespread now.

Growth, education, and self awareness are more valuable that whataboutism.

Weve also signed someone who failed drug tests multiple times, someone who committed actual sexual assault on the football pitch and a renowned xenophobe as a manager. All in the last 12 months.

Fits with the mould of players we've signed lately to be fair. 

Looks like our worldwide scouting network are extensively watch HM Slade.

I don't think any of those can be compared to the Ched Evans case to be fair.

All abhorrent, but sexual violence is much worse than failing a drugs test, grabbing a guys nuts, or being a Brexiteer. 

Football is littered with some awful characters, but there has to be a line. For me, Ched Evans is one of those lines.
