Wouldn't it be fantastic if this comes about. A real shot in the arm for all SWA.
If the Spurs money has been instrumental in any deal then we owe Connor J a huge pat on the back!!

I would guess that even if Norwood signs he will still go in the summer, but at least we will be guaranteed a substantial fee for him.

Would that not depend on whether we get promoted or not? Otherwise, he is losing money as the club he signs for will have to pay a transfer fee meaning less wages for the player. You are making it sound a very unselfish act of loyalty.

My guess is that he would like to stay, particularly on higher wages, but wants to keep his options open. However, he may still go if we get a good offer in the summer, but it's no longer a given.

It is exactly what Koumas did a number of years ago. He signed a new long term deal which inflated his transfer value, but he was gone within a couple of months. I think Norwood does feel some loyalty to the club, or he would simply have refused to sign. It is not as if he will be short of offers in the summer.

I think he could still go even if we are promoted, depending on the size of club that comes in for him. If a club like Sunderland or Portsmouth came in for him, they could probably offer three times what we are paying, regardless of what division we are in.

Larnell Cole reported to have left the club by mutual consent. Now that's a real shame in my book, a talented player who gives us a different option.

I hope so. Perhaps MM thinks that CJ and Gilmour will play ahead of him in that number 10 type role so he would be very limited in respect of game time.

I’m a bit surprised at this, comfortable on the ball and could do the unexpected. Perhaps an issue with fitness/work-rate?

He's getting very limited chances at Rovers. He needs to go and play regularly. Decent player on his day but a bit too hit and miss IMO.

That is an odd one altho maybe not. He never really established himself in the starting 11. Even tho he was excellent in some our early season home wins against the big guns, especially when playing behind Nors.

You look at his career and clearly he has talent coming thru the MU academy. But he’s never settled anywhere so can only assume he has issues with attitude. Almost another version of Adam Dawson. Clearly talented but not right in the head.

He’s one of those who perhaps is a bit of a luxury player

I don't quite get all the negativity elsewhere in letting him go. OK, he had a few decent games early on but it's not like he's been playing regularly. I wonder how many more games he would have played in this season? I can count them on one hand.

I guess it’s another example of the promotion winning team moving on. Sutton left last week and altho the hairs still stand up when I think of Larnies play off clincher against Ebbsfleet, life goes on and we have to look towards who can take us to league one.

I must say I was expecting much more positive news from the club today. However, Larnell has hardly made the bench recently, so must have been frustrated. Clearly he was unhappy and Micky would not have agreed to his release if he felt he was needed or couldn't be replaced. Ryan Williams' departure was expected by everyone. He has hardly featured.

Although there is currently plenty of quality in all departments, a run of injuries and suspensions would stretch the squad. We could probably do with a couple more players, although if Micky just blows the budget on Nors, I'll forgive him. ;)

Whilst Williams won’t have cost much, the likes of him and Akmanndu do seem a waste of a wage

Will be interesting when Cole and Williams end up. Warrington Town maybe?!
