Has left.

Really quite disappointed by this, I liked him. Absolutely rapid and he scored goals. Wasn't too sure about him initially but he came good. Will never forget his contribution away at Hereford.

Can't say I'm surprised. He obviously didn't fit in with SK's plans - only good enought to keep the bench warm in spite of us being down to the bare bones of the squad.

With the right players around him I think he has great potential.

A bit surprised insofar as at first it looked like SK was getting the best out of him.  But he’s obviously fallen down SK’s personal pecking order. Personally I’d have thought that if we’ve got contracted players capable of producing, we should keep hold of them, unless there’s been an irreversible breakdown (ie Dawson, presumably)

He wont have a problem finding a new club.

I’m not sad to see him go, he did the minimum of what is expected of a forward, no physical presence no aerial presence, didn’t press, couldn’t hold the ball up for toffee. Seen far better players at this club.

When next I see City play, will I know the names or recognize any of the players?

There is such a thing as a settled team, who work for each other, a bunch of strangers do not, they may say to each other, hi my names Jimmy what's yours?

It has turned into a shambles this season!

There are no strangers here, only friends you have not met yet!

Blew very hot and cold, and his lack of closing down and chasing was pretty frustrating. Possibly wanted to go as he wants to play every week, so good luck to him. Frees up some money to hopefully find a superior replacement.

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

I hardly think that King can be blamed for the succession of injuries - as i stated in another thread, who has king actually let go?

King, Tomlinson and Armstrong none of whom were playing regularly for us. And Mitford. That’s it. He’s inherited a group of players who have not been properly physically prepared for the season.

Makes me laugh when I see some of our gormless fans moaning about King. The man has a 20 year career of success, we are lucky to have him. Can’t think of any other manager we’ve had in our history who has been as successful as a manager prior to coming to us.

Stop moaning and stop accepting mediocrity

Mediocrity is what we've got at the moment! Hence the moaning.

Have to agree with most of the above- a bit Like the nursery rhyme “ When he was good he was very very good and when he was bad he was ……”
I can understand why he didn’t get much game time at Brackley - still best of luck to him for the future, it will be interesting to see where he next appears.

Merry Christmas all.
