Shame this couldn't have been sorted out earlier. Myles was one the club wanted to move on. Now we need to move on and sign the two players we want. Just go for it or it'll be another 'what if' season.

We're you serious about a marquee going up ? Why would they need one to announce a signing ? All that stuff can be done at GP

It was a reference to a Marquee signing which hopefully will now be announced after the latest departure.

Good move BFC. Myles wasn't going to get any better

OK - is it time to panic now???

No !! All part of a cunning plan (says he with everything crossed)

I don't think anyone will be that surprised - imo Myles produced a few outstanding performances but couldn't be relied upon to perform (more so than probably anyone else in the squad), and I think we all want better than that.

Good luck, thanks and cheerio :)

Does this mean we can afford Lee Barnard on loan now?

Lets hope that the timing indicates that there is someone on the way in(I think there better had be)

On the subject of the Gills, their website is much better looking than ours and how dodgy does that kit look?

I think we have been trying to move Myles as long as we have been trying to sign Hayes lets hope both now happens

So Gills announced the Weston signing after 12 and he's in their squad tomorrow, so hopefully we will do similar...

Even if we were to sign 'this' striker today bearing in mind he wouldn't have trained with the squad thus meaning he knows no other players strengths/weaknesses, would you even want him in the squad so soon? I know I wouldn't.
Just get this game out of the way, stop panicking and have faith in the team we already have and fully support them and get behind them. I'm sure Uwe is working around the clock to rectify this so for the time being... Chill dudes x

I've been reasonably a chill dude for most of the time since we dispensed with Grella and it became transparent that we had only two options up front, but I must admit that now, however months it is later, I beginning to warm up a bit

I also note that, on the Gills website, MA says of Myles and the bloke they signed from Bournemouth, words to the effect of, " They both have good experience of getting promotion from this division and with these two we get leadership, goals, experience, speed and excitement ". Good old MA - can always be relied on for sold gold bullsh1t!!

I correct my post, Myles has gone.. We're f#*ked... Uwe out x

hopefully you are joking, weston has been far far too inconsistant in his time with us, 1 good game followed by 5 or more bad/ineffectual ones. with such a small squad we need our key players to perform EVERY game if we are to challenge for the playoffs. one more of the previous regimes mistakes off the books is good news in my opinion, well done uwe :wave:

Hopefully this means that in the short term Farid is fit for tomorrow and in the slightly longer term there is some one on the way

Slightly....out of nowhere (from external appearances). I'm sure he would have been used if he stayed, but given he's gone shows he's not a vital part of the team moving forward. (Which we knew already).

If you stop and think about it this shouldn't impact us too much, although you'd have to hope that one of the reasons behind it was to free up some of the budget to put in a better offer for a target who may currently be holding off.

I doubt we'll get someone in today, but if we announce a great signing over the weekend I won't be moaning.

Goog luck Weston, I hope he does well going forward.

Probably a good move both for BFC and Myles.
At least it frees up some player budget.

The problem is that the Club regarded him as one of three strikers and it has taken us since September 2011 to sign up just one striker (El Alagui) with no sign of another at present.

Goals will be our problem this season as it was last.

I feel that we have let myles go as something is about to happen or someone has agreed to sign for us. Even though myles isnt a striker im sure we wouldnt leave ourselves to short.

I know these things work a bit like a chain when you are buying a house. Hopefully we are moving from a Myles to something more palatial. I am worried, however, we are going to be in the Holiday Inn Express for a while.

Go on Brentford, please prove me wrong! In Uwe (but a bit less in Warburton) we trust!

Surely even the most cynical fan must think that we've agreed a deal for someone otherwise we wouldn't have let myles go?

or... Surely even the most rose-tinted fan must think why have we let myles go before signing someone else?

I think we MUST have someone coming in...

I'm sure we have other players in mind and Uwe's explanation - Myles is a winger and I don't expect to use wingers - makes sense, but in the very short term, we are ridiculously light up front. Not time to panic, but it needs to be sorted in the next week or two

We let Woodman and Grella go without replacements so I wouldn't hold your breath!

We also let Macdonald go and replaced him in a panic with Grella, so if there is a replacement lined up I hope it has been some time in the planning

We let MacDonald, Alexander and Woodman go without replacements coming in immediately (or indeed for some time) so whilst I admire your optimism ...............

Wish we'd hurry up and announce someone coming in...

Think I'm going to have a difficult discussion on Monday morning about why I didn't get any work done on Friday pm.

Well because I personally cannot believe that rosler would allow Weston to go without having a iron clad deal in place for a replacement, do u?

True however it might have been a case of Gills want him now and not in a week or two

Hmmm

Returning to my house moving analogy, if you get an offer for your house that you can't refuse but have no where to move to, you still move and hope to line something up soon, hopefully better than you were initially hoping for. Fingers crossed.

And there in a funny sort of way is the answer, after all the flak he took I can't see him willingly selling Weston without having a deal lined up. Also it's been openly reported that we will sign a striker very soon so surely this is just confirmation that the wheels are in motion? Alexander and McDonald were entirely different situations as they both engineered the moves whereas rosler seems to have sanctioned this one? Hey I could be wrong but that's my take on it.......

I have commented on the Weston thread and I have no problem with letting him go but what annoys me is thatbGillingham first came in for him acfewcweeks ago but at the time we wouldn't let him go for a variety of reasons.

I just wish UR and /or MW had pulled the trigger on this deal when it was first mooted as then we might have been able to bring in the required strikers before the season started rather than after.
