Delaney's agent is kicking off on Twitter and accusing Evatt of breaking his word. So that's nice.

Cambridge confirm Lloyd Jones signing. Next!

Farewell to Delaney, good pro but we move on. Think that means there’s only Crawford (and kids) left from pre-Evatt.

That's the one. Delaney needs to get himself a more professional rep.

Sharron had got Guardiola to agree terms, but Delaney threatened to go on strike if she didn't give Evatt another chance. It was all very tense. :crazy:

I assume he means the last minute Cheltenham winner but DSB's suggestion is truer.

Given our chairwoman is on record as saying she never once even considered Evatts position and given I think she’s as honest as any owner we’ve had then I’d say it’s an agent who knows he’s overplayed his hand and now regrets doing so.

Appears to be. Seemed a bit of a prick when he was playing, so not that surprising.

Shame because Delaney seems like a good lad.

Probably a case of:

'If you help get us promoted i'll be looking at getting you a new contract'


When in reality Delaney was not as influential as neither he nor Evatt was expecting. I'm not surprised that Delaney's gone but I don't wish him ill either, he was certainly capable for the most part and is likely to be a little unlucky to be missing out next season. I'm sure he'll get a contract elsewhere.

His Twitter profile pic is Delaney. Has he only got one client :lol: ?

Honestly, it looks like the kind of thing an agent does when he's drunk after not getting a pay day.

Sorry, I'm not having this Delaney is a decent player. He's bobbins. That or extremely inconsistent.

Good riddens if his agent is pulling stunts like that. What's he saying to the lad?

Where do you think he will be off to next?

I’d say decent but inconsistent or error prone for sure. I doubt he’s going to be a huge miss for us.

Depends what you mean by "decent." I'm not sure Delaney is a worse "hoof it" centre back than Tutte is a "tidy" midfielder. They're both league players, but very much in the "okay in League Two" mould. In the same way that I am happy to see Tutte get another year as a steady lad who can cover in a crisis, I'd be the same if Delaney had stayed. The difference being Delaney didn't suit the Evatt style of play and Tutte does.

I’d say typical of traditional centre backs at this level. He’ll get a league two or bottom half league one deal for two years. We won’t get anyone much better as fourth choice centre half I reckon. We may of course sign a better centre half but would suspect that would be to replace Baptiste.
