  1. Shame – he put in some great performances but never really got his chance to get a run in the team. Still, we don’t see what happens on the training field, do we?

    • Could GGrandsGarcons maybe stand for Gold Grandson?….
      I’d be sad to see Obiang go. He’s always been Mr Reliable when he came on. Deserves to be playing regularly. He would be a good bet for any bottom half team I reckon….Whatever happens, I wish him all the v best.

  2. He is a good player, shame for him he has wasted a year of his career with us, if he does go wish him better luck at his new club.
