Not surprised. Disappointed. But once again not surprised.
Whilst I don’t agree with some of the comments expressed on this board today in relation to "how many games he deserved"etc., I’ve appreciated reading the majority of posts commending him for his honest, hard working and team approach to each game. Can we just focus on the good? He was never flashy, but he was an honest battler who gave his all and did so more than many other players who went before him throughout the years.
He and his wife are some of the nicest people you could ever meet and they’ve been so very good to me over the years. I’ve been able to express my gratitude to them personally and received some really nice messages back. This is one of the better sides of football where you can build relationships with players throughout their time at the club. It will be weird seeing somebody else in the #40 but understand that it’s the time for change at our club and I’m excited of where the list is heading.
But for now it’s just a big thank you to you Mr. Howlett! AWOOOOO!!!
