Martin may be on his way?


#143

Wow, after so much hype, it is disappointing a little. And I didn’t know Walsall moved in last few weeks, so commuting started to be a problem. When he signed, it wasn’t it seems.


#144

Can’t argue with that sentiment. He made the defence worse - quite a feat.


#145

Clearly not paying him enough (or a long enough commitment) to allow him to take a place locally


#146

To be fair to Keats, the inTENT was good.


#147

Keates needs taking down a peg or two :wink:


#148

Or just start again with a blank canvas!


#149

Maybe he can rope someone else in.


#150

Did the club forget to tell us ?


#151

Are they supposed to tell those pesky supporters everything? What an annoyance, what’s it got to do with them anyway?


#152

I have no words … how about Fitzwater ?? Where was the update on that ??

Masi said Martin was an honest and intelligent pro! Not that clever to check the map to understand where Walsall was in relation to Brighton!


#154

I don’t believe the whole personal issues excuse. He said it was a commute but in the past year he’s been at Rangers and had a month at trial at West Brom.

Keates has probably told him how it is, hasn’t guaranteed him with first team football week in week out and he’s turned around and said he isn’t coming up here just to do abit of coaching.


#155

Who cares? Our defensive problems worsened once he arrived.


#156

I care as its another example of how badly the club is run.


#157

Is it ? More a commentary on the Manager who worked for 2 months to get him here and he turned out to be below par to say the least!!!


#158

‘I’m probably deemed a weirdo’: Russell Martin, the footballer who joined the Green party.

All them miles to Brighton and back ain’t helping his carbon footprint.


#159

If Russell Martin facilitated the Jarvis move, then maybe it was all worth it after all.


#160

Possible he pointed them in the direction of Norman as well.


#161

Good shout. So he was rank at the two jobs we brought him in to do. But the side-of-The-desk scouting was a real boon.


#162

He has obviously taken his winning mentality to MK Dons a match made in heaven!
