Never really rated Ginge, but my god he is an upgrade in our defence.

Of course he is, that explains the slew of offers he must have received to play this season.

He's is exactly what we are missing ATM.

Is it too late to re-sign him? :idea:

Loved the bloke when he was here, “foibles” and all, so a part of me is pleased his reputation is not being tarnished by our current shittiness.

Met James Collins in Cardiff last night. He said he is going to Ipswich. He's gutted to be leaving though. Top bloke. Had a chat with me even though I was well pissed.

as much as we love him he is 35 slowing and not good enough now. diop and Balbuena are developing nicely in my opinion.
hopefully we will get Ipswich in the cup at home and give him a good welcome

time to move on time for rice oxford etc

Ipswich manager has today confirmed that the deal for Ginge is 'dead and buried now'

Not sure what has happened, think he was injured hence the delay but shame as think he would have done a decent job there, they certainly need an old head around as struggling a bit at the mo

Hopefully he can get playing somewhere soon

Sounds like the Tractors offer is only dead and buried because he's going elsewhere, with Villa and Stoke in the frame

Villa? Whatever. But, Stoke? No way, Ginge.

Application denied.

Signing on would surely be preferable.

What a man.

We have to have him back at the club at some capacity following his retirement.

Can't come as a surprise that a bloke as classy as Ginge would do something like that :thup:

There can be only one reason the bloke picked up that injury and so soon after starting the training session and that is, a lack of fitness

Age too, injuries over his career and the fact he is pretty much finished. Great gesture but think he is done.
