Yet another name that continues to be ‘linked’ to the exit gates is Mike Williamson.

Last week, or was it this week – I lose track of time these days – he was off to Newcastle but according to sky sports, who ‘understands Watford are closing in on a deal to bring Mike Williamson back to Vicarage Road,’ he is going back from whence he came…

Quite clearly the thoughts ‘Watford are thought to be still owed money from Portsmouth for the original deal’ are the case or the guy would have played for us by now – the fact that he has not even got a look-in during the FA cup speaks volumes, right?

What a truly bizarre deal this would be if he went full circle, and what a waste of 6-months it has been for everyone!

I hope for the sake of everyone though that we just tie this up quickly, if it is even happening, and do make this a deal where he goes back for good – not on loan – and any money ‘owing’ is written off as a result…

Also, and instead of starting ANOTHER article about players going, I will include here this time!

Burnley continue to talk about Dave Nugent with their new manager Brian Laws telling their official website that our troubles, the fact that Burnley want to keep him and Nugent ‘does not want to go back’ leaves them in the ‘driving seat’ to do a deal.

It is obvious what all sides want but I also think that we cannot let it be ripped it out of anymore and should not lend Burnley a player that we continue to pay a fair amount for that could then deliver another nail in our coffin?

If they cannot afford him now, what makes anyone think they will be able to afford him in the summer?

So why, like I say, continue to foot the bill for someone else – all in all this is a no win situation unless we sell him, and Burnley, like most other clubs it seems, are not willing to buy!

UPDATE

On Thursday evening sky sports ‘reports’ that Newcastle have had an offer accepted for Williamson…
