    yeah, just saw the Kevin Nolan interview on Twitter, says he knew him from his Newcastle days, given he was kicked out of there as with all of his other clubs I’m surprised he’d take such a chance.

    That said I’d love to see Nile prove us all wrong.

    But we all know it will end in tears again

    Good. Let him be someone else’s problem. He won’t find another club that gifted him as many opportunities and backing as we did and he still took the ****

    i think whenever there is real pressure in the workplace anyone with a criminal record - probation, trouble with the police etc, gets scapegoated....

    it seemed to me that sacking Nile was simply Brown throwing him under the bus in an effort to save himself - despicable...

    being "late" was a bit of a pathetic excuse

    however perhaps there was something else going on -

    Would be nicefor someone in the know to really speak out and let us all know what truly happened there,i agree being late is a pretty weak excuse and hardly a sackable offence,would love to know just what really happened .

    My bet is that Nile Ranger is going to end up as a Christian rapper.

    ....everyone has improved since the worst manager in recent years left so why wouldn't the most talented bloke we have had on the books recently (Ranger) not have flourished?

    it does not really change what I think ....

    if he was doing drugs or any crime I would understand - the late thing just sounds a bogus .... and the timing was odd .

    maybe he was a really terrible malign influence - i don't know - i thought his football was ok and thought he was enjoying it here but really and truly I have not got a clue -

    i have noticed that sometimes expressing an opinion on here gets quite rude and aggressive replies

    Good riddance. Has the dream job and doesnt give a toss.

    As evidenced we are far better off without him.

    I think we made a mistake by giving him a long term contract extension. A lot of players seem to go off the boil once they secure a long term deal.

    It's a shame but I think we'd seen the best of him, for some reason I would still like to see him succeed, his talent which is undoubted and the desperation of some clubs to take a punt will always ensure he gets a chance somewhere else.

    However I think we are better off without now.

    A long term contract hasn't done Year wood much harm. It's the player, not the term of commitment. On this score the club is damned if they do, damned if they don't. Give a good player - which is how Ranger was viewed at the time - a short term contract and then he goes for a relatively small fee and the club would be at fault as well.

    At the time a longer term was seen as a good move.
