when I spoke to Tommo last year, he said with Gary Jones it was all confidence.

Gary used to drink up the White Hart in Hockley when he was chilling out and we got to know him quite well.

You are spot on. He didn't have a great deal of self-confidence. Nice fella who I thought was a better player than he thought he was, himself.

Scored a lovely back heeled goal away at Norwich on Boxing Day 1995

Not his last game certainly, though quite possibly his last season.That 18 month contract will make it expensive to pay him off though.
It would not surprise me if he left and we DIDNT pay off his contract. If he knows he is past it and it’s obvious he is not going to play then he nigh simply want to move on and do something else. Additionally some players have said they feel a fraud picking up a salary knowing they won’t play. He may feel leaving now (end of season) is a more dignified way to bail out.

my memory might be playing tricks but isn’t that what Harris did?
