Players come, players go.
Likes to hoof it up top a lot, and when he played against Championship opposition in Derby, he got caught out and should have been sent off in the 1st leg.
And don't forget the 1st leg of Cheltenham when he didn't deal with the corner correctly for their 1st goal.
Call me cynical but whatever is offered we should take. As people on here have said there will be a lot of players looking for clubs, who may turn out to be better.

I'm with you on this one.
He's had a good season for us, but he struggled at Sc***horpe and I can't believe he'll hold his own in the championship.

Exactly my thoughts.

I will be amazed if he holds his own week in week out in league 1, let alone the championship.

Take the money and run.

I think Charlie Goode would be fine in League 1 and can still improve a lot. Many of us thought Zander Diamond might struggle in that division but he was our player of the year. Last season Goode played against League 1 Burton and they couldn't cope with him in either box. I'd be sorry to see him go but wish him well at a higher level, as long as we get a decent (undisclosed) fee.

Turnbull struggled in L1 for Coventry didn't he?

Not sure (either way, we signed him off the back of it!), but he definitely struggled in L1 for Northampton.

Not a good sign already


             Gone     Gone 

                 Hoskins
     
Adams   Gone     Watson        Harriman
     
         Gone   Gone  Gone
                  Arnold

Add Marshall,Missi but Goode is still here? Possibly Oliver,perhaps Morton and Wharton. I feel that the most important player we would like back is Morton.

There is probably a correlation of teams being dismantled following promotion, before going on to struggle. We are probably a prime example of that. If we had the pedigree of a club likely to ride on the wave to future success we’d maybe keep a few more. However you view the PTS development saga, it doesn’t breed the confidence of a club about to push on to the next level.
We got relatively close with Carr, closer with Atkins but wouldn’t be surprised if we are looking down rather than up unless KC can work in his mysterious ways.
The positive is that financially we should keep our heads above water and hopefully we can hang around the third tier a bit longer than usual.

I disagree completely - he was immense in the home game against derby and there was a collective failure for the Cheltenham goal, you don’t mention how superb he was in the playoff second leg and final. He is only 23 and I agree with the club valuation of £1m, I’m far less confident that KC will get anywhere near that to invest in the team.

That's it, isn't it. Not saying KC should get the whole £1m if that's what he goes for but some of the funds would need to be reinvested back into the team, even half that amount should get us 2-3 great signings I'd have thought.

I've seen valuations on Twitter for Goode ranging from 'snap their hands off' for £500k to it will be a travesty for anything less than £3m!
What are your thoughts. Personally I think £500k is too cheap but would be happy with £750k.

I wouldn't be happy with anything less than a Christian Lee for him.

The club record is still 470k for Mark Bunn right?

So as long as we comfortably smash that then I think we have to be happy with the amount. The 1 mil mark seems about right.
It's not even what the player is actually worth, it's what he's worth to us

A young, very capable CB who Captained the side to promotion when we have no other senior CB options and it's an unpredictable market..

I also think how much of that cash KC gets into his coin purse is a massive factor.
If we got 500k but it all went to KC then fair enough. If we got nearer a million and it all went on a new drive for KT and some new paint in the boxes then you can be annoyed.

Saying all this, they may not meet the valuation and Goode may give us another year? He's been interviewing and posting about the promotion as recent as last night so who knows. We need to sign some CBs regardless?

Any realistic ideas or rumours on CBs KC has in mind? (looking mainly at ntfclad here  Grin)

I assume he will be off and think everyone has benefited from the whole thing (aside from Sc***horpe!). We have had 18 months of great service, 12 of which he led us to promotion as Captain. We get a club record fee and he gets a deserved move higher up the leagues, everyone benefits. Yes I would love to keep him, but who can blame a player for going to a club of that size. Will only have positive things to say about his time here. As a loanee playing with a facial injury and a mask showed his dedication to the cause, would have been easy just to sit it out.

I dont think selling Goode is similar to the dismantling of the league 2 winning side of a few years ago. Those players were largely frozen out by Page or let go oddly ala Adams (Holmes being the exception).

The thing is now Curle has another rebuilding job to do. At least this time he dosnt have to move on as many big earners, he has a pretty clean slate and the players here are ones the majority of which i assume he wants to keep. Got to trust that he can build a side to keep us safe next season. Based on the year past, got to have confidence in him to do so. I think patience is going to be required now though as we need a LOT of players and I think in this window particularly, a lot of players will not be taken on until late on.

I'm not sure what Goode is worth in todays probably somewhat devalued market but I sincerely hope KC gets a fair share of it to assist in finding a replacement or replacements?  Must admit that I'm a little concerned that we have had no news on Oliver resigning or not and perhaps more importantly the current situation on obtaining Morton and Wharton's services for next season.  I would have thought if getting either or both of those two back on loan was going to happen it might just have been decided one way or the other by now.  Also I thought some of our windfall from the FA Cup run would be used on strengthening the squad.  We did not use much of it in the January window so presumably some of that is also left?  If not where did that go? Keeping club afloat in these difficult times I suppose would be any reason given.  Please keep safe all of you, I don't think we are 'out of the woods' as yet with this awful pandemic.

As I understood it both Morton & Wharton may well be close to start of season before decisions are made, or at least until both of their clubs decide if they want them in the first team squad.
