3points Looks like we've agreed to pay up his contract.

So we actually had to PAY to get him off our books!!!

Obviously there'll be no transfer fee coming our way as Rovers are under a transfer embargo following their FFP infringement.

Christ how totally oxf*rd up is 21st century football becoming??

WoodleyRoyal big mistake letting him go, mark my words he will a much sought after player in a couple of years time, just needed to be playing regular football

What are you basing that prediction on?

Very much doubt we paid the whole final year of his contract up. We may as well have kept him if that's the case and have that extra bit of depth to the midfield.

Probably paid half and Blackburn pay half or something. He wont be on that much less at Blackburn so perhaps we just agreed to let him go on a free and Blackburn take over from a fresh contract.

Probably told he wasn't going to play here and the best thing is for us to cancel his deal and he starts a new one straight away with Blackburn and actually get some action. He wouldn't lose out on that much.

Anyway, great news.

I hope RFC don't take the high ground over FFP in the future.

Where does it say that?

The previous link said

That means the only way that Rovers, who are under a Financial Fair Play embargo, will be able to sign Akpan is if the Royals agree to cancel his contract or send him out on loan.


So he was happy to go

Still, let's not let facts get in the way...

There's no way we've paid up his contract.

As the other quote says we've most likely just torn it up so that he's legally a free agent so they can sign him up.

Well we have Shepparded in a new goalie....was he the Wright choice? Meanwhile, Makin a stronger back 4 with the Newman, McShane... i conKerr, although the latter did get on my Blatherwick. Keep them Cumming Mr Clarke . In midfield Igoe from looking a bit Meaker to slightly more Sidwell with the addition of Quinn,will he be McAnuff? We will have to keep Tabbs on that one. Upfront we have bought a new, Senior striker, Sa - although it now looks like we need Morley firepower. The Hunt i am sure will continue. Coppell the new signings with the youth team and Evans knows where we will finish, but i am sure we will all be Wdowczyking the table come the end of the season

Looking in your eyes, I see a paradise.
This world that I found is too Gooding to be true.
Standing here beside you, I want so much to give you this love in my Harte that I'm feeling for you.
Let them say we're crazy.
I don't care about that.
Put your hand in my hand, baby, don't Evers look back.
Let the world around us just fall apart.
Baby we can make it if we're Harte to Harte.
And we can build this thing together, standing strong for Evers, nothing's gonna stop us now.
And if this world runs out of lovers we'll still have Chris Gunter.
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now.
I'm so glad I found you, I'm not gonna lose you, whatever it takes to stay here with you.
Take it too the Gooding times, see it through the Blackman times.
Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do.
Let them say we're crazy.
What do they know?
Put your arms around me, baby, don't ever let go.
Let the world around us just fall apart.
Baby, we can make it if we're Harte to Harte.
Oh, all that Igoe need is you.
All that Igoe ever need.
All that Igoe want to do is hold you for Evers, for Evers and Evers.

And we can build this thing together, standing strong for Evers, nothing's gonna stop us now.
And if this world runs out of lovers we'll still have Chris Gunter.
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now.
