Do the board receive payment for their services to ictfc? If so rather than treat players badly why not give that fee to the player budget to allow ofw to play?

I signed for Grimsby Town as a goalkeeper in the early 60s so   do you think I should offer my services

Who knows what the hell is going on with OFW. I only see that everybody loses from this. Fon Williams is not playing and his hopes of international recognition goes down the pan. The Club has yet another PR disaster, is paying for a player who won't be played and have a calamity in goal who has been a contributing factor in more than one defeat this season. In fairness, OFW made his own fair share of ****-ups last season (near post free kicks were a particular shambles), but I sense that Ridgers is in his own class ewhen it comes to goalkeeping talents.

In hindsight I wonder if things would have been different if we had released OFW instead of Dean Brill when JH had to make the choice of who to keep. I seem to remember  that many on here highlighted the valid point that although Dean Brill was the better keeper OFW would bring in a windfall from his involvement in the Euro's.

Not sure how much we made from the Euro's, but probably not enough to justify  some shambolic goalkeeping  performances that undoubtedly contributed to our slide out of the SPL.

IMO Ridgers is obviously struggling for form so bringing  in the experienced Esson to try and steady a rocking  defence must be an option.

OFW was so promising a couple of seasons ago, What happened?

Never mind wallowing in bad feelings . If at all possible, OFW and the club should sit down and negotiate and try very hard to make or thrash out  a deal. He was a fine goalie  and maybe if they can come to a mutually beneficial agreement then he might be able to regain his form and all that may lead to. Just a thought!

The stumbling block that seems to be halting a resolution of the dichotomy  should be  torched and encouraged to wither away. Sitting this player on the sidelines spinning his wheels just seems to be so unrealistic and non-productive that the mind boggles.:amazed:

Would a loan deal for OFW be a way out? Presumably this would have to wait until January 2018 though

.

Club won't put him out on loan as it's the parent club that would be still paying his wage. Why give another club his services and we pay for it.

his wage would at least be subsidised by the club he plays for

Given how the club seem to have announced to the press that players were being released prior to telling players themselves (Meekings) and the poor management of the Draper transfer to save face I'd be tempted to side with OFW Re who's not being entirely up front in regards to his situation. 

If an appearance bonus is the problem sit him down and ask him to either remove it or defer it in order to play. It's not exactly something that hasn't happened before.

Allegedly OFW is awaiting to sign a deal to move to America, so is happy to just wait it out. Not sure when the American season runs but that will get him the profile needed to get into the Wales WC squad. The offers he's had in the UK are not what he's looking for either in terms of club profile or package and ICT don't want him.
