Conor Washington contract terminated By mutual consent. I do think he is a good player just some clubs don’t work for certain styles. Wish him well for the future
That's generous! Exactly how did we as a club fail Mr Washington as a footballer? I'd say he was given many opportunities to hoist himself by his own petard. He could have played another 100 games for us, and I doubt whether he'd have got in double figures as a goalscorer.
There you go yet again, having a pop at the club. If anything it was CW that failed QPR, but it was more a case I guess of the lad not being the right fit here. He's a good footballer but maybe a division lower.

He seems to do well for NI and they rate him.
But had nothing more than a purple patch at Posh just before we sold Austin. We panicked & overpaid for him.
That pretty much sums it up for me. It seemed reasonable enough to take a gamble on him, but their chairman completely mugged us off with that fee.

Hard to bear him any ill will though, given his workrate.

He seemed a genuine and hardworking guy but I have to say, he was one of the worst No 9s I've ever seen play for us.

Sheron was ok: the amount we paid for him made him look worse than he was.

I did and yes they were terrible. Maybe I've judged Washington too harshly. Sheff Utd seem to think he's worth a punt but it's a freebie and just for a year so they're pretty circumspect about him.

Actually his stats were better than I remembered - 19 goals in 63 games (nearly 1:3)

Sheron was indeed ok and like Conor worked his socks off.

Sheron was under a lot of pressure. According to his new manager, Stewart Houston, his signing would get us promoted and he arrived from Stoke scoring every other game.

I am not sure what it is about Conor, his Peterborough video was very impressive. I know he stepped up a division but if the ball arrives at your feet and you can put it in the back of the net there isn't a lot of difference between League One and The Championship.

He does get in to good scoring positions, creates some useful assists, but rarely scores.

Possibly he is a little Jamie Vardyesque. Vardy isn't stupid, he knows he is highly unlikely to have the same impact at another club and Leicester play to his strengths which is why he stays there. Peterborough could have been the same for Conor, he seems to do better picking the ball up and running at defenders as with his goal at home to Forest, great finish.

As Ux says it's hard to bear him any ill will so good luck Conor.

well, whatever your views we're agreed on one thing.....he was consistent, sadly consistently poor.

shame, I always felt there was a good footballer in their waiting to get out.....but there again I thought that about myself when playing Sunday league.. :shock:

I know he's "one of your own", but with the best will in the world, a goal every 7 games is a very poor return for a £2.5M striker

You're clearly obsessed with misreading me, or just not very bright, or both. I was ASKING THE QUESTION (sarcastically, rather obviously) as to how we did (read DIDN'T) fail Washington, who had many opportunities, as my image indicated, to prove himself.

Never mind . . .

It's a piss poor return for a £2.50 striker, I'd suggest.
