That article came out at the same time that Bowyer said talks with Taylor were ongoing. He was free to talk to other clubs but that didn't mean we weren't trying to agree a deal with him.

I want him to be instrumental in getting us promoted so I have justification for starting to call him Christ Aylor. Might do it anyway.

Chris Taylor and Luke Varney, who are both aged over 24, are free to talk to other clubs at the expiration of their contracts.

Kind of sounds like not being retained to me :shrug:
Your reading of it was incorrect, then, clearly.

To be fair, it could have been a little more informative. I'm sure the club must be aware that we have a large number of fans who'll put a negative slant on anything given half a chance.

Shame, decent player. Seems petty to scapegoat him for that West Ham fuck up.

I'd be surprised if it's just about that. The sending off came from misplaced effort, rather than a moment of madness. But he's been a bit hit and miss since joining, never really forced his way into the side.

Really like him for his general effort and determination, but that is often making up for a lack of quality. Lambert has given him his chances to impress and quite frank he failed pretty badly.

It's interesting that he featured at least in part in all five of the matches in the unbeaten spell after Lambert took over, but then only featured in two more league games - 8 minutes in the defeat at Bolton and the first half of the draw at Charlton.

I liked him, I think it's our loss.

That's what I took him for, hard work ethic and a motor. He just had his days where he would look like a good player but there were those days that he looked like he didn't know what he was doing on the ball. So you know what you're getting out of him for the most part, hard drive in the wings and if you play press, that's a pretty good player to have. I would have liked to keep him for the bench but he's not getting any younger and he probably wants playing time.
