  1. We’re asking all those same questions here Joe, it really doesn’t make any logical sense. Evatt has this aversion to playing our young players in front of “his” signings, which is irrational for a start and has loaned most out to find them a home. Our two best, DP and Ronan Darcy were both sent out but offered new contracts. Darcy signed, Denis didn’t and it seems to have peed off Evatt. I don’t think he’s playing mind games here, he’s not going to call Denis back because he’s been promised money in January to bring in new players, which by all accounts he’s already got lined up. You’re right about ego though, he’s full of himself. I like people with confidence but I’m afraid Evatt goes way over the top. In fact it embarrasses us at times, so it looks like if you want Denis, you can have him for free. Utter madness to me but it must make sense to Evatt!! I really shouldn’t say this but if and hopefully when you get up next year, I’d love Denis to shove a hat trick down his throat against us and then you to get multi millions for his transfer onwards. Did I really just say that? What a sheet fan I am. 🤣😔
  2. Hi guys, as a Wanderers fan and also one of the many DP fans, I’m gutted Denis isn’t coming back and I can assure you he isn’t. There was no need to send him out in the first place rather than bed him back in here off the bench exactly as he has done with “his” signings who weren’t fit to play 90 minutes. Clearly Evatt doesn’t see him in his side so will let him go, despite the fact that most fans believe he’s exactly what we need right now. There’s zero chance of Evatt leaving any time soon and to be fair most don’t want him to, so we have to see what signings he makes in January to see if it’s a good decision or not. I’d say that leaves the door open for you to sign him and I think that you would have a super acquisition for free. Good luck to the lad wherever he ends up and I hope we see you both in L1 next season, assuming we’re still there of course!! 😉
  3. In fairness to Evatt, he’s done a cracking job since he’s been here but his mouth does seem to run away with him a la his silly “best team” comment. Few here could understand his loaning out of DP instead of gradually bringing him back off the bench, as he’s done with some of his new summer signings, because he was probably our best U23 prospect before his injury but it seems that he’d rather sign players than use our youth. At the same time he sent DP out, he also loaned another of our best young players in Ronan Darcy to an Icelandic club. Both had looked good two seasons ago when we were in L1 so they do have experience but maybe don’t fit Evatt’s style. Our loss may well be your gain because I think Denis has everything he needs to do well. He lacks a little pace as an out and out winger but could make a good No10 or attacking midfield player, so could still fit in with your wing back system. For me I’m hoping Evatt’s just trying to see if Denis has the desire to dig in and prove his worth but in reality I’m not sure he’s that clever and will probably let Denis walk away for nothing in the summer. Good luck in your promotion push anyway, I genuinely hope you make it.
  4. Interesting debate on Politic guys. As a Wanderers fan I’d love to see him back but I’m not sure Ian Evatt sees it that way, even though he has the offer of a contract. Denis is great going forward but Evatt prefers players who contribute defensively as well, which hasn’t been Politics strong point. We’re not sure why he hasn’t played more for you and seems only to come on off the bench. Obviously he’s not 100% match fit but then if he’s not getting the minutes, how can he be? If Evatt doesn’t call him back in January then obviously he doesn’t want him but do you? If you get promoted and I hope you do, would DP fit into your team, or would you want someone better? Interested to know your thoughts.
