Andoh - Should we attempt to sign him now

No brainer! A winger who can actually beat a player and also tracks back when needed. Would be a real asset in League Two. Browny speaks highly of him so I'm sure he'll get offered a deal.

 

Your right is a no brainer. Let him go. He was good before this injury but after such a bad injury he won't be the same. Given reports from what others have seen that's the case.

After this length of time, if he still has a limp, he's not going to play pro-football again. If you **** your knee up enough you can't necessarily just "get over it". You are stuck with it. He should concentrate on just being able to live the rest of his life as well as he can.

 

And I hope the club will help as much as they can with this. It's a human being we are talking about here first and foremost. Not a piece of meat. Hope I'm wrong Enoch, but good luck to you mate. Stick at it.

Well said. I think he is quite a way off playing professional football again judging by the reserve game I saw him play in. Shame for him and the club.
How long does the "Duty of Care" run? I suppose at some stage if he does not recover his fitness, he would claim his PFA insurance as Phil Sproson did.

To me he is worth signing, on a contract equivalent of that to a youth player, or the minimum we are allowed to give him. Enoch gets a wage and the massive IF he recovers we have a very good player. If not the risk was low and unfortunately Enoch's career has been so cruelly cut short.

As far as I'm aware Vale will be carrying 7 of Bruno's signings who are not good enough for Lge 2 plus a perenially injured Forrester for next season, we cannot afford to take risks on any more players who may not play regularly in the first team whether due to injury or ability. Harsh I know but just reality.

Wouldn't you buy a top of the range tv that had no picture?

From what I've heard he will struggle to play again.

 

I heard this as far back as the Maidenhead replay at the end of 2015 given how his knee had blown up, lived in hope as he appeared so promising, shame for him but unlike many at least he had a taste of pro football. Good luck Enoch.

I'd hazard a guess that out of that bunch only De freitas and Knopps (when fit) have an immediate future with us.

I'm no employment lawyer but as I understand it unless their contracts are cancelled by mutual consent/agreement then the Vale have to honor them.

Pretty obvious though that a player a long way from home in a land where no one speaks his language and he has few friends and nothing to do will be more than tempted if offered a reasonable proportion, or even anything above about a third or more of his outstanding wages for the outstanding contract time.

If Alfredo di Catlaogplaya is on £50k and can get away with an offer of £15-20k and go and play for someone else, or even just go home, he'll almost certainly jump at the chance.

Not obvious at all, yep if someone could get a payout of 15-20k and could find another club who would pay them then perhaps but to go home to nothing, I would stay and fight it out. I would anticipate that 25-50k is a lot of money to an early 20year old aspiring footballer and the chance of another year's experience of being coached/trained and still making it in England would be a big draw.

 

I would anticipate most of the early 20 year olds speak sufficient English to at least get by and France, Sweden and Portugal are only a puddle jump away by plane. We'll see what happens.

From what I have heard, his career is over so why kick a man while he's down.
