I’ll pay the fee. I’ve got a quid here. Be worth it just to stop watching him mascaraed as a professional footballer.  

Walsall are also a professional football club so the masquerade would continue.

Looks like the Rodney project hasn't worked out, but I don't think anyone at the club is to blame. Perhaps Devante himself hasn't got the mentality to get the best out of his talents.

Tend to agree, think he is the uncut diamond that can never be polished.

Somebody on the Walsall forum claiming that he was told on good authority at today's game, that Devante Rodney had signed for Walsall this morning, and would be officially announced on Monday!

hope so!😁

People wont agree but for me the club had banked on Gibbo being sold this month,now that wont happen,i really feel sorry for Gibbo(whats this the 3rd time in a year or so he has done hamstrings?) because i doubt now bigger clubs will take a gamble on his hamstrings,also will vale take the gamble as well....got to feel for the lad

Not good at all,  a recurring hamstring injury, he must now  await for a specialist report on the possibilities, whilst Conlon weighs up his own options.

I think some of the comments ,on this thread,re Devante Rodney, are bloody disgraceful.

I totally agree. And I think a huge number of comments made on this site about former players are dreadful and totally unnecessary.

Dunno what went wrong for Rodney but he can be a mid-table League 2 winger/wide forward, for sure. He showed that last season.

It hasn't worked at all since Clarke came in but there was a spell last season where he was the lone spark in a very poor outfit. He'll never be a lone striker but as a left winger he could certainly contribute. Walsall is a reasonable move for him imo.

I understand selling him entirely, but I also aren't as glad to see him go (if he departs) as others. It leaves us with a massive week in terms of needing attacking reinforcements.

Signing for them tomorrow apparently. 

Was decent last season but has been atrocious this season. No quality what so ever but what’s been more frustrating is the complete lack of effort he’s been putting in.

Another player out, and someone I think we were right to move on, He’s had more than a decent go of it and to be honest he looks worse than when we signed him. still think he’s a league 2 player and on his day scores some decent goals but he’s not a striker and hasn’t had any positive impact at all this season. 
Hopefully we have some signings this week.

Is he injured though? His injury didn’t look that bad when he went off against Bristol. I’m not sure we will miss striker who’s not scored this season or let’s be honest contributed at all. I mean it was un called for, but he was getting booed in home games before his injury. If we played him out wide then maybe he would be useful, but we don’t play wingers. 

Ideal situation for me is that Rodney goes and walsall pay a fee and we have someone lined up to replace him as our squad is threadbare. 

He’s had chances this season. He had time to prove himself with Wilson and Proctor out and didn’t.
