I respect his loyalty to the club and his desire to do his best in the shirt cannot be questioned by anyone. Showed flashes of excellence, tempered by his disciplinary record. In particular I remember a spin turn in the middle of the park in the FA Cup win away at Walsall that was a class above and took me a while to work out how he had created so much space for himself. Often felt he just needed to step up half a step, but couldn't quite manage it. Maybe higher up the pyramid he will have that bit more time fulfil his potential. I wish him and his family all the best, I genuinely hope it is the right move for him, and I would have been quite happy to have seen him stay; but I don't think his departure (or Hawkridge's for that matter) affects what we do this season.
