Just noticed Ben still hasn’t got a club. Whilst I didn’t want him back as he wouldn’t fit how NC is trying to play, I am surprised he hasn’t got fixed up. Alongside a mobile CB, eg Tilt he still has a lot to offer.

More to do with the salary cap creating excess players for squad positions available. He’s just unlucky to be out of contract at this time along with a lot of other players.

I agree, but I guess we don’t know why he hasn’t got a club. I’m inclined to wonder if he made a mistake or was badly advised to hold out earlier in pre season hoping for a championship move, then when that’s not happened, there is now a wage cap which might be a reality check as clubs have limited funds left to offer.

He's a free agent so could still get fixed up.
Not sure why he hasn't got a club already and he needs to or he'll soon be forgotten.

I like heneghan and would have had him back. Saying that I think Marv is steadily improving and I've always been a big husband fan.

Just on Ben though, I'm sure he was injured when NC took over. He was definitely injured against Bolton as was chatting to him in corporate that night.

My thoughts exactly. He is only 27 and as I said not for us, but could do a job still. A couple of seasons ago alongside Tilt he played well, just a bit slow.

Didn't someone say he was on a Premier League wage last season because Sheff Utd had been promoted the season before? So his salary expectations may have been higher than what most League One clubs can currently afford.

There will come a time when he realises, the same as a lot more lower league footballers will, that approx £500 a week is a hell of a lot better than nothing.

I'm sure he'll sign a contract eventually, he is more than good enough for League Two football, at least.

If we were going to sign him surely it would have been in the summer so we wouldn't have been forced into playing Nottingham

I'm not fussed either way would have been ok, but i never got the love in with him

Loads of mistakes in him and dodgy on the ball

Will end up in league 2

I didn't rate him as much as some on here, but when we were playing with Nottingham/Ekpiteta at the start of the season I was hoping we'd be in for him.

Too good for League Two IMO, think he'll end up in League One - though was perhaps holding out for higher (to his detriment).

Sunderland struggling with injuries at the back, including one just confirmed out for the season - I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up there.

I think Phil is spot on if he will accept league 2 wages...I see him at Tranmere, Bolton or Carlisle or somewhere like that. For me he wouldnt have fitted our system with his lack of pace and poor distribution. He is a decent pro and there should still be a career for him at League 2 level
