Olly Lee was a lot younger than Watson is when he was with us and you could see that he had some ability. To me, the deficiencies in Watson’s game are so fundamental that I can’t ever see him being League 2 standard.

Errr..... he's played about 70 games in League 2. Paul Tisdale obviously sees a players there.


And he was at best mediocre in most of them. I’m pretty sure that Adam Gross played a similar number of matches in League 2 for us and no one ever claimed that he was League 2 standard!

So you're not a fan of him then? He may not make it at MK, but hopefully he will at least get the chance to show what he can do in a competitive midfield, rather than the shambles Bar net have had in recent seasons.

Ha, no not a fan.
What I am saying is that he is a big reason why we had a shambles of a midfield for most of last season and that his inclusion in any team's midfield would not help it to be competitive.

The reason the midfield was a shambles was because manager after manager had the curious notion we could play without a specialist ball-winning central midfielder. It was weak and lopsided.

Laughable that Watson has managed to sign for MK Dons. Boy they don't know what they are in for. Enjoy the long hoofs!

If you look at Slough's squad list, you can see the name of another ex-Bee who has recently joined Slough: Louie Soares.

Fascinating few tweets from the man about things we had no idea going on in the background.

This is what he said:

Delighted to have agreed terms for another season @OfficialClarets ⚽️. Big thanks to everyone associated with the club and especially @OfficialCCSC for all the support I received last season. It’s been a transition for me leaving the pro game after 9yrs and getting back playing football again after 7 months out injured and I thank everyone for their patience last season through an extremely difficult time for me.

After many private sessions with an injury specialist I finally got myself back on the pitch and thoroughly enjoyed playing the rest of the season injury free and starting to feel like my normal self again. Looking forward to pushing myself this pre-season to get back to my very best and helping @OfficialClarets go one step further this time round. #unfinishedbusiness

I would also like to thank the @PFA for all their support also. I was down a dark path that would of only been far worse had it of not been for their help & guidance. After months of private work with a councillor addressing my many issues and poor lifestyle choices only now do I truly start to feel happy with myself and the life I am living after years of bad decisions. Alongside the stress of it which I clearly struggled to deal with culminating in the loss of my hair through alopecia in multiple places.

Happy to finally say I have come out the other side, no longer hiding my problems with fake smiles, I’ve got good people around me, a steady job I’m enjoying the challenges of, further educating myself in my spare time, a loving family life and I’m back playing the sport I love with freedom ❤️. #lifeisgoodagain

Good luck to the guy, sounds like he's had it tough.

KMB had the potential to move up the leagues but has always been a bit of a tit.
