Just seen this from Luke

To everyone involved with Exeter City FC, thank you! Although my time here wasn’t what I had hoped it would be, It was an honour to be a part of your amazing club. I’ve made lifetime memories with my closest friends and for that alone, I’m in debt to you. Please never change.. Wishing you nothing but success in the future

Shame, there was clearly a decent player in there somewhere (he was masterful at Fulham, for example), but it never quite materialised for him.

Best of luck wherever (likely in non-league) he ends up.

That's a generous farewell. One or two of our ex-players could learn something from him. Good luck to the lad in the future.

Farewell to Luke. I will remember the great performance away at Colchester where Luke and a very young Ampadu ran the show that day. Shame it did not work out for him at City

I think it means the manager is having meetings with out of contract players to tell them his plans (if any) for them.

Best done in person, but a horrible task.
Usually both sides knows what's coming so it's not too horrible but occasionally it comes as a surprise, as famously happened with Gazza before the 1998 World Cup or in this classic bit of tv.

Seems like a nice enough lad however as a footballer he lacked aggression, anticipation and belief.

Theres a player in there somewhere, we sure as ***** didn't see very much of it though. He might need to have a go in the conference for a bit to see if he can cut it there.

If you could get 15+ consecutive games out of him, then you might just see what he's capable of doing. Not sure how far he's along getting and staying fit.
