12 o'clock Friday night was allegedly the cut off point for agreeing new deals

Shame if he does go but we move on, nobody's bigger than the club. Hope he goes out with a bang.

I agree, to be fair with his "commitment" this season he was fortunate to be offered a contract at all. PV knows what he's doing. 


Always have been always will be the pride of West Cumbria!

Maybe he is keeping his options open and waiting to see if Haven survive with no doubt a good contract on offer.
If that's his choice it's up to him, I'd rather see him in a Town shirt next season as he's a great player but I'm not about to start calling the lad if he wants to choose not to stay.
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

I'd rather he stays but if he wants more than this year it's a bit of a cheek. He needs to be careful as if Town withdraw their offer and Haven offer less he's going to end up worse off.

If you go off what happened in 2010 haven would probably raise their offer if Town withdrew theirs!

Good luck to him. If he can get the money from haven that he tried to get from town then you can't blame him from going. Karl's a top quality player but there's always that doubt with him. We've got to back towns decision on this one as they offered what they thought olstrum was worth but he's obviously had a better offer elsewhere. If he's the only one were losing then we've done brilliantly keeping the likes of stack,Phillips,mcavoy and even Elliot.

Might not be money driven mind......it might simply be that he doesn't have as far to walk from the police station to the ground on a sunday morning :D

His choice . If he stays , ok . If he goes , like everyone else who does , say cheers and forget him . We always move on and we'll replace him with someone as good or better . With everything swirling round this season I tend to agree with the point that he's a tad lucky to be offered a contract, when there was rumoured to be at least one point when our patience had run out with him ... But if he wants to stay he'll stay , money is a smokescreen I'd say . If he wants to go. , he'll go . I have total faith in PV and he'll not let last offseason 's debacle happen

Speaking of last off-season who was the young fair haired forward who played against Egremont in the friendly? He looked handy so would like to see him around next year

Who does he play for ? Was he an amateur on trial ? I'm thinking with stack szostak b.philips Mcavoy and Shackley plus similar input from Farrell and a maybe Lupton moving to 13 to accommodate an incoming halfback we have plenty of cover in the pack if Olstrum leaves. I include shackley as I feel PV will bring in a prop or 2.

Shame if he goes, though he will leave with no ill feeling from me. He has been excellent for us, but also let us down a few times unfortunately. I have no problem with players chasing money to be honest, they dont earn massive amounts so its fair enough. good luck to him if he goes, though I would prefer he stays,

We want two proven , hardened props in that set up next year , preferably with a bit of football in them to give a few offloads . The packs are gonna be awesome without let up. But as we all say , we don't need to teach PV how to suck eggs.

Reading the comments of Paul Cooke in the League Weekly today he says that Jacob Miller is looking for a new club for next year but he wants a full-time role.   Just thinking if Stacky isn't going to be doing the community job here is a young talented half-back who could fill our playmaker role that PV is searching for!!!


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
