All The Very Best Nicky Weaver

After 10 loyal years Nicky Weaver is leaving City for The Addicks on a free. I am sure all Blues will join me in wishing Weaves all the luck in the world following his battle to fight back from career threatening injury and his loyalty to the cause.

Those penalty shoot out heroics at Wembley in 1999 against The Gills will live long in the memory and barring that rapid second promotion too soon under Joe Royle City certainly would not have stood a chance of becoming an established Premier League club without players like Weaver's contribution.

Good luck to you Nicky.

Absolutely, Alphie. He certainly gave his best for MCFC.
Johnny Baguette
I am sure he will do very well with Charlton, I am sorry to see him go, but he needs to be out there playing. He has come through injury and fought his way back into the first team and had he recovered a few months earlier, I do not think that SP would have bought Isaksson. Good luck Nick!

Do you know what saddens me more about this, is the fact that the official website are not the first to tell the fans. Anyone know why this is. Infact at the moment there is no mention of it. I assume whoever updates it looks at other websites first and then copies it onto the site.
Buzz Lightyear
Looks like Frank has place an embargo on the website until he takes control.
alphieblues
They do say no news is good news. lets hope so, we need to move quickly now, unless they already know who they want and have started negotiations already
Buzz Lightyear
serioulsy r they takin the ***** in there Nicky Weaver was brillant for us how cud they just get rid of him like that he was a brillant Goalkeeper and helped us out alot eg the playoff finals when we were in divison 2 if it wasn for him we would be still down there
dunne deal
As I understand it, there was a contract offer left on the table by Pearce that was frozen while the takeover saga carried on. Then somebody at the club withdrew any contract for Weaver advising him he had to impress the new manager. Surely that can't have been a decision made by SGE? I didn't see Weaver on any of the Carrington images and the way Pardew has talked about him suggests it wasn't an overnight decision. Who took the final decision on Weaver's contract??!!
Johnny Baguette
yes i no about that i read about it on teltext on sky sports news, but he shud of been kept he is known as a legend to me he is a great goalkeeper and we just give him away likw half of r players we shud have made a profit out of him at least
dunne deal
JB and DD i go back to the interview with Frankie, he let slip a goalkeeper, I thought he meant goal defender at the time, but he meant keeper, now Isaksson is under a contract, and one had to go, it had to be weaver or he wasn't confident enough that he would have got a contract under Svennis. To me Isaksson not much ahead of weaver but us younger and will learn. Still it is sad to see him leave like this. I hope that they do give him a testimonial and that when he is able he plays for us in the masters five a side.
Buzz Lightyear
he wud wana be playin for us otherwise there will be trouble ha ha
dunne deal
Ten years! That's some service! All the best Nicky!

the key person mentioned in this article is joe royle. after all he did for your club do you not think he deserved more loyalty from the club? if he was still in charge you may have been a european regular by now.

Good point Dales. I was always a big fan of JR and when we went down again after those unbelievable back to back promotions I was sad to see him go. There seemed to be an honest stability there when he was in the hot seat whereas the club has continued to pay for the board's sanctioning of the Mad Kev cash splashing rollercoaster to this day.
Johnny Baguette
WEAVER, IS A WEDNESDAYITE, WEAVER, IS A WEDNESDAYITE i wish him best of luck, apart from when we play charlton of course, and you lot can keep away from brunt :)
smiggyswfc
Reading between the lines I think its safe to assume that City should not be proud of the way this has been handled. Think Weaver must feel very sad about the way this has ended.

No need to do it in such a cold way. Good luck Nicky.
