All The Very Best Nicky Weaver

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.

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.

Looks like Frank has place an embargo on the website until he takes control.

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

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??!!

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.
