Looks like a holding midfielder/ball winner which we certainly need to sure up the defence. We could do with a couple of attacking midfielders in addition as I agree with posts on other threads that we are seriously missing Bauress and Owens quality.

Just a small point but I don't think Freddy has played for any of Chelsea or Tottenham's senior teams but after some research I see that he did play for Spurs under 18's. Many thousands of players have had trials at both clubs and the message is a bit misleading. If we had signed Bale or Modric I would have agreed we had signed a former Spurs midfielder. I must be getting old but this is just a bit of a pet hate of mine.

Anyway welcome Freddy UTA.

Welcome Freddie, let's hope he can do those skills when a 6ft non league clogger is on Him ! We certainly need quality players so let's hope he can make the step up from AFC Liverpool. UTA

What even is the situation with Freddie? Not even seen him once at a game or even on the bench.

Exactly my point big build up then nothing. Fans are kept totally in the dark. If it's not happening then let the fans know, surely.

we don't need a meeting on it. Just try asking the manager when you next see him. He will answer you if you speak to him!

Totally not the point, if the club officially announce a signing and then it doesn't happen they should at the very least offer some sort of explanation. It's called good PR don't you think???

We're mid table had a fantastic season last year and had a few bad weeks.
Yet we are talking about a meeting with Carl.
Seriously am I reading this right.
This is the man who cane in two years ago and turned us around.
At times as a Wittoner I feel frustrated I really do

Think you're missing the point Charlie.

I would have taken 10th at this stage in the season any day of the week and I back Carl and the club 110% and always will. We are just about where we should be currently IMO. But........to say we have signed a former Spurs, Chelsea and QPR midfielder (very questionable statement with somewhat random supporting video on this website above to boot) and not to have heard a word about "Freddy" or his whereabouts since said announcement is incredibly bad PR by the club.

I have to say our PR is not as good as another local team. We need to step it up big time if we want to stay ahead of them especially as the local press are very much in their court. We should be sending reports to them every day of the things going on at Witton because I know there is a lot going on behind the scenes.

I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

The information at the time was relayed to me from the club so I acted upon it. What has happened since I have no knowledge of.
