Not sure what sort of better deal he must have lined up at his age etc.

Could be a variety of reasons terms couldn’t be agreed, none of which we’re privy to. He may have wanted to play regularly and GW doesn’t see him as a first team player. He could then have asked for more money if he wasn’t going to be a first team player to compensate for less playing time. We may simply have offered him less money than he has been on for the same role.

Best of luck to him, his message to the fans on the website is a nice touch too. Hope he finds regular football somewhere else and a deal that suits him.

Or Ebbsfleet got in touch with him and we wouldn't offer him as much as they were?

It was probably just the massive unbridgeable gap between what the club thought he was worth, and what he did. I wish him well for the future.

Regardless of the real ins and outs of it, on paper we are signing Conference cast-offs and getting outbid by Conference relegation candidates for our own players.

Is it as black and white as that?

I'd have thought we offered Timlin terms that both reflected his role within the squad and what we felt was a fair wage for his services. If Ebbsfleet came in with shit-or-bust money and/or guaranteed him a starting place for as long as his legs work, then fair play to them.

Outbid? Not for me Clive.

I imagine our offer was he had to pay us if he wanted to play.

If they offered more money that means they outbid us and if we weren't going to play him there was no point offering.

Unless you know what the terms on offer from both sides were then you’re assuming we got outbid. Could be that we were, could be that we weren’t but Ebbsfleet are offering first team football and we weren’t.

So then we're trying to invest cash money in players we don't intend to actually pick whilst we have a bloated squad.

If they’re bloated then that may explain why we’re 23rd in the league.

I'm guessing we only offered a half season. He'd want one and a half I guess, some security.

I'd expect to see him at Yeovil or similar soon.

Not good enough for L2 football IMO but a grafter, seemed a nice enough bloke and by all accounts a popular squad member.

Get the impression that he’s a good pro regardless of how he has performed on the pitch. A wise head to have around the place. GW prefers to work with established players or at least has shown a preference for it in the past.

Didn’t realise he was only under contract until Jan. Grateful for his efforts while here if so and wish him well for the future. Not a huge loss on the pitch however.

Seems confident he can get a better deal elsewhere. I won't mock since Mark Hughes ended up playing a level above us.
