    Right, ok.

    Seems bizarre tho that it's a team bonding exercise and what could be seen as key 1st players are left behind in a 1 week bomb squad.

    Unless ones Mrs is due to good be birth and been excused..... scenarios like that

    Seems strange.

    He didn't kick off just commented to somebody that Chris was a bit grumpy about it.

    Both of them are massive city fans I have sat with Chris at away games where he has travelled with his mates

    Without wishing to look like I'm ducking the question I can't remember as I saw it earlier this morning but fell asleep after as I'm on nights.

    Turning it around it's good that he wants to be around the first team and trying to play rather than sitting back and chilling on his new contract

    If my work had arranged a jolly to Spain and I wasn't included I'd be pissed off as well

    It's understandable that he's annoyed considering this has happened just after he's signed a new contract. But surely it's expected. Why would you take 3 left backs to a pre-season tour when space is already obviously limited....

    It could have been, but the image in the background of the 87' final and the machine itself is two things you find at Ryton Lodge.

    While I am sure Chris has a very good future ahead of him, he is behind Haynes and Stokes, who are more experienced, more likely to be ahead of CC in the pecking order and are better players than CC (at this point in his career).

    CC like the other 18's now need to prove themselves, in training, in the 23's and then force their way through to the first team, not just expect to be gifted a berth.

    Maybe it was Bakers Dad who gave the story to Mr Gilbert at the CT.

    I don't think the poor kid has ever really shaken off his original injury
    Hope he has a change of luck soon

    He's still learning his trade and only had one first team start so is an under 23 player really. A quick lesson for him don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    It's still on the Coventry City fans forum Facebook page but Nigel Camwell has removed his comments.

    I think the majority of us would prefer to see the back of Reid, Harries I rate highly but I'm guessing there's some real interest in him from higher league teams. As for Turnbull, do we really need him anymore?

    The touring squad is a indication of what MR is looking at for now, the contracted ones that are going are firmly in Robins plans, if Camwell is upset or unhappy about getting left at home it shows he knows he is on the outside looking in. Young kid learning his trade will have to show the boss how he handles it and how he bounces back from this, its good to see that he is upset and shows he wants to play a part with the club at 1st team level. Good on him, but now its time to shut up, head down and show all those within the squad that he is good enough to be involved every week.

    I would seriously prefer this story then him not involved but seen rolling round town every week pissed out his head and acting like a dog with two cocks. But i suppose some want to see the negative in a story and part it on him or his dad, seems to be the fashion at the moment.

    Maybe George Thomas has signed for another club and loaned back to Sky Blues, as Maddison did when sold to Norwich ?

    Why bizarre? Seems like a good way to make sure he isn't inveigled away.

    Forgetting names on the list it just makes me chuckle all these footballers careers in some cases come down to whether their name is the notice board!

    Reminds me of school when teachers used to leave the football team match details and the team on a notice board

    Kwame is almost certainly injured
    He was developing well and I believe Robins rates him
