And I disagree with it. I felt him to be disruptive to the squad.

K and D 
I agree with you .I think 3 clubs in 3 years tells a story (4 in 4 if you count London Welsh but that was a different story!)
When we last played Leeds he was not a starter which on his reputed wages is very surprising and perhaps is significant as to his value as a team player.
Of course it could be that Leeds could no longer  afford to pay him

I suspect it's not so much a question of could not afford as using the player's opportunity to move as a chance to save a few quid. Every little helps at the moment!
That's easy for you to say.

I think he spent two years with Welsh, and he left us about 18 months before we went under - so I don't think it is a different story.
To be honest, I don't remember his time with us - we had so many players come and go during that three year period of promotions and relegations that it's impossible to keep track of them all!

He might not have fitted, in your opinions, but you cannot detract from the fact that Ollie was a good player for us and no doubt will be for Ealing. He is a powerhouse and could potentially be the successor for Mr Bright.

And I quote verbatim "Probably lining him up to replace Mark Bright" is my only post on said topic - and I am sure you haven't got the wrong man either sir Wink but we are all entitled to our own opinions, and not sure I would be able to comment on his attitude in the dressing room etc. but on pitch he seemed pretty determined.

Anyhow, we have better than him in our squad currently imho

In our best season in reaching the play off final Ollie was part of that team, they always looked cohesive as a team, played for each other I certainly didnt detect any unrest from the sidelines. Mind you Im not privy to changing room chat.

Sam Dickinson signed for Ealing - he’s ex Rotherham, and our sponsored player while he was there, then went to Northampton, made it to the England Saxons squad and they decided this year he wasn’t what they wanted anymore. A fantastic player, always gives everything and can play back row or second row. It will be good to see him playing again, but I wish he’d waited until after our visit in a couple of weeks. This just makes it even more difficult! Or even impossible.
