It is always possible that he wanted to leave

He wanted to play I would say. Simple as that.
He's not getting any younger and the end of the window is looming. I'm sure he'll get fixed up.

Agree with all the comments re. Furman. Having signed Marriott and Osbourne, I can only imagine that PP saw Furman as surplus.

He has probably got a replacement lined up, maybe a younger, more defensive midfielder with the future in mind.

I haven’t seen a Grimsby match report from PP or have I missed it

He appears to be busy with his job as a co-commentator on the Africa Cup of Nations:

Wow, some really insightful posts on Dean's departure on here. I can only assume we have his agent, or perhaps a board member posting under a clever pseudonym.

How do you all know that this contract didn't suit Dean and his lifestyle? He is a player coming to the end of his career and runs his own business. How do you know that he has been fit to play the whole time? How do you know if he hasn't been to South Africa and back for work during this time?

You don't.

Anyway, good luck Dean. I really enjoyed seeing you play for us.

He has been on the bench for many games. I doubt he has managed to be in SA and on the bench for us at the same time.

Never given a fair chance. Assume he wants to be somewhere where he can just play. Hope we have someone on the way in.

I expect Parky will be telling them that just because we won down there we mustn't be complacent.
However if we go into it focused and are roared on by a good crowd, despite their improved form since we won there, I believe we can win this one.
Don't think we'll get a clean sheet sadly but I'd settle for the three points! 😎

Ffs surely they could have extended his stay until the end of the season.

Some decisions bewilder me sometimes

One minute we’re praising a bloke because he has signed for us and we’re singing his praises, next thing he is released, without (in my mind) getting a decent chance to show his usefulness.

Jake will be a certainty for tomorrow now.

Good luck Dean, I thought you were a decent player.



It's always interesting how people see games and players differently. Personally I thought Furman had a fair few chances and was never much good. Seemed to give the ball away a lot and put pressure on the defence. Would rather have had Sean Williams.

Agree on the hyperbole surrounding Furman's signing, maybe that inflated expectations. That is not Furmans fault btw, that was the clubs giddy marketing.

Hopefully frees up some of the budget to get a better player in.
