With all due respect to the guy, he didn't get much of a chance. Now that could be because he didn't show too well in training.... I don't know, but I'd imagine it'll be a case of Thank you and goodbye.

At the end of the day, I have no problems with this loan signing---what was our record since he joined?? As Pride said he was not really given much of a chance but that could be due to the quality. Was obviously well liked by the lads and a positive dressing room may influence things more so than talent does (e.g. Man City). Thought PL showed class yesterday giving Simon a half hour run out in appreciation of his hard work these past few months. Good luck in the future lad!

When you consider our Christmas performances and results, he may well have got a few games under his belt if our form hadn't improved considerably in the new year. No harm no foul, he seems like a decent chap, good luck to him wherever he goes next.

I think he was just brought in to take the pressure of Sylla, I think fans had more expectations from Dawkins than Sylla, with him still being on Spurs books and playing in MLS which has more exposure than the French Ligue 2, although id say the talent pool is higher in french second tier than the MLS. Still fans could actually see videos of his performances, we did not have clue who we were getting Sylla, but he has shown he can be a good player.
