    The fee is undisclosed because it is less than zero. The official announcement of Atromitos says that he signed as free.

    Surprisingly really as, when you look at the Clough, Clark, Bassett, Hart, Davies & SOD teams, they're choca full of low budget Greek imports who have never done anything of note on British soil

    He should've, but was written off my Aitor for some reason unknown to us, especially with him having a mad decent pre season.

    I'm disappointed he never got the chance to really show what he could do but if the manager doesn't want you in the team you're never going to get that chance.

    4 managers & 1 caretaker manager didn't get much out if him. Happy enough to accept that as enough evidence he wasn't up to it.

    Call me cynical, but these footballers give two shits really, he's just leaving the door open & encouraging folk to look favourably on his time here.

    Thought he looked technically sound, piss poor work rate though & not much end product to speak of. Didn't do enough to push himself into first team contention.

    I honestly thought when Warburton didn't play him after that shit hot pre-season he had, he seemed to lose enthusiasm for it. He couldn't have done much more to get a run of games let's be honest.

    Football is mostly down to good timing.

    Correct. And sometimes both assessments of a player who didn't make it are both true, even if diametrically opposite. I think Vellios was not good enough, but indeed he also didn't get chances when he probably should have.

    He never gave off the 110% Osborn/Cohen type vibe but when it came to the actual games, when he was on the pitch, he seemed to want to score goals and made a deecent fist of it given the bizarrely infrequent opportunities he was given and the way he played well and was then dumped out the team the next game.
