Been a decent keeper at our level and a fantastic 'servant' to the club. Nice guy in the real world too, best wishes for the future.

Yep, wonder where he could have got to without running into chaos.

Good keeper for us and seemingly a decent human being who has done his best to the wrongs he caused.

Good luck to him,probably best decision for all concerned. Must confess to not being as sold on Matthews as others but 'tis a game of many different opinions, it'll be interesting to see who the long term custodian is.

Matthews was outstanding early on in the loan. He has shown he’s human on a few occasions since though and there have been a couple of moments to raise a concerned eyebrow. He’d be a good permanent signing for league 1.  But if the miracle were to happen and we went up, then we ought to be looking at keepers at the very least of the Remi standard, if not better.

Played very well today-he does seem to be very good in one on one situations. Think he needs to become much more commanding on crosses but maybe I'm being a bit harsh on someone who is still a young and inexperienced keeper.

He's exacty the sort of player we should be going for, any established CCC keeper worth his salt would be taking too much wage for Brent and looking to tick his contract down whilst living in a nice place. From what I've seen of Matthews I think he could raise his game. Same as Adams I said at the time we signed him up when Colin Lee and co were being touted, get somebody in who wants to prove themselves, young and motivated. In fact I'd rather we had that policy like Posh have, sign, train and improve youngsters instead of gambling on crocked and injured players hoping they will stay fit. You need the experience of the likes of Carey, Bradley (who is struggling foreshore) but you need young legs and a bit of testosterone. Give yoof a chance.

Absolutely, he is yeah. I’ve spoken to him a few times both pre and post the incident. He is a really good guy who obviously make a big mistake.

Whatever the future holds, I wish him the best.

Give it a rest. Who made you judge, jury and executioner?

I can’t stand outrage for outrage sake.

Have said this elsewhere today but there for the grace of god we all go.
Nobody condones drink driving whatsover but very few here can honestly say that not once in their driving lives have they not been over the limit even once ?? Because thats all it takes

I dont think he was dealt with lightly he got the average sentence for the crime. The fact that the law allows subsequently remission parole etc etc is not Lukes fault.

Should not of been re-signed in the first place. Had good displays in his first stint but like most re-signings they fail to deliver the same level. Onwards and possibly upwards, without Brent and his traveling circus.
