The final insult from Evans is taking players that his predecessor signed, for free.

Congratulations to Rhys in going to a Div 1 side he deserves it for the service he has given us. With a slap in the face by DF what do fans really expect. It is not my favourite choice , he could have done better for himself. The lad does have to bring in a wage?

Spoke to Bennett three weeks ago, he said he preferred new manager to Evans. Joke it is all about money again. Who next ?

I always got the impression that Evans didn't particularly rate Bennett. He was bombed out for Mirfin and Diamond and only got a look in again after injuries/suspension, after which he cemented his place in the team. I suppose he's free to join whoever he wants but I'd imagine Evans will be offering a good whack of somebody else's money for him to sign so early on in the season.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

This stinks. Steve Evans started off not being a big fan of Rhys Bennett and Krystian Pearce and insisted on signing Zander Diamond and David Mirfin who we did not really need. The money would have been better invested in our midfield and strikers. Steve Evans then agrees to Krystian Pearce and Mal Benning signing new deals but not Rhys Bennett at a time when he probably knew he was going to leave the Stags.

However Rhys leaving is our own fault because we should have sorted out a new contract for him in January. The longer you leave it then the more likely it is that players are going to be tapped up by someone else.

I literally can't make head nor tail of this!! Clearly stated he wanted to leave but it's still a slap in the face from DF??

Hurts a little that he’s gone there for free. I’m guessing we didn’t have an option or we’d be holding out for a fee. Very little we can do in this instance, we’re always going to have to fight to keep better players and without contract options the players have the power. Rhys has done well for us, good luck to him.

Not bothered in the slightest. Think Bennett is vastly over-rated by the majority of our fan base.

In my opinion, an average L2 defender who isn't L1 level.

We'll move on and get our day eventually.

Disappointed to lose Rhys, very disappointed that he's chosen to bunk to Peterborough and the fibmeister general, more disappointed that we've made sod all out of it. But this was surer than a left vol au vent at a leaving party once Rhys was revealed as being released.

Opinions. I thought he was the only player likely to go on and play consistently at a higher level

Wonder if he will be as cuffed when Evans is ripping him a new one after his first concentration lapse.
