All the talk is about players out of contract and released young ens but
Monk may have plans to transfer/release/sell others too who doesn’t want or don’t fit his plans or maybe are part of the problems in camp (bad eggs)
Westwood obv not in plans (if not gonna play get rid. Save big wage)
Lees seems like not fancied (I’d try n sell n get better)
Van Aken (has monk ever seen him)
Reach ( doesn’t seem first choice any more. Maybe will try cash in on him)
Rhodes (prob try get him off wage bill as if KW goes prob be highest paid at club and hardly plays)
Moses (obv had some sort of problems with him previous)
We have the loan players....
Wickham (highly doubt sign him n cant afford him)
Murphy (presume newc would want too much for him)
Da Cruz (supposedly option you buy but depends if price right n monk fancies him)
Bates (a gonna)
Jones (signed till end of season but doubt long term)
short term signings...
Nuhiu (may not be in long term plans)
Lee (as above)
going on all above we be left with....
Dawson n Wildsmith (for me Dawson not no1 n defo would need another keeper if KW n PJ go)
could be a pwappa pwappa clear out and we would need shed loads of players.
while can be exciting times it could be other way and a disaster.
mediocre players on mediocre wages (seems fit into new plans)
been said ‘young’ ‘hungry’ ‘dynamic’ or does that mean ‘unknown’ ‘cheap’ ‘no other option’
it does seem to be sounding like a must to lower wages etc and won’t be paying out for big named players again.
but the ‘whatever it takes’ and ‘want big names have pay big ticket prices etc’ doesn’t seem to bode well when we still have the big tickets/shop prices.
yes big wages got us in the **** but we didn’t ask for them only got told we have to pay for the privilege then to be told our money doesn’t touch the sides.
club can’t have it both ways. That’s cheating.
