Semedo would be given a contract because he's clearly a good influence around the dressing room. That's it. 

 

Thats not a reason to give him a contract.

 

Are people at work hired/retained on this basis?  

 

The money should be used towards getting the right players in who will help us get promoted.

Yes it is. There is much more to a team than individual talent, there has to be other qualities. I'd keep Semedo if his presence is an integral part of the team. 

 

His wages is a drop in the ocean and doesn't mean we won't be spending on someone better......albeit we already have better. Pointless comparing to "work".

Are a bunch of professional football players on a high wages that reliant on having Semedo in the squad to keep morale up? 

 

I think this gets somewhat overplayed, especially on here.   

 

He is only 32 and still has a lot to offer in the pitch to a L1/lower champ side - a much better use of his abilities

 

As for your last point, do you run a business?

Maybe if Rotherham had employed the Chuckle Brothers on contracts they would have stayed up based on this way of thinking. Jose has to move on if he himself has any ambition to play regularly over the last year or two of his career.

Semedo has lots of opportunities locally where he would be a deffo starter

His time is up with us, gotta face facts, he not getting younger needs to leave us refocus and maybe come back in coaching capacity

or being brutal he knows a pro footballers life is gypsified as in have boots will travel, get the £££s whilst he can

Love the guy but time to move him on and let him finish out his career with another club.  In the future would love him back in a coaching capacity.

He's the reason why they won last night..

 

Apparently Real Madrid had him with the squad before the game - he helped boost their morale

All this stuff about him being good to have around the dressing room and good for morale, what exactly is he doing?  Balloon animals? Karaoke? Free blowies? 

 

Being a nice bloke is no justification for a wage and more importantly, a place on the bench that could go to somebody who's actually good enough to play.

 

Glorified cheerleader who should have left 2 or 3 years ago,  go and play football whilst you still can.

That is a bit strong imo. The moral benefit has been a bonus in the last few years. He  served a purpose on the pitch also and been of more benefit there than some of our other squad players.
