Sean Clare future in doubt

Recommended Posts

Another thick, greedy kid who thinks he's gonna be playing for Man City next season after a couple of games in the championship. Good riddance.

How come this doesn't happen to the pigs youngsters?

The club should tell Sean Flair and his representatives that the contract on the table will not be improved, it will also be removed on Monday 7th May, should he not sign before this date he will be released and free to find another club.

 

Clubs have wage structures for a reason, if he signs, performs well becomes a first team regular get round the table and negotiate better terms, as things stand he’s a good prospect nothing more.

 

He is nowhere near as good as he thinks he is #SeanFlair :picnic:

So, anyone refusing to sign new deal with the club is thick and gready ?

London lad who probably wants to go home is how I read the situation .....he's obviously got summat in the pipeline and if that gets him back to his home town then you cant really blame him for leaving ....if I was a gambling man id' be looking at QPR  as where he'll end up .

What better , paying a little more in wages to make sure we keep hold of our best young prospects . or wasting £30k a week on old, injury prone crocks. ?  

Never a truer word said. "Don't let us be held to ransom blah blah". Football has moved on. Seems we and lots of people on here haven't. 

 

Young players with great potential have agents and are rewarded accordingly with big contracts to tie them down in the hope of maturing them into stars who then can be sold on with great profit.  See Southampton who have made fortunes from their academy.

 

Other than the Vardy situation name me any player SWFC have produced (who has the footballing pedigree of being the offspring of one of our last international players) who has the potential of Hirst,winning golden boot awards at junior Intl tournaments against the best European players of his age?

 

Pay him half of the wages of Rhodes with a guaranteed first team squad place week on week and release clause at 5m and he'll sign.  10k p/w for Clare.

 

Then get Rhodes, Fletcher, Abdi, Jones on the first bus to the knackers yard .

 

Happy 150 anniversary Wednesday. Lose 2 of your brightest talents so our fans don't moan about being held to ransom.

 

Same fans happy to still get behind the biggest waste of 10m quid ever.

Is it really worth bothering having an academy?

 

SWFC pays good money in pay, accommodation, facilities, coaches, physio's, etc. with little return. When a couple of prospects do come along their only interested is the pay from being a Prem U23, irrespective of any chance of actually playing competitive football, and we get a token "compensation" payment in return for 10 years of investment.

 

If the Prem want a steady feed of new recruits they should be made to pay for it.

 

 

This is the very reason Huddersfield have dumped their academy.

More will follow!

Over a barrel in both cases. Agree we should look to keep him but if he goes as part of a summer clear out then that’s football. Obviously won’t have been that bothered about being here. We have a legacy of paying over the odds for bobbar and are now reaping what we have sown

There are players like Chris Marsden, who tore up his contract when he couldn't carry on anymore so as not to be a drain on the club.

 

Then there are players like Sean Clare who show no loyalty or gratefulness to the club who have invested in his career.

 

Good riddance.

What a load of rubbish.. There will be a bucket collection for us to stay in existence if you were the chairman.. You know when the youth players wages rise, the 1st team want their wages increasing

Good luck if Sean Clare takes best contract offer he gets from Wednesday or another club.

Hasn't done anything wrong IMO and don't blame him.

I get the feeling he wants to go down South, wouldn't be surprised if he went back to Gillingham

I saw him against derby & villa, he was very good then

 

the other games? can't answer that but no shock that a young lad playing in championship is inconsistent, the 2 games I'm referring to show he has talent & someone I'd like to see stay but he won't

he was linked with spurs a month or so ago, he'd walk into a lot of champ squads

Clare's an odd one.

Realistically, if he doesn't sign for us, what's he going to do?

He can probably cut it at this level, from what we've seen.

But how many championship clubs are really going to slash out on him after 4 games in the championship?

He'd started to break into the starting lineup here, and would no question be in the first team squad next season.

His likely alternative looks like going back to Gillingham or something, which means dropping a league and spending a few years in mid-table nothingness, instead of pushing for promotion to the prem with us.

 

Seems a very simple decision to me. It's not like the Hirst situation where he has a host of Premier League clubs trying to get him on the books. At teh end of the day, if Clare really wants to go to Gillingham, then it's his career to waste.

Personally Im not as bothered about Clare as I am about Hirst due to the club links etc. and the fact that theres a chance he could have been the striker to help us into the promised land.

 

Real shame.
