Think you can say Westwood, Palmer and believe it or not Boyd may get new deals think the rest will be let go.

 

(Based on what we have seen from Bruce's selections so far.)

 

whilst Boyd wasnt given much of a chance by CC and Jos  if I'm honest I don't see what he gives to the team  certainly saturday I'dve hooked him  off much earlier

Bruce might think differently though. He is a big fan of old been there, done that pros.

Think Boyd more a case of now he’s fit enough to play. 

I bet Joey n Cameron wished Jos still here. 

No coincidence Westwood n Hutch are back int side and get 7 clean sheets from 11. 

 

From what Boyd offers with wage he will be on he needs to go. 

Him Abdi n Jones will be massive saving.

Why would we keep boyd, hes expensive and offers nowt? Why on earth sign him up again. Makes no sense to me.

 

PS. This should have been in response to the previous post, not yours. Sorry

Cant wait for the clearout myself. Will be like sorting the loft out and getting rid of all that stuff just taking up space. Get rid.

If it’s anything like me sorting out stuff, most of it goes back in the cupboard

I think it will depend on who is available on a free

 

I would imagine Bruce will only resign the 3 players you've mentioned if he cannot find better

 

And players like Westwood may find better offers elsewhere

 

It's going to be an interesting summer

Think the club probably has a vague idea about the sort of situation we will be in in the summer with FFP. And I think we will see a lot of players given new contracts early just in case we are in a situation where we can't give any new player above a 10k wage limit. Or even offer existing players new deals above 10k. If that's how it works.

I think the opposite

 

The rules dictate we must be allowed 24 players

 

If Bruce is saying we have 27 players and he releases 14

 

Under the rules we will be allowed to sign 11 players

 

Whether we do release 14 to sign 11, will depend on whether Bruce can find 11 players better than the 14 we release

 

There will be changes, and plenty of them

 

If we don't make changes, we will not improve

May not be better than what we release. May be on less wages though. We need to get our finances in order, getting better may take longer

I think the big earners will definitely be released, I'm not sure about Westwood, he's a good keeper but misses a lot of games, I suppose it will come down to his wages

 

There's a case for keeping Palmer on his current form, I still maintain his final ball is awful, but I shouldn't think he's on high wages so it would make sense to keep him, but I'd be disappointed if he's first choice right back next season

 

Bruce has had a knack of spotting decent up and coming talent in the past, hopefully he can unearth a gem or two

 

It will be an interesting summer

We have 32 first team players, including the injured, and 27 isn’t too many more than the optimum 24-25. A bit bizarre from Bruce, unless he was misquoted

The rules may dictate that you have to be allowed 24 players so say he does release the lot and is allowed to bring in 11.

Then couldn't there also be a rule that says all them 11 players can earn no more than 10k a week?

 

We won't go down that route. whoever he wants to keep will sign contracts before the end of the season I am sure of it.

Trouble is our players are high earners, why offer them new contracts. Thats what caused the problem in the first place.

Every summer, for the past 20 years, someone on OT is demanding a total clearout

Expect at least 3 or 4 of the players to be offered new deals similar to what they are on now. We won't lose them all.

Thats one kind of clearout i guess. When was the last time we had a dozen or so players expiring at once though? 

 

Doesnt happen very often, its a blessing if you ask me looking at our wage bill and injury problems.

We always seem to have a few. 

 

I'm still kinda hoping Hooper & Lee can prove their fitness.

 

Realistically though, I agree that this maybe the year of the sh*tstorm
