Only players I'd be dissapointed in losing would be bannan, iorfa and borner. Rest can go for the right fee

Trouble is, whilst most on OT agree with that, there would be meltdown if we sold Iorfa and Bannan in January. 

"No ambition"

"You don't sell your best players if you want to progress"

"Settling for mediocrity".

We all know that we need to sell, but few can stomach it if/when it happens.


We had to put the Samaritans Hotline No. on when we sold Jack Hunt ffs.

Whether we need to sell Bannan and Iorfa etc depends what happens with ffp. If we do get a points deduction presumably the stadium money will go into the following year's accounts and make our finances look a lot healthier. Or maybe it doesn't work like that. Does anybody know?

We're in catch 22 mode. DC's strategy is simply to get into PL at all costs. 

 

If we're around the play offs come the turn of the year, it's unlikely any of the squad will be sold, unless Monk's team has a plan to replace them with better.

 

Of course Rhodes and Winnall do not appear to be in the club's plans and therefore, they could be released, but Rhodes in particular is going to see out his contract even if he's sat at home watching Jeff every Saturday. His career salary has peaked at us, and he'll be looking at a 50% cut when he leaves us. I'm sure Winnall's agent has got some club interested in him - Barnsley?

Dont panic dont panic are you corporal Jones from Dads Army ? There will be no firesale and DC doesn't do bargain deals. The summer will see a clearout with around 10 out of contract

I’d be careful having ‘fire sales’ while ever the EFL are deciding what to do with us, potential transfer windows bans meaning no chance of replacements would make a fire sale a bit daft 

 

Also fairly sure were still due to pay Boro rest of Rhodes transfer fee, sell him from nowt and it’ll be immediately repayable 

 

The only financial situation were in is with the EFL,  few taking this as the chairman’s stoney broke , I’d be surprised if that’s the case

Ye, I’d sell Reach if we had a decent offer as well. I wouldn’t sell Bannan or Iorfa tho if we received decent offers. Too important to us right now.

I'd sell Reach too, but we all, or many of us thought he'd go in the Summer. It didn't happen. January is a notoriously difficult month to sell, as prices are over inflated all over Europe.

Depends what the offer is, especially for Bannan he is 30 today so is going to start to decline, it would certainly be worth considering. 

we need to keep Bannan,Hutch,Iorfa,FF,and Harris for me,any offers for the rest...snatch their hands off ,imo

Said it before but Iorfa and Borner aside I’ll happily drop any of the others off at their new club providing the price is right 

 

genuinely tired of watching a few of these go through the motions every other week. It’s baby out with the bath water time

I don't think his contract is up until the following summer.

Better to get anything for the players who won't figure in the team and save wages than let them go for free in the summer

January giveaway more like.

 

Any fees received for the players in the OP will likely need to be set against loyalty payments we owe them

we have very few players with a saleable asset and they are mostly our new players. the old guard are on far more money than any other club would pay and they will be here till summer.

FF will go, along with Winnall.

If no decision has been made re the charge, can we afford to have a fire sale? Selling players who may still have a role to play, and then getting a points deduction, and a transfer ban, could be suicide
