Would love that. Just don't see how it would be financially viable. 

The money saved on those for alone is more then enough to cover Wickham and windass wages,

£10m? I doubt that. Believed to be on 30kpw, that's circa £6m over 4yrs. He leads by example, and scored into double-figures in 3 of his 4 seasons. Were it not for knee injury 2nd season, he would have probably done so that year too. You can blame Chansiri for putting his bumper contract on the table if ya like, but you can't blame Fletcher for taking it. He has served us well, but that doesn't automatically mean we should continue with him. 

He was never quite worth the contract he got but getting players at a Premium club to come into the Championship is notoriously difficult. His scoring record previously was not impressive.

Trevor Francis brought himself on during a game, turned the game around then subbed himself off.

As a player manager, it can't get any better than that! 😆

Doubt Fletcher would have scored in the last match

 

There was zero service to the front two

 

Was our goal disallowed retrospectively then?

Connor Wickham would have scored it - as he did


I'm talking about the rest of the game


Watch it again - nothing from the wingers at all and no through balls from midfield to note.

Not enough to get us firing goals in anyway

Sorry, I must have misunderstood the word 'zero'.

We need to be slashing the wage bill though, not just spending the same amount on somebody else.

Fletch has been a mercenary at all his clubs and even for the national squad. His actions here do not surprise me one bit.

 

However he still has quality and would have loved for him to stay. But it’s not meant to be and will certainly reduce the wage bill. Replacing him however...

As much as Fletcher has won me over, in terms of his all round ability, his presence makes it easier to revert to hit and hope balls. Not really his fault, it’s more likely to be the managers tactics, or even laziness on the part of the players themselves. Hopefully we can replace him with a more mobile option, who might encourage the manager to play a different way
