Out of contract


Recommended Posts

A lot of decent names (and wage demands) still not picked up with the start of the season looming.

 

Forestieri, Winnall, Lee, Nuhiu and Hutchinson haven't been taken as of yet.

 

Decent Championship players like Tom Huddleston, Daniel Ayala, Chris Brunt, Nathan Dyer, Ikechi Anya etc.

 

Its the market realization at the minute of who blinks first - do players go without a job/wage and not play or do they take a short term contract and pay cut from what they are used to. Or will clubs pony up the demanded wages whilst seemingly trying to cut their cloth with little income around.

 

This is why free, good strikers are at a premium and they will knowingly wait for a good deal and play clubs off of each other.

 

However if we take players after the start of the season they always play catch up with fitness/sharpness (see Wickham).

So other players in other roles dont do this? There are a lot of other players besides these available on a free.

No one is going to pay a premium in wages for players on the downward slope of their careers like Huddlestone or Brunt.

Yep. Some of those mentioned arent worth a one month deal nevermind more. Derby pals of mine say Anya is their Abdi
