Well, AWG, I see no prospect of Eisa remaining, in any circumstance.
I thought Rory was still under contract. Pardon me if I’m wrong about that. Rory is an improved keeper, in any case.
Buying up contracts to get rid of players will gut an already reduced budget. Consequently, I have only suggested it in one obvious instance.
Just spotted that I put Rowe in twice! Sorry there, y’all.
The thinking is that high wages combined with regular injuries is a highly debilitating combination.
This squad lacks class and having a chunk of our class on the treatment table is inadvisable.
Eisa will be a loss for those 40 – 50% games in which he makes any kind of difference. Do I want to pay megabucks to keep him? – Not really. A player who varies between a 4 and an 8 is not necessarily a better option than one who is a 6.5 week in, week out.
Gilliead is proven class without a bad record for injuries. He is the only player on the books worth breaking budgets for.
We are stuck to an extent with the squad we have. I do not think sufficient change can happen to realistically alter (SI)the fact that we will be a lower bottom half side next year.
If the signings made are decent, we may not struggle but don’t expect things to suddenly improve (SI) to any great degree.
The season after – maybe. Provided we are still in L2.
