    I feel like I need some those cardboard 3D glasses you used to get as a kid to read this properly.

    Supposedly King and Sissoko have relegation break clauses in their contracts

    Can't wait to see the reaction when Gray scores against us next season...

    Can't see King getting another club in the Premier League if he enforced that. Sissoko probably would find another club

    I agree that King has done very little to get an EPL club interested, but one of the newly promoted clubs, or Palace/Brighton would probably take him as a squad player. I can see Sissoko going to a club like Fulham.

    That would be excellent for us.

    That’d be lovely. I imagine they’re both on fat wages and King really couldn’t be arsed in the Championship with muff, so would only be a drain on resources.

    I was pretty excited when King first joined. Take his hat-trick against Manure away and his odd goal and hold up play, he has just been a more competent Gray. Problem is, at this level we needed something more. But as he was cheap and we needed a replacement for Deeney and Gray, we got King and Fletcher. Sheesh.

    Agreed King looked like a reasonable addition to the squad, but in reality he has been less effective than TD or Gray.
    His hat-trick was actually against Everton - as he wanted to show them what a good player he was and that they were wrong not to play him last season!
    Take out that 90mins and he has played 1907mins for us contributing 1 goal and 3 assists from open play (plus 1 penalty)
    Since that open play goal in the 4-1 win over Man Utd he has played 1331mins and contributed 1 assist.
    He will not be missed if he leaves in the summer.

    If true then thank god for that (with King certainly).

    Is there an option to get rid of them all and start again? Would love to see some academy players come through next year in the academy. Think we need to start flooding through some of the youngsters because that is how we are going to start achieving again!

    Most of them aren’t that good really - the ones that are left .

    We get beaten most weeks .

    Apparently some Watford players were chatting to fans somewhere after the game .

    Masina as we know said he was off whilst Cathcart/Gosling suggested they were staying.

    All hearsay and conjecture probably at this stage .

    Gone, finally
     
  27. Markoa$

    Markoa$ Squad Player

    Foster, N’Koulou, Gray, Etebo and Kucka all gone. How much are we saving on wages there?

    If I had to guess;

    Fozzy, the absolute Legend - £40k p/w
    N’Koulou - £20k p/w
    Gray - £70k p/w
    Etebo - £20k p/w
    Kucka - £30k p/w

    Probably somewhere around £180k p/w for those 5 I reckon. About £9.3mil a year we’ve just shaved off.

    Now just need to get, Kiko, Masina, Ekong, definitely Ekong (easily the worst CB at the club), Sissoko, Samir (if it’s true he wants out), Dennis, Sarr and King, all out of the club.

    edit: And Rose, forgot about him

    Plus whatever we were paying Deeney as I doubt he just walked away from his final year of his last lucrative contract and we probably didn't have enough money to pay it off in one lump sum.

    Etebo would have been on a big whack if we were covering all his wages.

    2023 could be a very busy summer for turn over of players if some of those aren’t gone by then .

    Zinckernagel is a classic example of handing out too long a contract.

    Sent out on loan within 6 months and now potentially going to be sold for very little .
