    Absolutely ridiculous.

    Down to Ashley being a tight arsehole and Bruce being a shite manager who would have said 'aye, these lads will be able to do a job'

    We'll be down to a team of O.A.P's before those contracts end. There will be a flurry of hunting around to try and place most of them at those wages they are on.

    Could the new owners pay off 75% of their contract for example and ask them to find another club?

    Or it might be that we let them go cheaply? They could all do a job at Chimpo clubs and I'm sure they would prefer to play.

    Hayden's been wanting to go back South for a few years now and I think Ritchie would jump at the chance too. Lacelles, Clark, Gayle and Darlow are all what you would class as 'decent pros' and would easily find a Chimpo club.

    Shelvey? maybe Howe's the man to get the best out of him.

    And Hendrick? Well, I'm sure there's a stately home somewhere that has a vacancy for a gnome stiitng by the pond, fishing.

    I'd like Shelvey to leave, I've been hugely disappointed with him ever since his arrival.

    Even if he improves a bit, I don't care much for his attitude.
