What will we be left with?
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:24:47 PM »
Some will say it's too early but I really am resigned to relegation now, along with 80% who voted on another thread, so, what will we be left with come August?
I think Foster, Evans, Gibbs, Hegazi, Greg, Chadli, Phillips, Rondon, Rodriguez and Sturridge will all go which would leave us with:

Myhill
Nyom
Dawson
Gabr
Brunt
Morrison
Yacob
Barry
Field
Burke
Robson Kanu

Scary isn't it? Massive rebuild required.

If Rondon (£20m), Hegazi (£15m), Evans (£3m), Chadli (£18m), Foster (£5m), Gibbs (£10m), Rodriguez (£20m), Phillips (£10m) are all sold then thats more than £100m + parachute payments and 50% flex down in all remaining players contracts. Enought to finance a new championship winning team.

What people need to bear in mind is that players won't just simply leave, we've been in this position before and we dont have to sell in relegation happens. Players will only be sold if the deal is right and that means paying PL level transfer fees.

but maybe club should get rid as majority are not good enough, Foster would be the only one id like to keep

Still a massive ask though to rebuild on that scale and, if ffp is screwing us now, it will cripple us in the champ which means we may have to sell cheap just to clear the wage bill.

Can’t see Foster leaving, think he’s happy playing for us and living where he lives with his family. Not sure there is anyone who would come in for him who will tempt him.

Gibbs and Evans are nailed on to go, the others might not get the interest you’d expect.

Wolves, Leicester or Villa if they get up.

Doubt Foster would go to Wolves. Leicester have Schmeichel and Villa have Johnstone who they rate highly.

I think you're about the only person on here that understands this. We'll be fine if we go down, our club is not a basket case like Hull/Sunderland/Blackburn etc. We have zero debt. We will be one of the highest spenders in the Championship, we will be one of the big draws for good Championship players who are looking for a route to the PL and we will have a good starting base of players because there are only 3-4 in our current squad who will definitely not drop to Championship level. FFP won't affect us because our wage bill will drop significantly, and in any case FFP is not as stringent in the Championship as it is in the PL.

If we go down, the only reasons we won't come straight back up are if we have a poor manager or if our summer recruitment is poor.

Leicester won’t bother as they have Schmeichel, Villa will probably buy Johnstone after his loan and Wolves will presumably be looking at more Mendes clients.

Stoke almost certain to lose Butland. Foster will not play Championship football.

The current owner has spent everything he can up to the FFP wage limit so I don't think that is a fair comment, the fact it's been spent on ageing British dross as opposed to quality younger players from abroad is not his fault.

If Lai doesn't spend the parachute money to get us promoted then he's lost £100m from his investment, so I think he will do the maths.

Stoke could very well be in the Championship with us.

Foster will be 35 in the summer, I'm certain he will be with us regardless next season.

Ditch the manager and majority of playing staff and start over. So far we have won 3 league games. This proves they aren’t that great anyway.
Greg and Sturridge will go back to their teams.
I’d shift (if I could): Myhill, Yacob, McAuley, HRK, McLean, Livermore, Nyom, Rondon, Morrison.
I’d reluctantly get rid of (rather keep but maybe hard): Evans, Gibbs, Phillips, Chadli.
Left with: Foster, Dawson, Hegazi (although bigger teams will want him), Barry, Burke, Harper, Brunt, Field, JRod. (I have probably missed people but this is off the top of my head).

We'll be left with a totally demoralised bunch of no-hopers with no experience of the championship and no clue of whats needed to get out of the championship. In short I can see us struggling in that league with EVERY team out to beat us seeing us as their cup final.

Of all the people in our squad you'd keep Barry? I personally think he's as much of a waste of space as any, literally have barely noticed any contribution of his into our team other than sloppy play since he joined. Maybe it's just me but he'd be amongst my first to be shown the door
