Thread: Who's left in our Squad for next season?

  1. #1

    Who's left in our Squad for next season?

    Apparently the following players are out of contract this year:
    Morrison, Pack, Ralls, Smithies, Murphy, Vassell, Flint, Brown and Vaulks

    Given that we seem to be cutting costs I can only see us offering Ralls another contract as he's pretty much a guaranteed starter when fit and the right side of 30.

    Could be a very different looking squad next year

    Probably a much younger squad as well.

    It's a real opportunity to set the direction for the future.

    No Ryan Giles either, as presumably heíll return to Wolves.

    I don't see Giles getting much of a look-in at Wolves. We should make a cheeky offer in January.

    I think he's highly rated there, don't think we've got any chance

    if finances allow it I'd like us to keep Ralls and Morrison from that lot. I'm assuming they would need to agree to a big pay reduction though, so they might want to try their luck elsewhere.
    if brown can Force his way into the team it may be worth keeping him.

    Wouldnít be surprised to see a couple of those shipped out in January to cut costs and perhaps raise a few quid.

    Brown is terrible! The only way he'll get into the team, is if we have injuries. He's simply not good enough for the Championship.

    Morrison has been poor this season, hence why he's been benched a lot recently. Could you imagine how much possibly more slower he might be in a year's time?

    Keep , Morisson, Ralls , Smithies and Pack as a backbone of experience and build the youngsters around them .

    who is going to pay the wages they are on to take them off us?

    smithies is good, but rumoured to be on a very high wage. I think Phillips will be fine in the long run. they are all probably amongst the highest earners at the club, a lot will depend on what they are prepared to drop down to.

    Keep Pack? He's become a liability. If you're going to keep an aging player, at least choose one who's going to lead by example on the pitch.

    I think Pack is becoming more influential. He looks up, sees the game and can pass the ball. Obviously, he has his limitations. That's why he played for the likes of Cheltenham, Bristol City and us.

    If you look at that list of players, none of them are on an upward trajectory. They're going to have to take pay cuts. But I think we need to keep at least a couple of them. I would consider Ralls the most important. I'd like to keep Pack on a short-term deal and Morrison.

    Re: Who's left in our Squad for next season?

    Keeping Ralls has to be the priority. He's been underrated by City fans for years and at 28 still has plenty to give

    pack plays an important role for us at the moment, but we also will presumably have Wintle back by then as well, who should also be able to play it, with perhaps a youngster like D'Almeida as backup

    Donít be surprised to see Moore moving on, either in January, or in the summer.
    I am not sure how happy he is here and letís face it, he is the only player worth serious money.
    If Morison wants to re style the team he may want to sign players elsewhere on the pitch

    Re: Who's left in our Squad for next season?

    Well the feedback from that meeting was none would be offered deals wasnt it.

    I suppose we are close to finding out.

    Ralls and Smithies should be offered deals plus Morrison if he comes back near to his best.

    Im sure the 3 will be able to get deals in the Championship elsewhere though so will we keep any of them.?

    Brown I really cant believe McCarthy turned down money for him.

  19. #19

    Re: Who's left in our Squad for next season?

    Like Ralls and Morrison stay, experience will be vital with even more youngsters being thrown in.

    They can all sign deals elsewhere from Jan though can't they? Doesn't seem like any of them will be staying on.

    Re: Who's left in our Squad for next season?

    If this club has any sense it would have to be only a jaw dropping offer which will tempt it to let Moore go. In my opinion he has to stay at all costs.

    Out of all the other senior players I would keep only Ralls. If Morrison accepted the offer on the table then so be it but out of the rest there's no one I'd be sad to see leave, and there's at least four I'd happily pay their Pickford's bill if they left sooner rather than later.
