Bad Business At The Boleyn
There may be a logical reason for this and, if you know what it is, please let me know.
Now, to begin, I was always taught by my parents to "Look after the pennies and then the pounds look after themselves" and I have never been in debt in my life as a result. So, I am struggling to understand the logic of releasing Kyel Reid on a free.
Hammers fans are understandably annoyed that Reid has signed for Shafting United but, in many respects, that is missing the point. From what I can make out, Reid was wanted by a number of clubs, having acquitted himself well whilst out on loan. And he has made it onto the pitch in Claret & Blue 9 times so he obviously isn't a complete mug.
So tell me, why didn't we try to sell the guy for a modest sum? I know £200,000 would be a drop in the ocean given the £25m we have to pay the Blunted Blades, but anything is better than nothing surely? In fact, £200,000 might just about pay Ashton or Dyer's medical bills for a whole month!
