Sullivan Reveals Upson And Green Could Go
Anybody else worried to hear Sullivan saying,
"We can now sit down and look at players' contracts. With regards to Upson and Green, it depends on our finances. We will do everything we can to retain our best players, but at the same time we can't spend money we don't have."
There are rumours that Dyer is going to be dumped (about time) and Boa-Morte's contract runs out at the end of the season (no loss there), so there will be very few big wage earners left at the club come July. Any money you like that Faubert will be moved out if we can find a taker!
Upson and Green will certainly be looking for bumper deals and it doesn't sound to me as if Sullivan is going to oblige. Now, this may make good business sense but does it make good football sense? I don't rate Green that highly and suspect we can find a replacement who is just as good. Upson, however, is far and away our best defender and he will be a big loss.
The biggest worry centres on Cole however. Why did we sign THREE forwards? Do the two Davids fancy selling our England striker in the summer? Watch that space!
