Planning a firesale? Burn down the house whilst you're about it!
(Contributed by Shaun)
From the comments I've seen, it seems like a 'firesale' would be very popular. I simply can't get my head around this! What if the 'predicted' firesale HAD occurred in the January transfer window...does anyone think we'd now still be in the Prem? Does anyone really think class, quality players would have been falling over themselves to get a game at the Boleyn, given the financial situation and PL position? Why should it be any different in the summer?
Presumably, Cole and Green are included in the desired 'revolving door' clearout Hell yeah, Parker too (even though Sell-ivan says he can stay) while we're at it eh? Is off-loading the spine of the team a sensible option? Does anyone really think that Parker (30 later this year) is going to want to hang around when he sees Cole, Green, Upson, Zola ALL disappearing around him?
I actually heard David Gold in an interview yesterday state, 'West Ham are not a selling club'! Obviously he and DS don't see much of each other then, given Sullivan's latest incredible alleged comments. Did anyone see DS say in his initial press conference that, if he could, he'd swap the Birmingham team for the current West Ham team? Obviously not. DS has also allegedly come out and said that the manager is NOT involved in buying players! WTF?! Deja vu Monsieur DS...you've already had to fork out on one 'constructive dismissal' calamity!
The 2 D's and Brady Bunch's current motto is 'increase revenue and cut costs'. So where's the money going to come from to get a brand new team out every week who are happy to play for League 1 salaries? It ain't going to happen guys...surely the realists among you can see that? We need to retain the quality players we have (and don't say we don't have them because we do!) and improve the squad around them, and not a nucleus of just one player! Simply put...we can't afford to do anything else!
Come On You Premiership Irons!!
