SG is planning as mass clearout at Huddersfield regardless of what division we end up in, at least 12 to go, these inc:

Joey G
N Clarke

no replacements decided yet, he'll wait to see which division we in first

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Smithies won't leave!

but lee, joey, nathan and tom clarke, naysmith, mcoombe, roberts will leave for free johnson and morrinson back to parent clubs
Then rhodes leaving aswell, no way SG will be able to get rid of robinson,gobern, arfield and woods with wages there on plus absolutely useless and wage cap coming in.
IF we get promoted then we should be able to get some decent players in rather than over paying for people who just come to sit on their cash thinking they'll breeze to promotion, then bottle it when things get tough

Agree0 Disagree0

Bennett, Chippendale, Colgan, Cadamarteri, N Clarle, T Clarke, Gudjonsson, Lee, Miller Naysmith and Roberts are all out of contract in the Summer. Johnson and Morrisson will go back to their parent clubs.
Cannot imagine Grayson wanting to offer any a contract (other than Morrisson but don't imagine parent club will sell).
As for Rhodes, I think Hoyle will take a decent offer and Rhodes will hope a Premiership club comes in.
Possibly others that Clark bought will be on their way.
Grayson will have to be astute as to what he buys to give us a backbone to compliment players that are left.

reading used to be a team with the average premiership players. (kevin doyle , leroy lita , marcus hannaman , nicky shory etc.) reading have just recently signed jason robers , who is a premiership standerd player , and will probably continue to buy these but dont have much cash

Believable0 Unbelievable1

The takeover is pending the football leagues approval, they are going to be pumping in a fair bit of money, they've already said they're going to pay for a class 1 acadamy

Agree0 Disagree0

You mean take advantage of the premier leagues funding towards an academy up to the tune of 5m I believe.

Word at fratton park this evening is that Pompey could be forced out of business next week and all players up for an auction to pay off the debts..!

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Very sad if that was to happen, but a sign of the times I'm afraid. Looking at the squad though, I think most would have to go down a division or so to get a club, and accept a lot lower wages. Those who are left may find themselves playing part time.

Agree0 Disagree0

Where you hear this then?
