Well he put in a transfer request last time he was held out of the team so it's plausible, more so than most footy rumour anyway.

The club failed to mention that Owens clause would be activated again at the end of the season.

 

No I don't they did. I vaguelly recall someone saying that the get out clause reduces each year, so next year it'll be £4.5m or something... I think. ;)

If that's true about Given he must be a 1st class wanker. I would be embarrassed if I were him after Harper's waited so long for his chance without spitting his dummy then he misses two games and starts demanding crisis talks.

 

If it's true that is.

 

If it is get rid, we've allowed players to run the club for to long imo and you wouldn't see the likes of Man Utd bowing to his demands so if that's what we want to be aiming for in the long term don't tolerate it.
