Enrique...3mil

Should Big Al stay id imagine he'd fight to keep the likes of Bassong and Beye, but we would still need a few championship players...LB, CB, CM, LW and ST at least.

Will the money be there to spend or will the net income be pumped into running costs?

Would prefer to keep bassong aswel but if we go down i really cant see him staying. I could see him going to arsenal for around 6mil.

Beye will get snapped up by a Prem team aiming for Europe IMO. He's one of the players that are nailed on to be leaving.

 

I dunno like...he seems to be a loyal character and i think he'd wanna help get us back up should we go down.

 

Bassong would be chased by a few top clubs and it would be hard to keep him but i think we could hold on to him and should we not bounce back let him go.

 

Cant see enrique staying tbh.

 

I would play Guthrie ahead of Nolan every time but i think Big Al would opt for experience and battlers in CM.

I agree that he obviously likes the club and the area but it's more a case of Ashley selling him at the first sign of a decent offer and on a footballing level, would you really want to play in the Championship? I'd love to keep him, obviously but I can't see it happening. We have an outside chance of keeping Bassong since his disciplinary record might keep some teams at bay but I think he'll move on as well. It'll be a shame for both of them since they could have easily become real fan favourites had the club kept its head screwed on.

He's 31 and he's got a year left on his contract. Makes little sense on the part of him or the club for him to hang around imo.

Albeit a valid point stiva i cant help but think the likes of Beye and Bassong are the types of players we will need to bounce back if it happens. And if Big Al stays on which i fully expect him too id think he would give a list of players to MA that in no certain terms should be sold.

 

A decent amount of money to spend (Championship amount) and the assurance that certain players will not be sold are just two things i think will be massive in the decision for Big Al to stay on.

Most of the squad will be off and replaced.

 

I can only see Taylor, maybe Lovenkrands, Shola, Edgar, Carroll, Krul, Butt, Harper staying.

 

A couple may not want to go, but we probablies won't be able to afford them, ie. Nolan.

 

Just hope some of the reserves can make a step-up or we can wheel and deal.

Xisco will be gone no doubt about it. I really really want us to sign Marlon King if we go down, he'll get 35 goals in a decent championship side. Marlon King and Ross McCormack would be more potent than any current combination we have.
