•Any opinions on the McNally web chat from Thursday?

Recommended Posts

The fact that he suggested we don''t have to sell our major players but did hint that Lambert will have to move on some of the fringe squad players on.

The first one the springs to mind is Cureton because of his wages.
I would think he would be let go for free/loaned if we can get someone to take over is contract.

I still feel he will move on Semi, if he gets the chance.
Again big wages and out of contract. plus we now have cover.
If Spillane comes back something must give.

Midfield looks like Gill and OTJ are not in favor so could be moved on.

The left midfield spot can be covered by Lappin and also Wiggins (we need a defensive player in that spot) in front of Drury.
On the right we now have McNamee but in front of Semi it would be very fast but a possible defensive nightmare.

Something I doubt that Lambert will want.

From what I can see the Lambert plan is to bring in Martin so he can play McNamee in front and give him some freedom.
To me it looks like Semi''s day are numbered in the long term.

In the middle/right we have Hughes, Tom Adeyemi, Smith and Russell so that looks enough cover with McVeigh/Spillane being able to fill in various roles from the bench if we get really short handed.
Dawkin has also proven to be a decent midfield player who can do a job

Overall I think the following could be on the outs


Plus I think that there is an outside chance Russell could leave in Jan.

He is out of contract in the summer and we may cash in now rather than seeing him walk on a free.
Obviously Burnley were interested pre-season.

If we offloaded the above players it would save the club a lot of money plus allow us to buy Martin and McNamme. (and maybe Seabourne + Striker)

I think I read that OTJ fee is tied to appearances and promotion so could save us more than just his wages.
