Our problems are going to be ongoing, and we have a long road ahead of us, a road that will see - as we are all well aware - MANY departures this summer, once again.
Admin Andy has told The News, well 'promised', that a 'massive clearout' will happen this summer - 'fresh contracts' are being negotiated with some players but with more than a dozen out of contract or seeing their loans end few of these will be retained.
This is something that I plan to 'try' to look at a little more in details with my own thoughts, so will not really say much more on this issue at the moment, apart from the fact I at least take some 'encouragement' from the fact that, if this can be believed, it is not necessarily going to be a case of 'out of contract out the door,' some talks will at least take place on reduced wage contracts.
It is not just 'out of contract' or 'end of loan' players that will be moving on, as we know everyone has a price, so anyone that has an offer made for them will probably go - West Ham are the latest side 'linked' with one of our players today with 'reports' saying they are interested in a 'cut-price' deal for Kevin-Prince Boateng.
While I have little doubt Boateng will leave, and in many ways I am not overly disappointed by this - even though he has obvious ability - I am not convinced by the West Ham 'rumours'. Put it this way it is far from certain that Gianfranco Zola will be their manager next season so who is making the 'decisions' on these various players they are 'meant' to be looking to sign?
Either way, whatever is best for the club must be done - getting high earners off the wage bill is a must, but accepting pittance for players that are worth more than we would get is not really going to help the club or creditors is it...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
