To be honest with you none of us really know what to expect this summer do we? We can only 'hope' that this or that will happen, so we only really have hope, right?
Clearly our priority is to see us taken over, and by someone who will hopefully 'do right by us!' Granted this will be a businessman or businessmen who WILL want some return on this investment, that is football for you! But they do not need to fleece us for all they can!
All in all, like I say, this is going to, in many ways basically be 'guess work' and maybe some will be more ruled by the heart more than the head, also A LOT will depend on things such as Uncle Avram staying or not I guess...
#3 Rocha John Rocha
His arrival came as something of a surprise in many ways, not that a player like him - or a defender for that matter - came in, more a surprise as it came out of left field in many ways. I think Chix was among the first to beak the news about a possible arrival?
He got off to a poor start and, in all honesty, you could see why Standard Liege were happy to release him as he did not look up to much. 2 red cards in his first 3 games did little to help him either!
Yet he has really grown in strength, and fitness, so you can now see why he has been capped by Portugal in the past.
Will he stay or will he go?
Go, sadly! I would like him to stay though...
I would like him to stay as he has really grown on me, as a footballer and a person. His footballing ability has started to shine through with the no power championship a level that you would think he would be more than capable of playing at.
Fitness issues have troubled Rocha John Rocha for several years, they did when he played for Spurs and did little to help prevent his release by Liege I am sure. So, and couple this with the fact he is probably on 'decent money', yet is young enough to warrant another move I suspect, I am not sure that his short-term contract will be extended.
As said though I would like to be wrong, and hope that I am as his determination, fighting spirit and good sported nature impresses me. Of course the experience and ability that he could share with some younger players would also be of immense benefit to us as a club, on and off the field.
I continue to have this feeling that if a player is out of contract this gives the administrators all the reason they need to say 'that is that' and nothing will even be offered? As also previously said though I would also like these thoughts to be proven wrong...
