It’s going to be interesting this summer when contract talks begin between the two parties (G&S v Allardyce) Already noises are coming out of FatSam’s corner that he will consider not signing a new contract unless he is given a hefty transfer kitty.
If I was his boss that would give me all the info needed to say thanks but no thanks. Hefty Transfer kitty?
Carroll – salary of nearly 4million quid (for that money we could of got a great player)
Jarvis – nearly 11 million (worth half that)
Maiga – Nearly 5 million (shit)
Also he is worried about being short of strikers next season. Cole, Maiga, Welly and Chamakh all gone. He forgets they were all his choices (except Cole) and they are all shit. Another thing he only bloody plays one up front so because of this he didn’t even need Chamakh or Welly in January so that has probably wasted a few million in wages as well!
Personally this whole transfer business is going to be the issue in the Summer. Allardyce has been terrible in the market and has wasted millions of pounds on shit and I cant see next season being any different. Sam doesn’t have a leg to stand on if that will be his gripe so he may as well leave now, I don’t want to see another influx of over-the-hill players coming to the club and him ignoring our young players for the likes of Taylor, O’Neil and O’Brien who are Championship players!
