    Is sense finally prevailing?

    Post by SawleyRam on Tue 07 Mar 2017, 9:00 am

    No contract talks for those out of contract 'til the end of the season even for those whose contract ends this term.

    Has sense finally come to the fore?

    Someone had the foresight to put current squad contract dates on here not too long ago. I'd be grateful if that could be repeated if possible - thanks.

    Oh BTW, good news re. above. Keep Baird, consumate professional, cheerio Darren.

    Bent has atleast contributed a few goals this season. Which was more than i expected when the season started. I suppose it will depend if he'd be willing to take a significant pay cut. If we release him we then have to sign a replacement, a likely transfer fee and signing-on bonus will be involved. If we can find somebody younger, of commensurate ability and the whole financial package works out cheaper then fair enough, bye-bye Darren, but who?

    I put it on some years ago and it's never gone away.

    I try to keep it up to date but may have missed some renewals.

    RRC, Your contract dates show Bent as having a contract to 2018.
    Christie till 2017.
    According to Radio Derby last night, they both expire 2017, but we have an option to extend both????

    But who would you like us to sign to replace Bent? We will have Martin and Nugent to play the central striker but i think we'd need a third. Vydra, Russell, Blackman and Weimann have all been tried there and not impressed many.

    Thanks, Val - I've changed those.

    If anyone spots a mistake in the Contract Dates, please send me a PM with details.

    Actually, the opportunities Vydra has had is out wide, often for a few minutes here or there, plus the odd outing as the lone target man, which he is not. Is it any wonder that he hasn't produced the goods? He has needed a good run in the team in the right position. And oh, look! He's just had two games in a 4-4-2 / 4-2-3-1 and looked OK there - in fact against Preston, he was one of only two or three who actually gave a damm, and played some pretty good footy.
