    The Derby Telegraph speculates on the fuure of five of our players here -

    If we were to let Olsson go, who would we have to cover at the left side of defence? I would keep him as there is little to choose between him and Forsyth.

    Weimann has been unlucky for me. I don't think there is anything to choose between Lawrence and Weimann other than a 7M price tag. If Lawrence continues to show that he is nothing more than hot air with no end product, Weimann will surely get another chance. At he very least, he is a useful squad player. Incidentally, for those that talk of wanting Weimann out; he has been one of our (and was arguably the) most productive player for DCFC in the early part of this season. You only have to look at the MOTM awards given on this site and you'll see his name towards the top of the list.

    Shackell clearly has no future at the club and the same can be said of Anya. I cannot see Bent having the work rate that GR requires and he is likely behind the three of Martin, Winnall, and Nugent. On workrate alone, I think GR may even have Mason Bennett ahead of Bent in the pecking order.

    It's all well and good saying these latter 3 players will be leaving in January but if GR were to offer them on a free to the 92 professional clubs in England, I don't think there would be any takers. Why leave a cushy 20k contract for probably a quarter of the salary at another club. These 3 will all see their contracts out at DCFC.

    Shackell looks to be on his way. More than enough cover at CH.
    Anya has always looked a pospect but, apart from the odd flash, has flattered to deceive and will go.
    Weimann was our best wide player in pre season and started the season well but has gone backwards after a bright start to the season.
    Olsson is a decent left back but Max Lowe offers sufficient cover for Fozzy. Olsson's biggest problem IMO is his reluctance to use his right foot for anything other than standing on, We all know he can use it to good effect as he proved with that goal against the Dogs. However, put him around the halfway line, back to the side line and an opponent in close proximity, he will always choose the left footed backpass ahead of putting the ball into an attacking position for the onrushing Vydra/Johnson etc with his right.
    Bent. If it wasn't for that clause in his old contract that guaranteed him a year's extension based on games played and on goals scored, he wouldn't be here now. GR won't give him another year.

    I would be happy to see all 5 gone in January but, as others have said and as GR intimated earlier this season, he wanted to ship more out in the summer but finances got in the way, I can't see them going elsewhere for less money.

    The surprise for me in this article is that both the DET and Radio Derby are usually cautious about generating what could be deemed "negative speculation" in order to maintain close links with the club. That would point to the club being OK with the content, IMO.

    They may leave but it I expect at the very least we will have to pay them off/pay a proportion of the wages...

    All 5 plus more if GR has his way I’d imagine, then he’d put his own stamp on this team

    With his current choice of BJ, GT, Hudds and Ledders for midfield we might need a bit of pace injecting....

    I would only look to keep Weimann out of those 5 and possibly Olsen

    IMO, the club would have 'leaked' this so as to alert prospective buyers....or is that me being cynical?

    Most definitely cynical Val, but probably pretty close to the mark IMO.
