Quote from: evertonutADVM = why we should never offer long contracts on initial purchase.

A bit irrelevant, considering we had signed Pienaar on a loan first, and had a good look at him. Shandy was always going to be a gamble.

We should never sell Pienaar because of two things;

1) He's a fantastic player. His eye for a pass, awareness and creativity are WORLDLY.

2) His workrate is phenomenal. His tracking back and ability to win the ball of fella's twice his size is incredible. He's worth an extra man on the pitch in this sense.

I think Lucas Neil will not be retained next season and this will free up some funds to pay SP, if it works like that of course.

They could of course increase ticket prices by a couple of pounds :(

Quote from: ally2He's one of my favourite players and I don't want to see him go but isn't his contract up at the end of the season?  

Should we try to raise some money in January when we'd get nothing in the summer or gamble and hope he can help lift us to another season in Europe?

We get:
1. Cash from Pienaar;
2. One decent player we buy with some of the cash from Pienaar on last day of window;
3. Another year of Bill Kenwright, who uses the profit to make debt service payments and keep the needle in his arm
4. Decline in team morale and overall quality as another hard-working, accomplished core player we were building around gets sold.

Yeah, great deal.

Have we learned nothing? Well, most of us have.
