Not really seeing the vision I thought I’d be seeing......Still plenty of time though so no need to panic.
Sharpe did say in his interview he wanted a young and hungry squad, but the players we let go were mainly older, experienced players (Pearce, Bishop, Logan, Davies) and they need replacing too. If we went in to next season with a squad entirely consisting of youth players and u25's, many on here would slate the board and manager for being naive and not having a squad with any experience in it...
It is about balance and it is inevitable that we will sign a couple of older players (Clarke at 28 is hardly old and could easily perform at a good level for 5 years).
I am sad to see CJ go but being blunt, 2-300k is a bloody good fee considering the season he has just had and the fact that Coronavirus will likely have an effect on valuations of players for the next season or two, by which time CJ's contract would've been up with us.
