Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Warnock says we have offered Fletcher a new contract 

Also states Fletcher has decided he does not want to sign it yet and seems to indicate he being influenced by others around him.

So if Fletcher does bad rest season he'll stay. If he does excellent scores goals so we promoted he'll stay. If he does excellent but we just miss out on promotion like lose in playoffs he'll go to a Sheffield United or Westbrom who can pay him 25k+ in wages. Is how I see it

He isn't irreplaceable though.

Nobody in our team is really irreplaceable, I think it comes down to the confidence of people in our recruitment effectively replacing them. We spent a fair chunk of money on Fletcher, way more than we needed to but he's finally started to come good and now is the time we look like we might lose him. I'm afraid every time we lose a player who's doing a good job for us because I've still no faith in us replacing them well.

THink he'll stay. He's 25 now and looking from the outside he's hardly been prolific or a standout player in the Championship. I very much doubt that there is going to be a clamour for his signing and clubs over bidding. He might be offered a slightly better deal elsewhere due to being a free transfer, but I doubt he someone the relegated teams or teams chasing promotion will have as first or second choice. Being first choice here could easily be the most appealing option.

    • that's  a good shout, if he's recovered from his serious knee injury
    • Probs not imo. Think Warnock wants a full back who can also play CB or visa verser hence the links with Bryan and Brown. 
    • Joe bennett is still available on a free. Wonder if Warnock will be tempted the longer Bola is out
    • I suppose if one of those is then injured, then McNair can step into that gap. But personally I'm a little sceptical of his ability to play in a back 4 and I do think we can find better for those positions. Midfield is an interesting point, Warnock has mentioned he likes the 5-2-3, which would probably see McNair deployed on the left of a back 3. But where I see potential for thinking McNair is surplus is in the 4-3-3 (Warnock has said he likes). If that is our go to formation for the season,  judging on the line-ups last season and who we've brought in (and looking to bring in Payero), I'm not sure McNair starts in a 4-3-3. If we go 4-3-3 I reckon we'll see Crooks effectively take up a similar role to what Saville had last season. He'll be encouraged/allowed to step up from midfield (with the ball) and press (without the ball) alongside the lone striker. Think Morsy will be a starter most games and we know Howson is one of Warnock's favourites. With Payero coming in, Wing potentially staying (obviously he may yet leave) and a few younger lads (Malley, Hackney) around the squad, I can see why the suggestion McNair is a sellable asset comes into consideration.
