Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

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.

    • As per the above, look at our list of defenders and the fact we're looking at another 1 or 2. I don't see why anyone would look at this potential signing and think he's gonna be playing unless we have a¬†huge¬†crisis.
    • That's why I'm not worried though. Just because Bamba is going to turn up, doesn't mean he's first or even second in line to go into the side if we lose a couple of defenders. By all accounts, we are after 1 or 2 other potential left-sided defenders and in both Bryan and Brown are looking at 2 players who can play centre-back. Even at this moment in time have¬†Hall, Fry, McNair, Dijksteel and Peltier at the very least before we even think of Bola or Bamba or anybody else coming in. Discounting Wood here as I suspect he'll go out on loan. I just don't think Warnock is sat there thinking Bamba is first or second to be called in in case of a crisis right now. He won't play him if the others are available, he's there for big emergencies and probably for cup games where he won't want to play the first team players and would mostly be there on a super low budget contract to help around the squad.
    • Sorry cwc. I wasnt meaning it that way to you it was meant against people claiming to be in the know
    • You misread the post then
    • No mate, but the season in question we had ayala, Gibson, Kalas, r Williams as well as woodgate. We also had fry coming through and de laet who could play CB from January. We also only played 2 centre backs.¬†¬†
