The asterisk * means the club has an option to extend the contract by a year.

Out of the 2021 bunch, it’s noticeable that Edwards (who could be considered an asset ) doesn’t have that option and could walk away on a free. There’s a lot there who the club will happily say goodbye.

Thanks for that Tang 👍..... I can see Town definitely letting quite a few of those players leave , option or no option. This salary cap is going t9 guide Evans/ Lamberts decisi9ns 9n who to keep or offload isn’t it.

I can see Chambers and Skuse finishing their playing careers this season. What happens next wit( either of them is anyone’s guess. Personally I’d keep them at the Club a social and coaching capacity with the young players we have. Both do roles along these lines already I think.

If we’re in League One, we really need to offload as many fringe, injury-prone, under-performing senior players as possible. If we’re going to bring in decent senior players on decent wages with the salary cap it’s possible if we trim the senior players and use the under 21’s as backup. In many ways we’re doing that anyway with the injuries.

I wonder what percentage of our player budget is actually fit enough to play? Big chunk of the playing budget is injured and players like Donacien, Huws and Kenlock rarely get a game. When we’re trying to keep within the 2.5 million budget limit, a huge chunk of that isnt even making it on the field.

That’s an awfully polite post, Tiny. Good to see such manners.

I don’t think it was the smartest move to give Kenlock such a long contract. He’ll be difficult to shift.

That's pretty much all of them, don't you think? Maybe not Chambers, but he's on his last legs anyway.

When was the last time you met him/her/ add in other pronoun? Gender fluidity is a thing these days.

Skuse as a coach, Liz? The only time he would be any good as a coach is if the rules of the game changes and there were points to be had for negativity, passing the ball badly backwards and sideways. But come to think of it, we're already pretty good at that so hardly in need of a coach :D

Chambers and Skuse are great pro’s. Certainly take care of themselves considering the number of games they’ve played. And obviously very well respected within the club. So I can see that angle about them being coaches here. The major thing, for me, is they’ve been the most senior players here during one of the worst periods in our history. Not their fault, but begs the question - Do we need something different?
From their side, could they learn more and also different techniques at another club? If they do coach here - will they just be coaching the same things? It’s not as if it’s The Liverpool Boot Room where there was a succession plan based around a very successful winning formula. Ours recent tradition has been that of decline. Something needs to change.

If they do coach here - I hope they’re brought in for the right reasons and not for sentimental reasons. I wouldn’t be against seeing Skuse and Chambers here as part of the coaching or managerial staff - but wouldn’t it be better to get some experience elsewhere first? Maybe at a club which has recent successful coaching history.
