Out of Contract Summer 2010 but in Our Hearts?

Out of Contract Summer 2010 but in Our Hearts?

We have 10 players out of contract in the Summer of 2010.

The players are as follows:

Robbie Blake

Stephen Jordan

Steven Caldwell

Clarke Carlisle

Brian Jensen

Graham Alexander

Joey Gudjonsson

Steven Thompson

Michael Duff

Christian Kalvenes.


Two of those players have so far indicated a wish to stay with the club, Stephen Jordan and Robbie Blake. Indeed Robbie has indicated that he would like to finish his professional playing days with the club but will Coyle be willing to give him a new contract and the chance to achieve his hopes? Do you think he should? We have a poll running on this very question on our front page so why not vote and see if you are in the majority or minority?

At the time of writing the poll was in favour of him staying but only just with 56& saying 'yes' compared to 44% 'no'.

What about the other players though? You might find this is difficult to answer depending on whether we stay in the top flight or not. Some players are likely to be a god send in the Championship if we are relegated but potentially out of their depth if we stay up.

So let us know below this thread who you think should stay and who we should let go!

A secondary question could be do you think Coyle will agree with your wishes?

One thing we do know is that the players will probbaly be negotiating over the New Year with Owen Coyle and if need be are free to talk to other clubs.

Honestly Jensen is a god between the sticks, if it wasn't for him we would have put a crapload more past you at the bridge! Keep him at all costs!

He has hit a bad patch though, BT. He picked up a deadleg in the away defeat at Barnsley (although recovered enough by next match) and hasn't looked as sharp since. If he gets back the form and plays consistently well until the end of the season, then I am sure his contract will be renewed. Jensen in the past has gone through bad spells and always seems to play better when he has good competition for his place behind him. I think some of the tonkings away from home and the Rovers defeat have shaken his confidence. He has been phenomenal for us though up until Barnsley and of course all last season.

I would like to see us keep most if not all those players, on a one year contract though.

Would we get anyone better for the wages they earn? Agree with tmp that it all depends which division we are in, though I doubt we'll bust our wage structure either way. I shall miss them greatly, but my predictions are that we shall say goodbye to these great servants of the club if we stay up: Duff, Kalvenes, Gudjonssson, Alexander and Thompson. If we go down, we'll keep Duff and Gudjonsson, but still lose Kalvenes, Thompson and Alexander. I base these speculations on Flood's stated commitment to building a club on young players. Attempts will be made to keep Alexander in a coaching role, but he'll seek another year playing elsewhere.

Other than maybe the Beast and Jordan the lot could leave!!!!!! WHY? Well apply the following question. How many of the teams in the top half of the Prem League wll be fighting to sign these players? It maybe harsh but I am not convinced this list is full of stars?

It really does depend where we end up. But I think those that definatley will stay are Jordan and Jesnen. I think we will say good bye to Kalvenas as Easton may be ready by next season at left back. I can see Blake and Alexander staying on one year contracts. Blakes been very good this year and Coyle just likes Alexander. I think it we will say good bye to Duff, Gudjonsson and Thompson. I can't see Duff getting back in team and same with Thompson. Gudjonsson although he plays, in the last couple of games Coyle has started giving McDonald the nod ahead of him. The big question mark for me is Caldwell, he may be captain but I just don't know whether he will stay or not. If we get another centre back in Jan, I don't think he will.

Don't think we'll see much of Michael Duff this season if everyone remains fit. He'd be the one I'd least expect to see here next year. Don't think there is much doubt about Grezza. He'll be around for ever.

Is Caldwell still captain, I know Alexander was captain while Caldwell was out with his injury, but he seems to have kept the captaincy, still wearing his captains armband.

Hadn't noticed that against Hull. Caldwell is still writing the Captain's column in Claret&You (see Hull proggy!)
