The Ins & Outs-Four May Stay, Four Will Go!

The Ins & Outs-Four May Stay, Four Will Go!

It has been officially announced today that Robbie Blake, Brian Jensen, Steven Thompson and Michael Duff have been offered new deals and will stay at Turf Moor if they accept the offers.

Clarke Carlisle and player-coach Graham Alexander have also now both signed new two-year deals.

Four players however will be leaving Turf Moor including current captain, Steven Caldwell.The news regarding Caldwell comes as no surprise really following his own statements on the Official Site a week or so ago that a deal did not seem to be forthcoming.

Stephen Jordan is another casualty as is Nicky Weaver. The keeper has the distinction of not having played one game for the Clarets since arriving in the January window.

These first team squad players join Joey Gudjonsson, Christian Kalvenes and Fernando Guerrero who have already left the club.

The loan deals for David Nugent, Jack Cork and Frederic Nimani have also come to an end and the players have returned to their respective clubs.

Remco van der Schaaf remains on loan at Brondby next season.

Our young midfielder, Adam Kay is another of our squad looking for a new club after today's news.

A couple of youth players will also be leaving. Ben Hoskin, a first year professional is being released along with keeper, Jonathan Lund.

Michael King and Dominic Knowles have been offered their first professional deals but we say goodbye to the second-year youth players, Liam Newman, Oliver Devenney, Jake McEneaney and Danny MacDonald

Why is Remco being loaned out again? Who is paying his wages? Is there still hope for him at the turf and we're biding our time with him until he reaches his peak aged 37?

I make that 23 first team players remaining if the four offered contracts accept but that also assumes Eagles, Fletcher & the rest will be staying! Glad about the one's offered contracts and we are now back to two keepers, Jensen and Penny!!

I think they are just letting him see out his contract with about 12 months to run. I think Brondby are hoping to get him permanently after that!

Cannot understand the Remco situation I rated the player I know he fellout with boyle but don't you think he would be good in the Championship.

I don't know Fedup, I never saw enough of him to form an opinion. What is clear is that Judas has a lot to answer for bringing the likes of van der S, Penny, Easton,Eckersley, Edgar, & Guerrero to the club and then rarely if ever playing them at a time when we needed to maximise the return on our player investments. This was vital money that could have gone to bringing in players that could have kept us up, not ones that may or may not come on now we are down again

Aye, he simply must have a mole at Turf Moor unless the club are leaking it on purpose to let us down gently. Let's see whether Jordan finishes up at Bolton!!!

I proabably agree with all those decision's apart from Jordan. He is a decent left back at Championship and we need cover. Unless they are planning on using Easton as cover. Van Der Schaff does have another year on hsi contract, thats why he is still on loan, why the hell did he get a 3 year contract at his age. Shouldn't he have got two like the rest? Susan did sign some wash outs didn't he. Michael Knight was the young player of the year, left winger. Don't we need a left winger, hmmmmmmm.

No real surprises for me, other than Jordan. The Remco situation will, I fear, in time simply be referred to officially as ' The Remco Situation'.

Yes, I have mixed feelings about losing Jordan. I am not convinced that Fox was that much better than Jordan at Prem level and I thought the latter got in a number of crucial tackles over the season. Still if Fox stays, he might come into his own at Championship level and we do have Easton waiting in the wings as back-up,maybe even Edgar
