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?
OooDavidEyres
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!!
turfmanphil
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!
turfmanphil
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.
Fedupclaret
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
turfmanphil
Tmp Nixon right again I'd like to know where he gets his information from the clever git.
Fedupclaret
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!!!
turfmanphil
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'.
RickersTwickers
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
turfmanphil
Agree with you Phil - Jordan won me round over his spell with us. I would expect Fox to be a decent left back at Championship level ( he may have arrived with us low on confidence into a team low on confidence) and assume Easton will be the back up.

As a Bolton fan married to a Burnley fan, you can imagine things were a bit tense at times this season. I am glad we got Owen Coyle (even if I don't think he's the perfect choice, life's far better than under Megson). I also genuinely wish you all the best for next season. It was great not only to have 8 NW clubs in the Prem but for 4 of them to be (relatively) “small, unfashionable” clubs. It's clubs like ours that give hope to the fans of "normal" football clubs. If Blackpool can get up this season that will be amazing. So, have a great season and hope to see you in the Prem in 2011-12!

I'm not sure about Jordan. I thought he was as good a defender as Fox and a lot better on the overlap in attack. Mind you Fox has the contract so they couldn't let him go infront of Jordan. No argument with Caldwell really, we seem to have a lot of centre backs and he is the oldest and most injury prone.
ozjean
Jordan is twice the player of Fox - who I don't rate. Fox simply cannot defend. Jordan's defensive capabilities are very good. He knows how to position himself which Fox does not. He is also a much better tackler. Personally I don't even think Fox is very goo going forward. I remember in one of the home games (not sure which one) Robbie Blake had the ball 20 yards out on th left hand wing. He had two defenders in front of him and Fox 5 - 10 yards behind. Fox was stood still watching Blake until eventually Blake pointed and told him to run towards the byeline to draw one of the defenders. Was this not obvious? I would have known to make that run. On top of this I can't remember anything creative coming from him on the left wing. i remember Jordan used to get a few balls in the box. This is not saying Jordan is good going forward - just better than Fox.
