Jan 2018 - Klose and cost cutting

I expect Klose to be off in January 2018 as we need to get his wage cost + NIC off our cost base. If he really is on £50k per week then we are talking about approx. £2.75m per year.

His transfer fee plus the £8m on the summer transfer activity will cover the wages of: Naismith, Jarvis, Jerome, McGovern and Martin during the 2018-19 season (and then they will come off the cost base) and leave us with some money for the summer of 2018.

---------------------------------------------
As for the cost base we need to cut £32m per year (between June 2017 and 30 June 2018) so we are ready for the post parachute era.

So far we have according to Sky cut £9m off our wage bill, then there is the £4m of one off compensation payments... so thats £13m towards the target already.

IF we add Klose and some players who are out of contract next summer, i.e., Hoolihan, Tettey and Jones then thats likely to be another £5m. That makes £18m.

Leaving £14m to find... possibly £6m per year and £8m for Naismith etc for just 2018-19
----------------------------------------------

Rab wasted a hellva lot of money with the players he signed.

Rab - thanks for nothing!

Club might not have any choice regarding Klose, we need to get the cost base down and we need the money to cover the wages of the players we cant move during 2018-19.

It time for people to face reality.

I wonder if they are planning on something as I think Raggett will be back in January.

Naismith has to be one to get off the wage bill but as said who will want him and the same for Jarvis and Martin.

I agree we shouldn't sell Klose but the club might take the money and save wages and take money like with Maddison in summer.

I have this worry that we are hoping that Gunn stays fit all season too. An injury to him and we will be relying on Weak wrists McGovern.....another we should look to sell at some point. and get Matthews back.

Dont forget Rab thought he was a footballer.....he also signed Jarvis, Andreau and McGovern
£30m+ down the drain

Rab destroyed our club , and received a handsome £2m for doing it . It still grieves me that so many fans chanted his name as he relegated us . Unbelievable

The club the supporters and team cried out for a player like Klose for a long long while, to think that he would be sold in the near future is completely unrealistic under any circumstances, and If that makes me one of those so called people who need to face reality then yep thats me standing up to be counted!

What grinds my gears is that so many defeatists are so quick to try and think they know how our club needs to be run and also think they have all the solutions when in reality its pure guess work and speculation!

We have to keep Klose as we will not get a CB anywhere near his level to replace him
in the near future. I know that the players we need to get shot of to save wages to fund keeping our better players are not going to be very popular but hopefully there is a club desperate enough to sign each one of :
Jer1me.1 goal every 1000 minutes. Any club who wants a striker who cannot score !!
Naismith . Still thinks he is premier league class so maybe Moyes will want him.
Martin. Think we are stuck with him. Cancel playing contract, lower wages and coach
youngsters ??
Jarvis. Have to have contract cancelled if possible.

Maybe that will allow us to keep Nelson, Klose, Madison and Pritchard.

A sensible conclusion DG and one that no doubt the hierarchy will be mulling over!

I would rather us lose with team of passionate , hungry , determined, youngsters than watch us lose with the passionless Jerome , Martin and Naismith in the team . For me we have to somehow sweep the last of the very expensive old guard away whilst still keeping Klose and Wes to guide the youngsters. As is says in the Pink Un this morning , it may take until next season , but at least we will have a passionate team with the right attitudes
