Anywhere between £750k-£1m would be a reasonable price to sell him at.

Make a tidy profit off him and use the funds on other players.

It's his level and he'd do a good job for someone like Pompey.

True.

Most of them don't go to the game anyway so it doesnt matter

Out of curiosity are you a fan of Gleeson's?

He was good for where we were, but if we want to challenge at the top end of the table he's not got the quality.

For one he lacks the brain to track his runner - cost us a few goals last season. One game stands out - Derby at home, little things like that are the difference between winning and losing

Shame that it seems to be just a rumour. I'd be delighted to see him gone from the club.

I can accept players making mistakes or not being good in certain areas of the game but to deliberately avoid tackles and pretend to be involved defensively like he has often in the past is taking the piss.

There have been games where we'd be better with 10 men than as 11 including Gleeson. With 10 men, you can clearly see that someone has been left unmarked and you defend accordingly. With Gleeson, you can't always see that someone is effectively left unmarked because Gleeson will be standing near them and you'd assume he'd put in a tackle.

Amazing how our panel of experts can judge that Gleeson is deliberately hiding, or pretending to tackle, yet he's played 120 games for us in a position that has always had alternatives

It's almost as if some people have no idea what they are actually looking at when they view a match

You make it sound like people have claimed he's deliberately hiding because he's trying to get away with as little as possible. Nobody believes that, he's a good pro.

It is true though that he avoids the ball due to confidence issues, particularly in the last year or so. You can just tell he's so frightened of making a mistake. He was a bit better at the beginning of his time here though.

There have been plenty of examples where he's given the ball away and then rather than trying to win it back, he's slowly jogged towards the box and then stood there doing nothing.

There was one in particular last year that cost us a goal - I saved the highlights on my computer at home so I'll have a look later and chuck it on Youtube.

Watch from 2:08. Gleeson fecks up a header so it goes into our own box but keep watching him. Look at the desire he shows to make up for his mistake. Watch how he lets the guy who went up for the header with him drift away from him and have possession. Then he wonders into the penalty box and marks no-one. The ball is crossed right in front of him and he just watches it....

Is that a man trying to avoid having to defend or is that a man who simply doesn't know how to defend? You can't have players doing that even if they are a decent passer of the ball.
