The likes of Maikel Kieftenbeld, Jacques Maghoma and Jonathan Grounds see their deals run out at the end of the season

I even read his comments in a Geordie accent now to get the full effect.

what the feck is he on about? Why wouldn't he sign them up to new contracts? Just let them go for free because they don't have good games for 25 games in a row

If he really thinks we have players who can play well 25 games in a row I wish him the best of British. Pretty much nobody outside the very top clubs has that.

Of those players Kieftenbeld and Grounds deserve / merit new deals as they have something to offer and the right attitude. The rest should be let go.

Blimey. We could wipe out most of the Rowett signings in several months.

Fabtastic.
Ndoye is still the best midfielder in the Championship.

We do ultimately, yeah. But as we are proving at the moment, you can't change it all too quickly otherwise it goes to shit.

Grounds is a decent performer, tries his balls off and has never been any trouble. Kieftenbeld the same.

Despite both of their limitations that's something to work with. You have to phase in better quality of course but with those two I would say they might (hopefully) be replaced eventually with better quality and not necessarily be first choice - but in the meantime you know they can offer something.

The others mentioned have pretty much nothing to offer going forward into the future and can be let go.

Only my opinions, obviously.

I would challenge him to name a starting 11 from all the players on the planet who would fit that category.

He couldn’t

The bloke is full of sound bites and bluster I.e. shit

Look at them in January? When they can talk to whatever clubs they want to?

We haven’t got a wide player at the club, if juke playing then we need one.
