Ramsay used to say "I don't necessarily pick the best players, I pick the best team".
Clough used to talk about "a strong spine" and "balance" and wasn't afraid to leave players on the bench. He also believed in playing football and said "If God meant football to be played in the air, he would have put grass there". Unlike our team that plays side to side, back to the GK to hoof up the pitch.
Good on them if they are no good this year they will be as bad next season.best way to do it if they don't put the effort in get rid they are payed well enough.stoke should follow suit
Can't release players on contract. The retained list is the players still on contract or who have been offered new terms (which they might not accept) or who discussions are being held with. The released list are the players who are out of contract who the club have not offered a new contract to.
