After the fiasco on deadline day in the summer I expect we aren't letting Johnny formally go until the replacement is through the door. Russell is still under contract until the end of the season and if needs be I'm sure we'll keep him here until the end of it.
Stedcfc replied to DcFc Dyycheee's topic in Transfer TalkThis is the exact approach that has caused us all sorts of problems in the past. Lets pay £6m for Bradley Johnson... if it gets us promoted it will earn us £200million. You can apply that approach to any player at any price (up to £200m of course!). Funnily enough I'd imagine we might need the £200m if we get up, to try and keep us there! Of course you have to push the boat out a bit to get there but you've got to get the balance right.
