That's because nobody wanted him!!

As for the salary cap it'll all depend on how much we have paid him and when it was i.e. 2021 or 2022.

Saints did something similar a few years back with Luke Douglas and Ryan Morgan.


You'd hope that, logically, whatever we've paid him is less than the total amount of his deal. If it's the same amount, we might as well have kept him on the books. It's offers little sense to pay him 100% of what he's owed and then let him leave.

Him leaving means we are not over our quota spots...

He had to leave to fit Tommy in by the sounds of things.

It has been in the past, so maybe it’s changed. They’ve said they identify the players as well as signing them. The coach hasn’t been in charge of going to them with a list of targets although they have said they consider their input.

Ultimately it doesn’t really matter. I’m happy all of them have more about them than to waste money on Danny Richardson. It has to be a none story. I’d back them with pretty much any signing. I haven’t bagged any of the other new lads, I can see exactly why each one has been signed but this would make no sense whatsoever.

Might be misremembering but I seem to think they said they had final say. I took that to mean ultimately they could veto any signings, and would be the ones who discussed salary etc, rather than it meaning they sorted them all without the input of the coach.

blake left in 89 and we signed frano in 90, so we already had blake...



Pieman,

You are indeed correct. Memory is not what it used to be and on checking, it would appear that Monie actually wanted to retain Phil Blake at the end of the 1989 season, but the then board of Directors insisted on replacing him with Frano Botica which proved to be a very wise decision.

Best goalkicker in all the years, I have supported the club, followed by Andy Farrell, Pat Richards and Colin Tyrer.

If only, we had one like them now!

Re: Goalkickers, I wonder how last year's ratio of goalkicking accuracy (Hardaker & Smith) compares with someone like Colin Whitfield who 'from memory' skewed some absolute whoppers that should have been nailed on.
