    I cannot see the point of getting rid of our left back and not having a replacement yet.

    Even if we did have a replacement you still need a backup.

    I would have kept McCartney as a backup and brought in a new left back.

    Can't help thinking this summer transfer dealing could mirror last years.

    I guess it depends on when Linda's contract was up.

    if he's seen as completely superfluous to requirements then the notion of having to pay him a year's salary on just a few months stay until the replacement comes in was probably thought too expensive to consider.

    Hopefully, it means there's been some behind the scenes dealmaking going on and it's just a matter of signing the new kid... but on the face of it - it does seem a bit silly to release people before there's a replacement all tucked up.

    Not particularly sad about the three leaving... but gonna depend big time on having replacements for some if not all of them sooner rather than later.

    It might also be a case of us having no money and so needing to free up the wages before we know what we can realistically offer potential signings.
