You really need to get back on your medication as a matter of urgency for us all.

Haha.

The insider knowledge some people claim to have on here is outstanding! I am still waiting for a member of the 'Pembo was are best coach EVER' to come forward and tell us when they were coached by him!

Just because the club haven't said anything about Walsh being offered a deal doesn't mean that it didn't happen. There's no mention of it with Diedhiou either and we know that he was offered one.

I think the club statement sort of hinted that there was an offer on the table to Walsh but thankfully was passed up.

You've just jogged their memories

“In reality he’s not all that” what? A player promoted out of this division with Huddersfield and the Championships top scorer when we signed him?

Sulk away Nahki in my opinion (not that I think he has or does) - I admire him for not accepting our complete mediocrity on and off the field and wanting better. I think if Nigel Pearson has his way we may see a few more stropping around the place if we lose and fail to muster shots against the opposition and I hope so too.

I think NP likes and rates Wells, as he featured in all of the games, never hid, and worked hard, so I would hope that we all got behind out main striking threat and top scorer and backed him rather that unfairly scapegoating him for being slightly miffed at realising the dream he was sold was actually a bit of a farce as has been proven.

Do you actually believe he ever wanted to come here? I don't. I personally don't think he wants to be here. I see him completely diffently to yourself. Happy to be proved wrong...but he's not a player I can warm to.

Fordy is more like Miss Marple.

Don't be so utterly ridiculous !!!  Miss Marple was attractive in her own geriatric & incontinence pad style.

See your point TBH.

I agree he was maybe unenthused about coming here, but I think with the complete change of structure and a manager that is fit for purpose, with the opportunity to rebuild, then it is like signing for a new club.

I think he surprises a few next year and will be a senior figure in our revamp.

Nah, he wouldn't have dared, he was the year below me.

Not sure he's the man for the job then.

He wanted to be at QPR from the start. Just seemed like a last roll of the dice option from LJ and it hasn't worked out well

I can’t say I’m bothered about any of those players leaving, we needed a clear out and a fresh start, it’s been obvious that somethings not been right in the camp for a few seasons.

I’m sure a few more contracted players will also leave as I’m sure NP has advised all if they will feature in his plans or not.

This all feels like a new era which is exciting after a largely dull few years!

Wonder how many of the released players would have been retained if the kids we used last season hadn't equipped themselves so well.

None.  they aren't what's needed going forward and they would expect to be well paid for being sub-standard.  I wonder how they'l do getting new deals?  I suspect it will be a matte of them dropping their financial expectations.

Not unhappy to see any of that lot go,

Interesting that it states with Weimann that contract negotiations are ongoing which would sugest thats its not a contract extention but reduced terms?

Yep.  We will not be wanting to pay him £22k a week for a year.  I would think (hope) we're looking at a longer deal on lower terms.  The club has had little to no income for 15 months whilst paying £30 million plus pa in wages.  An adjustment is necessary.  If he doesn't accept and can get a better deal elsewhere then good luck.

It is a good point.

I think come September there will be a lot of players on far less money than previously and playing at a lower level.

And that does not include the ones who simply will not find a club.

From our level downwards there are massive financial issues that will not be resolved for some time.

I am not a huge fan and even less of one at £22k per week.

If we can sign him on a 12 month deal at half that alleged wage then maybe, otherwise not interested

You should give Nigel a bell and let him know.

Don't want him to make a terrible mistake.

Well that article in Football Insider was numerically accurate then. 11 out!

Bit surprised about Simpson given the age thing, how dynamic can a side be with a 34 year old at right back?

In terms of the outs, I know he's been out for much of the season but all the same a bit surprised about Walsh. He was (IIRC) Coventry's player of the Season in 2019/20, albeit in League One but promoted all the same! He has room for growth too given his age...our loss (fitness permitting) might well be someone's gain.

Have they really equipped themselves so well? They've been okay but nothing special. Can't see many starting next season for us for example.

I had high hopes for Walsh but it has been evident for a couple of seasons now our midfield has been very weak and easily pushed aside. Walsh would certainly come into this category as did Massengo but he had bulked up and become a different player. We really need players who can boss the midfield and be much more threatening to the opposition. We have the youngsters coming through, on a lesser salary who can become as good as Walsh. Sad but makes sense. 

I think the thinking is that Joe Williams will do that.

Well, he has played CB as well.  Maybe the plan is to have him as a squad player rather than in the starting XI - in which case the contract negotiations will be reflecting that change in status.  

He will turn 35 next season. Options will be in short supply.
