To stay or go?

To stay or go?

With pre-season training starting on Monday, the future of three players are in the spotlight at Stockport. Towards the later part of the season Jim made it clear that Holden, Routledge and McConville were not part of his plans for the remainder of the season. Sean McConville was sent on loan to Rochdale of which he ended the season on a high with, John Routledge was sent back to Scotland to Hamilton and Euan Holden saw his place taken by Sean Newton.

With this in mind what is the future for these players, as the platters didn't have much of a part in the later part of last season is this the end of the players dealings with County? The problem County faces that the three players have one more year left on their footballing contracts, this measn that if County were to release any of the three players they are liable to compensation from The Hatters.

So with this in mind do you think Jim will keep the three? Personally I feel that John Routledge as well as Sean McConville will leave the club in the near future as both players on on high wages compared to the retained players of late. I feel that Euan Holden still has a future at County but possibly on the left wing and not in the left back position.

McConville is a decent player at this and L2 level, maybe L1. I dont blame any player for trying to better himself and trying to increase his wages just like we all do. But what I do expect from any County player while he is at the club is to give his all. I never felt that he did for County and I resent that. So as such the sooner he goes the better. Routledge didnt impress me really and he is too expensive to keep so I say find the cheapest way of moving him on. Holden although I dont rate him highly he did put in a shift when he played and he could provide cover for us on the left but at what cost in wages. Jim has already proved that there are good young players out there in the lower leagues just looking for the opportunity to prove themselves at a club like County. To begin with they will come in at vastly reduced costs until such times as they develop into a quality player at which time we then have a saleable asset

At the risk of sounding even more boring than I usually do I see it the same way NE. And ed, I would keep Holden at a pinch, again, watching the wages paid though.

Would to cast an opinion but as I am not a regular Edgeley Park attendee I feel like I don't qualify so will leave it up to you guys.

I'm a new joiner to the Forum. In exile in the SE since 96; first went to County in the mid 70s, and these days get to away fixtures when I can. Looking forward to the fixture list to see the games I can get do near home. Hayes and Yeading was my nearest team last year - and I went!! - but they are no more.

Get rid of all 3 and I might just make an appearance next season, just to buy cropped and vicman a pint. Roll on next season with a couple more new signings.

Welcome Hants Hatter. Great to have you on board. New blood always welcome (email the ed if anyone is having trouble registering by the way). I know of a Hatter who travels up from Hants and sups in the Armoury after games. Are you that Hants Hatter?

..and MA. Beers on me! Hope you can meet up. Local lad - that is great news. Tunnicliffe is far better than Conference standard. What an asset to the club. Beginning to dream of a play-off position now.
