With shabby displays in our last two game having been noticed by all and sundry, the boss has come out to make it clear that the clearout is set to begin. With current members of the squad weighing in with Lada performances on MBW X5 wages (© Freddie Shepherd) contract length is not a restrainer on who he gets shot of. I took that as a hint at Damien Duff Speaking to the press he said:

“In our last two games in Alkmaar and at The Valley, I was disappointed with the attitude of two or three of our players – not all of them – when we went a goal behind. That is something I will not accept. I know who these players are and it will not matter to me whether they have contracts or not, they will not feature in my long-term plans.

I have been in football all my life and one thing I have learned is that as far as motivation is concerned, 99 percent of the time, it comes from within. It is something you are born with, so in some cases, it does not matter who the manager is.

However, I am a naturally motivated person and I have to say I am hugely disappointed that at times in our last two games against Alkmaar and Charlton, some of our players have not shown the natural motivation I expect and want at this club.’
