As I recall Posh performed well after their departure, an better since
You were left heartbroken when Tyrone left Stuie...

I am heart broken to think how good things could be now for Posh, if we had a dynamic tall target man :D

No one's taken away anything this season yet have they?

Be fair to Darragh here...How many lower league clubs with 5k gates could afford to turn down multi million pound bids?...Us, thanks to the chairman.

My opinion is that he'll sell no one...bring in another striker...and go all out for a play off win.

If that fails...We sell our assets in the summer and build again.

That's what we do.
yep

In the middle of their promotion season 2015-16, Burton Albion parted company with both their manager (Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink) and their top scorer (Abdenasser El Khayati). AEK had 8 goals from 24 L1 appearances at the time of his departure, and Burton were top of the table. More than one way to skin a cat, evidently: Burton's preferred option was the clean sheet. David Oldfield was JFH's assistant at the time, I believe.

Is it purely we buy bargin players to sell ??
Or we buy players to hold on to and challenge for the title or playoffs
We won two promotions by keeping the holy Trinity together.
We're not in a position to gamble this season.

If I were DMac I'd sell Marriott and put together a squad capable of going up automatically next season.

We've come a long way in the last six months or so and now's the time to play the long game.
Same ole statements every year, '
'If I were DMac I'd sell Marriott and put together a squad capable of going up automatically next season' and when next season comes, know doubt you'll be saying the same and the next season after that.....

Mark has a good point though.

We haven’t sold an ‘asset’ for 2 years when Washington left. Gayle & Britt left at the end of a season for a higher league so it’s not like we’re selling players to promotion rivals.

As Chompy said the other day I’d rather get relegated playing entertaining football than get promoted playing like Lincoln and having to watch that every week. We are entertained at London Road most of the time which after all is what we go to watch football for isn’t it?

There is one question that has not been asked yet and is frankly the most important.

Who on earth is Will?

Like you I felt gutted when Davis and Etherington were sold mid-season, but that was the season we turned our form round and clinched promotion through the playoffs against Darlington. With regards to Marriott though how much of any sale will we have to give to Luton, as there is sure to be a sell on clause in the contract.

Darragh has mentioned 20%.

Didn't he say it was a 'standard' sell-on percentage? 20% sounds awfully high to me.

Apparently weak humour isn't the sole preserve of bristleposh after all.
