One thing that became clear to me yesterday is that we have some deadwood in the team, and that we have to be brutal and get rid of those players that do not perform to the high standards we expect on a consistent basis, and fail to justify their wages.
We need to bring in players that are capable of playing to a high standard week in week out and the five players below simply do not do that.
What can i say, I know he can be great but it is not regular enough and when we need him the most that is the exact time he goes missing, it is now time to offload the German and not only will it remove a huge wage burden we will get a decent amount of money for him.
He is seriously mediocre, he has never shown that he is up to the standard we need and yesterday proved that beyond any doubts, not sure what we would get for him but whatever amount would be a bonus.
Another player that is not consistent enough and I am certain we can find a replacement that would be more effective for the money he is paid on a weekly basis.
He was supposed to be one for the future but not now, he is already 22 years of age and there is far better out there that can do a much better job than he has done for us.
A disaster waiting to happen, the one thing he does not inspire is confidence and to think he cost us in excess of £35 Million and if there was ever a player not worth his transfer fee it is Mustafi.
You have to think we would raise over £100 Million for those five and that there would be a lowering of the wage bill close to £750k per week so imagine the quality we could bring in with that sort of money, I mean, it cant be hard to replace that lot.
