Hi Ed, how are you doing?

Is there any truth in the story coming out of Greece that AEK have agreed personal terms with Ntcham?

If so, has he been released or will we receive a fee?

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't look like we will get any decent money as an actual fee for Ntcham but it would be foolish to not try and get some money knocked off future Barkas payments. Remember that players can have agreed terms with clubs before their present clubs have agreed a fee.}

I'd like him to stay on under the new manage rather than sell for the figures quote. There's definitely a player in there and for what we're going to get for him I'd take the chance he knuckles down for the new manager. Could be like a new signing.

Pod why do you want a player that doesn't want to be there to stay?

That is crazy, get rid of anyone that doesn't want to stay. In my opinion this was the biggest reason in our capitulation last season, too many players not really wanting to play for the jersey.

Thanks Ed, sooner we see the back of him the better but I hope we can realise some sort of remuneration before letting him leave.

{Ed007's Note - Take whatever we can get and hunt him.}

Get him to leave his strip and training gear. Call it even at that.

Rojac, my reason for wanting to keep him rather than almost give him away is because he's a first team player when on song. I know his attitude has been poor but it's amazing the difference a manager you respect can make so if he was prepared to put in the effort I'd give him another chance.
Would you like Rogis to get another chance or should he be away too? His work rate has been shocking for years yet a lot of fans seem prepared to give him a chance because he's worked under the new manager before!

Ntcham started his crap when BR was at the club and we turned down his move to Porto. He then stated he was too good for Scotland, get him away asap. As regards to Rogic I think he should be out the door too, I've never really liked the fact he is never fit and way too inconsistent. Rogic doesn't do enough for me, get rid of him too, and don't forget he wanted away too he obviously just didn't fancy the middle east or wherever it was.

It's the dawn of a new era at the club and we need to clear the decks and rebuild for the future and build it properly. Anyone not 100% committed is out the door and include the likes of Calmac in that too, if he wants to try something new let him go and try it. This was our biggest problem last season, too many players didn't really want to be there and if anything the mistake the board made was not moving them on. Although I understand why they didn't, going for 10IAR and punting the likes of eddy. The fans would have been in uproar, so they keep them and they don't perform and guess what the fans are in uproar haha

Get rid of everyone that wants away and then we start again, I said this at the start of last season and I think the crap show that followed proved I was right in saying so.

I read somewhere that AEK were willing to forgive any future payments for Barkas if they signed Ntcham. So would probably be just a swap, I think there is a decent player in Barkas and just needs time to settle, it couldn't have been any harder for him to come to us with C.V. and so many players unhappy at the club. Give him a chance to prove himself and get his confidence up.

I read that Ange has instructed that any player who isn't there for the long haul is to be shown the door. You'd imagine Ntcham would be top of that list.
