Thomas moves for "a small fee"
Wait for it. Only if he plays a number of games! Blimey, he must have impressed Harry Redknapp in that 17 minutes he had at Stamford Bridge the weekend. (more
A small fee. The fire sale continues. How an earth did he go from a £2,500,000 rated player to a small fee, even if he only had a year on his contract left? Just shows that those agents' videos are all they're cracked up to be! I didn't read anywhere that we got an initial fee as part of the loan agreement, but that is another hefty wage of the books. One would now assume ZZ, Gray and Weaver are the only players earning more than 10k a week.
Thomas by only signing a one-year contract also puts himself at risk, and one would hope he gets back to playing as well as we know he can if he has any hope of being at Fratton Park beyond next summer.
Meanwhile it was good news, bad news yesterday down at Sparrows Lane. Therry Racon's prognosis
is that he will be out for 3 months and Grant Basey is carrying a slight hamstring strain but it has come to light that Chris Dickson
has signed an extension to his contract plus Darren Ambrose and Svetoslav Todorov came through a reserve game last night
. The team line-up emphasising our new waif-like squad.
