Gary Just Says Nay

Gary Just Says Nay

Sheffield United's Gary Naysmith has rejected the offer of a new contract to join League 1 side Huddersfield Town.

Naysmith, who returned at the end of the season to complete the final two games, was expected a new deal after his original three year contract ran out.

The former Everton man knew of the impending pay cut, and following lengthy talks, decided enough was enough, and decided to head West to the Galpharm Stadium, to bolster Lee Clark's promotion chasing squad.

Town manager Clark said: 'Gary is a massive signing - we have worked very hard to get him.

'He has got real experience at the very highest level, but the big thing for me is that from the very first day I met him you can tell he still has unbelievable desire and ambition.'

unbelievable!! did we want him or didn't we? thats the big question. This also proves that the wages that so may people supposed he was getting paid clearly wasn't no where near. huddersfield couldn't afford to pay any more than 5k a week so at best i would imagine that he was on 10k a week when he came to the lane and we have offered him new reduced terms on 5k a week. another player who has pulled good money out of the club without kicking a ******** ball all season!! it just gets worse and worse.

We wanted him off the wage bill. Huddersfield offered a 2 yr contract with a guarantee that he will play every week, United offered a one year deal. Thats another £750k+ off the bottom line, his Premiership contract was more like £15k a week BFL. Just Billy and Hendo (£14k) to get rid of and it will fund 5 incoming - so my informant tells me!

be right im sure jordan stewart will save the left back role for us!!!! sad day when any team in the league below can offer better contracts than we can...as glou says the club didnt really want him - in the same way that they wanted morgs quinn andmonts on the cheap but knew eventually that they needed players....ive no idea how we ended up like this - i know we paid some massive wages when NW took us up on players taht barely played (akinbiyi, short, flitcroft, dyer, lucketti, horsfield just off top of my head and then sun ji, beattie, hendrie, naysmith etc) but surely after all the sales we must be about even! Unless weve been paying these players off or after they have left....and do they really think signing bogdanovic is ok!

Boggy has been signed by the sponsors. I just hope the Ward info is wrong. If Hendo goes NO ONE on this site should complain, having spent all last season slagging him off!

Birch's statement on the Naysmith transfer on the club site clarifies things beautifully, we are all so much wiser now! doh. His written communication is about as good as his verbal skills. If ever a bloke needed a course in interpersonal skill, it him.

Like your in/out section Sheps - it clearly establishes what a shambles we seem to be in - starting to wonder if we will have 11 names to pencil in on the first day of next season!

I think there will be a few spare seats on the plane to Malta at this rate. PLEASE Blackwell, get Kyle Bartley back - I dont care if its on loan - for the season. Morgs is the only centre half we have, play Bartley alongside Morgs from the start and let the two build a partnership early doors.

Florida - I've heard similar stories from various sources. Only trouble is if (when) we sell Henderson and Sharp that will leave us with only 11 players (inc Bog)with any decent first team experience (ignore whether they are any good or not). Aother 5 players means we will have just 16 in our squad. Last season's experience shows we need a significantly bigger squad to have any chance of reaching the play-offs
