'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wotte: One or two may go

Manager Mark Wotte is willing to let one or two players depart St. Mary's this summer.

Grzegorz Rasiak and Marek Saganowski have both stated that they want to leave the south-coast club following their relegation to League One.

Wotte understands that you have to let a few players go in order to balance the books with the cash-strapped Saints.

Speaking to the official website he said: 'When you get relegated from the Championship you must accept that you are going to lose one or two players and I'm not just talking about Grzegorz Rasiak or Marek Saganowski, who have both expressed an interest in leaving the club. They can go, though, because they are too expensive for League One anyway.

'Nobody else has come out and said they want to leave, but we must also accept that we have a lot of footballing talents who may influence the financial side of things. One or two may go, and if they do, then you have to try and find replacements for less money.'

Like Wotte says, they are both too expensive for League One anyway. It will obviously be hard to swallow seeing them both go, but that's life. I really hope we can keep the bulk of our team together and show League One what we're made of!

Kelvin, Surman, Saga, BWP, Euell, Lallana, McG, Bart, Dyer, Rasiak is more than one or two! All will currently be looking for new clubs as they will not want to be in L1. Add that to already loosing Skacel and Smith, leaves the cupboard a little more than bare!

Yeah I know, things are looking very dim. I just don't know what the club can do to persuade the players to stay? I mean, they are offering them new contracts, but with less wages! I wonder what they are going to make of that...

Spoke to my 'sauce' yesterday who told me that there are clubs all over some of our players - and other players who are struggling to move on! It seems that our youngsters are attracting attention rather than our older professionals - so some might just have to bite the bullet and sign for less!
