Look at the accounts released this week.
Our most valuable assets need tied down or else sold for big profit. That’s the fact of where we are.
My personal thoughts are, keep them (tav and goldson) as long as we can and sell others like borna Alfie kamara etc. We don’t need to sell every good player. Especially when there’s a real chance we will be playing CL football next seasonGoldson turns 28 next month, Tav is already 29, and Barisic was 28 last month. Everyone has seen our accounts, we need to generate more cash and these 3 players need to be sold within the next year or they will become unsellable for decent money. That's the dilemma either sell when they have value or keep them for another 4 years
Not every player needs to have a sold to sign put on them. Success is part of football. Tav and or Goldson might be worth more to us now in terms of keeping rather than selling. What price would you put on a league title this season? Or qualifying for the Champions League group stages next season? Both might be key to that goal.Goldson turns 28 next month, Tav is already 29, and Barisic was 28 last month.

This is what I was getting at. They're both well worth extensions and hopefully will sign them, but if that doesn't happen it would be catastrophic to have them both leave for nothing under FOC.The OP has a point and at no point did he say sell in January
We don’t have to sell in January but if they don’t extend contracts we would need to try and offload and recoup money on Goldson next summer
Tav only cost £200k but we really need to have a plan and I’m sure Ross Wilson will be working on it behind the scenes
The plan must be to cash in and not let them leave the following season on free transfers
Tav is worth more to us than what we would get for him.
Goldson will go next summer I reckon for another crack at the premiership.
How many will want to leave though when we will have champions league football next season?
I dont think he was saying sell them in January, but is correct in saying we cannot let contracts run down on our top players. You are also correct saying we dont know if the club have approached them or not, but ffs, it's a fans forum for discussing things like this.First of all ye dont sell two important members of the team nearly halfway in the season.
Second, we dont know if CG or Tav have been approached as to deal in new contacts so its not fact.
