Time for both parties to move on.
Injuries finished him with us.Let's be honest here, he was a flop & I'm glad he's out the door
Relatively speaking, for a club in the process of rebuilding where money is thin on the ground, when you add him to the likes of Barton, Senderos, Kranjcar, Alves, Peña and Herrera, he’s another who has failed to provide any sort of return whatsoever.Did you believe this at the time of his signings?
At this is before I ask you what Sadiq or Prodan or Rozenthal or even Kuznetsov were if Rossiter is a disastrous signing.
Good post.He’s still a young lad. Davis and Arfield won’t be around forever so there will be spaces that open up in the midfield. At the moment he won’t play but getting another season of games under his belt may see him start to fulfil some of his potential. Gerard has rubbished the talk of McCrorie going, Docherty has come back into the fold so never say never. Loaning players in and out is going to be a big part of our strategy moving forward.
Could just be to free up his wage for another player to come in I imagine similar deals will occur for Holt and possibly Dorrans etcSurprised it’s season long tbh, if only until January we could have sold him for some form of return. Season long means he’s a free agent at end of that and we’ve had zero ROI on his tenure.
Are you genuinely expecting an orderly queue of teams to line up to pay what is probably (for them) top dollar in wages and possibly a fee for a player who has made a grand total of 33 appearances in 3 seasons due to injury, the vast majority of which were in the last few months?True but look at this Rossiter deal. Only able to get him away on a loan deal where will be still be paying a significant % of wages. Unfortunately can't get him off wage bill entirely yet.
I don’t know if I’d have said what AWK said, but I’d be lying if I said it hadn’t entered my mind that maybe part of Rossiter’s issue was psychological, particularly when he goes on loan elsewhere and can suddenly put the games together.Spot on.
It’s nothing against Rossiter, but the fact is that he’s a highly paid non-contributor and we simply don’t need him.
It's a good move for him to rebuild his career. A level up from last season at Bury and also very close to home. I hope it works-out for him, he seems like a smashing lad. But it is time for all parties to move on.Surely he could do better than to team up with Barton. Won't be surprised if he ends up at QPR.
I’d suggest bracketing Rossiter, who was quoted as the same opportunistic signing as Dembele, with those you’ve mentioned is fundamentally wrong.Relatively speaking, for a club in the process of rebuilding where money is thin on the ground, when you add him to the likes of Barton, Senderos, Kranjcar, Alves, Peña and Herrera, he’s another who has failed to provide any sort of return whatsoever.
We’ve arrested the wastefulness under Gerrard, but before that we were all over the shop under Warburton, Caixinha and Murty.
