Hallelujah! Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! Hall-e-lu-jah! Anglo-Saxan Chronicle 38


As I explained in a previous post (‘Determination as leverage‘, 21 July 2017), the FC Saxan squad is besmirched by the presence of a number of players with low determination. Time to act.

But how liquid will the Moldovan transfer market prove?

Praise be! The answer is, pretty liquid. Of the seven players with a determination attribute of 4 (out of 20) or less, I find I can get five out the door with ease — three on immediate loans, one on a loan commencing mid-season, and one through mutual termination.

Of the two I’m left with, one (a striker) looks an otherwise-decent player who might be difficult to replace, so I’ve come to terms with retaining him. The other can’t even be dynamited out. No-one wants him on a free, no-one wants him on loan – and he refuses an offer of mutual termination.

Still, at the beginning of the process, I’d have settled for one dead weight.

Now, of course, I have a small squad and need urgently to bring in some fresh blood. That might not be easy, but I’ll worry about that tomorrow.

Today is a day for celebration.
