Laws Leaves Exit Door Open

Laws Leaves Exit Door Open

Owls boss Brian Laws has revealed that more players could be on their way through the Hillsborough exit door this summer, on top of the seven that have already been released.

Burton O'Brien and Rob Burch headed the list of out-of-contract players that were told they could find new clubs by Laws after the end of the season.

But now the Owls gaffer has insisted that he may well have to let further players go in order to bring new ones in, should a takeover not go ahead at S6 during the close season.

Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield: 'Nobody's come knocking on my door wanting to leave and why should they. But there's got to be some hard thinking to do.'

Kenny Lunt could be one name topping the list, with the midfielder seemingly not in Laws' plans after he was shipped out on loan to Crewe at the end of last season, while Laws had also agreed to sell Leon Clarke to Southend before the deal broke down.

I volunteer Lunt and Gilbert. Clarke should stay - he's just beginning to find his feet. I can't imagine he's on a massive wage unlike Mr Lunt

Last season's top scorer? Deon is awesome!

Deon is mediocre at best. We need to ship him out and bring in players of a standard capable of pushing for promotion. He's a good player for holding the ball up but his finishing is second rate.

Regarding the takeover - a few weeks back when they said it was "imminent" and you all wet yourselves, I cautioned not to believe it until it happens. Here we are nearing the end of May and nothing has happened. Nothing will happen. It will be another relegation battle with *****e sub-standard signings in the close season. I can't wait.

A little optimism may not be amiss, even without the takeover the difference between the playoffs and the relegation was what 20 points? How many games did we draw? What was wrong with last season? We shipped to many goals early on and had to chase the game but we have a very young but potential excellant defence. We also struggled to score all season, our strikers either languish on the sick/injured list or fail to make double figures in scoring charts. I'm afraid I'm in agreement with bedford and game, Burton's stregnths for us have been in leading the line but we badly need a finisher, from what I've seen not one of our strikers fulfils that role. Get a goalscorer and we're on our way to the playoffs! Can't wait.

Players like Tudgaya nd Burton are never going to be 20 goals a season players but their workrate and holiding and linking play can't be knocked can it at this level? Sodje and a fit Jeffers will be there to get ont he end of what Burton and Tudgay battle for up front. Don't think Deon is the best player in the league by any stretch but think you're being a tad harsh on him - he got some important goals for us this seasona nd he was out of favour for at least half of it and not getting a sniff!

Mark my words - if there is no takeover, we will be in another relegation battle. Remember what I said come the end of the season.
