I'm going to play devils advocate a bit here but it is something I kinda feel.

People berate players who didn't want to sign temporary contract extensions to see out the remainder of the extended season. But does this not work both ways? Contracts are contracts. Clubs were also able to release players who's contracts were up who they didn't want to keep and thus saving on their wages and those players being out of work. Don't hear people blaming clubs for this.

Football like it or not is a big buisness and their is little place for sentimentality or loyalty when money is involved.

In fairness to him, had he signed a 3 year deal with Bournemouth on £67k/week, and a 25% wage cut on relegation, he'd be pretty gutted right now. Especially with them selling Ake so they don't 'need' to sell Fraser. Even more so if he'd torn his hamstring and was out for 3 months like many, many players did during this period. He may have helped them stay up but most of their defeats were comprehensive.

His career would be in tatters at that point because you get into the Wilf situation - no-one is paying big ££ for a player in their late 20s right now who is off form or, in this case, would have been playing Championship football.

Through anything but the rose tinted specs of a football fan, it's really hard to objectively argue that he didn't do the right thing for him.

The Zaha one is frustrating because he didn't pull his finger out when he is guaranteed £100k+ a week for the next 3 years. Fraser didn't have that security. He has one big contract left in his career - hard to blame him for wanting to secure it.

I don't care too much about his antics at Bournemouth. Does a fully fit, on-form, determined Fraser help keep us up? You bet he does. And he can play in way that suits Benteke, which could be huge.

The money is so difficult to assess after the impacts of Covid. That's for our beancounters to figure out.

My sentiments entirely.

Never liked playing against Bournemouth with Fraser which tells me I wouldn’t mind him on our team.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....
