Just as “in a business” the new management gets the chance to correct/re-organise the work of the previous one ie the one who signed these players to these long terms deals. I am not too sure on the statute of limitations for blaming the outgoing manager - you know the one who said his job was done.
As disappointed as I am with Blake & RCG going, it has just been a continuation of previous seasons eg CHN being ‘sold’ to dogs etc, all conveniently blamed on salary cap, the rules of which were well established.
At least these recent ‘move-alongs’ have been relatively bloodless, unlike the shameful exploits of Gould getting rid of fine young men in Gordon, Lewis, Grant, Coote etc when he arrived and found they were on good contracts & demanded they take paycuts & then set about destroying their characters, whilst bemoaning the actions of previous management in signing them to over priced, long terms deals, only for him to do the same thing & then be gone.
I suggest we have to give Cleary the opportunity to put his team/squad together, accepting that there will be pain in the interim. Perhaps we could be the #1 sporting club in the country this time around
