Kanu should get a year long contract with the option of another year to follow if he makes a certain amount of performances again, not my vote, yours – and these findings from Chix’s poll are thoughts I do not agree with at all myself to be honest!

Quite what the score is with ‘King Kanu’ is anybodies guess; a contract has been on the table since January. He says he wants to stay, we say we want to keep him yet still for some reason this remains unsigned… then suddenly recently came the reported ‘give me the 2-years that I deserve.’ A feeling of déjà vu or what!

How true this is remains to be seen, but he has since said that only a few ‘minor details’ need sorting, but he will sign the deal – no doubt well into pre-season training so he can avoid as much of this as is humanly possible…

At the end of the day he got his own way last summer, we buckled under the pressure and gave him what he wanted – this summer we are in the dominant position, so if he insists on getting a 2-year contract this time we must call his bluff, and follow through with our threats that he takes what is on offer or he goes, and if he does go what better way to go than scoring the winning goal in the cup final eh!

Do not be greedy Mr Kanu, we agreed a fair deal with you last summer, now honour your half of the deal or move on to someone that will give you 2-years, if anyone will… it is quite simply that simple really isn’t it.

  • What the poll asked – If you were Harry & Peter what would you say to Kanu?

  • How you voted – 2 years – How about one with a clause 38%, 2 years – It’s one or nothing 21%, 2 years – There’s the door – bye! 16%, 2 years – let’s make it 3 12%, 2 years – Think yourself lucky to get 1 8%, 2 years – Oh not again – just leave now 3%, 2 years – of course your highness 1%, 2 years – Oh ok why not 1%

  • Current Poll – We are building up our striking options, so we at least ‘appear’ to have goals in us next season…

    Can our strike force be as potent as we hope, either way who will net us the most goals this season – this is what russellm wants to know with this – ‘Assuming the transfer targets arrive; who will be the leading goal scorer this season?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys…
