Some Interest in Peters
Tuesday, 14th Aug 2012 06:00
Boss Paul Jewell says there has been some interest in Canadian international Jaime Peters, who he has told can leave the club. The 25-year-old’s representatives are understood to be in talks with the Blues about settling the final year of his contract.
Jewell said: “Jaime’s free to go. I’ve told Jaime he doesn’t figure. There have been one or two clubs interested in Jaime, but as yet nothing’s happened.”
In January, SPL St Johnstone were interested in the midfielder or full-back, but the three-club rule prevented Peters, who was on loan at Bournemouth earlier in the season, from making the switch.
The Town boss has also said that Nathan Ellington is surplus to requirements but with the Blues short on options the 31-year-old will be involved in the squad facing his first Football League club this evening: “There’s been no progress so far on Duke and he’ll be in the 18 against Bristol Rovers.”

if we are as thin on the ground as PJ states then why get rid of players now, do as others do and wait until the transfer window, see who we get in and then put him out on loan, doesn't all make sense to me, if your going to get rid then fine just wait until we have some replacements in, we have got Jimmys wages off the payroll so that should help financially

Because we have not got any money Clivewoodsleftpeg. Evans and Clegg are trying to run the club into the ground, and PJ and Keane are their scapegoats.

Maybe the club are telling the players the truth and not using them.
I would not be happy if my boss told me i have a future and then brought someone else in to do my job and then said bye bye off you go.
The players we are letting go have not really played for the club in the last year so I see no point in keeping them just to plug gaps feel we should player the youngsters rather than player who will leave the club next year at the latest

A few years ago I thought peters wasn't that bad. Since then he hasn't been played an has been left to let his contract run down. I can't understand how he has got so bad as I honestly thought he was ok when I saw him play!

Off topic but does anyone else think Peters looks like Sweep the grey dog off The Sooty Show?
Will remember your effort Jaime- thought you were a decent player when given a run, so often dropped randomly. All the best.

I feel for Peters - every time he had some success under Jim or Roy he then got dropped/injured (e.g. looked like he might solve our LB problem after his performances at the end of 08/09 but never played there again, started at CM in the 4-5-1 first game of 09/10 but we gave up on that formation straight away), and it appears that PJ has never rated him at all, with the last nail in the coffin being that dreadful game against Northampton last season.
Given he can play pretty much anywhere on the pitch, might have been useful to keep around (especially as we have little in the way of cover across the board at the moment), but PJ doesn't want to play him, so not really fair to keep him around.

Those of you who declare what a bad decision it is to let players go before we have what you consider to be worthy repalcements - have you considered the prospects for the players themselves? It is an option to hang on to them and then ditch them a bit further down the road but their chances of finding another club are much better better if they're freed up now. Perhaps PJ and maybe SC and ME are a bit more cosiderate that some 'supporters'. Also, players do talk amongst themselves and who manages a club and how they treat their players will play a part in influencing a player to sign. Having said that, offering a fat enough salary will probably overide just about anything.

I disagree about the replacements thing having thought about it.
Peters even as a backup will NOT play. He's not good enough, never was.
Get rid of all the dead wood that sits and remains from previous managers. Something that should have been done a while ago. We still need signings though.

What is the point of the three-club rule?
|Steve_ITFC_Sweden added 14:37 - Aug 14|
The club is obviously in an economic squeeze, and you can't really complain about that. In such a climate, we simply don't have the room to carry anyone. I like Jaime Peters, but if the manager who makes the decisions doesn't think he's going to figure, then it only makes sense to replace him wíth someone who will.
