Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping
at 16:28:26

Unfortunately Championship clubs (let alone very average ones) cannot just keep their best players indefinitely.

Keeping Wickham and Mings just wasn't realistic - both had the opportunity to go and play Premiership football (widely known that Wickham trebled his wages too) and we had extremely good money put on the table. The £8.1m potentially rising to £12m received for Wickham is still the highest fee we've ever received for a player. The Mings deal was effectively £8m + Pitman + Ryan Fraser on loan for a season. Both good deals. Jewell frittered the Wickham money on wasters like JET and Chopra.

The others left for a variety of reasons. The likes of Murphy and Garner wanted to leave - hard to keep a player in those circumstances and again, we received decent money for both. Leadbitter and Delaney, I don't think too many were overly fussed about either of those going. Rhodes - not us cashing in, a car crash manager made a terrible decision.

Waghorn is the one that I do agree with, I said at the time we should build our side around him and offer him similar money to Bart to try and keep him here.
