Well better late than never the results of a poll that ran over the summer asking if Wes Hoolahan and Kaspars Gorkss would be leaving Blackpool FC. Well they did and you predicted it with 77% of votes saying the pair would leave. An optimistic 12% thought the pair would stay at the club, I’m guessing those voters didn’t know about the release clauses in the players contracts.
Our new poll asks for the pick of the new lads, 12 to choose from.
Well it was coming and Wes has departed for Norwich so we’ll see him next year. Hopefully he’ll get a great reception as he was one of the players that really played a big part in our promotion and importantly will be remembered for that penalty against Preston.
As part of the deal Matthew Gilks has joined, he’s a Goalkeeper so he’s going to be proving some competition for Rabs in goal.
After yesterday’s post that QPR have made a bid for Kaspars Gorkss there are rumors that QPR will make a bid for Wes Hoolahan for, wait for it……£375K. There was an article on EDP 24 a Norfork based website that QPR will make a bid for Wes but there may be a issues with the whole transfer of Hoolahan from from Livingston with Fifa yet to decide if we still need to pay a fee to Livingston of around £75K. So the £375K would be more than the release clause of £250K in Wes’s contract and the extra money would then possibly go to Livi.
What is evident that by next week we could lose our best two players to QPR for just over half a million quid. As we know from Brett Ormerod we won’t see any of this money, sorry to be D+G but it’s not looking good, but it’s not a signed deal…..until we see the pair in the blue and white of QPR they are still Blackpool players.
