One comment on “Irons clear-out but Taylor, McCartney set for deals

  1. I must admit i do question some of Big Sams signings – George McCartney to get a new contract ? omg how many times was he caught out of position this season – far too many.

    Downing is useless and if Sam cant see that then it is of big concern.
    The Italian guys are not up to standard , simple. Nolan (god bless him) his legs have gone. We need 4-5 quality new players.

    I would like us to go in for Jordan Rhodes who scores goals at any level.
