Some lack of reality on this thread. When some of the public meetings were held (Old No 7, etc) Patrick pointed out that average wages in League One were c. £1,800 per week, but in the Championship, £9K per week. We did not know in advance how we were going to fare in this division. If we had offered Conor et al a long term contract on £1.8K per week they would (rightly) not have signed. If we offered a long term contract on £9K per week they would have bitten our hands off. But if we did the latter and then struggled to survive we are potentially headed for financial difficulties again. If Conor leaves us for a better offer in the Summer, not a man jack of us can begrudge it after what he's done for us. He deserves his chance to play for a bigger club and/or at a higher level. He owes us nothing. He is, and will remain a club legend. We shall have to rely on our (very successful) policy of identifying latent talent and developing it with the hope of the products serving us as well as Conor has. And that's it.
