What happens if his career is ended first day of next season? He's earned good money, unless he's saved every penny i doubt he's in a position to retire now. I expect he'd like a big effing house and nice cars, probably one for his mum too.

These guys can earn a shit ton of money more than most if not all of us can imagine but why should he earn a lot less just to play for us? It wouldn't have been any different 40 years ago if the money had been there. What has Bright done that's dishonest, opaque or improper? Moreover what loyalty does he owe us? Ultimately his contract was allowed to get closer to it's expiry because he had yet to fully breakthrough and i would assume the club felt he had not earned the additional investment. I don't recall our loyalty to him being questioned or whether we'd been transparent about his future?I don't understand why the onus is always on the individual player to be a paragon of virtue.

I think it's a good move for him, a bold one and good on him for taking it. Fener seems to be on the rise again, a new experience with the chance of CL or at least Europa football and probably a few more quid in his bin. If this was any other field there would be no question he should make this move so why is it different in football? Hopefully, other players will see how we were a stepping stone and we'll be a more attractive destination when we're recruiting.
You sound a little like I would imagine his agent to sound. :wink:

To be honest I wasn't talking about BOS per se and intended to be a bit more generic. Football simply isn't like any other field, it's not like any other business, (entertainers aside) the rest of us aren't owned by our employers for a defined contractual period, we aren't tradeable assets whose value may diminish as that period elapses, we don't get to 'want away' have a sulk not do the job to the best of our ability and still get paid in full. The football 'business' model is a fairly daft one that gives rise to these issues of player investment, loyalty and contractual wranglings.

According to Dave McIntyre, he won’t be playing for the club again.

Assuming a 352 formation it will be interesting to see who Warburton picks in BOS's place at left wing back tomorrow. It could be Hamalainen, Willock, Thomas, Adomah or Wallace. At a stretch, it could even be Chair though I hope not.

Perhaps efforts will be redoubled to find a new player this month to replace BOS, but surely it makes sense to give fringe players like Willock or Thomas a chance.

Hamalainen I expect, but 352 seemed to be partly a response to full-backs not playing well. Could be Willock. I'd like to see him given a run out, at least.

I would consider trying Barbet at LWB on a short-term basis, but then again he is doing well at CB so probably not the ideal solution.

Sorry DEJ I'm not sure whether you are referring to the non selection of want away players or the season in general. If it's the latter I would say we have been consistently predictable if nothing else.

If we are going to be totally honest, BOS has been a bit of a disappointment. He has skills, and he has occasionally showed glimpses of those skills. What he hasn't done is consistently demonstrate he has what it takes to be a top player. There have been games when we've thought WOW! We have a real talent here, but there have also been many games (too many) where he has not had any influence on the game. The last game against Luton being a good example.

This season against Brentford he showed he had the beating of the left back, and he did that a handful of times. What he didn't do was use this to press the advantage. He put a superb ball in for Dykes to score, but didn't even attempt to do it again.

So, overall. Thanks BOS, there are a few good memories in there, but it could have been so much better. Lets see if Willock, Thomas or Adomah can do any better.

Good bye, and good luck.

Zenith, agree with all that, our benchmark for young impact-full players
is obviously Eze who won us matches by himself.

It's interesting that he was back watching us against Fulham,
somehow I can't see BOS doing that and there lies the rub.

As someone has already said: Put him on the bench for all away games but never play him. This is another player who's selfishness is likely to see him disappear up his own Aris without trace. Shame really, could've been very good for us. Will always remember that goal at Brum - made the the near hyperthermia worthwhile.

The former. We didn't allow Manning to play as he wasn't going to sign and said that was the process we were going to follow.
We contradicted that mentality with BOS. He said he was going to sign, but he didn't. If he'd had the same treatment as Manning, we wouldn't be letting him walk on a free.

We didn't miss BOS tonight.

Well done Chris Willock - a nice finish for his first QPR goal, and he worked hard all night.

Thanks DEJ, I was obviously a bit slow on the uptake. I guess the club saw it differently but BOS was always leading us up the garden path so you're probably right as seeing the club's approach as inconsistent.

I don't follow your point that if BOS had been treated in the same way as Manning he would not be leaving on a free.

Also, we'll receive the young player compensation if not a nominal fee should be leave this month. Nothing close to his value but at least something.
