Seems pretty obvious SWFC don't plan on keeping Hunt, so you can understand why they might want to avoid paying his wages if he's going to be on the way out. Publicity in the local media is to put pressure on us to either stump up the money to try and sign him/pay all his salary or negotiate a better deal for themselves. Oh, I suppose it could also help other clubs become aware that he's available to be taken on loan/permanently.

I suspect that pen penfras is spouting bullshite to try and agitate, as per usual.

Quoted from barrattstandman
Surely with 6 out we can afford to pay for Hunt for 5 months . Then still have enough for other signings . The fans need something to get them interested as it seems this season has been allowed to evaporate and everyone will only have next season to look forward to . Some may say paying more than others are earning isn't right but I'm not sure as their thought could be yes he's good and if he helps us to more wins then we all gain through win bonuses.


I know what you're saying, and i do rate Hunt as a player, but at the end of the day we're talking about a player that has been in the squad for all of the matches during our bad run, apart from the last.

From what I understand, he's on less than £1k a week, significantly less than our sub goalkeeper, yet it's too expensive to keep one of out most influential players of the season.

It's Fenty all over again!

Don't know what he's on - but if we had to pay 100% of his wages it may have taken him over our pay cap?

It's hard to speculate without all the facts, but we did try to sign him permanently, so it's got to be down to either money, or his unwillingness to commit to us beyond this season, or maybe a mixture of the two.

If he is on a good wedge there, it wouldn't go down well with the senior pro's if he was brought in on more money than them, given his relative inexperience, so it could simply be down to squad harmony.

I don't know, I'm just speculating like everyone else, but it seems PH wanted to keep him and tried to keep him. It didn't happen for some reason, so we have to put that to bed and move on.

Would a re-signing of Hunt in any format to season end break at what level other players are being paid?

Is there proof of his salary? Hurst must know to not want to pay it !

Would the player himself want to come back here?

Although he is not a giant in size, he appears to have good attacking in his locker, and his free kick and corner deliveries can be deadly.

Can we find an equal or better replacement?

Football Manager has him earning £800 / week, so there you have it in absolute, cast iron fact. It also values him north of £600k, which is of course ludicrous.

Still, I can’t imagine a mid-table League One club paying their under-23s a great deal more than £1k a week. If they are then it just highlights how many light years we are away from that level.

Can't understand the reluctance to pay Hunt his true value, when we are throwing money down the drain on two players that rarely make the bench, where's the logic in that

We are also talking about a dozen or more players being part of that bad run, do we get rid of them as well?

Change the f@cking record will you!!..when will you get it into your thick skull the new owners are nothing like that prat!..
Show me the proof he's on less than a £1k a week...a photocopied payslip should suffice!..


I have no idea what wages are paid these years but a young lad that has hardly touched their first team to be on over £52,000 a year? as John Moore would say "crikey"
