'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Henry set for QPR medical

Things can turn around in football in an instant. Just when we thought Karl Henry's move to QPR had collapsed, it's reportedly back on again.

Talks regarding Karl Henry's proposed move from Wolves to QPR looked to have broken down.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Head Coach Kenny Jackett had said that the midfielder had previously held talks with the London club, but they appeared to have struggled to progress to a point where a deal could be finalised.

Reports in London last week first suggested that Henry could be set to join QPR following their relegation from the Premier League last season.

The 30-year-old is of course surplus to requirements at Molineux with head coach Kenny Jackett keen to offload him and his higher wages and three-year-deal.

It's unclear if Wolves would let Henry go on a free transfer or would demand a fee, but the main aim if he is not in Jackett's plans is to get him off the wage bill.

'I don`t know what`s happened on a personal level and I don`t know that it`s irretrievable, but QPR have been interested in Karl Henry and no deal has been done.' Jackett told the media over the weekend.

However things now look to have progressed with Sky Sports reporting that Karl Kenry is set for a medical at Loftus Road.

As important as it is to reduce the wage bill (and more important to flush the club clean of the fifth columnists in the ranks), letting a 30-yr-old who's under contract go on a free transfer is just wrong. Just because we don't want him, doesn't mean we have to give him away for nowt. Plus, as is usually the form in free-transfers, the player would expect his agent to negotiate a nice fat lump sum as a signing-on fee i.e if we don't take a fee from QPR, a similar amount will go straight into Henry's skyrocket-and that's even wronger! I would just like to say, there's no way anybody at QPR could have been watching him last season and then think he has any skill set that could possibly be of use to them.

the only way that this guy is attractive to other clubs is on a free transfer. basically the transfer fee is going on his wages. If we wanted a fee too then the deal is too expensive for other clubs, lets face it big clubs who aren't bothered by such situations don't want him, but 2 bit clubs like QPR will. If we tried to get a fee then we would be stuck with him. So our fee is basically the saving in removing him from the wage bill.

If they're going to let him go free, then what has been the point in continuing to pay him? He's been picking up in the region of 40-60k a month since the season ended, which they could have avoided by cancelling his contract, or "sacking" him. He'd have been free anyway but without having been a cost burden. I assumed that he, SW, JOH and RJ were being kept under contract so as the club could sell them. If they continue to pay them and then let them go for free, then that just adds to the list of management mistakes regarding them.

The only way Henry is going is on a free end of and if thats what it takes to get rid of the rest so be it, the longer it goes on we pay more on wages the reason they are still here is that there wage demands are high but if the fee is wavered then they might get snapped up,and the reason Henry got paid for all this time is because he has a contract as do the others and if so they could see the whole season sat on a beach sun bathing if they wish, so either we get rid quick, freebies if thats what it takes because contracts can only be cancelled by mutual consent the wolves would be breaking the law otherwise and would face lawsuits galore its the law of the jungle and sometimes you make a loss to go forward i would love to see them sacked but you cannot, football is a different animal and contracts are not worth a jot thats why sometimes its better to cut your losses and move on and move on we must if we want to get back were we belong and lets pray that the management make no more mistakes and so far i think Jacket as already proven his worth, stuff the board as I am concentrating on supporting our kids the kids we all wanted to see and maybe a big buyer might come along and then who knows

"The Championship is a tough league and it sounds like Harry wants to bring in the kind of players that will get this club out of the division..." Is anybody else reminded of Tommy Doc's promise to take Villa out of the old Second Division?
WonderingWolf
I agree with d09. It might be a bitter pill to swallow for M&M but sometimes you have to cut your losses. It really doesn't look like anyone wants these players and lets face it.....who can blame anyone. Put them on free transfers and ship them out.
Rustmonkey
Well, it's just as well JM negotiates the deals and not you lot- we'd be 1million worse off if that was the case.
WonderingWolf
"The only way Henry is going is on a free end of".... Ooops! Or we negotiate a deal for a fee based on appearances. Looks like there was more than one way, after all. "End of"? Hahahahaha.
