O'Grady's Wage Demands Prove A Stumbling Block For Addicks

CHRIS O'Grady's wage demands are believed to have brought an end to Charlton Athletic's interest in the Barnsley striker.

The Reds were reported to have agreed a £500,000 fee with last season's relegation rivals for their 15-goal player of the year, but the London club are now thought to have pulled out.

Other clubs have made enquiries for the 28-year-old, with Barnsley keen to offload high-earning players to reduce their wage bill.

Dale Jennings, Martin Cranie and Luke Steele are the other players who are expected to attract interest.

Why Steele? Nobody he'll want glass back couldn't catch cold

So the plan to try and do well next season is to get rid of the players most likely to help achieve that goal? GENIUS!!
A cost cutting exercise that will do more harm than good is not the way forward. Take a hit on profits, keep the players and at least try to look like you give a crap about getting promoted. The young talent we have is fantastic, but without a few experienced guys in the mix it will all fall apart.

Over the last 4 years things have been tight massive changes towards the haves. Now I wake up and see my disposable income. Barnsley FC will not be getting my season ticket money. Labour will never get my vote again. And I'm sick of shopping at Morrison's with with no staff on tills. Not much of a change you may say but at least I feel I've made my mind up myself
