Thats a spurious argument though. You may as well say we've signed Superman Spiderman and Adolf Hitler. Neither scenario is going to happen.
I was been facetious on purpose. The point I'm trying to prove is that if there is a clearly better person (in the coaches mind), why would you not grant a player a release/tell them they are not in the teams plans. I think it's terrible to force them to play for feeder teams, effectively stunting their growth as footballers, if not ending their careers. I chose those players because there's no argument that they're better than what we have got, that's all. Otherwise this would turn into a Wade v Hohaia argument, which is not what I want to get into.
