Although Ive never liked Cole as a person hes been a great Blue and was maybe the best left back there is but I didnt lose sleep when he left as I always thought it was about the money/fame/ego for him.

So Im not overly surprised Cashley didnt renew as he wanted to get some media hype/money at pastures new but Im really surprised Lamps didnt renew his even if it was probably a year like JTs who you know wants to be here.
I know its his life/career/decision to make and us fans shouldnt be so emotional about it but thats how football grabs ya. You go see them paying a fortune week after week all round the world and I suppose we feel theyre a part of us and they owe us something. But at the end of the day I suppose they just see it as a job and its just the fans with the passion and loyalty.
