    Hutton not even on the bench?

    A few weeks ago we were all surprised at Brucie letting K Jones go for not much more than we paid for him. Now though after seeing how Hutton is being treated at White Hart Lane I'm glad we let Kenwyne go. You can understand a club wanting to get a good price for a player but Spurs were just being plain greedy expecting 9/10 million (was quoted in the papers) for a player who hasn't even made it to the bench this season (I don't think he is injured). If you don't rate a player and he wants out let him go. Proper big clubs like Man U or even Liverpool would just take the loss rather than than just see him lose value in the Reserves, Sunderland have problem with clubs being able to match the wages a la Nosworthy but at least we let them out on Loan. . I mean 6 million will seem a bit steep for a player who hasn't played for 9 months in January. If Bardsley goes in Jan I'd still like to see him back though.
