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

Transfer Balancing Act For Boothroyd

With three permenant signings so far in January, Colchester boss Aidy Boothroyd freely admitted that a number of players will be heading for a Weston Homes Community Stadium exit in the coming weeks.

Troublesome forward Jamie Guy, full-backs Matt Lockwood and Alan Maybury, along with want-away midfielder David Perkins all look set to leave if a deal suits the U's.

'I have got to balance the books. If I want to bring people in, then I've got to sell some as well,' the former Watford manager explained, speaking to the EADT.

If those mentioned did all leave, I wouldn't lose any sleep, although I would rather Perkins didn't go to Southend (Its a matter of principal!!!)

Yeah, me too, they're not needed, we have better, so may as well go basically! Up the U's!

I would also guess that Lockwood and Maybury are two of the higher earners aswell
ooohhJohnnieJackson
Yeah, not sure about Maybury, but reckon Lockwood is on a tidy amount. Aslo with Baldwin going - he's on good money - so that will free up some wages...
