Mido, Bunje and Naybet are all leaving the club over the summer as and when their contracts finally expire. Naybet joined two years ago and played a good few games for us scoring against the scum in the process. I will always rememebr his debut in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool. He had a great game and it was the first time since Mabbutt played that I saw someone actually marshall a defence. Bunje was the Serbian Trevor Brooking when he arrived but never quite lived up to all the hype. A solid servent of the club he was never really good enough. Lastly Mido will not be bought by the club. Although he did his job well he did make our play often one dimensional - i.e. hoof it up from the back and hope for a flick on. This season he looked fit and sharp but then went to the African Nations cup and was never quite the same since. Everyone from The Shelf would like to wisht hem well for the future and I bet I'm not the only one who is a bit annoyed by the official site who managed to write less than a quarter that I have on three first team players leaving.
