Didn't Charlton do well out of that deal, joined on a free and sell him for nearly half a million a year later. Prutton and Douglas in midfield for Swindon should be a good combination. I wish them both well, I really liked both of them during there time at Elland Road.

Looks like we should have kept Fraser with .5m changing hands

I couldn't understand why we let him go especially as we replaced him with Crowe and Bromby!
dazza71
Likewise paid 2 men to do what Fraser did, neither did it very well either

we should have kept him 450k we have thrown away well done papa smurf

Was captain as well for a while wasn't he? could there have been an off the field reason for him leaving because he has always looked good when I have seen him.
SFC Forever
didn't we let him go to save money on his premiership wages? If so we've no doubt saved more already for a player who wasn't in the first team at the time and wouldn't attract a fee with his wage demands?! not sure what else we could have done?

I think that was the reason he had to go, he was on huge wages at Elland Road.
dazza71
Yea his wages were from the prem/championship days. Charlton took a punt on him for one season by matching his wages and now they cant afford him. The saints have money so i guess they will be going up next season. he is a good player and we miss him alot.

Good luck to Richardson!!!

We should never have let either of them go.
