Southampton release Lee Molyneux

Daily Echo: Southampton FC news from the Daily Echo Southampton FC news from the Daily Echo

SAINTS have released left back Lee Molyneux.

The defender had a year to run on his contract, but the decision has been made to let the 21-year-old go.

The Liverpudlian started his career at Everton before moving to Southampton under Jan Poortvliet in January 2009.

During his time at St. Mary's, he only made four appearances for Saints, and was last season behind both Dan Harding and Joseph Mills.

He spent part of the 2009/10 season at Port Vale on loan in League Two, but failed to make an impact there.

The recent capture of Ryan Dickson pushed Molyneux even further down the pecking order for the left back slot.

I was quite impressed with him when he joined us. Wasn't it around the time JP Size (I know that's not how it's spelt but that's how it's pronounced and I can't be arsed to google it) was brought in and for a few weeks it looked as though we had a semi-capable defence (or at least two players who could head the ball)?

Pulis signed a 2 year contract on 28th August 2008.
With an option of a third year.
Unless his contract is paid up he has every right to stay.
I would think Molyneux has a club lined up,that is why he is leaving early.

He has never played for us! Another crap signing of the Lowe era.

This was to be expected, with the surplus of LBs we have now with Dickson, Harding, Mills and reserve options. Best of luck, Lee.

I just wish AP and NC would get on with more signings, it seems there is always plenty of news concerning player releases and then silence on any personnel coming the other way!
Yes I know we've signed Dickson but what about mid-field and up front, time is getting on and we need some strength in depth!
Would be nice if we got Antonio back but I won't hold my breath on that one, perhaps AP has something up his sleave! Lets hope so! COYR! :o)

See my previous comments.
You cannot just get rid of someone who is on contract.
Even footballers have employment rights,just like everyone else.

Become a Postman in the Royal Mail, work at half speed, go home three hours early, and take as much sick as you want, then strike for unreasonable terms when they ask you to work your hours

Tony in Liberia says...

And then, when you do go to work, and you have a parcel to deliver, just fill in one of those "you were out when I called" notices and push it through the door and run off to get to your t-break on time rather than actually do your job and deliver it ... note the bitter sarcasm and mouthed comments like "b*st*rds" and so on. Not that I'm bitter or anything, but is it so much to ask a postman to deliver things? I mean, if they don't like delivering, why get a job as a postie? I don't like fish, so I wouldn't work in Portsmouth - it's not rocket science. Oh, and b*st*rds again.

I agree with a previous post here. When are we going to sign some players that will take us forward from last season? If we lose Antonio and Waigo then we are clearly weaker than last season.

In respect of Jaidi, I'd definitely keep him and I don't agree with someone who said 'get rid'!!

I wonder if the problem is that clubs
are asking over the odds for players
and NC ,quite rightly, is not going to
give way on that score. However, a
little worrying as the pre season
training starts in about 10 days time.
