You bolded the part about me speculating whether Moshiri might not be willing to bankroll any Brands signing this window if he's planning on cutting him loose at the end of the season. My post had nothing to with Brands being unable to shift the deadwood. As I mentioned in my response to you, the deck has largely been cleared to facilitate recruiting an attacker at the very least on a loan deal due to wages saved.
As for your point about Carlo not giving young players chances, I agree that he should probably have found more minutes for Gordon and Nkounkou at certain points this season but I'm struggling to think of anyone else who you could accuse him of overlooking? Simms maybe, who I cannot say I have ever seen play. We didn't have a single striker on the bench against Newcastle and one extra bench space that we chose not to fill. I'm guessing he just doesn't rate any of them.
