Amidst discussion with Bobby Charlton, Nathaniel had decided on the players who's contracts had to be terminated due to the fact they had way too much players. He was on his way to announce it to the players and he was dreading it. He knew it was unlikely some of them would show up anyway as they hadn't turned up to any training sessions.

But sometimes you have to do what's in the interest of the club. There had been too many players, that was true but there was another reason he had had to get rid of them.
