So farewell Radoslav Kovac, Upton Park non-legend, who has departed to FC Basel. He never looked up to the Premiership and it was always a mystery why Zola signed him having already seen what he was like during a loan spell. Yes, he had the odd decent game like against Man United in the Carling Cup, but for most of his time couldn't pass the ball straight.
More upset to see Da Costa depart for Lokomotiv Moscow as he could have done a job in the Championship.
Overall, we're making good progress on the wage bill, having shifted 12 players. Loanees Obinna, Keane and Bridge have been returned to sender, Dyer, Upson, Jacobsen, Spector and Gabbidon were all out of contract while Ba has gone to Newcastle and Hitzlsperger has had his contract terminated.
If nothing else we'll hopefully have a new team and a new mindset next season.
