Released/Retained List

Post by redandbluescb » Mon Jun 07, 2021 7:52 pm

Other than teams in the play offs why are we the only team in England not to announce a retained list.

Aren’t our players more or less free agents now? Assuming that’s the case, until any of them sign up again then a retained list won’t be necessary.

We see other clubs already starting to announce signings, like Woking today and Chesterfield.

I have no doubt that we will soon hear that there is no rush at all to get players in and that we are already talking to current players about resigning.

How many players do we have under contract ? Not many if I recall. Does this mean all others will leave unless we secure their services.

I hope we don’t leave it to the last minute again and I hope we don’t have to start all over again building almost an entire team from scratch.

Personally I doubt we will issue one, or of we do it will probably be just before the season starts when we all know its contents (as happened last year).

As mentioned I don’t think we have a single player contracted for next year so it would be a bit embarrassing to give a list of players that we’ve offered contracts to, only for many of them to leave. There may also be some complex negotiations, whereby we’re offering some players reduced terms in line with our reduced budget.

I reckon at least half the squad will stay, but this will be ‘drip fed’ through the summer.

Yep agree with this Melbourne.

Last season, there was a particular same day each week when our signings were announced, the only day when Ian Moorsman was there to take pictures.

Twitter the day before, tune in tomorrow for 2 great signings, we all tune in and get Finney & Rowe lol.

Yep agreed, hard to announce a retained list when no one is signed on for next season

Need to just wait and see.

Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about Transfer Tuesdays (or maybe it was Thursdays?) last year.

This year maybe they will be part of midweeks Shots special as it seems like this is going to continue.

I’m guessing that DS is on holiday now so we probably won’t get any news very soon.

"2 in by the weekend" was popular here as a joke or a plea.
