    The club has made the announcement that all players out of contract are to be released. I do feel though, that if the financial situation is resolved quickly, some of those players may be offered deals - particularly Carrington, Regan, Fagan and Soares (and possibly Holden).



    But whether its Blackwell or someone else, there's not much to work with here. There's a lot of work for someone, I just wish they were able to get on with it. When the news of our financial troubles broke, they said they hoped to have it resolved within a week. Obviously that was a bit ambitious, but its well over a month later now and nothing's been announced. Its worrying.

    Anyway I didn't know what to use as an image for this news item so please enjoy the picture I found of some cheese. Hmmm cheese.
