Hope this is okay for my first thread.

It has been quite obvious since the unfortunate play-off defeat that there has been a lack of updated news regarding the first team on the Club's official site.

Without the risk of being accused of fishing the last time there were such delays it led to some dire consequences being uncovered.

After all this time last year the Club was hitting the ground running as to updates of players released and signing new contracts on the OS.

Now it appears News maybe will be slow to filter through to the Echo. Hope not as Chris Phillips has kept us informed of first team news wheras the OS has not.

I've threaded this through as I see it really hasn't been discussed elsewhere. If it has then I apologise as I would seem to have missed it.

Anyone know anything on this subject or have any hunches?

No I'm not blue79 in disguise and haven't taken to that in complimentary mood. That aside I appreciate people are entitled to a holiday or some time off but in the first weeks after last season ended there were positive updates. I know nothing as to why this shouldn't be the case this time round hence why I asked. You may well be right Old blue lady.

What news is there likely to be? Everyone is on holiday from a long hard season. The fixtures are not out for a couple of weeks and the Euros are about to start. I doubt even the Premier league clubs have much news on their websites either.

What do you want the website to make up news stories? Maybe spread a rumour that we are after Messi or an even sillier story like work will finally begin on the New Stadium.

So justshrimper, how long have you been feeling this way? Lay down on my couch and let me ask you a few questions. Which of your personalities is in control? Are any of your personalities in control? I note you take offence at being called 'Blue 79'. Is that the dark scary side of you, is it, is it? Does Blue make you do things that are naughty? Does he make you lay on your left arm 'til it goes numb and then force you to type on the keyboard as though you are someone else, hmm. eh, does he? I bet it was Blue that 'lay' with the col u slapper-collective and blamed you. Open up now justshrimper, all friends here. There, there, does that feel better?

In a world of my own.
The financial advisor I Sit with looks after 40 players so I get loads of gossip. Every single player to a man is away this week so the chances of anything happening are almost nil. It's in effect the football equivilant of the week between Xmas and New Year for the working man.

Holiday time - sounds good to me. :smile:

However, I would have thought that the situation with regard to releasing more than 10 players would have featured by now .... and call me an old fart but I for one would prefer to hear the news from the club first rather than the Evening Echo. Whilst some of the players made not have quite made the grade required, many have worked hard to try to get in the team and progress - somehow the lack of an official bulletin does not dignify the position.

I wish you'd type a sentence that makes sense! :raspberry:

Nothing wrong with the answer I gave.
