    Retained list

    This should be due any day now. What are we expecting? Who to keep and who to go? Personally I think there may be some surprise exits on there (donít know anything just a hunch.)

    I wouldn't say that any player exiting would be a surprise as such, given how crap most of them have been this season. I think any 'surprises' will arise out of players still under contract being released, such as Whitfield, Monty and Miller.

    My major concern is that C & K have spent so much buying the club from the blue buffoon that there's not much for anything else.

    I don't think that's necessarily true. It seems that the Club was pretty much self-sufficient over the past couple of years, so if that's the starting point (happy to be proven wrong), all it would take is a steady increase in funds made available to the manager to gradually improve the playing squad.

    Thatís why ST sales are vital.

    The regular first team players should be offered 2 year contracts.The bench warmers and sick notes replaced by young hungry players.

    It must be horrible time for managers up and down the country. We never seem to realise it is a persons job and livelihood, cut throat profession.

    It can come across as callous but for my two penneth worth

    Release
    Elliott
    Turner
    Vassell
    Tonge
    Pugh ( stay on as coach )
    Rawlinson
    Angus


    Jury out for me on
    Calverley
    Benns

    Remain unconvinced
    Conlon ( Sam Kelly also scored worldies )

    And who knows what to make of Trickett-Smith signed by the loon and sent back to Level 8 football at Leek. Will Askey want him ?

    Then there is the so called ' bad eggs ' to offload.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see any of that. I'm not sure though we've seen the last of Elliott - from what I've seen he has a bit of pace about him, a decent shot and the right attitude, which I think will count a lot with Arthur. Anyway, we'll see - Arthur seems like a good judge of a player to me.

    For me I would add Miller to that list. Not worth the hassle and not very good anyway.

    I would give Angus a chance too. Maybe 6 months? He has done well in his loan spells and hasnít been given a fair chance here

    I would definitely keep Conlon. Think heís actually our best midfielder after Manny

    Question marks over Kay and Hannant too but would lean to keeping both as I think they both have things to offer and are reliable

    Miller has gone already. Gibbons may get a 2nd chance. Donít be surprised to see Hannant released.
    Too many of them are unprofessional.
