I just don't know any more. Oduwa is only a loan deal I think so unless that was with a view to being made permanent?

Gannon has been desperate and looks disinterested. If he wants to stay I'd keep him. I wouldn't be surprised if he's thinking one last payday signing on fee, however.

Listening to Giller post match speaking to Gerry.....he seems confident that a new man will be in place soon. Could it be a case that they have been planning it for a while in the background and the difference of opinion was that Vinny wanted players signed up and Peak6 were putting it on the long finger?? Owners maybe have a new man who knows who he is taking in and who he wants to keep.......

This is clearly fake news, I was clearly half asleep when I read it 🤣 deleting to avoid the embarrassment

Fats breaks down again...

Would you keep any of the lads out of contract who can’t stay fit? Or is Norton just not up to the level of the guys before him?

Considering he was crocked round about the time of Oldham, it's more pat I think. Although I think Norton would be a notch down from our previous s&c coach

I thought Gannon’s agent was Bill’s go to man?

Hard to know with Gannon , certainly looked not interested and was poor since the restart , his form must have continued liked this under Flippo, it must be bad when Hoare is picked ahead of him!! He could have the deal already done with Rovers!!!!

With so many players out of contract and nothing being announced, rumour will fill the void. Filippo said contracts are not up to him and he wants
To concentrate on the job.
With absolutely no news on any contract negotiations it seems to me that there is a deliberate plan to run down contracts. Is there going to be a new manager next season who wants
His own players? Are we going to have an influx of foreign players?
There seems to be deliberate silence around contracts from the club, which is worrying and will only lead to more rumours and bad PR for the club.
Can the journalists that cover the club not ask questions about this?

Was just reading Niall’s last post on another thread about players we need to keep and let go, of the top of my head these are who I’d be thinking of letting go am sure everyone will have their own opinion.... Rodgers( we need quality and somebody commanding only keeper in the league would be Bryan Murphy after that it’s outside the league),Cleary ( started of well but to inconsistent and very rash) Massey( great servant but think end is near, not saying that Leahy is an ideal replacement) Murrary ( injury prone) , probably Flores ( few wonder goals but doesn’t stamp his authority on a game) , keep McEleney but on reduced terms, McMillan ( no where near the player he was) not sure on Oduwa or Gatt, think they are decent but haven’t seen enough of them. And looking at Gannon it’s looks like he wants out. Players from within the league would be Bryan Murphy and Twardek.

In relation to Gannon he is notoriously a slow starter and this is a very mixed up season the lockdown makes this feel as if we are starting again and it usually took him 6 7 games to get going. I like odouwa he creates a bit of energy when he comes on. How many players are actually still in contract at the end of the season?

Def under contract into 2021

McEleney
Shields
Leahy
Patching
Colovic
Hoban
Sloggett


Def out of contract

Gannon
Duffy
Rogers

Not sure on the rest but there are at least 6 or 7 possibly more.

Who is talking to these players if its not the new manager, although I hear Bill is flying over next week.

The one think I will say is, they all cant go to Rovers, maybe Gannon will, but who else is going to pay them even close to the current wages they are on and have been used to for a good few years?

Bohs are prudent run, Derry need an investor every year to fund a better budget, Pats are modest payers, not many options left, Also NI clubs mostly part time but Glentoran have do have investors.
