I’ve seen on twitter and Facebook people saying he wasn’t offered a new deal at us obviously we don’t know if that’s true but surprised he never had any other offers championship level but 2 League 1 clubs did 

Might depend on what was offered, Pars and Falkirk will have offered 1st team football while Championship clubs might not have been offering it. I just assumed we’d have offered something but maybe Murray doesn’t rate Bene. For me he’s looking more like a solid League 1 player these days. Been a good servant to the club but time to part ways.

Surprised he went to the Pars being Rovers Captain I expect he’d go to Falkirk. Not overly bothered he’s not the player he was and I’m guessing he’d have been back up and not captain if he stayed. I’m sure the Pars will have offered him 1st team football and a decent salary. 

Does he not stay up spam? Probably can't be bothered with the commute to falkirk.

Absolutely no idea where he stays but of the out of contract players that might end up at Falkirk he was my tip especially with McGlynn being there and being his captain.

Not bothered about Bene moving on what bothers me is we have had no list of released players or players who will not resign.

It is a bit strange. I can only assume that we are waiting until we have answers from everyone before we make an announcement but it would have been easy enough to put out something a few days ago which categorised the out of contract players as either released or offered new deals. 

There will surely be something this week considering pre season training starts this weekend.

I’m sure I read somewhere the players are back on Friday Minus Vaughan and Lang obviously get Brad Announced and hopefully a CB before Friday

Just looked at their accounts. £718k in the bank and net assets of over £2m. A very healthy position to be in. 

BUT...I've just been reading their thread in the L1 forum. The anticipated loss for the next accounting period is £900k :blink:. Absolutely mind boggling. 

League One is where full time football goes to die, but that is an incredible amount of money to lose. What the hell were they paying out in wages?!

No shock Bene going. Murray at press conference was specifically asked about 3 players namely Spencer, Tumilty and Bene. He said Spencer had been offered a deal, didn't even talk about Tumilty then said he'd speak to Bene. Clearly wasn't for him.

He was a good servant to us and always tried and wore his heart on his sleeve but at the end of the day his not of the quality we now need to move up the league. Shame about who he's joined but he leaves with zero ill feelings and best of luck for the future (just not any promotions!)

Brads signed a new deal by the looks of things, Maybe RT informed the gaffer he wasn’t to Re-sign like he did back in January and Bene I’ve seen a lot of people say that he wasn’t offered a new deal by Murray obviously we don’t know if that’s true (believe in what you will) and Frankie could be spoken too when he’s back

Well the rumoured wage that Griffiths was on 1.5k a week (we don’t know factual) apparently Paul Watson is on good money, Charlie Telfer I would imagine as well and paying probably good-decent money to the absolute mince they had.

He gets a complete reset, but at the same time this can also be a negative. If he's not performing within 6 months, then he'll be hounded out the door. There's no chance he'll he get the grace he had with ourselves when he went through that 3 month rotten spell.

Transfer window opens on Friday, so I guess we'll hear a lot more on signings and departures around then, and Frankie should be back in the UK Wed/Thur 

When is his last game for Zambia? And is it Friday the Transfer window opens? I thought it was next week

Falkirk already had sufficient CB on staff, would not have necessarily been an automatic starter. At the Pars he is the likely starter.

Even at us he wouldn’t of been a likely starter if Murray brought in his own CHs and a fully fit Berra and Lang was there he would be 4th or 5th choice which he probably didn’t want

Take it Falkirk fed McGlynn a load of shite about their big plans and they are in fact fucked. 

Guessing they think he'll be able to unearth players for f**k all money and use his connections. Clearly unaware of the amount he pished up the wall last season on 2 strikers who played about 6 games between them.
