And here is the the prediction for where they will go:

  • Jay Cantley - Juniors or the local college
  • Akeel Francis - National League South or North, with an option to appear on Love Island
  • Morgaro Gomis - QP*
  • Aidan Laverty - QP*
  • Robbie Leitch - QP*
  • Scott Mercer  QP*
  • Conor Sammon - The Shire (he won't have far to walk and they need a replacement for Andy Rodgers)
  • Josh Todd - Berwick or Stranraer (trying to seal up the Borders)

    * May turn into an actual footballer and cause us grief at some point

Hearing Raith have offered a contract to Telfer

He is one that I would say fine if he stayed but not arsed if he goes. There is not a player at the club who I would feel upset about losing, loads I will be raging if we keep though.

Why are we releasing players before we have a manager? 

Because we are not going to appoint a manager We have a DOF who will appoint a head coach. Very different role with less responsibility for sourcing the players ?

You don’t. 

Peter grant was interviewed for the job along with Stuart Taylor 3 weeks ago . I suspect he is currently tapping the alloa guys we want on board but remember Holty will have the final say

Because the fans have been demanding it since Tuesday evening.

If the club are in discussions with other players anything other than there's the door is ludicrous. Not one of them deserve to wear the jersey.

Three weeks ago Miller and McCracken were still in position and Grant was still manager of Alloa Athletic.

We are not appointing Manager. We are appointing a Head Coach. The Director of Football is responsible for recruitment, contracts etc. He takes input from scouts, agents, contacts etc.  While the Head Coach may be asked for an opinion, it's not their responsibility to sign players. It is their role to coach the players at their disposal.

We have an American influence on the board now and this is how they do things in US sports.

You are dividing and conquering the role of Manager.  Why would you ask an ex-footballer to take over a managerial position when they had no experience of management.  Ross Wilson did the DoF role well for us in the past as that was his skilset. Top Managers have knowledge other than kicking a ball. Jack Ross has a degree in Economics. Arsenal Wenger has a degree in Politics and Economics.

Same week he was announced he was leaving Alloa at the end of the season. To be fair Stainrod did say the other night Holt was making decisions on players over the next few days and today we got a released list.

I was with you until you put Jack Ross and Arsenal Wenger in the same bracket.

The notion that, three weeks ago, Holt was interviewing a manager still under contract to another club, for a vacancy that did not even exist, is far-fetched in the extreme.

I've yet to hear one coherent explanation or rationale as to what precise credentials or experience Gary Holt possesses that has seen him pretty much entrusted with the keys and carte blanche to run the football side of this club. His involvement with any first-team affairs should have ceased the minute the final whistle went at Airdrie on Tuesday. Massively unconvinced that this is the path we should be going down.

So neither two or three weeks ago then, more like a few days ago? Ok

Makes a lot of sense based on the rumours since M&M got the bullet.

What's the appeal of Stuart Taylor other than he's a bit of an unknown quantity?  

His record isn't exactly great and he's been closely associated with serial failure Paul Lambert over the last few years.  

What am I missing?
