Resigned or re-signed?

How fucking hard is it to put a hyphen in "re-sign"  if you mean they have signed on again and not resigned from the Club? 

And who knows which players Johnston has actually approached or is keen to re-sign. It may not always be the case  that it's the player's decision not to re-sign.

Banned? Who the Fcuk are you? 2 posts. 
 

Unless they prefer a deal elsewhere. Different terms, money, length of deal, location.

I'm not buying into this talk of the manager being such a disagreeable character that players would be queuing up to leave the club because of him, and I feel this is borne out by the number of players AJ has signed more than once during his managerial career - Kidd, Paton, Gibson, Holt etc.  No doubt there are personality clashes, but if that was the be all and end all how many players would have turned down Man U in the Alex Ferguson years, or Souness's Rangers?

A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Barney Davidson and had a long chat with him about his time at Queens, and he told me that of the 7 or 8 managers (if you include Willie Harkness) he played under only one was "a right b*****d" (his words!), and that was Billy McLaren who allegedly went out of his way to bully and humiliate players, especially youth/younger players, to such an extent that they were desperate to leave the club or even give up the game altogether.  The rest (who I think off the top of my head would have been Nobby Clark, Drew Busby, Mike Jackson, Ally McLeod, Frank McGarvey, Davie Wilson, Derek Frye and the aforementioned Harkness) he believed were all decent man managers.

Since then we've heard all about the well-documented issues that players had with Kenny Brannigan (prime example being David Weatherston), and I have heard from a couple of people connected to clubs other than Queens that Rowan Alexander could be a right c**t in his treatment of youth players, but from the outside looking in AJ doesn't strike me as being of the same type of character as either of those two or McLaren.

Re-signs. Apologies for such an error. What was I thinking. A basic error that seems life changing to some.

Any talk of what's happening with Jones in the summer? Looks the sort that could step up?

He’s a Middlesbrough player and signed a new deal with them before coming to Queens on loan.

He could undoubtedly play at a higher level than Scottish championship

He's still on the books at Boro. Not sure he's quite ready yet so another loan might be likely. Would love him back here but Warnock might want him out at a higher level next season. When he's on form he could easily play in our top flight.

Brilliant. Not allowed to have your own opinion. I heard there was a local player on £300 a week before any win bonuses. That's all I was saying. Source horse's mouth. Gibson resigning was a given but were are all the other players, we have only announced youth players

Given they mean completely different things combined with the fact both will be used regularly in regards to football, it's the one spelling mistake that gets rightly heckled.

Being unable to spell "re-sign" correctly isn't an opinion

For the record though you're wrong about Gibson, he decided to stay for one more year...

Gibson didn't resign. He signed a new contract.

The budget will be set around what the BoD think they'll get in terms of an average attendance on top of ST sales.  Sadly it still seems there is a large disconnect between the Dumfries public and their local professional team.  If the locals can be enticed back then the budget for players goes up.

Trouble is, that's a bit of a chicken and egg approach.
