Given the announcements of the last few days have the Club now decided to communicate with the fans?

 Could be wrong, but the way I read it is that they are available for transfer, but unlike the others they are subject to a transfer fee.
 


All of the players noted are under contract for next season I believe.

Bizarre.

They are. It has been mentioned previously, but I do wonder if the club have any legal responsibilities. Will they need to pay up the remainder of their contracts?

When did they stop communicating? As far as I’m concerned, they’ve told us all we need to know. We know the plans for the season ahead, sponsorship, new kit deal, what’s happening with existing squad in terms of next season. 

What more is expected?

I found that part of the announcement very strange. Why would them being in the last year of their contracts (which most players are in League One) have any relevance to being transfer listed?

Surely you’re either wanted by the club and therefore not available for transfer, or not wanted and on the transfer list?

I read it as them not being in the plans but Airdrie not willing to give them the pay-off their contract will require, therefore they're free to find another club or continue picking up their wages. Absolutely nobody is going to pay money for those boys.

I would have come to the same conclusion, had the announcement not stated otherwise:

“Defender Kieran MacDonald and midfielder Scott Stewart, although part of the manager’s plans for next season, have also been listed as available due to the pair entering the final year of their contracts.”

Why would you be transfer listed if you were “part of the manager’s plans”?

Perhaps Murray wanted to keep them as squad players but both players want to be in the first team. The compromise there being they can leave if they find a club offering first team football.

Probably the most likely scenario, it would have been good of them to say that though!

You see I read it a different way again.

I looked at it like the players wanted away (maybe they didn't want to go full-time, or be part-time in a hybrid model where they might not be looked upon as favorably?) but Muzz rated them, and is reluctant to release them.

As highly as I rate Stewart, I'm not sure any club is in a position to chuck any money your way. Unless it's something nominal like £500 - with that deducted from his wages for X weeks or whatever.

Yep, I would doubt any club would pay money for the players on that list. Taking some of them off our hands would be good enough for me.

I read it as Murray building his core squad for not only next season but the following one, in order to get the consistency which paid dividends for Arbroath this season. 

He wanted Stewart and Mcdonald as part of that 2 year plan but the players themselves do not want/like the offer that's been made and have chosen to not extend.

Would like to see Stewart at Gayfield as a back up kind of player, in a kind of Omar Kader role, I think he has potential

I read it that way initially too but after reading the last few pages I'm not sure :lol: I said before but I hope Stewart stays and I'm ambivalent about MacDonald. For the other names mentioned, I read it as they'd be pretty much free to leave once another club came in for them and contract formalities were sorted out and assuming the move suited all parties.

Sean Crighton set to stay according to the Advertiser - https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/local-sport/airdrieonians-captain-sean-crighton-set-15008718 

For next season then I think we have signed up - 

Sean Crighton (still to be confirmed) 

Josh Edwards 

Dale Carrick 

Cammy Russell

Scott Gallacher (?) 

And Keiran MacDonald and Scott Stewart although both of these players are available for transfer. 

Presumably, then we have also offered deals to - 

David Hutton 

Dean Hawkshaw (not sure how long he was signed for) 

Kieran Millar 

Leighton McIntosh

Mixture.  Some full time, some part time.  Plus Falkirk will bring a decent crowd.

Have you had a cash injection also? Seems strange. With Falkirk in the league even worse I would have thought as it will be more difficult to get promoted.

The new kit deal looks very professional btw. Kudos to the club for getting it organised. Now we've just got to hope the kit is available to buy in the summer/before Christmas for a change :lol:
