Being transfer listed later today - await the backlash from the Connell lovers and even worse from the Risser haters when the realisation kicks in that their favourites are going/staying!!

I think you may be surprised. Fiercely criticised PDCs treatment of Connell last season but I'm not convinced he is of  league 1 quality and think he need to move on anyway as PDC doesn't rate him. Think Smith is better than Risser, no more no less.

 But Cox, he was instrumental. Fuck you  PDC Wink

Can see why people are annoyed that we'd keep Risser over Smith but Risser is more versatile and plays a slightly different role, whereas Smith is very similar to Navarro by many accounts. Besides, we don't know the ins and outs of their contract: Risser may be half the price, or it may as simple that we need rid of one of them and feel that Smith is the more saleable asset.

Would be a shame to see Smith and Connell go because they gave it their all last year, but from a footballing point of view I'm not sure either is a huge miss.

It does seem harsh, but players don't show loyalty these days so why should the club?

Someone tweeted that they'd sell their ST if Connell left...

Not sure Connell would cut the mustard in L1, and have no opinion on Cox... but I'd keep Smith as a young (and probably cheap) backup. It's a shame he's going.

Likewise. I'd agree that he may develop and get better. Connell is a likeable bloke and seems to come across quite well, but as Sam says you can't be sentimental in football. Cox is a strange one, not sure why he's listed as you stated he hasn't really been seen much. Surely signing Cox is a lesson to PDC to thoroughly scout his players first before signing them.

That said, there is no way on earth Risser is L1 quality either (he looked out of his depth in L2...), so it is strange that he is retained ahead of Smith.

Risser's a square peg for a square hole. He also improved toward the end of the season, did he not even pick up a MOM or two?

Cox has been/is injured. Maybe he's just a bit injury prone and isn't worth the risk.
