And we beat Crawley 6-1... That was just a random blip game.

6-0*

One of our few clean sheets this season! Cheesy

Being closer to National League in 2024 was definitely not on my letter to Santa in December 2023 {or 2022 for that matter}.

The bar really is bloody low isn't it? Every cloud and all that, at least we'll all be capable of elite level limbo at a house party or two {shit I've forgotten, it's not 1983 and Superman by Black Lace is no longer in the Top Ten}  Pint

Is this right

‘ A decision over Hepburn-Murphy’s contract is one of many Head of Football Jamie Russell will have to make leading into next season, with only five players, Harrison Minturn, Ricky Aguiar, Jake Cain, Anton Dworzak, and Aaron Drinan, confirmed as being contracted for next season.’

I think that's missing Udoka Godwin-Malife, and I think we then have options on Johnson, Bycroft, Glatzel and McGurk at least.

That's what we were told.
Hope this is actually a) truthful and b) realistically achievable.

On Comms on Tuesday night it was mentioned by Hawes that Drinan and Cain (and possibly Aguiar)were definitely contracted until the end of next season so if he is to be believed then we have some bodies already tied down.

Those three are in Aud's post, to be fair. Aguiar is definitely 2025, Sandro gave him a three year extension. Drinan is the only one of those who wasn't publicly announced contract length wise (annoyingly, they've stopped doing this as standard).

So I think (as per the first post) the squad breaks down as:

Only on loan: McCarthy, Devoy, Elbouzedi, McKirdy

Out of contract EOS (options unknown): Brann, Clayton, FBT, Brewitt, Genesini, Kokolo, Devine, McEachran, Khan, Uwakwe, RHM, Austin, Adeloye, Shade, [entire second year scholar group including Kanu, Hart, Evans, Brown and others]

Out of contract EOS (we think have options): Bycroft, Johnson, McGurk, Glatzel

Under contract next season: UGM, Minturn, Cain, Aguiar, Dworzak, Drinan

It's a funny one where the only ones I'd be upset if they left are FBT, Khan and three of the four lads with options - but at the same time rebuilding 80% of the squad would be a brutal pre-season, so it would be good to keep at least some of the others for continuity. Will probably come down to things we don't know like who earns more than their squad status should suggest.

Khan I dont care about too much, he can be great but he can be a liability too more often than not.

FBT, Dokes, McGurk, Johnson, Glatzel, and probably Bycroft are the only ones I wouldnt want us to lose. The rest, I dont really care, but would love us  to sign McCarthy if we could.

Otherwaise a clean slate.

Johnson is an unknown so I'm not bothered but fully expect him to be retained to show what he can do.

I think it's good we have a clean slate.

I'm not sure if it's good Russell and gunning are in charge of the rebuild. if they are.

Just want to see a pragmatic mix of youth and a bit of experience. And I don't mean injury prone not played for years castoffs.

That's probably not too controversial to be fair

It is good to have a "clean slate" but the fact that Aguiar and Dvorzak are on the old slate is a bit of a concern I think. Don't like to write players off but I think I've seen enough of Aguiar to think he's not quite good enough and I'm afraid Dvorzak reminds me of Harry Parsons,like a startled deer.

Not sure which ones, if any, i would keep but i find it odd the club havent even had discussions with players OOC, with them being able to talk to other clubs from January onwards
