Could it also be that AA has players lined up, but is unable to announce them until 1st July as they may be contracted till 30th June?

Re: Retained list

We could actually field a reasonably strong team with those we have right now. Not one that will make the play-offs without some additions, but not one that would be relegated either. Contrast that with our position 12 months ago - a big difference.

Re: Retained list

I'm sad to see Cassidy and Wheatley go. Cassidy drew mixed responses from most fans. If you judge him by goals scored then he wasn't a hit, and I guess goals are what most people judge forwards by. But for me his work rate was immense and he brought a different dimension to our team. I don't know wh...

An interesting note from their chairman in yesterday's programme.

Another factor on him going I think is where we are in the League. If we were sitting pretty in the playoffs with a chance of going up I don't think he would have gone.

Glad AA decided against resignation as finding a decent replacement for him mid-season would be a problem.
No reason for him to. It was an awful result, agreed.

Two games earlier we won 6-0 way from home. Nobody was questioning him then.
