How does this wonderful fairy land you operate in allow players to be placed on the transfer list but that information not being made public work?

Ostracised? No, transfer listed.



os·tra·cize
[os-truh-sahyz]
verb (used with object), os·tra·cized, os·tra·ciz·ing.
1.
to exclude, by general consent, from society, friendship, conversation, privileges, etc.: His friends ostracized him after his father's arrest.
2.
to banish (a person) from his or her native country; expatriate.
3.
(in ancient Greece) to banish (a citizen) temporarily by popular vote.

Sounds pretty much like what's happened to me.

Place them on the list? Fine. Telling people they're available? Sensible. Getting them to train away from the rest of the players when we've barely got enough left to field a squad and no chance in the forseeable future of bringing in replacements? Utter stupidity.

Most of the work over the first couple of weeks will be fitness and conditioning and then there is the Dutch away days with some games. Perhaps SP has said that as he doesnt see these players being part of the squad then they will be training on there own until the remainder return from from Holland. Why pay money to take players away that arent going to be part of the team in the long term.

By then hopefully some if not all will have found new clubs, if not perhaps the intention is review the situation then. Also remember whilst we cant sign players until the emabargo is lifted we can take trialists on and play them in these games. I would expect that this is what he will do and whilst the squad is threadbare at the minute add a few trialists in and its a different story. For all we know the unwanted players may be unwanted because of a poor attitude and actually taking them might have a negative impact on the squad. I dont know and dont claim to know but I doubt we have the full picture and are going on a few words in the CET (not the most reliable of sources).

Jordan Clarke no longer leaving. Seems that being ostracized worked and he is back with a new attitude.

Adge will be pleased!

Also probably something to do with the fact that Christie is speaking to Derby over a transfer to them.

Just like I said in another post somewhere recently. The only reason Jordan Clark will get in the team is there is nobody else!
