I suspect the wider squad will be utilised further tomorrow as those players who didn't feature at Wexford get a game tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if either of the two triallists used in the Wexford game feature again, or indeed of we play any others. Apparently, Club officials were asking fans not to report the names of the triallists, both of whom we were lead to believe were ex top-flight pros. You can imagine my disappointment then when the names were reported on an Irish website. I'd tell you who they were but I had never heard of them and have already forgotten their names. One is an out-of-contract 28-year old from Dublin who has played for nine clubs and has most recently been released by St Johnstone, so presumably that was as much convenient as serious. The other is a 32-year old Swansea player who doesn't appear to have featured much in the last three years. Our need for fresh faces and dressing room characters is probably as acute our our need for genuine quality, so perhaps I shouldn't be too dimissive.
The players will presumably come home tomorrow and get a day at home with their families before the trek to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday. Stuart Fleetwood would have been looking forward to that one, although I expect a tactical resting, if Exeter City haven't managed to secure him for the £100,000 we are believed to want for him before then.
In the meantime, the Fans Forum have demanded a response from the club to the Mail on Sunday snippet about us heading for the Big A. Steve Waggott has confirmed that they are working on one and it will be released when it's ready. Three days would seem more than sufficient to craft a few sentences, and get a lawyer to look them over for potential loopholes and er, put them on your website. Gaining agreement from all of the other Directors to the wording might not be so easy in the circumstances. The response it may draw will be fascinating. Personally, I will be looking for what it doesn't say just as much as what they are prepared to tell us. Roll on tomorrow.
