Not a top priority, perhaps, but a quick fix; how much time & effort would it take for someone to update the website as soon as a player has signed, or is released?

Then issue a press release so that the media (the Mail, BBC, etc) can report the news

Could be tricky, with the French ferry workers blockading Calais and setting the channel tunnel entrance on fire, and the French air traffic controllers going on strike. :(

The point I was making is that irrespective of them being out of contract at the end of June. If it was not being reviewed it's obvious that they would have been released! Then we would have spoken to them and we could have announced some imminent signings!
Sorry I have had to explain that to you but there again you wouldn't have tried to ridicule a valid point!
I'm not trying to ridicule your point. I'm not an expert in the legal niceties, but my guess is that if a player is under contract to a club, he probably can't be released (and signed by another club) until that contract has expired. Otherwise, the new club may have to buy out the remaining weeks of the existing contract.

Re: Signings (not a rumour)

I was getting all excited there, Jim, but still no definite news.

This time tomorrow, perhaps?
