Am I missing something here? Don't teams usually release the retained list at the end of the season? There is still one more match to play. Released players like Thomas and Mehmeti are hardly going to give 100% if picked on Saturday. So that only leaves Obika as a forward for the Blackburn match. Maybe they weren't in contention anyway and Robinson intends to include Hall from the start? But still think it wiser to release the list next week. It's hardly going to affect our present budget.
Would have thought that said 8 have a head start on rivals as contracts were ending in any case and it assures our targets we have room in the salary closet so to speak. Players in contract like Lego and Nelson.. then the right offer has to be on the table as a starting point obviously.
