What is the point of Meggle and his ‘day to day involvement on footballing matters’? I’m the absence of a manager surely he could pick up the slack with contracts? That’s Thomas, Donaldson and Pybus away - arguably our 3 best players last season.

Seems like his role is to text the players telling them goodbye. Pybus getting a text message to say he’s getting released is absolutely out of order. Whatever has happened, boys deserve more than that

I’m not surprised he’s been released but if that is the manner in which it’s been done then the club is really not doing itself any favours.

Poor poor show, face to face or at least a telephone call.

Look at the likes of Southgate when he omits players from the National side, there’s a classer way of doing it.

How do you know that, KP?

Pybus has left, Queen's Park bound apparently.

Not even arguable IMO, definitely our best 3 outfield at least.

There will be a lot more away I imagine.

There’s no place for sentiment, this squad got us relegated and with a new manager coming in, it’s quite right that we see an overhaul and McPake gets the opportunity to put his stamp on the club, he’ll know the pressure that will be on him from the off so he’ll want to do this his way with the players he wants and fully back that approach.

Thomas clearly has a chip on his shoulder, Donaldson was a loan and Pybus we had the option of extending, was never a guarantee so I’m not overly bothered at any of them, but the text thing is cruel if true.

AJ also texted players to end their contract. Was well known at the time of his last season with us. 
It’s galling to read that this is still happening.

Guys under contract like Chalmers and Mehmet I would hope are told that they are not in the managers plans and are free to find a new club. Could really do with replacing them.

Guess they could still hover around the reserves and take a wage for a year but there is a chance that they might force a move if they know they won't play.

I don't care how poorly a player has performed throughout the season, there's no justification for telling them they're no longer required via a text message. It's heartless and unprofessional.
