Interesting...but actually thats not a bad move. He wont be expensive...hes played well this season and offers flexibiity as he can play a few positions.

Good for the squad next year in the prem.

He's done a pretty good job since he came. Think it's another positive bit of news to follow on from the last few weeks.

Good player as a squad player, covers full back and wing, but I hope I we still bring in a top full back

Re: Arscott
GeordieFalcon 10 February, 2020 11:49

Now that would be very annoying if true but then again I have heard a few rumours that have surprised me

What rumours have you heard?

I realise I知 fighting a lost cause here, but please think carefully before posting unsubstantiated rumours.

These are real people with real families, and some people reading this stuff will take it at face value and assume it to be true.

I知 not trying to stifle healthy debate and chit chat, but you might not fully appreciate the effect that often incorrect rumours regarding contracts, transfers etc can have.

Just please take a moment to think before posting something on a public forum that may well not be true.

Well put Smithy. It's too easy to post something without thinking of the impact on those involved. It doesn't take long for a repeated rumour to become a "fact".

Quite agree

You are right Mark, but I do think this is sometimes a result of the lack of communication that comes from Dean (certainly not yourself Mark)

So often we really dont know a huge amount of whats going on at KP regarding players, ie suddenly you just randomly notice players have been released weeks or even months ago...or loaned out and playing for Doncaster or someone else without any mention of it and we only notice by seeing the teams sheets.

So when we see rumours elsewhere, we tend to discus them on here....

I think it's good news about Arscott. He has been playing well this season, he's resilient and a good attacking threat. I still think 15 isn't his strongest position but it's great for stability and the strength of our squad that he's re-signed.

Hadn't heard any rumours about Hodge and all I can say is that there seems to be a real sense of momentum and positive direction around the club at the moment. Hopefully that's how it feels in the changing room as well as out here amongst the fans.

Hi GF,

Of course I take your point on board, but there's a big difference between saying:

1) Rob Farrar is playing for Doncaster on dual-reg (it's a demonstrable fact, he's named on their team sheet)

and saying...

2) My mate at the butchers said his uncle overheard the fishmonger saying that Joe Bloggs' brother said he's signing for Old Stinkonians next season.

Re: Arscott
GeordieFalcon 11 February, 2020 10:44
Well thats just plain wrong...because he wouldnt sign for Old Stinkonians anyway....

Seriously though...I do appreciate your point Mark.

Think one of the most striking examples of this was Davey Wilson who had retired to take up Physiotherapy (?). At the time I did think someone from these parts who represented England on numerous occasions and had a pretty successful career deserved at least a mention in dispatches. Unless of course he himself wanted to head off into the sunset with no announcement of course.

Re: Arscott
markismith50 11 February, 2020 11:01
Totally understand your point, EF.

I'd love to announce all departing players in a timely fashion, and I realise it does upset some people every year.

Re: Arscott
Exiled Falcon 11 February, 2020 11:17
No worries Smithy, and I do appreciate there's other rather more pressing issues to be looked after on a day to day basis!
