no surprises whatsoever there. Mackin sounds like he'll sign. Luke Graham is a key signature for me, he still lives down towards the midlands doesn't he? it will take some convincing to get him to sign on, but it's vital he remains with us.
Purkiss.....didn't he do this last year? understandable 12 months ago when we were pants. is he waiting for league clubs to come in or what??
the big question is what to do with Brodie. for me there are 3 options. sell him now and maybe pick up a six-figure sum. encourage him to stay with us for one more season to see if 2010/11 can finally be the year......or extend that deal for another year to the summer of 2012.
can't see the latter happening, but i think it's imperative that he stays for next year. if we still don't go up, then he's out of contract and fair enough, if we do then we can thrash out new terms.

No surprises.
With regards to Brodie rogue84, I feel he realises he's still got something to learn before moving on up. He seems to appreciate the opportunity York gave him so I think he would want to repay us by a) gaining promotion with us or b) by getting the highest fee possible when he's had another season learning from Foyle. Here’s hoping anyway.

I like Brodie's attitude towards the club. I know its naiive to think players can be loyal in this day and age, but Brodes seems to genuinely care and he always puts in 100%. The same is true about a lot of our squad, I'm happy they're mostly staying together.

As much as I like him and appreciate all the good work he's done in the past, I'd have to let Danny Parslow go, he's not as good as Mcgurk, luke graham or Sangare and he's no good at right back.

Danny always gives 100% but if Newport came in for him then we shouldn't stand in the way of him returning home!
I would like to see the 3 who have been offered contracts sign up with Jimmy as well. Smithy is 50:50 in my book but can't see why Martin put Pitt on bench Sunday if he's serious about Smithy.
With 4 or 5 quality additions then we will be flying come August 14th!!

I have to say that I am not suprised by any of the players that have gone.
Would like to see Sangare, Mackin, Graham and Smith sign back on with us, although I am sure they will drag it out to see if a league club starts sniffing around...
I would also like to see Brodie stay but would prefer another striker to help him out next term as we cant rely on one man to score all the time.
Wonder if we could tempt Pitt back on loan at the start of the new term.

In regards to Nelthorpe hasnt he already gone to Luton??

Hope Mimms gets fixed up, it must be tough being a sub goalie, especially when the manager doesnt use one during league games. Good luck to the rest of them, thought Duckworth might have been worth giving a go to see how he developed. Brodie sounds like he is happy to stay if noody comes in for him so it seems to be win-win there.

I agree regarding Danny Parslow and can`t see why we are keeping Adam Smith. After a good season when he was on loan from Gainsborough Trinity and busting a gut to sign him, he hasn`t kicked on ( excuse the pun !) Pacy yes but his crossing has been poor and he runs with his head down. Andy McWilliams must be one for the future as he is being kept on.
Password here was fail-team !! Nowt like rubbing it in ! Glad to see many true City fans are happy with the season and optimistic for the next !

Andy McWilliams? - I thought it was a miss print, he hasnt figured all season yet he is offered a new contract, the mind boggles!. Not really suprised by the others though, except perhaps Adam Smith. I just hope that some of last seasons regulars have to fight for a place next season, if we can bring in a few new faces.

No, Luton made it clear they weren't offering Nelthorpe a permanent deal.
Russell has signed a deal at Cambridge. Pitt has been released, so before any consideration of a loan he has to find a permanent club first! I'd imagine they'd then want him playing for them.
I'd imagine O'Hare will get a deal at Gainsborough where he has basically been all season.

It desn't say he has been offered a new deal, it says he's already under contract. May have been given two years last summer. I'm all for that though, give young lads time to progress and develop before casting them out.

No disrespect to Danny Parslow but i can see him moving on. i also think that Adam Smith has been very poor, certainly since the turn of the year and there are better players out there.
To those who constantly knock Neil Barrett.We have come alive when he is playing along side ALex lawless in a central role. Lawless gets the glory and Barrett does the unglorified donkey work.
Defo need a fit Gash alonside Brodie with Rankine sitting in just behind them or even slightly wider right.

Basically I agree with my Southern compadre.
Those who criticise, forget Danny Parslow was in the side during our non league record run which made up for the slow start of the first couple of months. Continuity and togetherness (supporters included) should hopefully get us off to a quick start next time.
Keeping the defensive "squad" together will be a bonus but then get some more flair in wide midfield. Adam Smith is a surprise to me unless he comes reasonably priced.
Andy McWilliams suffered the second season syndrome - I wonder if he could develop into a kind of Jon McCarthy with his strength and pace. If not I think he is lucky if he was on a two year deal.
Whatever they all deserve great appreciation for the season we've just had. The mean spirited comments about certain Wembley performances reflect more adversely on the writers than the merits of the players.
In the new season expectations will be sky high -unrealistically so in some quarters. We must ensure that we don't lose the faith if we have a bumpy early season.

In the meantime,clashing views or not, may I wish all with YCFC at heart a glorious Summer!
See you in August.

If we can off load Parslow it would be a bonus and increase the budget to bring in a quality striker. Brodie has done better than expected but Gash has been a complete waste of money. We would be lucky to get 15k for him now. A decent midfield player and two out and out wingers please on the shopping list please. We must push on and get out if this poxy league. Beware of Luton, Grimsby and Newport next season.

I would have agreed with you, but Gash was pretty much the best City player on the pitch when he came on against Oxford. Hopefully that's a sign of things to come next season.

Agree that Gash made things happen when he came on; in retrospect, I'm pleased Brodie was subdued on Sunday at his lacklustre performance may have deterred potential bidders from coming in. If Flett is to be believed (always a big ask!) MF is trying to get Brodie to extend his contract and that would be good news. Admire MF for keeping the core of a good side together - we just need that bit of assurance and flair to make a good side great.

Purkiss to me sums up where the line should be drawn. He was okay for us this season, but nothing more. If we want another possible play off position, he'd stay. If we want to be Stevenage callibre, he is wrong side of the line.
Will be an interesting close season, because we have retained some pretty good players, however, we need two or three new outstanding ones to make all the difference. A commanding centre back (esp. if Graham goes), an attacking midfielder who can take players on consistently and a strike partner for Brodie who also knows where the net is.

Purkiss was in my opinion (and Flett's in The Press) our best player at Wembley and has performed consistently all season - I do not believe there are many classier right backs in the Conference. I was disappointed not to see Adam Smith on the bench at Wembley - to my mind he gives us far more flair and directness than Courtney Pitt who I certainly do not think is worth chasing after his release from Cambridge. Am very hopeful for next season but if we do go up let's do it with purer football and style than Stevenage!

At the end of the day we were not good enough full stop, Oxford showed the level we need to be at for next season. We don't score enough goals from midfield and have been playing full backs and central midfielders out of position out wide.And rely on one striker to get us out of trouble These are facts and these are the things that need addressing for next season. We are probably four players short of a promotion winning team as it stands. We have plenty of good quality players for this level but it now needs the next step up, people talk of Purkiss but Parslow kept him out of the team for a period this season which shows what level he tends to be at, word is he has turned down the new contract offer anyway.
It's time to be ruthless in order to make that final push.

On that basis then would it not be worth us looking to sign Pitt as he has showed some real class, and could potentially score double figures across the season as long as he gets played. He always looks up for it.

Don't forget Darius Charles turned us down because of location. Not sure if we need another Centre back but if we do go for another one I would go for Luke Foster who has been released from Mansfield.

Not me, he tends to have attitude problems,likes the ladies and has been very poor for Mansfield. Not good enough for us now.

He looked good for us when we had him loan though, but I agree that his poor attitude could be a problem. I'd also like us to go for Mathew Tubbs from Salisbury, he scored 32 goals last season, although I suppose a stricker is not what we need, unless we get a bid that we can't turn down for Brodie.

Pleased to see Brodie seems to be staying. He must be a good player given the number of goals he scored last year, but I still think he needs to improve. I only saw York play twice this year, at Stoke and at Wembley, and in neither game did Brodie look like scoring. He tried hard, but the defenders knew how to play him, so suspect if he did go up to a higher league he would struggle.
