Any idea when our retained list will be released?

Why on earth did Matt Jay, Robbie Simpson and Hamon get more than one year before?. Jay and Hamon wont make it into the first team and Simpson is rubbish neither should be near the first team tbh.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I'd add Jamie Reid to your list.

I'm glad Watkins has at least another year.

Hopefully Joel Grant will sign again, although I would not have said that 6 matches ago (he was a revelation in the playoffs semis).

TAH being offered another deal is ludicrous. Tis does himself no favours sometimes.

Not really, Matt Jay has never been good enough. We didn't need 3 keepers so it would have been better to offer one year and then decide if needed and Simpson has an awful record.

that's not what happened for Jay and Hamon. The club have been gradually offering new deals in recent weeks/months to players whose deals were due to expire. For example Lee Holmes deal expired this summer but we offered him a new deal a while back. Presumably Hamon and Jay have been offered a new contract in recent weeks.

If true then why on earth have they done that? Hamon may be the cheaper option but is nowhere near as good as Olejnik. Jay is nowhere near good enough

Obviously he is being offered a minimal salary only to act as a back up in an injury crisis, which I expect is why he hasn't agreed to sign yet. I actually think that is smart management, not ludicrous at all.

Has he? Ok so he's not signed yet but whose to say what terms he's been offered!
