November 1 has passed and Drown is still unsigned beyond next year. Believe Nrown and Mahoney in same position, all free agents to sign elsewhere. This makes me nervous as the club has been sitting on its hands while a plethora of promising juniors have simply been signed by other clubs. All these players should have already been signed up before the due date and we're in real danger of them going elsewhere. O'Neill has been praised for signing players for their true value, now he should be criticised for being tardy in re-signing players. We'll pay for this, either through paying higher than wanting to because they have received offers from elsewhere or we lose the players we want to keep.
