CAS Trust have given a positive report on last night's meeting between Matt Southall and fan groups: Impressed with Southall
It will probably do little to reassure moaners, sceptics and pessimists whose time horizon is the next week rather than the next five years. Indeed, Desmond from Deal has asked me to help him set up a blog in which he can criticise everyone from the owners to fellow fans.
On new signings, the chairman said he and Steve Gallen were working 22 hour days at the moment. There are a lot of players out there and prices are falling. He noted that quoted prices are considerably lower than at the start of the window and that very few deals have been completed anywhere so far this month.
Southall had to leave the meeting earlier than planned to meet an agent.
