Re: Does anybody know....
Rob Morris is the person who almost certainly knows most about the SJP planning application. Based on past experience, Rob is sure to post on here when there is any definite information to pass on - whether good, bad, or indifferent. If Rob is not telling us anything about it at the moment, then there's nothing to tell and you'll just have to be patient and wait until there is.
Re future signings for the squad - that's basically up to Gary. The main two players from last season that have yet to sign are Charlie Goode and Chris Seeby. Chris had a knee operation on Monday so will be out of action for some time, and may not sign until he's given the all-clear; that could be as late as the new year. As for Charlie, I think most people are hoping that he signs for us but are expecting a club at a higher level to sign him. Gary may be happy with just the signings so far, on the other hand he could be chasing a number of players with Conference experience. I don't know what the situation is and at present it's none of my business, but I trust Gary to get the best players at the club that he can and that the club can afford.
There are also a number of squad players from last season whom Gary may or may not wish to sign, always assuming they are still available to us and want to rejoin us.
I don't have a date for the fixture list to be out, but, based on experience over the last dozen or so seasons, I don't expect it until we've played several of the scheduled pre-season friendlies.
