The Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has revealed on the Official Site his thinking behind seeing each player individually after yesterday's disappointing result against Chesterfield :
After the game I did have a man-to-man talk with all the players individually and gave everyone a progress report. Some of them know that they are in my plans and some of them know they might not be, or that they are not.
However he was not naming names publicly as to who is in the latter category, though it is clearly in the plural. This site has become aware of one name on that 'list', but intends to respect the manager's preference and treat it as off-the-record information. As Johnson says : I am not going to mention any names, because if nobody comes in for them, then we may need to use them.
In the case of Andy Lindegaard, who was substituted at half-time, however the manager has, unusually, openly expressed his disappointment in an individual's performance on the day. Lindegaard will be sent out on loan if any club comes in for him.
Coming the other way the manager stated that there was unlikely to be any permanent signings in the immediate future, but that one or two loans were a strong possibility.
We have a couple of loan signings in mind and further information will be given as and when it comes off.
I have four of my scouts out at games tonight making assessments of players that may or may not be available. We feel we may need to freshen things a little with one or two players and we are trying to do that.
Finally Gary seemed to be pouring further cold water on speculation that Lee Johnson's tour of the stadium applauding the fans post-match was a farewell.
I was pleased with the Bank Holiday crowd and their support for us. That was why the players went round and clapped the fans; because they were appreciative of their support, and not because all of them were leaving for other clubs in the morning.
