My thoughts too.. I believe the midweek pre game press conferences were always scheduled for 09:00am the day before.. although this is the manager's preference.

I can't see anything from The Echo, The Gazette, etc.

@fmttmadmin might be able to shed some light on this.

Did you receive a nod as to why this is Rob? Pretty standard procedure isn't it?

Do you usually receive a notification/invite with a time/date/location each week, and did this just not arrive?

Would have loved to hear Leo speak.
Am thinking back and recall there was no press conference when Mark Venus took over in similar circumstances nor when Colin Coiper did and Mark Proctor. Probably realise Leo has an awful lot on his plate and unfair on him to have to face questions about Chris Wilder.

Yes I usually get an invite. But I think this would probably be very unfair on Leo. Just too short notice and maybe too much to ask him to prepare for Wednesday and answer questions about Chris Wilder departure. Need to be fair to Leo.

I might be clutching my pearls here but the lack of communication is quite amazing really. Nobody arsed enough to speak to Tees, no pre-match press conference. Three cold sentences dismissing a manager and his staff. It’s a bit sh*t IMO.

I agree, I posted yesterday how we need leadership from the leader, at a time of huge uncertainty.

Steve Gibson & Kieran Scott should be speaking.. now they may do this once the appointment is made, but it needs to happen.

Whats the plan? What's the strategy? Why has what happened, happened? Why should we have faith that the club is heading in the right direction?

He hasn't spoke publicly since the summer we got relegated, has he?

Last time Gibson spoke was when we unveiled Woodgate I think. I'm not expecting to hear from him every week, but when these big pivotal decisions are made there should be some communication, even if it is from his Head of Football.

Craig Johns said that they had contacted the club yesterday to try and arrange something, but no one was available.
