So, it's two weeks today since the end of Blackpool's second season in The Championship, but what's been going on at board room level since the 1-0 win at Swansea?
There have been rumblings of club captain Shaun Barker going to Derby County, and Charlie Adam joining The Seasiders - along with the uncertainty surrounding DJ Campbell's future.
But for the minute, the managerial situation remains the key issue at Bloomfield Road, and frankly, nobody knows what is happening.
It's been rumours agogo since 3rd May about caretaker manager Tony Parkes' future.
The rumours coming out of the various messageboards in the last fortnight have been along the lines of Parkes mulling over a contract offer; if you listened to other people you'd get that Jim Gannon is taking over or that John Sheridan has had an interview.
But now there seems to have been a twist in the already confusing story. The latest rumours state that Tony Parkes has walked out on Blackpool after rejecting a derisory offer.
This has led to a surprise name put in the frame to land the managers job.
Bury manager Alan Knill is, according to Sky Sports, on the shortlist to replace Simon Grayson.
The 44-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest managers to ply their trade in the lower leagues, and has a 50% win percentage at The Shakers. It was thought that the Gigg Lane club would overcome Shrewsbury Town in the League Two playoffs last week, but they were knocked out on penalties, which could be a factor if Knill is indeed in the frame.
Knill's name is added to the long list of possible candidates, from Iain Dowie to Ian Holloway and Jim Gannon to John Sheridan.
But let's face it, do we really know what's going on at Bloomfield Road? Probably not, but what is certain is that Karl Oyston and Valery Belokon have a big call to make in the next week (at the very latest) if they have any ambition of competiting next year. We simply cannot afford to be weeks behind in preperation...again.
