I asked my mate who works at DC Thomson about this. He says Hartley only allows the press access to the ground, himself and players one non-match day a week so Thursday and post-match are their only chance to get stories.

This is the norm for most clubs. Seen Jim Spence moaning on twitter not long ago that media are only allowed access to clubs on one day a week.

Can't criticise him for that. It's performances on the pitch that get people to come to games not press comment from players. Having said that we should be getting our message across in other ways. Our own PR seems often to be missing. Is it because the rationing by PH has created a less than positive attitude from the press? Might we need to try harder to encourage comment from the press. I read the critical comments often posted on here about the media. Are we perhaps we need to change our approach.

How do other clubs get so much more coverage? Not mentioning OF, but surely there must be more to football PR than allowing the press access one day a week.

Think he actually said that United allow access to players twice a week, which was the norm, but Dundee was down to once.

I agree that players should be focusing on training and preparation without distraction but I think the manager, as the club's representative, should be prepared to speak to the media regularly and when required to provide updates on injuries and other things that fans want to hear about.

Well at 09.30 this morning I looked at Courier, not Tully, as it was the morning (logic?) and no story since 9 Oct - the Edinburgh Evening News do a brilliant service on the clubs there.

So - news on Stewart but is  Thomson fit for Saturday???? - he went off injured too in last game.

PS two different journos posted stories at 06.00 today on virtually the same topic - Stewart being OK for Sat. No editing there???

A report shortly after the last game and then a report leading up to the next game is all that is really required IMO unless their is specific out of the ordinary news that should be reported. Otherwise it is just old news being recycled daily.

Hamilton will be reading what is coming out of Dens re injuries. I would therefore rather they didn't say when someone is a doubt for a game. They hear Hartley saying "Thomson's got a bit of bruising on his leg but he might be okay". All that happens is he gets targeted for bad tackles
