 Squad Predictions following Board Statement
Topic Originator: Bigfoot  
Date:   Thu 9 May 15:27

OK, so this is meant to be a bit of fun following the Chairman's statement - but lets have your predictions for our squad and thoughts on where and who we recruit.

I am going for the Bill Shankly approach of a strong and experienced spine and youth out wide.

I predict we will bring in a stalwart at

So my prediction is as follows
Current formation to be 4-3-3 with a view to going to a 4-4-2 for preseason.

A squad of 20, with stalwarts on a 1 year contract at CH, CM and S and young young guns at RM and LM on 2 year contracts. .

The remainder of the squad to be made up loanees and what is left of our reserve/youth squads.

Gk: Scully
DL: Longridge
CH:Experienced player TBC
CH:Ashcroft
DR:Craigen (to be used as auxilliary CM or MR)
CM: Beadling (to be used as an auxilliary CH)
CM:Thomson
AM: Hyppolite (to be used as auxilliary LM)
S: Ryan
S: Calum Smith
R1: Gill No further recruitment)
R2:
R3:
R4:
R5:
R6:
R7:
R8:
R9:

Any thoughts - other than how sad I am to be thinking about how we can assemble a squad on the cheap?

Thomson's out most of next season so you can take him out.

Positions filled so far in my view:

GK - Scully

DL Longridge
CB Ashcroft
CB Anderson
RB Craigen

RM
MC Beadling
MC
LM

FC
FC Ryan

Bench

Gill
Devine

He's not signed or anything though, has he? It's interesting though that we've been crying out for pace alongside Ashcroft and it looks like we're looking at a 34(?) year old.

Nah my lineup will just be filled with the strong rumours and those that are staying. Don't take anything as gospel.

Surely we should be looking to think long term and assemble a team that can get us out of league 1
