After we sign byram and colbeck hopefully this week our first team squad will look like this.
Panto smith
Right backs / wing backs
Byram darikwa
Left backs / wing backs
Robinson osbourne
Central defenders
Dawson fig worrell fox
Centre midfielders
Watson colbeck bridgcutt geddy cash
Wingers/ attack minded midfielders
Lolley Dias the other 2 Portuguese players
Forward grabbon soudani brereton Murphy
That's 23 I know I'm being greedy.
But if we get any injuries to centre defence
We could still struggle. So another cb would be nice. Maybe mings on loan. He can also cover left back as with Robinson who's also versatile.
And maybe another forward. Owt happens to grabbon we screws. No one know if soudani will cut it and Murphy brereton doesn't offer us much. I'd let brereton go out on loan and try to get a deal for Marriott over line. A deal rising to 6m after so many appearances and goals. Maybe 3m upfront. Send brereton there.

I think lam might stay and can provide cover at CB and CDM, not the greatest player but as a 5th choice in both positions its not a bad option

15 Jul 2018 14:22:56
Don’t forget Yates, hope he can be involved this season

15 Jul 2018 14:59:30
Colback won’t come back and we don’t need him.

15 Jul 2018 16:36:37
Colbeck is coming mate. And we do need another cm. I'd of prefared Clayton though

15 Jul 2018 16:54:19
Why do people keep including Osborn in defence he isn't a defender he had to fill a hole didn't too bad but if were aiming for promotion his name should be no where near the defender list, is a midfielder and of sorry but it's like playing halford upfront again

15 Jul 2018 17:51:14
Osbourne no defender I agree. But he can do a job in midfield or as a wing back.

15 Jul 2018 20:12:26
The question is do we want players just doing a job or Do we want them excelling in there role, personally I'm not over keen on too many versatile players jack of all trades but master of none springs to mind

16 Jul 2018 06:50:12
No one knows what Osborn is. Attacking mid would be most people's opinion but he isn't great at that either.

16 Jul 2018 09:11:45
That's why I'd sell osbourne if a offer of 5m came in. Didn't Newcastle offer that last January??

Pascal Gross

Theredman from what I saw of lam at centre back he was nowhere near strong enough for championship, if I remember rightly burton gave him a right working over , as Dm just kept giving the ball away, I think it doubtful he will be anywhere near good enough,

Lost 1-0 to Real Betis.

14 Jul 2018 21:32:03
Better sign some more players then Scouse??😁😁😁

14 Jul 2018 21:53:03
I'll dig out my boots.πŸ‘

14 Jul 2018 22:00:38
Betis finished sixth in Spains top league yet we only lost 1-0, not too bad for a side, most of which have only been together a matter of weeks and some only days.

14 Jul 2018 22:22:54
Agreed, Post reported it as a proper friendly, few bookings, very hot and a fair crowd. Hopefully good fitness work for the squad.πŸ‘

15 Jul 2018 09:00:24
Results don't matter one bit in friendlies. All about getting fitness ready for the proper games.

15 Jul 2018 09:43:44
Have a look at the squad AK used, virtually every player got some time, but Figuereido missing - is he injured?

15 Jul 2018 10:04:08
Looked good defensively, looked bad offensively.

15 Jul 2018 10:17:39
He's recovering from a minor surgery

15 Jul 2018 10:57:54
Can't even beat real betis can't score a bloody goal with that strike force hope it gets better or karanka will be gone 😁

15 Jul 2018 13:05:20
Well be ok skeggs once brereton is in the side he'll soon be banging them in with all those flair midfielders.😁

14 Jul 2018 21:25:09
Saw a discussion about bridcutt not too impressed ak gave him a chance to fight for place he took it with both hands with 3 good performances then it looks like ak is going to ignore him anyway so why give him the chance not the best managerial decision hardly motivates others to fight for a place.

Agree5 Disagree4

14 Jul 2018 21:03:53
Surprised that clough has been totally banished , I thought he would be loaned with an open mind on his future . Mind you you he was one of our worst players last season. 3 million wasted there I’m afraid, we’ll be lucky to get 500k back

Agree4 Disagree4

Are the posts about England's performances in the World Cup out of frustration or are they what people really think. Southgate took over amid a lot of controversy with big Sam, he went about getting rid of most of the old guard as well as getting the team to play more of a passing game. The team are far from being a brilliant team but in a shortish space of time Southgate has turned the players of his choosing into World Cup Semi finalists, not tok shabby in my opinion.

Agree5 Disagree6

14 Jul 2018 20:55:57
my view before a ball was kicked in the world cup;Was we have an inexperienced manager and an inexperienced team whoed not played in a major tournament.
Put the two together and it didn't look good,but at the end of the day we reached the last four.
It's progress whichever way you dress it up and the old guard in that squad will be discarded before the euros.
He'll bring more young players into the squad and they'll grow as will the likes of Kane trippier Maguire stones and pickford.
It's far from doom and gloom and you have to take the positives from this world cup.
On another note how great has it been not to have to read about the English hooligans and read about the team instead.
Keep the faith

14 Jul 2018 21:18:06
Great post ff

14 Jul 2018 22:57:06
Somebodies changed their tune having moaned about Southgates initial team selections and now holding the same players up as a team to add to?

England are on the up thanks to some proper infrastructure being put in at all levels with the same manager bringing them through. We are on the rights lines at last just like Forest?

15 Jul 2018 00:01:12
Plain fact is we lack a hazard, had he been in an England shirt we would have won. we lack a real world class player, and please nobody mention Kane, he is hamstrung by an obvious lack of pace.

15 Jul 2018 09:04:27
We reached a semi final but that is misleading in the respect that we should have when you look at who we played. Beating poor sides doesn't make us a good side. Average at best. England won't be winning a major tournament anytime soon. Nowhere near good enough.

15 Jul 2018 12:14:22
Incidentally, Ff799, you wouldn't have read or heard anything regarding English hooligans because they were scared to death of the Russian hooligans so most of them if not all of them wouldn't have gone over.

15 Jul 2018 13:02:05
Try reading post red I did say I didn't rate the side or the manager,but they did well with all their inexperience,semis were good considering I didn't think Intially we'd get to the quarters.
Something to build on hopefully.

15 Jul 2018 15:42:39
That's what you call good policing psycho,No pussy footing around like the French did.

14 Jul 2018 16:45:43
Well that just shows how good England are totally outclassed against a good team.

Agree9 Disagree5

14 Jul 2018 18:01:01
Sadly this team flattered to deceive . Jones excuse me a midfielder ? Delph. For me Trippier Maguire Pickford stood out over the weeks plus Stone. Kyle walker in a central defence three was found out against Croatia. He is not a Central defender at Man City. A lost opportunity for a final appearance that will never be as easy again

14 Jul 2018 18:24:37
As predicted. Look ordinary at best against good sides.

14 Jul 2018 18:49:13
So we played 2 half decent teams and lost 3 games against them.sounds about right

14 Jul 2018 19:34:30
Back three didn't work, no midfield creators, Sterling and Alli just fell over, Kane only does penalties really. Lots of Tippy-tappy sideways and backwards passing, the bread-man would be proud. Come up against a half-decent side and they were clueless.

14 Jul 2018 20:21:48
Proud of our boys. Nobody thought they would do semi,s. Progress made. No embarrasing defeats and we kept the ball. Scored goals. I have loved it. I hope youngsters coming through play for their clubs. Garath has the right system so now we need to move on past Delph, Young and Sterling. Play Lallana central and find a striker who can play off Kane. Hold the ball. Future is good fellas. Positivity.

14 Jul 2018 22:56:58
Beating bad sides is not progress.

15 Jul 2018 10:00:30
Redfin, completely agree, we'll be seeing the same whingers as soon as we lose our first game this season, some people can't help themselves, it's pretty funny to be honest.

14 Jul 2018 12:03:01
Have just been reading up on David Campbell. Another of football's nearly men. Good to see he's now putting back into the game. Memories anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2018 13:19:48
Think he played for NI??

15 Jul 2018 10:34:14
Yes he did Rogie and they made it into a film.

14 Jul 2018 11:27:45
Would Colback be better than Bridcutt ?

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Jul 2018 15:49:06
Yes I would say so

14 Jul 2018 16:46:35
No way.

14 Jul 2018 17:04:04
Bridcutt grew better toward season end. Very tudy player i thought
