Squad
« on: August 04, 2015, 03:27:27 PM »
As I see it, this is what we have at present:

GK - Myhill, Rose, Foster (Injured)

RB - Dawson, Gardner, Chester
LB - Brunt, Lescott, McClean
CH - Lescott, McCauley, Chester, Olssen, Dawson

CM - Fletcher, Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Gardner
RM - McManaman, Morrison, Gardner Berahino
LM - McClean, Brunt, Berahino

CF - Berahino, Lambert, Ideye, Anichebe

I make that 18 fit players, leaving a shortfall of 4 to complete JP's 22 man squad.
Ideally, what 4 positions would you like adding to?
I think:
1 x CM
1 x RM
1 x LM
1 x GK

That might be the pool Pulis will pick from but we've also got Sessegnon Pocognoli and Gamboa. Unless these are moved on I don't see the 3 or 4 additions everyone expects.

Same here I'm quite happy with our squad personally just one more winger needed for me of a better ilk than mcclean and macca.

I think it may stay the same bar a winger unless we can get shot of a few players that pulis won't use, Seems a waste of four or so squad places.

Yep need to free up space and funds.Doubt if we get much for the ones that need to go though.

The squad is paper thin if you take into account the players that Pulis won't use. He's already said we are looking for a 'few more'.

No reason we can't get 5/6 million for Victor, sess, poco, gamboa.

Last line of the report: “I’m not going to say how many (players we need) but it is quite a few.”

O'Neil might be in and around the squad too. Covering defensive mid and right back.

Otherwise I think Gamboa and Poco are cactus. Sess and one of vic/brown are at the departure gate. Pulls will bring in 4 or 5 depending on who he can get his hands on.

I counted 17 players today that we have at this moment in time that TP will use.
That is fairly thin I think and we desperately need to move out the four that he won't use in order to bring in more players.

That's not including the Injury to Gmac so currently 16 players, I imagine Rose will be on the bench v citeh to.
