Thread: 2017-18 Squad List

  1. #1

    2017-18 Squad List

    So following the excellent news of Ameobi signing the squad list for the coming season is shaping up. So far we have;

    Adam Colin
    Carl Dickinson
    Richard Duffy
    Haydn Hollis
    Matt Tootle
    Elliott Hewitt
    Rob Milsom
    Michael O'Connor (Injured)
    Curtis Thompson
    Terry Hawkridge
    Kevin Nolan (Player/Manager)
    Jonathan Forte
    Lewis Alessandra
    Shola Ameobi
    Jon Stead
    Alan Smith (Player/Coach) ?
    Mike Edwards (Player/Coach) ?

    Apprentices offered development contracts
    Dominic Hill-Brown
    Peter Dearle
    Jordan Richards
    Joe Searson-Smithard

    What additions would people like to see? I would say a second choice keeper, a central defender, along with young striker.

    An attack-minded central midfielder would not go amiss.

    I'd say we're at least 6 players short still. Smith/Nolan/Edwards should only be used in an injury crisis!

    That is basically 13 players (including Hollis ) if you discount the management

    We need a goalkeeper, right back, left back, 2 centre backs, 2 midfielders and 2 strikers under 30

    And youngish pacy striker, can't see Stead & Ameobi playing together as often as we'd like. Forte was used as a winger when he played alghough his best position is down the middle.

    I wrote on another thread we still need seven more signings - goalkeeper, left back, two centre halves, playmaker, enforcer and pacy forward.

    As it stands, the current squad is desperately short of pace and muscle in key areas. Be interesting to see how many we look to sign permanently and how many on loan.

    I think we will not get a new goalkeeper if you think back to when Loach went out on loan we had the young lad on the bench and that's the way they will go until January at least.

    Agree about needing a left back, might be only CB, 2 midfielders and one striker Could go for one from the National League noticed a couple have gone to L1 teams.

    With the additional 4 new signings alluded to by Alan Hardy last night and discounting the management we can now field not only a full team but we can also fill ALL the seats on the bench.

  9. #9
    Hardy's tweet refers to 4 new signings before the season starts. My guess is that there'll also be a couple of loan signings between the season starting and the transfer deadline on 31 August.

  10. #10
    That team picks itself, and that's not a good thing!

  11. #11
    Certainly need a new left back dikensons old and slow and didn't look good enough at all

    If this is the case then I'd hope that it's 4 quality/first team signings and not 'utility players'.

    Regarding loans hopefully KN can use his contacts and get some genuine quality youngsters.

    So, possibly the squad place breakdown looks something like this:-

    GK---Adam Collin
    GK---Joe Searson-Smithard

    RB---Matt Tootle
    RB---Jordan Richards

    LB---Carl Dickinson
    LB--- ?

    CD---Richard Duffy
    CD---Haydn Hollis
    CD---?
    CD---?
    CD---Mike Edwards

    MF---Elliott Hewitt
    MF---Rob Milsom
    MF---Michael O'Connor (Injured)
    MF---Curtis Thompson
    MF---Kevin Nolan
    MF---?
    MF---Alan Smith

    W-----Terry Hawkridge
    W-----Lewis Alessandra
    W/ST-Jonathan Forte
    W/ST-?

    ST---Shola Ameobi
    ST---Jon Stead
    ST---?

    Obviously there are variations, in that Elliott Hewitt can also play right-back and centre-back (allegedly), Curtis Thompson can play wide (but is undoubtedly best in centre-mid) and Jordan Richards looks like the type who could play a number of positions, especially when he gains more experience.

    One concern I have is that Lewis Alessandra may have been brought in with the intention of playing him on the wing, yet fans at other clubs have commented he disappears in that position and plays best as an attacking central midfielder.

    I've left the two newest youngsters out for now, on the assumption they will probably be loaned out to the non-league for starters.

    Shouldn't Osborne and Howes appear on the list somewhere?

  15. #15
    I get the two Jordan/Jordon Richards' mixed up, the one that we've seen a reasonable amount of is the one we've given a trial right? Has the other one already signed a contract?

    Pedro's son is the one I'm referring to above, who is Jordan I believe. I think/hope he's the one under proper contract, because he showed real signs of promise when he came into the team last season.

    Whereas, I assume Jordon is the one invited back for trial. I don't know much about him, other than that it will be very confusing for Charlie Slater and Mark Stallard if we sign and play both!

    Speaking as a former winger, when wingers become invisible, it's usually because nobody is getting the ball out wide, wingers are just as prone as strikers to poor service. What they do with that service is another matter but you have to have passers in the team to supply wingers if you intend to play with wide men or it's just not worth having them on the field.
