Danny Wit

back up goalkeeper

3 centre backs

3 centre mids

right winger

left winger

2 strikers


With the 6 already with us, that's a full squad of 18 players which is enough. Will require 11 new faces assuming Danny does actually re-sign.

Need some strikers in too. Last season we had a good DF and MF but up top, we lacked any real quality- I hope JA can pull it out the bag for us.

No point having a good side but lacking anyone who can put the ball in the net on a consistent basis.

I think no news probably is good news in this instance.

I would be absolutely amazed if Danny didn't sign now, without giving any prior indication of his intentions.

Surely time to start focusing on some striker options?

Assuming Danny Whit signs on that's the midfield practically sorted - could always freshen up with a loan signing at some point or we might take the young ex-Brum guy.

Probably one good striker, one backup striker, back up goalkeeper off being good to go.

12 currently signed. Danny Whit plus another 3 would give 16. That would be the bare minimum to field a team and 5 subs.

We obviously still retain the option to add in later if there is still money in the bank, but I think we should be aiming for a squad of about 20 to give us some leeway in coping with injuries, suspensions and the attritional long hard grind of a full NL season.

JA said he is looking for 17/18. As well as more firepower and a second keeper, I think another centre back who can cover at right back , or vice versa should also be a consideration.

Maybe that is just an interim figure, but I think 17 would be well short of requirements for a full season. JA is the manager, however, not me.

My 16 was a starting point for the season rather than the totally finished puzzle.

I'd rather see us start with a decent quality complement of 16 that we can add to than to see bodies for the sake of filling shirts. I'm not actually sure we had many more than 16 on the books at the end of last year if the loanees are discounted?

Still a few pieces to fall into place but I think the management team look to be putting together a competitive outfit once again!

We now need a back up goalkeeper, a centre back that can also play right back when needed, Whitaker re-signing, a right winger and 2 strikers. One of them needs to be a big experienced forward at this level.


We can assume Ryan Lloyd will play left wing after the arrival of Elliott Durrell who is an attacking midifelder. Likely to play behind Scott Wilson or another striker.

We definitely need a back up goalkeeper, in case Shwan gets injured. Anyone beyond that is likely to be a bonus - an attacking midfielder, winger or striker would be my priority if we could get one more outfield player in because we have cover in all defensive positions and at central defensive midfield.

I'm not sure what more Arthur can do to earn a contract. I can only assume if he's been offered one, he doesn't like it, or he's being advised by an agent to stick out for more. That said, I'm assuming he is still with us?

Hats off to Askey, Watson and Mark Blower.

For all the doom and gloom that was spouted in the early part of the summer, they look to have put together a balanced, competitive and exciting squad. Plenty of pace and flair, more power up front and a good, experienced spine.

I think it was about time for a refresh of the squad and the high number of loanees departing in May facilitated that. GK, Halls, McCombe, Sampson, Byrne, James moved on & probably upgraded plus a few wild cards who'll provide a bit of excitement.

We've lost some proper quality in Holroyd and, particularly, Norburn and it'd have been nice to keep Browne but overall I think there's plenty to be intrigued about!
