20/21 Squad

Postby faerun exile » September 4th, 2020, 12:35 pm

I think, a squad of 23 currently if you include 17 yr old Joe Woodiwiss. Defence and attack ok but midfield is light. Balance a little better with Benno in midfield - squad taking shape.

GK: (2)
Tom King
Nick Townsend

DF: (8)
Mickey Demetriou
Kyle Howkins
David Longe-King
Ryan Haynes
Ashley Baker
Liam Shephard
Joe Woodiwiss
Brandon Cooper (in on loan - Swansea)
Marvel Ekpiteta (out on loan - Ebbsfleet)
Daniel Leadbitter (out on loan - Yeovil)

MF: (6)
Joss Labadie
Josh Sheehan
Matt Dolan
Lewis Collins
Robbie Willmott
Scot Bennett

FW: (7)
Padraig Amond
Ryan Taylor
Tristan Abrahams
Adebayo Azeez
Kevin Ellison
Saikou Janneh (in on loan - Bristol City)
Scott Twine (in on loan - Swindon)
Corey Whitely (out on loan - Boreham Wood)

Take out the under 21s (JW, LC, SJ, ST) and we can currently sign up to 4 more and stay within max squad size (22 this season) then.

Is there a maximum squad size, or just a maximum salary outlay?

I am not entirely sure of this but I think I remember someone on here saying a few days ago that the squad is limited to 21. Someone will correct me if I am wrong. Max salary outlay of course is £1.5 million. £2.5 million for L1.

22 excluding U21s and £1.5m salary cap for EFL2. U21s on loan not exempt so Janneh and Twine would be included in the 22.

So if I understand it right we currently have:
19/22 in squad - so 3 places left for loans (any age) or over 21s signed on permanent basis
plus
2 U21s - Collins, Woodiwiss

Squad limit for next season is 20 excluding U21s I believe.

Looks pretty strong to me given the circumstances. The only negatives so far is there’s no backup left back and there’s still not much width in midfield apart from Wilmott and Collins, unless some of the strikers can fill that role

I'm sure Mickey's played left back before, but ideally someone who could fill in there and play on the left wing would be perfect to bring in.

We are one light in midfield and top heavy in attack.Could do with LB cover but,we’ve had Pring and Nurse who have struggled to get enough game time so maybe we won’t bring anyone in there.

If the club communicated a bit more there would be no need for rumours or you being so smug, easy when your in the know.

Alan G Bryant.....as you seem to think you know everything or come on here with a smug attitude due to you having the gift of hindsight can you confirm whether the rumour I heard today about Azzez is true ???

I heard he has agreed to terminate/ has terminated his contract with the club so he can concentrate on coaching kids at KIXX Bromley and playing part time with a team local to the area he lives/ was brought up in ???
