Hibs just signed a striker from Forest Green Rovers for $250,000 and a defender from Yeovil!! seems they have little money to spend much like us and with them signing a striker i guess McNulty isn't heading back north to Hibs lol....

windermereROYAL As it stands nothing concerns me more than the keeper situation. while Walker is perfectly adequate has a bench warmer he`s got nothing about him yet that I`ve seen so far to pull off the saves we`ve been accustomed to over the last few seasons.

Exactly. 1 crisis at a time.

Midfield > Centreback = LW if Barrow goes > GK for me on the priority list.

Told y'all they couldn't afford him.

Hound, think you've got a few in the wrong place. Barrett more wide left. Olise more ACM.

I thought Ejaria was coming back?

Looks a bit threadbare that squad. Hopefully some decent loanees will bulk it up.

So that squad currently gives us these teams (for arguments sake):

Forget: Meyler, Kelly, McNulty, Popa and Smith

First Choice
GK: Walker
RB: Yiadom
LB: Blackett
CB: Moore
CB: McIntyre
CM: Rinomhota
CM: Swift
ACM: Loader
RW: Meite
LW: Barrow
ST: Bodvarsson

Second Choice:
GK: Southwood
RB: Gunter
LB: Obita
CB: Osho
CB: Holmes
CM: East
CM: Olise?
ACM: Barrett
RW: McCleary
LW: Baldock
ST: Novakovich

Remainder: Watson and Richards.

That second choice XI is good at fullback and not too bad for the front 3, but the midfield and central defence look Green And the first XI is a bit patchy in places. We don't even have four players who've made a first team appearance in central midfield ffs (excluding Kelly and Meyler who are clearly not wanted).

Wouldn’t completely rule Kelly out

Not sure how accurate but one report said the unwanted players wouldn’t return to preseason on Monday - be interesting to see who turns up if true

Loader as an ACM? Really? I just can't see that, I don't think he is good enough to play there.

Gotta disagree with that Ian. A past it, ineffective, aged McCleary, an average striker with a mediocre at best goal return played out of position, and a young striker who is untested at this level. Not sure how that constitutes not too bad. Would be amazed if that lot could muster a goal between them once every few games.

I am revoking my forest green season ticket. Letting go of our best players it seems this season. I will refund it and get one in club 1871 this season in support of my favourite team to make up for lost time. Come on urz!!!

Very excited for this season. We will finish mid table.

By the by, our team looks shocking. We need to, in the words of Mr D Rascal

Fix up

Look sharp

Walker hasn't made 10 appearances

Only 14 players in our squad have made more than 10 starts for us - and five of those 14 are fullbacks

its a little selective though - I know he's rubbish, but Meyler is massively experienced - the fact that less than 10 of his x hundred games have come for Reading is irrelevant. Walker has played over 200 games

Novakovich has had two full seasons at a similar standard to us as well
