BR wants a squad of 16/ 17 pros. Over the next season and 1/ 2 we will see new faces. Who in everyone's opinion are in the present squad the Def stays the maybes and the Def goes.
Some if the present regs have to be included in the goes bases on BRs philosophy and figures he deals with
08 Jan 2017 15:24:17
Def stay: Tierney Erik Jozo Sinclair Rogic Brown Armstrong Forrest Roberts if (lucky) MD LG
Maybe stay: Gordon Lustig Izzy GMS Gamboa Kolo De Vries Christie Henderson Ajer
Def Ship: Bailly Bitton Efe Commons Cifcti Fasan (if he's still here) Janko Allen Boyata.

Not bad shout Davie-I'd have the much maligned Gordon, Lustig and Izzy on my definitely stay list and Kolo and De Vries on my definitely ship list though 🍀

JFP, Izzy has been quality this year and got to admit Gordon is a new man (most of the time! ) I'd probably keep CG in fact. Just difficult if he is planning a heavy cull and looking to bring more in.

I would also keep izzy he's been a great stand in for tierney.
I would also keep lustig I'm not sure where the negativey is coming from he's always consistent.
Get shot of CG tho and bring in a decent keeper. He's fine domestic wise as we can win games regardless of his performance but if we want to have an impact in Europe it won't happen with him in goal.
Would really like Roberts to stay but it's looking highly unlikely.

Tick, I am not being negative about Lustig. Great player who brings excellent experience and a bit of versatility to team and loves the jersey. If it is a question of cutting the squad to 16 or 17 players though, I would have him on the maybe keep list especially if BR had a younger, fitter player lined up. Great as Lustig has been, he is not young and while his injuries are hopefully behind him, he no longer has the pace to play high press RB/ wingback role, particularly at CL level. If I was negative about him he would be on my definitely go list. Like you, I'd be surprised if we keep Paddy R, if we do though, it would be an astonishing coup and a real sign of the club's standing going from strength to strength.

I had forgotten about Janko! The Man Utd fans rated him. how has he done on loan at Barnsley does anyone know?
08 Jan 2017 21:46:22
Tbh davie I was just a little suprised you had CG and lustig in the "maybe keep" section when one of the players is Mr dependable and the other is the opposite.
It's each to there own tho mate imo we need to strengthen a couple other areas first.
08 Jan 2017 22:23:37
Hey guys new to this. The players I would keep would be. Lustig, Sviatchenko, Jozo, KT, O'Connell, Toure (for another year) Brown, Armstrong, Forrest, Sinclair, Rogic, LG, MD and Roberts ( hopefully) . The young players to work with. Henderson, Ajer, Allen, Christie, Eboue.
Defo get rid of. Ambrose, Boyata, GMS, McGregor, Biton, Ciftci, Commons.
Anyone else think O'Connell looks a player?
09 Jan 2017 07:30:40
I would like to see toure stay another season too malky think his experience is good for tierney and the rest of the defence.
Mcgregor is probs worth keeping I'm not so sure about Allen and Henderson tho not seen anything from either.
Would agree with rest tho mate.
