The Initial Squad….
Simon Moore (on loan for season)
The best player in my squad by quite some margin and significantly better than my other two GKs. The only problem is that I am paying him his full wages for the duration of the loan (a whopping 16,000 a week). I may need to terminate the loan but only if I find a cheaper replacement.
First choice permanant GK but Moore is much stronger. Will need to find a replacement eventually.
Not much between Fielding and Parish but Fielding is first choice. Will look to send Parish out on loan to get some game time.
Solid attacking left back who will play as a complete wing back getting forward whenever possible. Easily good enough for League 1 level.
Youngster who is not good enough and has little potential. Will need to find back up for Cunningham. Joe Bryan (ML) can fill in if Cunningham is injured/suspended.
Good standard defender. Best position is CB but I have strong players in that position so he will fill in at RB. Eventually plan to move to CB when I can find RB.
Good squad player and more natural RB than Osbourne. Is a viable option if Osbourne doesn’t work out.
Very strong player. Expect him to be the rock for me in front of Moore this season.
2nd choice CB. Been around for a while and short of confidence last season. I hope to get him back to his best.
Similar level to Fontaine and younger. If he progresses has chance to dislodge his place in first team.
4th choice CB. Average standard. Probably limited game time and will be replaced eventually.
Can play anywhere down the left. Worst player in starting 11. After replacement found will find himself as cover for LB/LM.
Injured for 9/10 Months. Last year of contract. Probably played last game for Bristol City
Defensive Winger. Again will look to replace him soon. 2nd weakest link after Bryan. My midfield flanks definitely need to be assessed.
Not a great player. Just here for cover in MR and CM positions.
Simon Gillett (on loan for season)
Solid box to box midfielder who could be important for me in middle of park this season. Will take my corners.
Like Pearson injured for around 9 months. Lucky I have Gillett on loan. May make an impact at end of season.
Young playmaker with plenty of potential. Will need to grab his spot in first team considering Kelly’s Injury.
Defensive playmaker who barring injuries will need to make his impact from bench this season
Ball winning midfielder similar level to Pack. Again may have limited game time this season.
Very strong attacking player who will be very important this season. Can play in many attacking roles and on either flank in the midfield. Expect big things from him going forward.
An advanced forward who is also my Captain and 1st choice penalty taker. Hoping his goals will lead us to strong season.
Tyrone Barnett (on loan for season)
1st reserve forward. A target man who offers something different. If players are brought in strong chance his loan will be terminated
Youngster who plays up top or on the RW. Cover for Emmanuel-Thomas and Baldock.
Young backup FC who simply is not good enough. Will be shipped out as soon as cover is brought in up front.
