The Squad 2014/2015….
Played every game last season and is a strong player for Championship level. Almost at the height of his potential now but at age of 25 no need to replace any time soon.
Backup GK who is significantly worse than Hansen. Didn't play one game last season and simply in squad as backup.
16 year old GK who has potential
rating. If progresses quickly should replace Fielding as backup to Fielding by end of season/start of next season.
Complete wing back who finished season as 1st choice left-back. Oldest and weakest member of starting 11 and will possibly be replaced in 1st team by start of campaign.
Backup to Catala on the left side of defence. Expect a reduction in game time this season after playing a part in 38 games last season.
Summer signing utility player who will start the campaign at right-back. Will be a key member of the side this campaign especially as he can play in a number of positions.
Backup RB who made 42 appearances last season but should see much less pitch time this season. Interest from other Championship sides which could mean he will depart soon.
Like Kieftenbeld can play in number of positions and will be a key squad member this season. His premiership experience and ball playing qualities will build up attacks from defence.
Vice Captain who will lead from the back. After finishing the season in his preferred CB position will look to build on from strong finish to last season.
Young backup CB who played 43 times last season but like many will be more of a backup this campaign.
4th choice CB. Same standard as Williams. Club captain but as he won't be starting Strandberg will be captain on the pitch most of the time. Played 41 times last season but poor discipline let him down (sent off 4 times).
Replacement for Emmanuel-Thomas on the left wing. Not as attack minded but better quality. 2nd best player in squad. Can also play in CM.
Erik de Lanlay
Attacking right winger who was one of the stars last season. Still only 22 and will hope to improve even more from last campaign.
Not a great player. Just here for cover in MR position.
Good ball winning midfielder who will protect the back 4 and allow the other midfielders to create/score goals.
Advanced playmaker who is only 23 and has potential to grow this season again. With Zuculini alongside him will have more licence to get forward this season.
Young deep lying playmaker who will not get much game time this season as is simply a backup.
Deep lying forward who will be the main replacement for Baldock this season. Can also play on left wing. Best player in the squad.
Young poacher who again will hope to replicate the goals scored by Baldock last season. Bags of potential and proven Championship goalscorer.
1st reserve forward. Regular last season who scored 26 goals last season but will be backup to Choupo-Moting and Vydra this season.
Young 16 year old forward with
potential. Will get experience in reserve/U18 squad this season.
