Squad Watch 2022/23

by Snowflake Royal » 19 Jun 2022 12:51

Now we're seeing the first new signing and players renewing, thought it might be nice for a thread dedicated to how the squad is shaping up for the new season.

Any corrections welcome.

Fullbacks

Osorio - offered, not sure if accepted

Wide

Meite
T Ince
Scott

Plus offers to Hoilett, Rinomhota, Camara and Azeez.

Midfield and left back look the most pressing priorities right now.

Still a good few holes to fill in that squad, hopefully once we reach the first week of July we will have some idea of who is coming in or going, but it could ultimately take until September to truly know what our squad for the season will be, maybe even after that if there is still a free agent that can help us (like Carroll from last season).

Yep, left back and central midfield has to be our main priority. I’ll be happy if all of our transfer business is done well before the transfer window closes. Ideally, we want most of our squad to get a full preseason together. It will be good if we can take on Brighton with virtually a full squad.

If anyone in the know can give us full U23 and U18 squads, might be interesting to see who we might be surprised by at some point.

That looks like a really thorough and accurate list. I think Ashcroft is leaving. Otherwise I would hope all of the above are at the club going forward.

Looking at that list, there is some promising talent there. Our academy has been very good in the last decade or so in terms of churning out potential talents.

Even looking at the U23's, the likes of CBC, Andresson, Abbey, Dorsett, Camara, Clarke, Purcell, Samuels, Scott, Stickland and Holzman for example could feature as regular first team players for us in the future.

Craig sounds like a good signing from what others have said. Reserve judgement on Clarke of course but I hope that his signing doesn't mean that they are unconvinced by Samuels.

It may even mean Samuels might be deemed as ready for some first team involvement next season. Be it as a squad player for us or a season long loan in the EFL somewhere.

Apparently Rinomhota was involved with first team training today. Would seem a bit odd if a move was imminent.

There are hints of further signings on this tweet but not sure if it just means under 23s.

The OP has Tom Ince listed. Have we signed him ? I hadn’t anything on him signing, well happy if we have thought he put some real shifts in.

Not suggesting he's signed a new contract, just that if he was close to signing elsewhere, I doubt he'd be training with us.

Not seen it mentioned anywhere. I'm sure someone would have started a thread if he had.
