Guest jackmisfit Posted December 7, 2006 Share Posted December 7, 2006 When the transfer window opens, and with the current state of the squad, how many players will come in and how many will go? When I look at the current team, it seems that the only player that they will sell will be Luque. (I only say Luque because Roeder doesn’t play him and Luque has said that he wants to go). The squad without plugging holes with reserve players looks like this: Given (Harper/Krul) Solano (Carr) Taylor (Bramble) Ramage (Moore) Babayaro ( ) Milner (Dyer) Emre ( ) Parker (Butt) N’Zogbia (Duff) Sibierski ( ) Martins ( ) This line up would be if Roeder continues to play Solano at RB and it also excludes Owen and Ameobi because of their injuries. This bare bones lineup looks like at least four players need to be brought in to strengthen the club. At minimum, they need to bring in a LB, a midfielder and two strikers. Of course this all excludes the other (hopefully short term) injuries that the team currently has, (Krul, Carr, Dyer, Moore, Bramble, Duff, Parker, etc…) When the window opens, do you think that Roeder will get rid of more players than Luque? Will the team bring in more or less than four players? (As a fan, there are players that I’d like to see the tail end of, but realistically, for the last couple of years it’s always been about how thin the squad currently is. At this point, almost every player you sell would need to be replaced. Also, the lineup I presented is always up to argument as to who starts and which formation to use. I put the line up together without deep thought, just to use as a starting point). Other points to consider are: Will Owen be back this season? and will he be fit enough? If Luque is sold, will he bring enough money? Does the team have enough money to bring in enough players to fill the holes? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
