    A squad of 22 is a good place to aim but I think 18 plus Lapslie and Morgan is far more realistic with having a couple of players fill in multiple positions. When have we ever got everything we wanted?

    I can see Chuks being our fourth striker as well as a midfield option. I can also see a Bielik-like replacement come in who can play both centre back and defensive midfield. Semi Ajayi?



    Right now that leaves us five short of the realistic 18+2 number.

    I’d expect to see one be a keeper.

    So we’re needing to go out and get three more midfielders and one more striker.




    Would people be happy with for example Amos, Ajayi, Cullen, Williams/Oztumer and a striker (Nketiah?) to complete the window?
  • Could you argue that Jake Forster-Caskey is the Aribo or Cullen replacement though @Scoham?

    I was counting Lapslie and Morgan as part of the 22. Assuming there's no takeover then yeah I think it's more likely to be more like 5/6 more signings. That would then see versatile players having to cover a couple of positions as you say and probably a couple of u23s getting more involved.

    Could you argue that Jake Forster-Caskey is the Aribo or Cullen replacement though @Scoham?
    Yeah, though we'd still be looking for 7/8 midfielders in total.
  • Given a choice I'd go for Oztumer over Williams on goals but would like both. So different players.
  • It'll be interesting who (if any) of the U23s went to Spain with the first team (other than AMB as the second keeper) as that would suggest who Bowyer thinks is closest to stepping up

    No... I wouldnt

    If Amos | Ajayi | Williams / Oztimer are signed it'll surely be on permanent deals

    Cullen and Nketiah will only be two loan spots meaning we'll have three places in the team left unfilled, especially as Bowyer has said that he intends to use all five loan spots
  • It'll be interesting who (if any) of the U23s went to Spain with the first team (other than AMB as the second keeper) as that would suggest who Bowyer thinks is closest to stepping up
    Pretty sure I counted 15 players in a wide-shot, so no U23.

    We'll find out on Thursday with the friendly against Gaz

    Bowyer has mentioned that his players will get 45mins each so must be a couple more unless Bowyer and Jackson are taking part as we're six short else

  • 4 midfielders plus Aneke.  Lapslie and Morgan in an ideal world would both head to L1 for a seasons loan to go get 30+ games under their belts.  JFC is just back from a year out.  Pratley is a squad filler (decent enough but you would not want to be relying on him).  

    If we were run with ambition we would be looking for 5-6 more midfielders alone - Beilik, Cullen, Williams plus another 2-3

    Morgan will be on Prem radars b4 season is out. Key player. New Aribo. 10+ goals.

    Very much agree with that but why do you say Ajayi? Is there a rumour linking us with him or are you just using him as a random example? Just haven't heard anything about him coming to Charlton
  • Think people have kind of forgot about Reeves. He will need replacing as he played a far more important role than maybe people remember.

    Still need another 7, I would say at least, and that’s mainly midfielders.
  • Morgan will be on Prem radars b4 season is out. Key player. New Aribo. 10+ goals.
    Absolutely no chance.

    A handful of appearances near the end of the season with clubs unaware of him does not make him capable of getting anywhere near double figures, that’s even to say he will be involved and regularly.

    Lots to learn, lots to improve. There are also many far better and accomplished young players out there than young Morgan right now.

    Good, promising youngster, but no chance of your statement.
  • Nine appearances, Statbank 9th including one top three. Admits his fitness was lacking. Better players out there, yes. Bit player this season, no. Play-off starter as chosen by Bows.

    Haven’t heard anything - just on my wish list and he’d be a good fit in a position that we need to fill. He’ll probably be on the move but not to us.

    Stand out performer for Rotherham last season and won Championship player of the month in March. He was their top scorer from a defensive role and probably wouldn’t cost too much either (but still too much for Roland’s budget).
  • I can see 5 more coming;

    1 GK (Amos?)
    1 CB/DM (Bielik?)
    1 CM (Cullen?)
    1 CAM (Williams?)
    1 CAM/CF (Oztumer?)

    Given the circumstances, I’d be happy with that, if we don’t get Cullen or Bielik, the replacements for them are vital. 
  • Ideal world from that I woukd like:

    Gk, RCB, CDM, CM, CM, 10, 10, St, St. 

    Suspect in reality the RCB/CDM will be the same player (particularly if we can attract Bielik back). Also reckon it will be 3 from the 2 10s and 2 strikers depending on where we see Aneke playing. 

    Amos, New, Bielik, Cullen, Prem loan, Oztumer, Williams, Nkietah, Eaves. Would be amazing although dont reckon many of them are within reach. But we will see if that changes near the end of the window.

    Yeah that'd be the dream tbh. With that squad we'd have a good chance of staying up, but tbh I can't see Eaves, Nketiah, Cullen or Bielek signing. 
  • @Scoham. I thought I'd read somewhere that Dan Birch had not been retained? Also wasn’t sure about Ben Dempsey but only on the basis he disappeared from u23 in last 2 months of the season.
  • @Scoham. I thought I'd read somewhere that Dan Birch had not been retained? Also wasn’t sure about Ben Dempsey but only on the basis he disappeared from u23 in last 2 months of the season.
    Neither were mentioned on the list of players released

    You might be right, I’m only going off the released list. Could they have been missed or left during the season?

    It does look like we have too many midfielders in the u23s. I guess we’ll find out at some point in the next few months.

  • Birch left the club in March, Zemura left at Christmas. U23s out in Spain are Brendan Sarpong-Wireu and Alfie Doughty.

    Looks like we lost Zemura to Bournemouth. Why didn’t the club mention it? Last mention of Birch I can find was when he was sent off while playing for the u23s in March. Did he go to another club?
  • Is that Taylor Maloney next to Naby?


  • Didn't Taylor Malone go on the trip last summer?  Is he still around?

    I’ll miss his 50 touches before the pass and the wayward corners.

    in all seriousness, he did play quite a lot of games
