    Bingo!
    Why does Robins play him so deep? He is quick enough over the first 5 yards which is enough if played ‘up top’. while he’s missed a few, I think he’ll be a decent goalscorer for us.

    Predicting this outcome

    Released at end of contracts
    Burge
    O’Brien
    Grimmer
    Andreu
    Beavon

    Leaving with possible deals being rejected
    Willis
    Davies

    End of Loans
    Sterling
    Meyler
    Enobakhare
    Thomas

    Made available for transfer.
    Brown
    Allassani

    This summer
    Offers and interest likely to be seriously considered for anyone in the squad if it means MR will have additional funds to strengthen the team and it can be improved as a result or player and agent push the move away.

    Very likely one maybe two strikers may depart for some incoming targets with some wheeling and dealing being done to shape the side.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a Championship team decides to take a chance on Hiwula this summer and offer us £2m for him.

    Would be very difficult for Robins/City to turn down.

    Agreed but would you play him on his own in a 4231 which seems to have worked or switch into maybe a 442 alongside a target man ?

    I think is right but it also means that the chances of kicking on from this year are less as there will be so much change in the team., particularly in defence. I would be sad about Allesani. You do wonder why we acquired him (and Meyler for that matter). We need three brutes of differing types - a centre-half, and thuggish midfielder and big target man.

    Yeah I see your point, it’s a squad with the spine of the side that needs work this summer.
    I place the definite contracted squad at this with first team experience or expected names for consideration (Don’t believe I’ve missed anyone) in a 4231 formation.

    ------------*******-------------
    ------------*******-------------

    *****--Williams--Hyam--Mason
    ****-Thompson-Drysdale-Brown
    *****---*****--Rose--McCallum

    --------Kelly-----Bayliss-------
    -----Westbrooke--Shipley-----

    -Wakefield----*****----Hiwula-
    --***** ------*****-------JJ-
    -***** ------*****-----Allassani

    -----------Bakayoko---------
    ------------Chaplin-----------
    ------------Biamou-----------
    -----------Ponticelli-----------


    It’s a very youthful inexperienced side especially in the defensive area. Interesting summer ahead

    Very lightweight in midfield and Chaplin cannot play upfront on his own.
    Last season we needed to rebuild the squad after promotion but it seems now its an even bigger rebuild to be done. New keepers new centre halfs new midfielders and new striker/strikers.
    Our signings last year are now looking quite poor with only really Hiwula looking like persevering with. Our loan signings were a lot better ie Stockdale, Sterling, Thomas, Bright and Meyler with Meyler looking the weakest link due to not playing so some of our recruitment worked but clearly it needs to improve dramatically on the permanent front because thats partly our lifeblood...
    Out of all the players that played for us theres only 2 i would love to keep in Thomas and Bright wouldnt worry me to see any of the others leave with possibly Kelly added to the list.
    I sense a biggish rebuild coming up if we are to show real ambition so let the revolving doors start in earnest

    The Meyler signing was the strangest hardly played and especially given our goalkeeping situation at the time a decent keeper recruited then would have been a better bet imo

    Lol, no one is going to offer 2 million for Hiwula that’s just laughable.
    He’s worth £250k tops.

    Sounds like Willis was offered 100k signing on fee plus 4K a week but has said he’s honoring his Luton deal

    Robins can save the ink and paper on this list as it looks like the players will let them out before

    Not making comparisons obviously but the spain team in recent years was neither that quick or tall but found advantages. Its not fifa 19 where you automatically have loads of pace of you're small.

    i personally think that willis is already gone, just not letting on, think Davies might have something up his sleeve and I'm sure Grimmer will not be short on offers. I bet Burge is worried a little after a few poor performances, but he will end up in the championship somehow as a second keeper.

    i think the players told they can go will be
    Brown,
    RA,
    Bayliss for a decent fee.
    Maycock
    that centre back we signed from Lewes who could have retired for all i know as he has gone off the face of the earth.

    Good luck to him. It amazes me how few footballers seek to play abroad, it's an occupation where your skillset is accepted universally

    Could potentially be a decent life out there (depending on where he is going). Get some sort of scholarship as well.
