Not perhaps such a big squad? 23:08 - May 20 with 1114 viewsmonty_radio

Although, as various posters have totted it up today, inc Phil, we currently have a squad of 34 it seems to me that, judging by Lambert's preferences so far, only 17 could really be in line for an extended spell if the season were starting today, these being:

Janoi DONACIEN
Luke CHAMBERS
Gwion EDWARDS
Cole SKUSE
Kayden JACKSON
Ellis HARRISON
Jon NOLAN
Teddy BISHOP
Flynn DOWNES
Aristote NSIALA
Andre DOZZELL
Josh EMMANUEL
Myles KENLOCK
Alan JUDGE
Luke WOOLFENDEN
Bartosz BIALKOWSKI or HOLY
Jack LANKESTER

Freddie would likely not be ready, and Donacien an unlikely pick.

We’ll be recruiting 4 or 5 now I’d imagine.

Not surprised that 7 senior players were released but it does mean we have to recruit a little bit extra. Especially with 6 loan players returning.

Also, you’ve forgot Danny Rowe and Jordan Roberts.

Incl Phil? Didn’t realise he was in the squad? Good option at left back.

I hope Rowe is given an opportunity to show what he can do.

Surely worth a run out at this level now for us?

Likewise hope he is given an opportunity, think wide options of Lankester, Edwards, Judge and Rowe are v good at this level.

The only problem Rowe could have is if Lambert reverts to diamond, where he will have to be in line behind Judge for the no.10 role. But he’s played there before at Lincoln so it wouldn’t be completely new to him.

We have 34 professional players on our books who have to PAID . Too many considering some will be unlikely to even play .

Left back in the changing room is Phil's best position these days.

surely that includes our U23 squad, who would all be on a Pro deal

I just can’t see it personally. Been here 2 and a half years of which a year (give or take) have been spent across 2 loan spells at Lincoln, with the other 18 months spent injured/out of favour (across 3 different managers too).

That's why I left Rowe (and Roberts) out of my O.P. - because it was my list of those whom Lambert seemed likely to use freely and frequently. Obviously, if that's half-way correct, as others have said, we still have way too many on the books.

I think we'll see a fair bit of outgoing loans.

From that wider squad we need to produce:

A League team + bench + spares
Cup team + bench + spares times three (considerable overlap with each other and the above - but unlikely the League squad could play all those fixtures as well)
Injury cover for each of the above
Several players for the U23 squad

Given some of the 34 are inexperienced youth players, some have long-term injuries, a few more may leave and some are decidedly fringe, we're soon finding ourselves stretched already, let alone if the squad is trimmed further.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?
