    Jonny Howson Song

    Nicked from the Wrath

    Oohhh Jonny Howson''s magic,

    he wears a magic hat

    He came from Leeds United,

    he didn''t fancy that

    Now he plays for Norwich, he wears the famous eight

    We know he''ll play for England, he''s so f**king great.

    yet another name? Alderweireld of Ajax

    It wasn''t a quote in reference to a move to Norwich either. It was said at least three months ago http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2306186/Ajax-Belgium-defender-Toby-Alderweireld-gives-green-light-Liverpool-move.html

    He may have changed his opinion.

    You're the gaffer - your squad?

    I rate both Ryan and Elliott Bennett but they wouldn''t make my 1st Eleven on paper. It shows how far we''ve come and the depth of the squad we have.

    Good times if you ask me; when we have that calibre of player in the squad and not necessarily in the 1st eleven.

    Sorry to write players off Haddock but it''s all about opinions and IMO the players I have listed are not at the level of others in our squad. In your opinion they might be and that''s what is great about football.

    Ultimately it''s not my opinion or your opinion that counts but on a message board we are allowed to discuss our opinions.

    In my opinion A.N other is a great player who will improve our squad immensely ;-)

    Agreed PurpleCanary and I would still like to see us strengthen, particularly in defence. We let in a lot of goals last season and I know there is an argument for this being the result of our attacking philosophy but I''d still like to see us improve.

    I would say a left back is a given with the lack of numbers in this area assuming Whittaker was brought in for competition at right back. Even Whittaker may yet be out for longer than expected - we''ve had very little information on his injury.

    Good teams JP and I liked Martin at Centre back but no Turner? I think Hughton has brought him in to add some experience to the defence.

    I like your team CA and it would be similar to mine if I opted for a 4-4-2. I just think with the amount of midfielders we have we are most likely to be lining up in a 4-5-1 this season.

    We have so many options this season and hopefully still have time to add a little bit more quality at the back.

    So, with the squad coming together nicely ahead of our first game, I''ve been giving my 1st and 2nd string preference some thoughts and who I would play and who I would leave out. My preferences are below. Feel free to add your own.

    1st Team:


    Martin A.N Other Turner A.N Other

    Howson A.N. Other

    Snodgrass Pilkington



    2nd Eleven:


    Whittaker Ayala R.Bennett Tierney

    Fox Johnson

    E.Bennett Surman








    K. Smith








    I think we have a very strong squad with good quality competition in virtually every position. As you can see from my line ups IMO I would still like to see us sign a left-back, a centre half and a defensive midfielder with the capability to push for a start in the 1st eleven. I would be happy to see any of the 22 in the 1st eleven this season and think they would all do a great job.

    IMO we have 5 players who are surplus to requireents and I would look to move on. I like all 5 players and they have been great for us but I believe the progress that has been made with the squad has left these players behind a bit.

    Sub keeper for next match?

    [quote user="Felixfan"]Can Theo. get back from Oz. in time?[/quote]

    I very much doubt it, he couldn''t even make the bus to Gillingham...what chance has he got with an international flight half way around the world?

    ....And now Lansbury..!!!!

    Cheers Bethnal, would love if this was us but I think it must be Bolton.

    ....And now Lansbury..!!!!

    My mate doesn''t know the destination for sure but he thinks it is Bolton as part of the Cahil deal. He is not a ''source'' just rumours he is hearing down that way.

    ....And now Lansbury..!!!!

    Have heard from an Arsenal supporting mate that he has been sold, anyone else able to confirm?

    The (Almost) Final 25

    Grif, I agree with swjf50 on Wilbraham. He''d fall into the surplus category, just not sure he would offer enough in the Prem.

    I think this may be the case for Lappin too but as a poster has stated above, he stays for his flexibility down the left side and central if needed.
