Rudd''s under-21, so two spaces.

Despite what Lambert said on Monday, I''d be amazed if one was not a goalkeeper.

I can also see Lansbury/Pacheco joining, although neither will need to be registered.

One space left for January then!

It''s nothing to do with ''spaces for January''

If a squad has 25 players it MUST submit a squad of at least 25 players. Therefore, two of Hughes, Smith, Cody and whoever else must be included.

The squad is then resubmitted after January to allow for changes.

No, it really doesn''t.

As many have pointed out, you are under no obligation to name 25, as Arsenal/etc have demonstrated, I believe you must name a minimum of 15 players though, which we obviously will.

No it doesn''t. They just can''t use any players they omit from the list.

I would be amazed if Lambert submitted fewer than 25 names, seems pointless.

So, do we think that the 2 spaces left in the 25 will go to new signings (Lansbury/Pacheco?) or squad fillers (S Smith/O Johnson/McDonald etc?)

Neither Lansbury nor Pacheco will be 21 so if we signed them they wouldn''t count in the 25 anyway.
