CURRENT First Team Squad

Postby FCBurnley » Wed Jul 03, 2019 4:34 pm

Obviously early days but this is what we currently have to choose from ( by position)

GK Heaton, Pope
RB Bardsley Lowton
CB Tarks Mee Long Dunne ( Gibson ? )
LB Taylor
RM Gudmundsson Hendrick
CM Cork Westwood Defour
LM McNeil Lennon Brady
ST Wood Barnes Vydra ( Wells ? Crouch? )

Obviously need LB and CM and ST. Maybe need RM and CB. Would assume Gibson Wells and Crouch will be gone pre season. Maybe Vydra and Heaton.

Going to be an interesting few weeks

If I remember correctly Robbie Brady and Bardsley have both played LB. Also has Hart left?

Hendrick is a CM, and Lennon is a RM.

Why have you put Gibson in brackets and not Dunne?

Hendrick is a CM primarily, who can play in more than one position.
You'll get crucified on here if you don't put him in what people consider the right position when talking about him :roll: :lol:

I'd hope it was time for Lennon to move on, but I'm not holding much hope.

Id hope we start the season with three new first teamers. But its incredibly unlikely we will start september with any more than 3 new additions tbh.

Frustrating but pointless worrying.

Looks like he’s already moved to left midfield..

OMG such a poor OP on what could have been a great thread..... boredom has really set into our early season....

How about what would everyone’s first XI and back ups be.......

And what would we like to see

As named in the original post that leaves two incoming to get a squad of 25 as we have 3 keepers and McNeill wont count but I think Dunne would.

Thought it was a good and worthwhile OP to summarise where we are in a clear way. Plenty of threads full of peoples' want-lists, frustrations and speculations.
