Guessing as no news on Watson at this point he will probably go the same way as Jones.

Does JB dare to start the season with Pollock and McWilliams as the midfield two?

I know we still have plenty of signings to come (maybe) but is the team as it stands on paper that bad?  Grin

                         GK

     Harriman Dyche Horsfall Mills

   Hoskins McWilliams Pollock Pinnock

            Chuk      Kabamba

No Sowerby or Rose? Iím not arguing as neither has done anything at the club to merit a place in the side.

It was a tongue in cheek post to be fair, thought the emoji might give it away......

Obviously lots of work to be done, but I'm would not mind seeing Pollock and McWilliams given a go together.

Too often we look like we have a decent crop of youngsters, give them five minutes off the bench and then release them.

Why don't we actually gave some of them some game time, and see how they get on? Realistically I don't see us challenging this season, guessing the aim will be to avoid the drop again.

Sowerby and Rose have both been reasonably successful at this level, with Rose scoring over 50 goals and Sowerby excelling in a loan spell at Carlisle.I think both may have a part to play this year if they can earn Brady's trust.

To be fair to Rose he's a decent finisher but didn't suit the lone striker 4-5-1/ 4-3-3 systems which Brady was forced to play due to the limitations of our personnel. He could thrive in a standard 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 with decent service and Brady has hinted that he wants to play two up front. On the other hand, I wouldn't be massively surprised if he moved on.

I think Sowerby would be fine as a partner for McWilliams at the base of a 4-2-3-1. I didn't see much creativity or goal threat from him though so I'd be a tad concerned if he was deployed in an advanced position. Having said that, this is a completely different division: we're not going to be playing teams who have 70%+ possession and someone like Sowerby could well come into his own.

8 goals and 6 assists last season, you could say he was our best player?

After stepping up to league 1 and being one of the players who did their ability justice through sheer effort...will that improve him for our tilt in league 2. Just asking, don't fancy being vilified for this post!

You wonít be, you are fully entitled to praise/support/criticise Hoskins. Seen enough of Hoskins to appreciate him; the way he slotted that goal against Burton is a lasting impression for me.

Seems Col U have signed two 35 year old very experienced Championship players from Ipswich, with a slightly younger Freddie Sears lined up too.
Will be interesting to see if signing all that experience and pedigree pays off. Hard to imagine it won't if they have youthful legs around that spine.

Itís easy to write off old players but we all know how important Ian Taylor was to us and Wes Hoolahan was pivotal to Cambridge getting promoted at 39. I donít think I would have gone for Chambers or Sears but who knows.

Signing older players is a bit of a dilemma - you never know if you are getting them in the season that is just beyond where they should have stopped playing, where either their legs have gone or they start picking up niggling injuries that mean they are rarely available. That said, if you get lucky, you get a very good player that you may not have been able to otherwise afford who brings experience, a calming influence and a lot of nous, not to mention a player that just wants to keep playing football.

I guess it's just a case of being prepared to flip a coin and seeing which one you get!

With his injury record, experience and leadership qualities he would have been a great captain for us. Good signing for Col Utd.
He'll have a couple of years left in him.

Agreed, people forget that Matty Taylors goals and assists were what kept us up after Wilder left, despite fact his legs had gone. Clarke Carlisle helped steady the ship to when he came in, even though he was past his best. We even saw the benefit of Sheehan last year, just a shame his injury record was so bad.
I would hold no objection for old championship/league one campaigner (with a good fitness record) coming in in the twilight of his career.  Would also help plays like Horsfall and McWilliams.
