O’Leary, Wollacott, Moore, Rowe, Palmer,O’Dowda, Szmodics, Nagy, Walsh, Semenyo, Paterson, maybe Fam, Watkins, Adelakun maybe Joe Williams, Hinds, Morrell plus the U23s.

Don’t anyone say we have a small squad..

I thought Adelakun had left permanently.

Second game is referred to by the club as an "internal training game". So not a full blown "pre-season friendly". 

Suspect we'll get less coverage of this second one.

I'm guessing "internal" is being used in the sense of "we're not going to ever release to the media or public what the line-ups were or what the score was".

Maybe. Personally suspect it's more along the lines of "no journalists are invited and we're not going to tweet updates through the match". I'd be surprised if we don't at least get a fulltime score mentioned in the write up for the primary game.

Nice to see Wells off to a flyer, regardless of whether Cheltenham are in League 2 or not. 

Strikers scoring goals in preseason can only be a good thing for the start of the league campaign.

How did Eliasson play in the no 10 role? I have thought for sometime that might be an interesting option.

Yep agree. I think he's got so much more to his game than step overs and crossing. Centrally he can drift to either wing as well as having chances of his own. If he is still here this season then I will be delighted. And just hope Holden sees him differently to what LJ did.

If Eliasson and Bakinson are seen as important first team players this season and not being sold or loaned out then that really does confuse me when trying to work out how we will play and what players will still be here.

Patience, grasshopper!! 😜

7 weeks or so left of the window.  I would be taking my time loaning anyone out as it stands.  A couple of injuries here or there and the dynamic changes.

If Eliasson is going, then obviously get it done, so we can use any funds allowed.

 I may be wrong but I'm guessing Bakinson was involved partly to assess him within a match situation to decide IF he is going to be part of the squad or loaned out. It may well come down to whether he did enough to prove he can be part of the squad.

However that does potentially mean that we have the following players competing for 3 midfield berths:

Williams

Nagy

Walsh

Massengo

Paterson

Palmer

Eliasson

Bakinson

Morton (although guessing loaned)

Weimann (although could be treated as a forward)

O'Dowda (although could be treated as a wing-back)

Rowe (although almost certainly will be treated as a wing-back)

 

 

Even taking out those who could be used in other positions, that is still eight or nine for three places. It is a lot of depth but some players would surely be frustrated at their playing time. Guessing some will leave on loan or permanent.

And Szmodics and Morrell
