EFL confirms 25 man squads


Recommended Posts

The EFL has published the squad lists of every team for the second half of the season:

EFL.com squad lists

No Wiemann, Adelakun or Pring - their injuries must be the most serious and their seasons are over. Shame as Weimann would certainly improve our attack and Pring would be an option at left wingback.  Under 23 players, including Semenyo, Massengo, Nurse and the Edwards brothers are on a separate list - I didn't post it here so the post doesn't get stupidly long! 

1 Baker, Nathan Luke
2 Bakinson, Tyreeq Jamal Adeshina Oliveira
3 Bentley, Daniel Ian
4 Dasilva, Jay Rhys
5 Diedhiou, Famara
6 Hunt, Jack Paul
7 Kalas, Tomas
8 Lansbury, Henri George
9 Mariappa, Adrian Joseph
10 Martin, Christopher Hugh
11 Mawson, Alfie Robert John
12 Moore, Taylor David
13 Nagy, Adam
14 O'Dowda, Callum Joshua Ryan
15 O'Leary, Max Edward
16 Palmer, Kasey Remel
17 Paterson, Jamie Charles Stuart
18 Rowe, Thomas Malcolm
19 Sessegnon, Zeze Steven
20 Vyner, Zachary George Onyego
21 Walsh, Liam
22 Watkins, Marley Joseph
23 Wells, Nahki Michael
24 Williams, Joseph Michael
25 Wollacott, Joseph Luke

Officially confirms that Moore and Vyner are NOT young players.  Does my head in that even yesterday I saw people saying that one of the problems was we had a very young defence. No we did not.  We had a young player at left wing back.  That’s it.

Agreed. Vyner has truly made the step up this season by establishing himself in the first team.

Still massive question marks over Taylor Moore. He’s got the rest of the season, with Baker and Mawson out, to prove himself.

However, I think this summer could be the end of the road for him at City.

I really think Moore is far more comfortable in a back 4. He looks a bit confused in a back 3 how to position himself. Yesterday and Norwich games for example.

The most interesting thing about that list is that 20% of them have more than 1 middle name. That must be well above the national average. 
At least were ‘up there’ in something  🤣

He is not a left sided player any more than Mariappa is - Kalas has played that side and is the most experienced defender. He could have taken some responsibility to protect Towler. Captain in name only for me.

Just as a thought on this.

If we’ve now named our 25 man squad, which includes two out for season (Martin/Mawson), does that now preclude us from signing a free agent left back as he can’t be registered? Or are we allowed to permanently swap one of the 25 out should we make a signing?

What’s the crack with Freddie Hinds now? After scoring a few in the cup run, what’s happened to him? 
IIRC he went out on loan and it didn’t work out, he’s obviously not going to feature for our first team any time soon...

Cant wait! Getting him on the pitch should epitimise the joke we are currently viewing! 🙄

Because our track record of players from Aberdeen has been so successful in the past? Oh sorry, I just remembered Richard Foster. Question answered in the negative!

Marley Watkins would improve our MF at the moment I have no doubt. Remember the last couple of games he played for us, Barnsley and Cardiff, did a very good job and added real physicality to the side and happy to mix it. Was poorly treated (like many) by Johnson IMO, and I questioned if he'd ever played football  when I saw him first.

He looks completely lost on that left side, starting with him and Towler against Sarr was one of the most ridiculous decisions ever. In a 3 Vs Sheff U when he played further right, I thought he did well. Holden should have told him just to sit in yesterday, he shouldn't have gone ahead of Towler, he just left space for Sarr to have a field day.

Yep. I remember Holden saying about with a back 3 he will want one to step out when the opposing team has one central striker. I'm not sure Moore is confused by when to do this like in Norwich game where he was caught out. In back 4 I think he looks far more assured as it's probably more simple to understand.

Rowe when left centre back of the 3 could be frustrating in how he would be a bit too deep. But to be fair a player needs to know what they are capable of. Rowe knows he lacks pace, so prefers to leave room for him to not be too exposed. 

Moore lacks pace and should really not be giving himself so much to do in that situation. Would maybe have been ok if it was Kalas who is quicker. 

As far Moore on the ball, I really like him left of a centre back pairing. Thinking Charlton game last season, even Sheffield Utd when going down to 10, he seems to like bringing it out left centre in a back 4.

But left of a back 3 he seems a lot less comfortable with. 

On the Watkins point, I rate him. I'd love it if he was fit and match sharp. He'd be involved for sure. 

Players we will have returning will help massively in hopefully seeing us at least have an okay last couple of months!

@JonDolman stupid thing is Taylor Moore looked like he had pace when he came here.  He’s quite too heavy now, and looks slower.

I never saw that even early on. Really noticeable yesterday though, that with the ball over the top, unless he had 5 yards start he struggled.

If anyone still doubts we have a lot of dead wood they should read the above 2 lists.   One positive I have ongoing is the knowledge that 11 of that 25 plus the 3 not included are not contracted to us next year.  A good manager will look at this and think they can make a big difference and quickly.

My initial post should have said “top” heavy, not “too” heavy.

Did well enough at Aberdeen for McInnes to want him permanently. Couple of sheep sh*****s that I know were quite pleased with him. Puts in a shift every game. Few assists and the odd goal. Another unlucky injury. Think he would of got a run of games back in the team after his loan spell.
