A new season bomb squad
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:48:59 PM »
This is the current 1st team squad from the official club website, with my opinions. Please let me know who you would keep, and who you'd bomb out right now;

Sam Johnstone                    Keep and try to sign
Jed Steer                            Keep
Mark Bunn                          Bomb......should have gone at the end of last season
Ahmed Elmohamedy            Keep
Chris Samba                       Bomb......should never have been signed
John Terry                          Bomb as soon as his contract is up
Micah Richards                    Fit with concrete shoes, and drop in the middle of the Atlantic
James Bree                         Keep
James Chester                     Keep and return the captaincy to him
Tommy Elphick                    Keep for the moment, personally I'd give him a chance alongside Chester
Alan Hutton                         See Richards, unless some club is stupid enough to take him off our hands
Richie de Laet                      Keep
Neil Taylor                           Keep
Birkir Bjarnason                   Bomb....seen better tackling and passing in Sunday League games
Mile Jedinak                         Keep
Glenn Whelan                      Bomb.....should never have been signed, slugs in my back garden have more pace
Jack Grealish                       Keep, but tell him he has to start producing regularly (when fit)
Conor Hourihane                  Keep, but tell him to get his finger out or else
Henri Lansbury                     Keep...see Hourihane
Gary Gardner                       Bomb....can somebody tell me how he got a new contract?
Andre Green                         Keep.....give him more game time, along with RHM and O'Hare.
Josh Onomah                        Keep....please!!!!
Jonathan Kodjia                    Keep
Gabby Agbonlahor                See Richards....I got pelters for suggesting binning this parasite last season
Scott Hogan                         Keep if we are going to play to his strengths
Ross McCormack                   Bomb....sell to whoever makes an offer 

I haven't added the players currently on loan.........your comments please!

Keep everyone apart from Richards, Gardner and reluctantly McCormack.

I would add Hutton and Elphick to those three as well.  Not desperate to get rid of either but they are certainly surplus to requirements if any interest comes in.  Given up hope of Agbonlahor being moved on and just waiting for his contract to run out.  Would not surprise me one iota if he's got a clause in his contract giving him the option on another year though.

Loath to get ready rid of anyone (ok, with the exception of a Richards) until we've given a new manager time to turn things around.

Still convinced that our squad is basically sound given the right coaching.

I agree totally. And the position we are in we can't afford to write a bunch of players off to a bomb squad.
