How are we shaping up......

Post  hootie63 on Mon Jul 16, 2012 12:32 am

With a month to go to the start of the new season how do we think we are shaping up and do we still need strengthening.

For me the answer is we are looking fine at the moment and im more than happy with what could be the starting line up but i still think we are a couple of experienced players short at the back , another experienced midfielder and another striker then a few kids into the squad and it would match up to most in the championship.
At the moment we have only 17 players that have been given squad numbers and of those i can still see 2 going at least so we could be even worse off, so for me squad is fine so far but still needs improving with the addition of possible 5-6 players

2 Stephen Carr Defender
3 David Murphy Defender
4 Steven Caldwell Defender
5 Pablo Ibanez Defender
7 Chris Burke Midfielder
9 Marlon King Striker
13 Colin Doyle Goalkeeper
14 Morgaro Gomis Midfielder
15 Wade Elliott Midfielder
17 Adam Rooney Striker
18 Keith Fahey Midfielder
19 Nikola Zigic Striker
22 Nathan Redmond Midfielder
23 Jonathan Spector Defender
24 Curtis Davies Defender
26 Jack Butland Goalkeeper
11 Peter Lovenkrands Striker

I'm optimistic for the eason too. Interesting to see you think a few will be going. I hope not as we are very thin on the ground.

Who do you think they might be.?

Our defence is certainly lacking numbers, and needs topping up. I feel we might be in the loanees dep artment very soon. flags

Hmmm.

Good first 11 but a poor squad imo.

Our problem is our rivals.

Wolves, Bolton & Blackburn have much better squads than us.

Cardiff, Watford & Nottingham Forest have better squads + have money to spend.

Leeds, Leicester & Blackpool could all finish above us.

And then the three newly promoted clubs , Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton & Huddersfield will all be up for it.

We havn't bought any decent players and have sold Mutch, a promising youngster and replaced him with a has-been. All our rivals will have improved their squads, ours has got worse. Where as we pick up freebies, loanees and Bosmans, our rivals buy half decent players.

And then PP gets a pat on the back from numerous Blues fans.

We simply got NO ambition, if we did Chris Hughton and Jordan Mutch would still be here. Until PP has gone from BCFC, we got no chance.

Mid-table is my prediction or slightly lower.

not fair

Your missing the point, we've simply got no money.

Also, get over Mutch, he's publicly said he WANTED to go.

No he never.

Cardiff made an offer and PP took the dollars as usual.

For once Kev is right, Mutch was told we had accepted a offer from Cardiff (which to be honest was a good one) and that they had given Cardiff permission to talk to him. If i was Mutch and was told this i would of gone as well no good staying if not wanted he didnt ask to go or want to go but was left feeling he needed to

Suggest you go read his quotes.

here's a clue...

"I wanted to work with...."




Also its worth noting, particularly if I'm wrong...one player does not make a team.

And, he wasn't that good anyway! Just like Redmond, good, but not that good.

Burke on the right wing - Redmond on the left wing - King & Zigic up top = Goals.

But will Lee Clarke be brave enough to go with that?

Probaly not.

Don't disagree with that.

Although it does speak volumes about blues fans when a shit player can be classed as a legend because of one or two goals.

------------------------- Butland --------------------------------------
-------------------------- Doyle ---------------------------------------

Carr ------------ Davies ------------ Caldwell ------------- Murphy
Spector -------- Ibanez ------------- ??????? ------------ ???????

Burke ----------- Fahey --------- Ambrose ---------- ????????
Redmond ------- Gomis ----------- Mullins --------------- Elliott

-------------------- King ---------- Zigic ---------------------------
------------- Lovenkrands ------- Rooney ---------------------------


Plus 1 or 2 loans and assuming we keep players, probably going to see one of Redmond/Davies/Butland go.

If GB get to the final or 3rd place at the Olympics its odds on that Doyle will start because the season starts 7 days after
