PL’s squad plan 15:13 - Feb 11 with 907 viewsbontcho

Obviously we’ve still got 15 games where some players can play themselves into or out of next year’s squad. I suspect we’ll also see PL give us some clues, particularly when relegation is confirmed. Here’s the Bulgarian current take....

BART - I suspect he will have to be sold. His wages are a problem and he deserves Championship football.
WRIGHT - Surely has to be second choice next year. Well thought of.
GERKEN - Probably needs to convince PL over his distribution. Out of contract and definitely at risk. Would need to be replaced.

SPENCE - Pretty sure he’s going.
DONACIEN - Pretty clear PL doesn’t fancy him. Out but might need to pay him off.
BREE - one where he’s effectively on trial. Better the devil you know?
EMMANUEL- Similar situation but with PL keen to minimise changes to the squad may be more likely to stay than not.
COTTER - could be given a chance but does seem down the pecking order, loan?

KNUDSEN - clearly leaving. Wages saved.
EDGAR - one where he’s effectively on trial. Better the devil you know?
KENLOCK - Similar situation but with PL keen to minimise changes to the squad may be more likely to stay than not.

NSIALA - contracted and well suited to L1. Will stay.
WOOLFENDEN - really hopeful he’ll be next on the list of youngsters to get a new deal. Definitely a 3rd/4th centre back for next year.
PENNINGTON - going back, probably shouldn’t play much for the rest of the season but fear financially that could cost us if he’s not playing.
CHAMBERS - feel his leadership could be huge. Hopefully he’d be up for it.
COLLINS - the 64 million dollar question but he might well want to look around so PL might have to get someone in. However his very moral dealings with Villa suggest money isn’t his motivation so may be he’d commit early?

CHALOBAH - heading back
ADEYEMI - clearly leaving
HUWS - we are lumbered with him, obviously good player but need to sort him out physically somehow.
BISHOP - obviously staying, thankfully
DOWNES - doubt we’ll get a big enough offer to tempt us.
SKUSE - not been on form since injury but vital cog for us.
NYDAM - a player Hurst really mucked up. Hope to see a few times before May as could be a good option at this level.
DOZZELL - I think PL will sell him. I’m not sure he’s suited to L1 and (say) 3-4 million with a sell on would probably suit all parties.
NOLAN - If Dozzell stays I think Nolan will go, otherwise he’ll stay.
MCGAVIN - The year for him to push on?

WARD - cruel but PL will want his team together, I guess he might train with us to get fit and earn a contract that way but probably released come June.
DAWKINS - presumably going to be released.
ROWE - That’s 3 managers who didn’t see enough. Think he’ll be gone.
SEARS - Despite today’s horrible news will clearly be part of the squad. Hopefully he can be like a new January signing.
JUDGE - Beginning to show what he can do, especially centrally. Keep if we can (has an option but I’ve no idea if strings are attached).
LANKESTER - Hopefully can really break through, will clearly stay.
ROBERTS - I wonder if versatility will keep him here, particular instead of Sears.
EDWARDS - He to me is a bit of an unknown. Probably could offload but could offer us something different, even if off the bench. Not aware of any kids he’d be blocking a path of.

QUANER - Too pricey, will head back.
HARRISON - definitely worth keeping
JACKSON - I think he’ll stay, looks good in a 2 up front.
KEANE - if we can pick up on a free I think he’ll come.
MORRIS - Hopefully back for pres season. Decent 4th choice option.

It's Elder not Edgar. I hope Woolfenden is considered higher for next season but obviously if Collins stays that would be a great learning curve for him even if he had to stay on the bench until called upon.

OUT:

Elder
Collins

Think that would be my personal list of outgoings: Maybe try and offload one of Jackson or Roberts. And I think Donacien will be told he can leave.

Damn fat fingers!

I agree on Woolfenden, almost wondered if we might see him at right back. Collins might block him for a year but if JC is fit and willing we really could do with him.

I would keep Jackson, he's raw, but has pace to burn. There is potential in there.

I would keep Keane if the wages are sensible.

Cant disagree with the others.

Good summing up.

My main concern is around;

Bishop
Downes
Lankester
Judge

They are four players that I would hate to see leave the club.... but could also see their heads being turned.

They may have their heads turned or Evans might decide to cash in if offers come in for them.

Relegation is going to cost Evans and he will be looking to minimise the amount he has to put in.

Can’t see Lankester, Downes or Bishop leaving.

Judge is a tricky one, he could well stay, but isn’t there a clause that says we can’t trigger the extension if we are in L1?

Jackson is in his mid twenties. There comes a point where you have to stop forgiving a player for being "raw" and having only potential rather than product.

I agree with you, and feel Josh E is heading the same way but not sure Jackson has ever had a chance here. When he was playing he either didn't see the ball or when it came his way he was the only blue shirt in 20 yards.

I think in a side that's competitive in games, maybe even making some chances heaven forbid he could well come good or at least get the chance to do so.

No idea when I began here, was a very long time ago. Previously known as Spirit_of_81. Love cheese, hate the colour of it, this is why it requires some blue in it.

Agree and he doesn’t possess the power Lambert likes in a front man. Wouldn’t be surprised if he hs been touted around clubs already.
