Flight problems blamed on lack of staff

I don’t get it - wasn’t the point of furlough to help companies not lay staff off so they wouldn’t be in this predicament?

Current Squad 22/23
at 15:57 30 Apr 2022

So here we go again. As players come and go I'll add players to the below in new posts so we can see the development of the squad. All loanees have been removed and I've tried to include players who have made a league appearance for the club.

In terms of out of contract players, I will keep them on the list unless it's been officially announced that they've been released.

Goalkeepers: V Hladky, T Holy, C Walton

Defenders: E Baggott, C Burgess, J Donaicen, G Edmundson, M Kenlock, M Penney, K Vincent-Young, L Woolfenden

Midfielders: S Aluko, W Burns, A Dobra, K Edwards, I El Mizouni, L Evans, R Harper, C Humphreys, S Morsy

Strikers: C Chaplin, K Jackson, B Morris, J Pigott, T Simpson

Squad for next season (five hundredth thread on this?)
at 19:24 23 Apr 2022

Walton
Donacien - Woolfenden - Edmundson
Burns - Morsy - +1 - +1
Chaplin
+1 - +1

+1
+1 - Burgess - Ndaba(?)
Vincent-Young - Evans - Bakinson - Penney
Celina
Jackson - +1

Hayes as third keeper; El Mizouni as a further reserve. I am intrigued about what McKenna has planned for Edwards. Baggott will probably get a loan spell; will we keep Ndaba in reserve due to the number of defenders the current formation requires?

Aluko, Bonne, Carroll, Hladky, Holy, Harper, Kenlock, Norwood, Pigott and Thompson all out. Aluko feels harsh but his age counts agains him whilst I'm gambling on Celina finding momentum after a full pre-season rather than being affected by Covid.

I almost feel the mental approach of the new signings is as important as their footballing ability though.

Burns and KVY could miss Saturday; how will we cover the RB/RWB position?
at 15:04 21 Apr 2022

Switch to a 4-2-3-1 with Donacien moving to right back, Chaplin and Celina to the wings and perhaps Pigott or Norwood coming in to play off Bonne? Or stick to the current formation and perhaps try Donacien at RWB with Baggott returning to central defence?

Do we have any RWBs who have looked good for the U23s?

McKenna is really setting up a them v us isn't he?
at 23:13 19 Apr 2022

Disparaging about Rotherham's style on Saturday, a dig at Wigan turning the game into "what they wanted" today - he's got a very clear way of wanting us to play and for us not to allow games to turn into scraps; not to allow the opposition to get to us.

It's a risk as some will argue we've missed a nasty, niggly streak for too long but I really hope it works out.

McKenna is incapable of turning a game into our favour when we start struggling. We just fade away.

Disgraceful half
at 14:13 16 Apr 2022

If this a test of how far we’ve come the answer is we haven’t come anywhere near far enough. What happened from the first half to the second? We’ve basically, to a man, disappeared.

- They've only had more than 50% in the first half of two matches; West Brom in 2017 and Norwich today. Not sure if the stat is all matches or just away - surely the latter?

Three points out of 12 from Morecambe, Cheltenham, Cambridge and Shrewsbury…
at 17:07 9 Apr 2022

under McKenna. That’s nowhere near good enough for a promotion side.

The season’s dead, he probably deserves credit for keeping it alive for so long, but after such an excellent performance against Plymouth we’ve looked limp for three halves out of four in the last two games.

Is it time for the youngsters? Possibly but we should probably field the strongest XI against Rotherham and Wigan as they’ve managed to put themselves in a position to have something to play for.

Not looking forward to Wigan one bit.

Maybe stretching it slightly, but if some players were starting to come down with it on Saturday perhaps that’s why we were off as a team against Cambridge. Hopefully none are too serious.
