BN article about the possibility of players leaving (Decberto in the frame for many) had me thinking that it would only happen if we made signings. Are all squad positions occupied now or is there any wriggle room?

It doesn't really matter how many we sign because we can choose who to register

It's a registration limit rather than a signing limit

So when does the decision to register or not have to be made?

And if we register a player and then sign someone else, can we deregister them?

It happens once the transfer window has closed

We just submit a list of the 22 players we want to register (excluding goalkeepers and under 21s)

End of the transfer window is when the squad is set IIRC players under 22 and keepers dont count towards the squad limit

according to last years rule book (which I doubt has changed in respect of registration rules)

The max we can register is 22 players but goalkeepers and u21s don’t have to be registered so:

Baxter, Coleman, Zac Ashworth, ( G Johnston)  dont need to be registered 

1. santos

2. jones

3. forrester

4. Toal

5. Iredale

6. Williams

7. Cogley 

8. morley

9. Dempsey 

10. sheehan

11. Thomason

12. Nlundulu

13. Mendes Gomes

14. Charles

15. Victor

16. Jerome

17. Bodvarsson

(18. Sadlier)

(19. John)

 

so even if we keep Sadlier and John, we still have 3 more squad places we can fill. Even more if we sign under 21s players.

Cheers chaps. One more question...

When Ashworth turns 21 in two months' time, will he then have to be registered?

No,

I believe even 21 year olds don’t have to be registered it’s only once they turn 22 that they need to be.

if Ashworth was turning 22 after the transfer window closed then we would have to register him in January but it wouldn’t affect the squad registration until then. As long as they are 21 or younger before the registration window closes, then they are free to play without being registered

 

(I think)

Bod stays fit 15

Gomes 10 

Charles 15-20

vic 10

Dempsey, Morley, Sheehan, Ndulu, 4-8

that’s without defenders chipping in, we will score plenty. 

 

 

The big positives compared to last season are Gomez

It will be interesting to see who steps up to replace last season’s goals. We scored 15 by players who’ve left, mainly the 11 from Bradley, Lee and Dapo. We got 20 from none strikers still here (Dempsey, Morley, Santos, Toal, Jones, Williams) so there’s no reason they won’t at least match that. We benefitted from a lot of pens last season, no guarantee that’s repeated so Charles may need to get more than 10 from open play. And I’m JDBs biggest fan but he’d have to be starting 30+ games to get 15, and if he’s starting with Charles the likes of Vic and Dan won’t have enough games for double figures, I’m thinking 10 for JDB and 12 shared between the other 3 strikers. Gomez is the unknown, 10 from midfield would be massive.

In favour of this myself. Hopefully makes time wasting a futile tactic. Some of our opponents last season took the absolute piss.

I can see them adding 10 mins on at the end of the game which I support given how commonplace timewasting has become 

but teams will just feign injuries within the added time and hope it’s not added on as “added-added time”

on the same page it also says players will have to get treatment off the pitch now , unless they have a serious injury (how are they going to determine that I don’t know), or they’re a goalkeeper

Should benefit us this season. It’s a tactic that shit teams coming to the Toughsheet can no longer use.

Correct.

Going off our last couple of seasons, this can only be a positive both for us and indeed the game as a whole for entertainment purposes.

This has to be great news, what's wierd is they have suddenly decided that 10 minutes has been lost/wasted, so let's come up with a revolutionary idea to add on 10 minutes!  Whatever next?  Are they claiming this as a smart move or just admitting they've been getting it wrong for 100 years?

Regarding having to go off the pitch for treatment and wait at least 30 seconds to come back on, OK I get where they're coming from, but the likes of Bradley get kicked for being skilfull, a clogger takes him out and he has to not only go off for treatment, but the opposition get to play against 10 men for potentially at least a couple of minutes.  We'll be screaming at the ref waiting for our wronged player to come back on while we defend a corner.

I know Iles doesn't rate these lads at all (says as much every other week on his podcast!) but their 1-24 season previews are always worth a listen.

Spoiler... especially when they have us finishing 1st 👀

We’ve come in to 5’s (2nd favs) on Skybet over the last week or two - we were 8’s at the start of pre season.

Derby still favourites at 4’s and Blackpool and Oxford!! next favourites at 8’s and 9’s.

Barnsley were 2nd favourites but are now 11’s and not in the top 6 for the bookies.

Wigan are 50’s
