One thing I can't believe is how long we've been playing Chenery on the left-side of defence, when I knew before he even joined CIFC that he was a right-back! He looked better at right-back Friday than he did on the left for most of last season. (Remember Yeading when he swapped sides when Crow came on? The defence looked more sured up)
If we signed our 'Trialist Defender' <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> which I reckon we should. Then there are 5 defenders there; (Wardy, Cowan, Chenery, Crow & 'Him') that would make up one hell of a defence. Not to mention IF we signed Whelan, Searle, Smith etc. We'll have Benno as cover too and Lewis Lilley and Protheroe & Dobbo can play in defence too if we get stretched...
The midfield certainly looks a bit over crowded though.
JK, Michael Lee, Midgley, Parmenter, Minton, Protheroe, Dobbo, Benno, Forbes, Dave Gregory, Duffy & Gooden. (Anyone I've left out?) That is certainly crowded, especially if we only play 4 in midfield this season... Oh yeah and Thurgood.
Plus our four Strikers - Gregors, Boylan, Berquez, Brayley & probably Midgley up front. We've definately got our Squad it's just finding the killer combo and keeping everyone happy!! But no doubt I have a feeling one or two of our Midfielders will leave before the start of the season.
Goalkeepers are sorted - Potter as No. 1, Ash on the bench and Glen Johnson in Reserve.
Bring on the season!!!!!!
