Updated with those in/out in italics etc.

Changed the first XI to those that started Saturday...despite this clearly not being our best team! Will have a better idea by the end of August.

Jack Stevens on the bench against Barnsley. Sure he'll start U23 games this season, but maybe he'll be worthy of being called a fully fledged squad member in a few weeks?

Great shout! Interesting to see what happens with Shearer if that’s the case

He seems to be great around the squad for morale. He turns 38 in February, I'd hope he'll be spending time learning off of Wayne Brown for the next stage in his career, if it is coaching he fancies.

Yeah, I get that impression that Shearer is going to be 3rd choice, while he turns his ideas to coaching

Updated with todays activity....

Going on the first XI in 4-2-3-1. Think there will be some fluidity between some of the teams, but looks to be how it has roughly settled

Hi @Shosho on the excel can you put a key as to what all the little symbols mean please. I thought there was one for long term injured as well.

Every now and then I read Pekalskis name and remember he is still our “player”, not that I have or ever will see him play.

Is Tsun Dai a winger/no.10? I always got the impression he's more of a central midfielder.

Well next summer seems a heck of a long way off at the moment but we’re fast approaching a time when players who’s contracts are up at the end of this season will be looking ahead to what they do next. I’d say any player that the club wish to tie down to new deals needs to be sorted before January. Ignoring the obvious Nelson situation, I believe Henry is another who’s contract ends next summer? If so I would hope he’s another we look to get tied down in the next couple of months. Personally I think he’s a very important player for us.

Not sure who else is into their last year..?

I would imagine that no players are going to commit at the moment.
They will want to know which Division we are likely to be in, whether the manager is likely to be here, what the ambitions are for next season.
Get some decent results in the next few games and start moving up the table and it will be easier to try and the down players like Henry.

Henry signed a three year deal so has over 18 months left. If Robinson is still manager next summer I would expect him to go. Feel free to bookmark that prediction and see if he’s still here when the season starts next August in such circumstances.

Off the top of my head I believe that Shearer, Nelson, Mousinho, Raglan, Long, Hall and Obika are ooc next June. Mousinho might get another year offered if he carries on doing well as holding mid and I’m sure Hall will be offered something if he can get back from his injury, but the rest are as good as gone. Expect Nelson to go to Sunderland on a free while a certain somebody cackles into their scotch.
