I am sure that Bears will know the rules about which young players
do not count as part of 25 man squad so can be in squad anyway.
I would think that within my hopefully correct squad that there are at least 6 home grown youngsters which if is correct leaves us
one player over the 25 limit before we buy anybody else.

I really don't think the squad will change much . We seem to pinning our hopes of the much talked about team spirit , which may see us through this season , but if we are going to survive long term in this league then wholesale changes will be needed

You also missed out Toffolo DG -

Rules I am sure are that we are allowed to register 25 players and don't have to register players who are 21 and under. I am sure there have to be at least 8 home grown players in that 25 (this means players who have trained at an English/Welsh club for 3 years up until the age of 21). So far from that list we have:

HG = Home Grown
R = Must be registered

3 KEEPERS
Ruddy - HG / R
Rudd - HG / R
Matthews - HG

9 DEFENDERS

Toffolo - HG
Whittaker - R
Martin - HG / R
Turner - HG / R
Miguel - HG / R
Olson - R
R Bennett - HG / R
Bassong - R
Gafaiti - HG

JUST 15 MIDFIELDERS
Johnson - HG / R
Howson - HG / R
Andreu - R
Hoolahan - R
E Bennett - HG / R
Josh Murphy - HG
Redmond - HG
Jacob Murphy - HG
Tettey - R
O Neil - HG / R
McGrandles -
Dorrans - R
Thompson - HG
Ofoe - R
Mulumbu - R

6 STRIKERS
Grabban - HG /R
Lafferty - R
Jerome - HG / R
Hooper - HG / R
Loza - HG
RVW - R

So 24 players at the moment will need to be registered. I would think AN will want to bring that down so he can bring in players.

Anyone going to read into the fact that Lafferty and RvW are not joining the other players for training today? Apparently it is due to the contract of their loans which actually finish tomorrow?? hmmmm

The players will head off to St George's Park, the FA's national football centre in Burton, for five days from Wednesday to step up their workload.

Players like Russell Martin, Steven Whittaker, Alex Tettey, Nathan Redmond, Jamar Loza, Wes Hoolahan and Martin Olsson will be given an extra weeks leave and will not feature in the first friendly game. This is because they played 2 international matches!! that is it plus some of these players didn't even get much game time?

Youssouf Mulumbu officially joins the Club on July 1 after his West Bromwich Albion contract expires, but will be able to play in the first friendly.

There is also the fact that the transfer window is open for a long time still and most transfers are done late on and really the big boys havent started yet, which apparantly triggers a lot more down the line. Still early days but strangley no news form CR on how the players are facing up after the St Georges bonding week. All of them should be back now especially the loanees but are they actually taking part in anything, especially Lafferty, Turner and RVW or sitting around watching?.

unless we are going to loan players from top 6 which I really hope we are not then the £ 30 million player transfers will not effect us.
Why wait 6 weeks until players are in pre season and go on tour before signing anyone.

Strikers still need a booster I reckon in the form of a guaranteed finisher

2 GKs now DG with Matthews out on loan.

we need to get rid of a couple if any new players going to come in as we currently have to register 25 players. If a new defender comes in I would expect Turner to be sold - If a new forward comes in that will be goodbye to Lafferty (who I thought was at Sheff Wed during the week to agree terms)? If we want an experienced GK then another player is going to have to be loaned or sold to make way for them.
