Ok, it is time for another one of these to see where we are up to. We are hoping to keep it updated as pre-season progresses……..
Explanations; Sparse squad, more about gaps to fill at this stage. E.g. I’ve not bothered putting Gregor Robertson anywhere else but left back as we have no other left backs. So we wouldn’t move him. If the season started tomorrow, one of the youth team would be on the bench with Doig, Bastock, Sunter and Venney.
The big choice/competition for a place in the starting XI at this point, again, is Scott Brown or Craig Clay. Little to choose between them. So I put them both in and went 4-5-1 for now. Until we get more players. Similarly, as we have no right back, the choice between Gowling or Toto (or Pearson?!) can be postponed for another day.
Young pro Josh Sunter is our current 5th defender and Chris Doig our 6th.
Likewise, fellow 1st year pro Josh Venney is our 5th midfielder.
This provokes a debate; where are the gaps and who would you sign?
