    Adams mentioned that he had used 16 players and they are the only ones good enough. Can anyone name the 8 that he wants rid of that haven’t played ????

    We have a squad of 25 so it's 9 he really doesn't rate. I think it's safe to say Sikora, Scales and Staunton are 3 of them given he wants them to go out on loan (no takers so far suggests he is right in his conclusion that they are not good enough - yet). There is also a very strong chance Robinson and Lavery are 2 of the others. As for the other 4, my guess would be Hornby, Foulds, Kelleher and Crankshaw.

    Under the assumption he wanted 24 /25 they said this is what have so add additional to make it that number. Surely though pre season he would of seen the quality in young ones them and could if replaced then. Not sure why wait nine games in?

    It’s a 24 man squad as far as I’m aware.
    You can’t count Wood, Sukiennicki or Rose.
    The squad is:
    Callum Cooke
    Charles Vernam
    Elliot Watt
    Gareth Evans
    Levi Sutton
    Niall Canavan
    Paudie O’Connor
    Richard O’Donnell
    Jorge Sikora
    Matty Foulds
    Lee Angol
    Caolan Lavery
    Theo Robinson
    Yann Songo’o
    Fiacre Kelleher
    Alex Gilliead
    Sam Hornby
    Oscar Threlkeld
    Abo Eisa
    Kian Scales
    Ollie Crankshaw
    Andy Cook
    Reece Staunton
    Finn Cousin-Dawson.

    Id guess that you’re right on the eight players being:
    Scales
    Sikora
    Staunton
    Lavery
    Robinson
    Crankshaw
    Foulds
    And either Hornby or Kelleher.

    I didn't count Wood, Sukiennicki or Rose.

    I did count Liam Ridhalgh though.

    So like I said, a 25 man squad.

    Loan out the kids and
    I can't see it being Hornby so probably Kelleher

    He does look pretty poor to be honest

    So if we are looking at 8

    Lavery, Scales, Sikora, Staunton, Robinson, Kelleher, Foulds, then possibly Crankshaw or Hornby

    Adams has said the budget is spent and he is unable to even bring in any free agents, so we are definitely stuck with the current lot. Adams must wait for the injured players to return to provide any competition

    Explains why they are in no rush to unveil the new recruitment plan. What's the point when there is no money to implement it?

    Well, he's going to have to motivate and encourage a group of players to play that he's said aren't good enough.....

    No wonder there's a lack of energy and enthusiasm in the team.

    January is a long way away.

    Surely there must be a contingency plan? No extra money available for free transfers, when the team is getting beat each week, the injury list is growing, the manager is almost walking, the fans are turning and the ship is sinking. Rupp you utter bellend!
