    Anyone know what our best 2nd 11 is? I'm not clued up on our Development Squad the last season.

    Is Matthews a possibility? Amazed he's only 27, seems ages ago he left. I did like him even though he kinda got hot and cold when he was good he was quite classy.

    I liked Matthews first time around. But even back then he never made the right back slot his own. He didn't dislodge Lustig consistently.

    Being consistent was his problem, with the only constant element being his ability to be injured.

    Matthews broke through to first team football very young and his biggest weapon being pace. With injury and age that pace has dropped a gear or two and so has his ability to provide the cover we require to whoever we bring in as first choice right back.

    I'm surprised more so we aren't been talked up for big Fraser Foster.

    Those positions filled, Eboue, Mulumbu and Morgan out on loan, Ntcham sold. Maybe another defender or two knocking Ralston and Bitton down and loaning out Hendry.

    I'd be happy with that. I'd take Ankersen and Jullien to play in the team, Harper as back-up and i'd even take Matthews back as a back-up full-back. Those 4 would complete the squad for me just now so it would look more like...

    Bain
    Ankersen Ajer Jullien Tierney
    Brown
    McGregor Christie
    Forrest Edouard Shved

    Gordon
    Matthews Simunovic Bitton Hayes
    Harper
    Turnbull Rogic
    Johnston Griffiths Sinclair

    Hazard, Hendry, Ralston, Miller, McInroy, Henderson, Arzani, Bayo
    That would do me although i'd probably go for another centre-half, a young prospect to go 4th/5th choice.

    That would be dismal. I'm not sure why you've bolded 'Shved' either; he signed in January.

    Some of these potential teams are scary.

    Bain
    New RB, Ajer, Jozo, New LB
    Brown, McGregor
    Forrest, Rogic, Shved
    Eddie

    Will spend no more than 5 or 6 mil combined for the new LB and RB.

    Leaving us with some utter dross as cover on the bench

    Really looking forward to this season. Will be great to see the development of Demeble, Turnbull and Edouard. Shved looks like an exciting player and with Griff returning we have more firepower. Defence needs strengthening in all four positions, I would put Tierney down as the only top quality player at the back. Ajer is improving well and looking good but he still has a bit to go to totally convince me he is the real deal and can handle European games against quality opposition. Getting at least one right back signed is obviously essential.
