Are they just updating their website, or have they genuinely only got 8 players, on the books?

They've got some young players (about 5 I think) that have professional contracts and they're still in discussions with Angel Martinez and Ricardo Fuller but other than that, yep - that's it.

Maybe if they tap into the stag do market, they could find a few players. I assume that's how Charlie Adam got a professional contract with them.

This is how I operate on football manager for lower league clubs. Start every preseason with about 5 players and then work around wage budget. Always done me proud!

I did a save file like this once. Just signed freebies all the time and put them on good wages, or made transfer money from selling players. I gutted the squad ruthlessly. Then when I had done well I fucked off and moved up the food chain, doing the same thing elsewhere. I think I must've financially crippled 3 or 4 clubs that way. However, I came unstuck when I got to Everton and had sold all the homegrown talent without promoting any more. Had to name a small squad with youth players making up the HG status. No squad depth whatsoever.

Incredible really. You can't see them bringing in 14 or so players of the required standard to compete in the Championship.

Depends how much money they get in compensation for Tom Ince. They wanted 8m. That could buy about a dozen players.

How did they get into the position of only having eight players?


edit:Never mind, the bbc article was good.

If their coach is any good, we should offer to furnish them with half of the development squad for the season?

Oh my god. Their season August 9. What the fuck are they going to do? Just play with their academy? They have 3 weeks until their first game and cannot even field a full 11. I feel for their fans. I really do. This Oyston guy sounds like a real treat
