thought we might be looking at quite a few more still to come in, but looking at Cod Almighty I'm not so sure.
Capitals are first choice

G.K. McKEOWN, Battersby & Russell
Defenders PEARSON, LONGE-KING, SEARS, Waterfall, Idehen, Goundry,  (Starbuck)
Midfield CLIFTON, COKE, WRIGHT, FOX, Spokes, (Starbuck)
Forwards THE SHOP, McATEE, Jackson Jnr, Adlard (Scannell?)

Haven't included Hendrie, Khouri, Grist, Morais, Williams, Rose or Gibson as i don't expect any of them to be with us by the end of August

so I've got 10 first choices, 4 or 5 for the bench and 4 youngsters, with a squad total of 19/20

reserve keeper, winger, young centre forward & a left back would appear to be the gaps and then you've got a squad of about 24
anything i've missed?

Yep Khouri was offered a deal along with Adlard & Goundry.
They have accepted 1 year contracts but I don't think Khouri has signed yet..

How do you conclude we need another keeper?

Paul Hurst said we needed into double figures and we have 5 so far, so atleast 5 more to come but also I think some might wait until after the season has started as we can sign players pretty much all through the season so there's no immediate rush for some players who would be signed as "options" rather than first teamers

Personally I think there will be plenty more incoming, hopefully we see some outward movement too soon

coz i don't think Battersby is quite ready and Russell isn't good enough, plus i'm sure Hurst has made comments to the effect that he wants McKeown to be challenged

ps i had heard that Khouri is on his way to either a midlands Championship team or a London premiership club, although tbf that was a few weeks ago now

When looking to see if we have a team to compete for promotion we have a guideline from the past...

McKeown.            
                                            
Tait.
Nsiala.
Gowling.
Roberstson.

Arnold.
Clay.
Disley.
Nolan.

Bogle.
Amond.

Subs.
Pitman.
Hoban.
East.
Pearson.
Marshall.

That needs to be the standard this time around....
The question is:
Are we anyway near that yet?

Fair enough. Not sure I see the point in re-signing Battersby if he's gonna sign a second experienced keeper and it's always possible to get a keeper on loan short notice. Wonder if we'll have a reserve team.

On Khouri, I did say that unless we offered him a decent contract, better than our standard one year for a first year pro contract, that he'd be off (assuming that's what we have offered). Although obviously raw, Khouri showed enough in technical ability to suggest he's better than anyone our youth system has developed in recent years and I see real potential there. Would be a shame but you gotta think if he was gonna sign he'd have done it by now.

The end justified the means I suppose but we want a squad capable of automatic , not just one of making the play offs, making and winning the play offs is the minimum requirement of any squad this season I would say,  automatic as soon as possible should be the No.1 aim.
