Comparing Premiership squads
« on: October 17, 2020, 02:55:49 PM »

Which one is better?

2018/19

GKS - Fabri, Rico, Betts

DF - Bryan, Chambers, Christie, TFM, MLM, Djalo, Mawson, Odoi, Ream, S Sessegnon

MF - Anguissa, Cairney, Cisse, Johansen, Kebano, Markovic, Mcdonald, Nordveit, Seri

FWD - Ayite, Babel, Mitro, Schurrle, Sess, Vietto


2020/21

GK - Areola, Fabri, Rodak

DF - Tosin, Aina, Andersen, Bryan, Hector, Kongolo, MLM, Odoi, Ream, Robinson, Tete

MF - Anguissa, Cairney, Johansen, Kebano, Lemina, RLC, Mcdonald, Onomah, Reed, Seri

FWD - Cavaleiro, Kamara, Lookman, Mitro, Reid


Would argue we're stronger in every department this season apart from up front. One day, we may look through our entire squad and feel more confident that we have the quality in every position. Writing out the two squads though, just make you realise how poor our defence was last time we were up. Our options of Ream, Mawson (out injured), Odoi and Djalo....

Agreed.   Stronger side save FWD.

Definitely the current squad, we need to get what we have offensively scoring goals, we need to create more chances for that to happen.

I think with RLC and Lookman more chances will come and converted.

I trust you’re kidding, right? Especially given the first squad also includes the January loanees/short-contract signings.

Come January I expect us to be even stronger. Just hope it’s not too late by then to still be challenging for safety 🙏
