We have 4 solid centre halfs so think thats enough, a 2nd GK and another LB are required imo and maybe 1 more striker and i think that will be about it.

I think Evo may see Taft as capable of covering at left back.
Who covers White if he gets injured? On the face of it you'd think Bennett, but for me he's our best centre half.

It could very well be that Evo is assembling a squad capable of playing this new fancy 3 at the back with wing backs, which seems to be all the rage at the minute.
Would not be surprised if we end up with 5 strikers too, he loves to sign plenty of those.

Thought so. Didn't think he was up to standard. It didn't help that his only appearance was straight in the deep end away at Sheff Weds though.

Above all we need goals and a recognised striker.
So who is it to be?

Pope has returned to Port Vale.
McNulty to Coventry.

How about the big lad from Barnet, will SE have a go for him?

I'd love us to get Paul Taylor. Although we'd be christened "Posh reserves" if we havn't been already.

May not see another defender Bennett can cover right back, Taft cover left back and Digby at centre back but don't think we will be waiting long to find out.

We definitely will. Evans said himself the defence isn't done yet. Talked about having a squad for different formations. So maybe wants the extra CB to allow us go play 3 at the back?

Having watched Taft i can't see him being good enough cover for LB. I think Bennett has shown he's a CB or RB cover. I'm expecting a young ish utility defender, ideally left footed...

We're short a couple of centre midfielders, a striker and a keeper as well.

The squad it is really taking shape, especially so early into the close season. We can afford to take our time over the last few if we need too.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Howkins back on loan for another season.

I know he said 22 plus a few from the youth team but with no emergency loans doesn't that seem a bit thin?

2 injuries and 2 suspensions and your close to the bone. I would expect 5 more permanent and maybe 2 on loan nearer the end of the window when he has assessed what he has.
