Player retained list - Who would you KEEP!

Postby gazza1988 » Sat May 05, 2018 9:23 pm

It's the time of year that clubs announce their retained list for the season. So who would you keep out of the current playing staff?

Note: I have included all players listed in the squad thread at the top of the board, plus Jordan Graham who has featured on the bench.

Poll on Retained List

Postby Tippy Tappy Football » Sun May 06, 2018 11:00 am

Please can we have a poll on Stagsnet on the retained list as John and Carolyn always want to know what are the views of the fans.

Here's my retained list:

Keep
Conrad Logan
Bobby Olejnik
Hayden White
Mal Benning
Krystian Pearce
Rhys Bennett
Alex MacDonald (Play on the right wing)
CJ Hamilton
Danny Rose (Sell if big transfer fee offered in summer with a 25% sell on fee)
Kane Hemmings (but only on reasonable and affordable wages. He is said to be on big money at Oxford.)
Ricky Miller (Clearly a bit of a rogue but may be worth taking a punt on.)

Transfer List (I'm assuming these players are on 2 year contracts and most will be on decent wages)
Johnny Hunt
Paul Digby
Zander Diamond
David Mirfin
Jacob Mellis?
Paul Anderson
Will Atkinson
Calum Butcher (must be a decent player in there somewhere)
Lee Angol
Omari Sterling-James

If pushed to keep a midfield player then I would keep Jacob Mellis but a problem all season has been a lack of creativity and goals from midfield.

Release
Joel Byrom
Alfie Potter
Jimmy Spencer
George Taft
Jack Thomas

Targets
1 x right back
1 x left back
2 x centre half
3 x centre midfield
1 x right midfield
1 x left midfield
2 x striker (one needs to be a target man or plan B off the bench and it would also be nice to have someone with pace. However most fans would be happy with someone who scores goals regularly.)

Need subs who can come on for last 20 minutes and cause genuine problems for opponents and score the odd goal instead of just sitting back and trying to use game management to hang on for what we've got.

Find someone who can take good set pieces or practice hard on training ground. Aim to score at least 20 goals from set pieces. Need good delivery and players to attack the ball.

95 Goals (Luton scored 96 goals, Wycombe 76 and Accrington 74)
55 goals from strikers
16 from wide midfield players
10 from centre midfield
10 from centre halfs
5 from full backs

Pretty much agree. Only one I would keep off your list is digby. Utility player always handy. Had some good games under df and think he been a threat in opposition box on set plays

To be fair to Paul Digby, he has not been given a chance to play regularly in midfield. This seems to suggest that both Steve Evans and David Flitcroft did not think he was up to the required standard.

If I were JR I would not want to be paying big wages for players who do not play much in the first team.

I did suggest having a separate Flitcroft In/Out Poll. It's always interesting to see the general view of the fans.

It would appear Bennet, Pearce and CJ are 100% of the voters (75).

Benning JUST behind with 74 votes, Hayden White has 71 and Danny Rose rounds up the top 5 with 67 votes

(Like the IN/OUT poll this is purely to bump the thread)

Rather than bump it make it sticky for a few weeks?

Just change the thread to start with ***poll*** so you remember to let it slide at some point.

The same person may have voted for Butcher too :banghead:

I expect its either Chambta or one of his flock but could easily be Spencer himself :hysteria:

P.s Lets hope it wasn't Flitcroft secretly voting :lol:

I think it's crazy to ship out as many as people seem to be advocating. We've just missed out on the play-offs, politics and budgets apart we are not far off so why dismantle everything?
i would prefer not to.

If you read what DF said, there's too many cliques & players not pulling their weight so they need shipping out for the good of the team.

https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/fo ... -a-1538377

Stags manager Flitcroft promised to form a 'promotion winning squad' after suggesting some of his players were earning too much money and the squad lacked 'togetherness'. But I want hungry players, I want players who want to train every day to get better.

"I think some players are on too much money at this football club. When I look at Accrington, and Wycombe to an extent, I look at the togetherness of the squad. There was a disharmony when I walked in here. There was a divided culture and there wasn’t a togetherness.

"Did I expect to walk into that? No. Have I tried to galvanise that? Yes. We’ve not been able to see games out so I need players who can do that.
