Retained List

Postby Tippy Tappy Football » Mon May 13, 2019 4:13 pm

Here's my guess at DF's Retained List

Under Contract
Hayden White
Mal Benning
Krystian Pearce
Ryan Sweeney
Matt Preston
Lewis Gibbens
Neal Bishop
Alex MacDonald
Will Tomlinson
CJ Hamilton
Jordan Graham
Craig Davies

Transfer Listed
Danny Rose
Otis Khan

Released
Jacob Mellis
David Mirfin
Will Atkinson
Zayn Hakeem

In Negotiations/Offered New Contract:
Conrad Logan
Bobby Olejnik

Return To Parent Club
Jordan Smith
Jorge Grant
Tyler Walker
Nicky Ajose
Gethin Jones

U21s
Alistair Smith
Henri Wilder
Harry Bircumshaw
Keaton Ward
Nyle Blake
Jimmy Knowles

Is Jacob Mellis out of contract? If so then I am going for him for the Rhys Bennett Award for the shock release.

What would you do and what do you think DF will do?

I would keep Khan too. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see Rose or Mellis leave the club. I liked the look of Ajose and wouldn't be surprised to see him back at the mill.
Turner would be worth keeping. Looked immense the last two games .

Be ridiculous to give up on Khan, he was brilliant when playing consistently at the start of the season, easy to forget.

Think we have too many midfielders all wanting to do the same kinda job in Bish, Mini bish Atkinson and Macca

We only need two.

DF has clearly given up on Otis. He clearly does not fancy him at the moment.

he's been injured for ages and I'm sure he only made a return to the bench for the Newport play off games.

Craig Davies and Otis Kahn can be massive players for us next season.

Davies has pedigree at this level and higher, with a pre season and injury free he could be the target man we're missing. I don't expect him to go anywhere.

When we brought in Otis he probably could have gone to league 1 clubs and been playing at a higher level. He hasn't had a look in after Grant came in, he deserves a chance IMO. If DF stays I'm not sure what will happen as he clearly doesn't favour him.

I think it's time to let Danny Rose and Alex McDonald go if we get any offers come in, both have done well but been part of teams that have fell short. I'd also let Jacob Mellis leave and rebuild the midfield, we've not got enough options in there at the minute who give us something different.

I expect us to sell CJ Hamilton, hopefully we use the money to bring in a proven scorer such as Hylton. There will be offers for some others too in defence, so I think we try and snap Turner up quickly if he's willing to stay at this level.

This....

Defence is not a problem so I would do my upmost to keep the back three as is. Both White and Benning need like for like competition for the positions though if we are going to keep the 3 at the back. Midfield needs a complete overhaul as it’s still not produced enough goals or assists.
Khan would get first crack in the attacking midfield role but would also look for competition for this place too.

Now for the strikers....I assumed we have no Walker for next season. I’d slap DDR on the transfer list and hoping Davies is his hundred percent fit would look to have him as my main striker alongside a striker who has an eye for goal plus pace. Back up striker would need another football league striker who can score goals plus would have Graham and Knowles and my last two back up strikers.

Macca can go for me
Mellis for a playmaker doesn’t score or assist many so let him go
Danny rose doesn’t score enough and spends more time on the deck

I personally would retain Atkinson ... this boys a grafter & never lets us down .
When called upon , like last nights game , he delivers & improved our midfield when he came on for Mellis ....

Mellis has double figure assists this season I’m pretty sure.

Atkinson won’t want to stay IMO.

Atkinson has barely played this year and he isn't getting any younger. He will definitely want to move to a team where he'll be getting game time every week

Interested to hear your justification on keeping Atkinson and binning Mellis?

Mellis has the most assists... When he had Bishop and Elsnik behind him he was great, one of the best midfielders in the league.... He just needs to score more and hes admitted that.


My retain list....

Olejnik
Logan

White
Benning
Pearce
Sweeney
Preston
Turner (offer)

Mellis
Bishop
Tomlinson
Khan
Atkinson (Feel he will leave but id keep him and play him more... actually plays football and never lets us down.)

Rose (unsettled good preseason he might be back to his old self)
Davies (If fit would be very useful, capable of scoring a rocket too)

Sell CJ, He'll be back on loan in this league eventually like Nathan Thomas.

Loans:
Tyler Walker, simply been brilliant and carried us as our only striker. Show what you can do at forest or league one.
Grant, good player that still needs to learn a lot... Probably be on loan in this league again.
Jordan Smith, not bothered Logan and bobby both better.
Gethin Jones, Awful. Released by Fleetwood no doubt and signed by someone like morecambe.

Ajose... Id sign, theres a good player there if he was settled with a great preseason. He can finish and would be a different type of striker to have.
Elsnik, Make an offer to Derby. Hes brilliant for league two and was doing well in this side.


Id also sign a Neal Bish type, we need two of him he seemed to run out of stream a little.
Another quality wingback.
Two strikers, Id go get Danny Hylton.
Two proper wingers and play 442 :lol:

That would be my ideal Fifa manager mode.
