I have tried to be realistic with my selection below. I want to see the vast majority of the squad remain in place, whilst completely revamping the problem area, midfield. Nearly every player in that midfield is expendable. However, I have chosen to keep:
- Gomes - Best ball player we have, even if he is slow and inconsistent since his injury
- Iwobi - Still yet to have a long run in the team and is young with potential to grow
- Walcott - Inconsistent, but still produces assists and goals, and partners well with Coleman. The best winger of a bad bunch.
Of the ones that can go, I want Davies gone this summer more than any other player. He is not PL quality, and doesn't even offer goals/set piece quality that Siggy does. In saying that, Siggy also needs to go for offering little to nothing in open play. Delph is too rash, and Bernard just seems to slip all the time, lose possession and play poor passes. It could be an opportunity for Dowell next season, but I haven't seen enough from him to give any real opinion.
Holgate, Digne, Richarlison, Keane, Mina, Gordon, Branthwaite, Coleman, Gomes, Iwobi, DCL, Pickford, Kean, Kenny, Walcott
BIN/SELL AT RIGHT PRICE
Delph, Bernard, Dowell, Sigurdsson
BURN/PLZ GO NOW
Davies, Tosun, Besic, Bolasie, Sandro, Lossl, Stekelenberg, Virginia
Edit - Oh and Gbamin - goodness only knows what player will turn up!
