    Prediction time. What do we think? Whoever gets closest wins a prize*

    I reckon....

    Davies
    McCarthy
    Lindsay
    Jackson
    Fryers
    Isgrove
    Potts
    McGeehan
    New Left Midfield
    Moore
    New Striker

    Think it will be 4-4-2, and I think we'll sell Bradshaw. The left midfield will be a loanee, and I hope he signs a left back because I'm not convinced with either of them - although Fryers maybe OK in League One.

    *prize will not be honoured

    Not convinced about Potts & McGeehan in a 4-4-2
    Not sure we'll play 4-4-2 TBH.

    Not sure if Davies will be first choice.

    Think Pinnock may be preferred over one of the other two for passing.

    Expect Hedges to be on other wing.

    At the moment I haven't got a bloody clue in all honesty!

    Would not rule out young Williams for the left back spot , he impressed me when I saw him in the u23"s last season & has featured in the two friendlies so far

    Adebejayo might get a look in for a starting position if Bradshaw goes. As will Thiam.

    I think someone mentioned Stendel is a big fan of the 4-5-1, if that's the case then I can see Moore being lone striker and Moncur playing No10 if hes still here.

    I think if we play that formation, you’ve nailed it there. Although I’m thinking possibly Moncur in for Mowatt.

    I've no clue. Hopefully he'll pick a team based on form and merit shown in upcoming pre-season friendlies as opposed to last year's tried and tested.

    Reckon he’ll be brilliant in League 1. Young lad took some time adjusting to another country and learning the language. Reckon we’ll see a much improved player this year. Just my opinion based on nothing by optimism and hope.

    I admire your optimism. Didnt even look interested in some games and looked unfit all season. Whether your from Staincross or Timbuktu, being arsed and physically fit is the minimum starting point. He aint a scapegoat at all, hes poor, and we paid nearly a million for him. Frightening

    Didn’t say he was a scapegoat. Just I think he’ll do well next year. Agree regards fitness. Not sure what the craic was last year. Half the squad looked out of sorts, and you have to wonder what coaching they were getting. I’ll wait a few months and see if things have improved.

    Whether or not Bradshaw goes, I would be bringing in Mo Eisa from Cheltenham Town as striker

    He looks a talent, but they’re holding out for £1.5m. Which seems a lot! But again reinforces the kind of fee we should hold out for a player who’s scored goals at championship level and is a Welsh international already.

    Plenty of our team didn't look fit all season. We paid 500k for Alex mowatt and I hold more hope for thiam to shine in league one than I do mowatt.

    I agree on the fitness levels of last year. Interesting that Adam Davies mentioned in his recent interview that the intensity in training had gone up 1,000% from last season: confirming what we all thought about fitness levels last season

    Again its all a matter of opinions. From what I saw of him last season its going to take some coach to get him to look like a footballer. But i will be very happy to be proved wrong.
