    ECFC Academy graduate current XI

    So how would a team composed of exclusively ECFC Academy graduates now look? - as they are today for a game in a couple of weeks, so players like Dan Seaborne no longer count etc. A few changes I reckon since last season:- Pym Key Storey JMT Friend Ampadu Grimes Jay Sercombe Randell Watkins...

    Tuesday -v- WBA U21 - team and build up..

    I think MT said this is a dead rubber as we have already qualified(?) though do we need a result to clinch top spot and a home tie in the next round?) Easy to pick an eleven of players who need the game time, who didn't start on Saturday, but include the required 4 with over 40 senior...

    Team for FGR Tuesday ( and other build up)

    MT wants to use ’different personnel’ on Tuesday. If he wants a completely different starting eleven from those who started on Saturday:- four players who didn’t start on Sat with over 40 first team career starts - Taylor , Fisher, Ajose and Parkes (MT is optimistic he will be fit) seven...

    Which of our emerging youngsters will do best this season (20/21)?

    Another prediction guessing game! we have six exciting youngsters on the verge of the first team. Randall, Hartridge, Dean Dyer Key and Kite. Not Sparkes, because I think of him as already a first teaser. But you can also choose from even less experienced like Diabate, Smerdon and even 17 year...

    Chance to change all eleven? Maxted Cundy Warren Parkes Richardson Tillson Law Woodman Seymour Fisher Ajose (Though I think this doesn’t quite meet the rules, so perhaps Lee Holmes to start if fit)

    when we lose the leading scorer during the season

    I can only think of three examples- Last season when Wheeler left, but we got in Stockley and Boateng and finished fourth. Ten years ago we lost Mackie in January and Exeweb went into meltdown on deadline day with no replacement signed, but we went on to get promoted. In 89-90 we lost Dazza...

    Who do you want in the next round?

    WBA or Aston Villa away. Nice easy trip for me. (Though I fear they may get shifted to the Northern section of the draw, as there are so many southern based Prem teams coming in to the second round)
