Stockley?!
That’d be nice but I think he still has 2 years left on a 3 year deal.
I doubt we’d want to pay the type of transfer fee they’d be asking for to sell him.
Maybe a loaner (if we can work out something about his presumably not inconsiderable wages) and Charlton are willing to lend him to a rival in their division 😊

I doubt it but we can live in hope. I think he definitely has an affiliation with the club like Wheeler,I’m sure Charlton wouldn’t be too keen to let him go anyways.

Heard Kieran Maguire (the Price of Football guy) on Radio Devon this morning and he said that we'll get an extra £500k in revenue from the EFL from TV rights etc plus all the extra ticket revenue we'll receive from naturally bigger gates so there will be some money for signings.

Think we'll need a keeper as I can't see Dawson coming back - maybe someone like Nathan Bishop who's been at Mansfield this season.

A new striker, RWB and probably a CAM to ease the pressure on Jay!

Stockley and Nombe would be a fantastic pairing. But one of Jay and Brown would need to be left out/redeployed. Who'd be a manager?

Stockley is not coming back. However much we would all love for him to do so


(Hopes to be massively proven wrong)

Of our loanees...
Dawson - as said already, would love to keep, but it's very unlikely given his wages.
Podge - not good enough for L1.
Phillips - will return to Huddersfield.
Zanzala - If his wages are low, I'd give him a contract for next season (we're never going to have 3-4 high earning strikers).

I'd release (assuming their contracts are up):
Atangana
Ray
Daniel
Grounds
Seymour

That leaves:

GK
S Brown
Lee

CENTRE BACK
Stubbs
Diabate
Hartridge
Sweeney
Pond

FULL BACKS
Key
Caprice
Sparkes

MIDFIELD
Collins
Rowe
Kite
Dieng
Taylor

FORWARDS
Coley
Jay
J Brown

STRIKERS
Nombe
Cox
Zanzala (if available and cheap)

There are some other youth/development players around the fringes but I don't know enough about them to comment.

Looking at the list above however, I think you could make an argument for one extra player in all 6 "departments". So specifically, I'd want a GK, a left sided centre back, a first choice left back, a defensive midfilder, a forward who can play wide, and another back up to Nombe.

I think Ray has one year left, plus a decision will need to be made about Jordan Dyer I assume and as you say a few other younger players on the fringes.
Interesting to see what happens over the next few months, hopefully it’ll be quality additions to enhance the squad where it’s necessary and not too many, or ideally no departures which are unfavourable to us.
