Stan, game of opinions... individually I think both McAuley and Fryatt had good seasons, I just don't think collectively they are that solid and I think the step up will leave that more exposed.  If we do go with the same starters then I think we will need a hell of a midfield to protect them.
All defences need good cover from Midfield. I felt that was lacking at times last season.

Stan, just saying his last term at this level ended in relegation.  Think the lad will more than hold his own at this level.
So do I, I think McCauley is a very good player.

Fryatt and McCauley more than capable at this level, however we do need cover with Joe Robinson leaving. I feel a CB with a great turn of pace would be a good signing something both players struggle with at times.

Agree about the back 4, its up to the midfield to give them protection when needed, and move the ball quickly when in possession .We need a very strong midfield. I don't think Clunan is that type of player, where Jarvis is older but stronger. Richards is going to be a very good player. improved under IC a lot last season.

Good work there.  If Barrows signs up thatís a squad of 17. Will that be it or maybe one more to come ?

I think the number thatís been banded round is 5, but with Natty Stewart returning that would leave us very heavy.

Depend on if IC considers Stewart and Carey ready for step 2.  Big step up from step 5.  Not sure how many starts Stewart got at that level last season. Maybe some in that possible 17 will be loaned out.

Looks like Ross Barrows is the only one left to make up his mind.

Still need a bit of steel. It's likely that one of the central defenders and one of the forwards will miss some games due to suspensions or injury. Say Gash and McAuley are out for a handful of games at the same time. Would like to see a utility guy who can mix it who could play central defender/defensive midfield and also at a push treble as target man

 :bus: 3 new boys announced to join our bus rides around Northern England, squad beginning to take shape, still feel a couple of tough tacklers  still needed and maybe another centre back.  :oldman"

Would like to see a central defender with a natural left foot and a yard of pace. Where is Des Walker these days ? :laughcry:
