Midfield: release easyjet. I’m not sure if cox, smith and risser will be good enough for league one. I think we need a championship class player, maybe two, to partner ferry in the middle – so maybe one or two of those three can be backup.
It's difficult to form an opinion on Cox, as have seen very little of him. A couple of people have put him on the 'out' list, but hasn't he been missing through injury?
I like Smith and think he has the potential to become a really good player. He's still quite young and I think some of the inconsistencies in his game will improve. Ferry looks more at ease with Smith alongside him.
Risser has been poor for a fair few games now, I'm not sure why he's played in front of Smith tbh. He's far too slow and I don't think the effort he puts in will be enough. League 1 will be a step too high for him imo.
The players that aren't wanted, but are still out of contract could be a slight problem. Most are foreign, which probably means they'll be more difficult to move on. It's not as if they're getting a run out anywhere to be spotted either. Will the board make the money available to pay a number of players off, I'm not sure?
