Saw on another thread that we appear to have 25 players to register, including Perntreou and Souare. If he's required to be registered despite the injury, then that would be 25. Same story for Wickham.

Also see Mutch on that list, so if he's actually leaving on loan, then that's 24 (or 23/22 depending on the long term injuries).

Hennessey
Speroni
Perntreou
Ward
Kelly
Souare
van Aanholt
Schlupp
Dann
Sakho
Delaney
Tomkins
Townsend
Zaha
Puncheon
Kai Kai
Sako
Lee
Cabaye
Milivojevic
McArthur
Mutch
Benteke
Wickham
Ladapo

Gives us bang on 25.

I think you can add more in after that as we did with Flamini IF there is space. But I don't think we can deliberately leave a space by not naming someone who is over 21 at the club.

"Clubs do not have to name a full squad of 25 if they do not have that many contracted players and in this case they can add free agents outside the transfer window. However if they have 25 eligible contracted players, they must be named."

Because we had 25 other players, by my count. Not sure what the rules are on players who are injured, whether we could get special medical dispensation for say Wickham if he isn't going to be fit until the next window, but otherwise he would have to be named (assuming we have less than 25 other players.

Think the squad lists go in at 4pm today? We have until then to sign any free agents we want if I'm remembering the rules correctly.

We should name Pape in the squad as hes a bloody good player. If we didn't have to name Wickham last time I can't see why we would now as he still has the same injury and isn't back until Jan. That means we should have a space.

With 25 registered players currently qualified as over 21 the only way we can bring in further free agent players is by selling players to one of 60 foreign leagues with transfer windows still open before their individual deadlines.
In order to stop clubs cheating the system you cannot now simply cancel a players contract outside of our window in order to free up a space whilst incoming players must have had their previous contracts cancelled before the end of our transfer window.
The most attractive leagues are Spain (Sept 1 at 23:59 local time) and Turkey (Sept 8 at 23:00). Australia and New Zealand (both Oct 16) could be attractive to British players whilst Qatar (Sep 30) could be most lucrative.
The last current window to close is Yemen on Nov 23rd and then there is always Niger which is openning in 75 days time until Jan 31 2018.

We need to call in all possible favours with foreign contacts and agents to create openings for the additional strikers we obviously still need. it is also probable that we would continue to pay a large portion of their wages to seal any deal.

Could Dougie even phone up his old mate Tony Popovic at Western Sydney Wanderers to organise a deal?


Edit: Forgot about implications of the squad nomination deadline at 4 pm on Sept 1st.

Player would need to be sold before 4pm deadline to leave a space available in the squad which can then be replaced at a later date by a free agent. Once named they can not be replaced even if sold later.

I am not sure that answers the question, at least not for me. You have to fill up empty spaces in the squad of 25 with contracted over 21s, but can you sign a non contract player before the squad of 25 is due to be submitted. For example, now, today?

I don't know the answer but I'll give a view anyway. I can't see any logical reason why we can't sign a non contracted player and then put them in the squad by 4PM today at the expense of someone being left out. This only becomes an issue anyway if we are seeking more than one non contracted player assuming Wickham isn't included in the squad.

Would think we can sign 10 unsigned players today without any issue. I think the tiny window we have until 4pm is being mixed up with the opportunity to only submit 24 and then pick up a non contract later.

Technically I guess if a club were to pay up a players contract this morning we could actually sign him this afternoon. If we then paid money to that club for agreeing to do that, I am not sure if that is within the rules or not. Outside the spirit but maybe within the rules. Not likely though is it? Likely expensive too.

Any strikers out there with very few months left on contracts?

Yeah i think the problem is to fix this now we have to sign a keeper and striker by 4pm today. We had Niasse there all day yesterday and didn't manage to sort that. Have to say going on the previous 2 months I'm not hopeful. Currently we have the most unbalanced squad imaginable, capable of playing 4-5-1 or 3-6-1 at a push. Some great players in there, but the 3 best ones are all injured.

We currently have 25 over 21 players. I believe squads have to be nominated by 4 pm today. So if any player can be sold to a foreign league with an open transfer window before then the space created can be filled at a later date by a free agent, as we did with Flamini. Once named in the squad they cannot be replaced even if sold at a later date.

The deadline for nominating squads needs to be moved until after the international break as clubs could lose players to long term injuries in games not under their control and then be unable to replace them, even with their own contracted players.

A fully fit Remy on a pay per play might not be a bad shout

If last season's shit was with another club the bbs would be demanding we take remy on pay as you play.

Of the lost he's the one that COULD be ok. But I don't think we'd be able to stomach it due last year

We didn't name Wickham or Souare in the squad after the January window.

We also had 25 other senior players contracted, so that tells us nothing.

20 games?
Any club would do well to get 20 minutes out of Remy...

By my calculation we only got 156 minutes out of him in the PL last time, never mind 20 games

So deadline has just passed for naming 25 4pm today is this correct? So no free transfers now.

I wonder how much of that was because he was injured or just because we left him out.

There's a player in there but hampered by injury and a severe lack of game time

Clinton Morrison? That's if Mickleover Sports suddenly terminate his contract for us.

DF could bung them a few quid in a brown paper envelope.

We can look at it all we like, there will not be any quality on it next time we look either.

Lets wait and see how long Benteke is out for. Anything less than 4 weeks back in action is not the end of the world.

We aren't signing a free agent. We just ****ed up our squad management so that we couldn't name a 25 after we released a keeper.

In the whole world of international football there isn't another striker kicking their heals?

If only we had a decent scouting network.

Do Tim Coe and Dougie know how to use google?

Mr Palace
25-09-2017, 07:01 PM
This says a lot about how desperate we are but maybe Carlton Cole would be useful? Even if he just ran around a lot and caused a bit of mayhem to occupy defenders he'd be useful. How low we have fallen though...

Dougie could get a game at this rate.

I guess any half decent free agent striker has found himself a club by now. Either that or they are so badly injured that no club will take a chance on them. I see Antonio Pedroza (him of the little feet possibly?) is without a club. My guess is we wanted RVP until he got injured playing for Holland.

Get four strikers off that list - start with one off them, then make a substitution every 22.5 minutes. Sorted.

Maybe they're waiting for Football Manager 2018 to be released so they can use the filter to find out of contract players?

Surely we have someone else at the football club capable of scoring goals? What are the rules about signing under 21's outside of the poxy transfer window if not?

No. A "free agent" is a player who was without a club when the transfer window closed. Any player leaving their club after the window closed cannot play for another club until January. We have an example of this ourselves - we released Kleton Perntreau the day AFTER the window closed specifically to free up a squad place for a "free agent". But Perntreau himself stated in the Advertuser that the big downside of leaving was that he would be unable to find another club until January.

If, of course, players could just get their contracts cancelled and then join another club outside the transfer window, then they'd all be doing it and there wouldn't really be a transfer window, would there?

Dont different countries' transfer windows shut at different times though? The Yemeni one, for example.
