Blimey, that's an enormous squad.
I can't see any of the keepers being released unless BPF is told he won't be No1 and asks for a move but from the rest we should offload:
Anita
De Bock
Shaughnessy
Denton
O'Kane
Rey
Sacko (still can't believe we gave him a 4 year deal)
Ideguchi
Cibicki
Ekuban
Wilks
Balboa
Sarkic

A squad full of poor/average & young inexperienced kids in the main

Outside our first eleven there isn't a lot of decent proven championship players & even the first team requires tweaking

Updated to include Hugo Diaz's release, which is a surprise. I thought he was a very good footballer. Looks like the rumours about Ben White from Brighton could be on the mark.

Blimey that's a surprise, looked decent on the few occasions I've seen him although so many young players don't make the top grade

Does seem surprising although I am guessing a combination of Bielsa and Orta must have decided he wasn't anywhere near first team standard/ready.

So hard to judge players in the U23 matches as the opposition is usually quite poor and the matches seem little more than training matches at times and lacking real intensity.

That's why I don't allow myself to become too excited about the bulk of our young lads as the championship is a massive step-up from the U23's level

Not that massive for our lads, anyone who stepped up last season looked comfortable and able to do a job

We're not getting our money back for Bamford so I'd keep him plus he never really got fully fit and in form. Way too early to ditch him

1.2m is decent business for Leeds for Wilks. Cant understand why they dont just sell Coyle , take the money and get him off the books. Its obvious he's not got a future at Leeds.
