Not really anything other than Tav. Used the term 'club signing' for Forss which always worries me. Gives him an out if it's not working.

Clearly wants players he picks. Says the team tomorrow will show how short we are. No mention of if Fry is fit or not.

I'm guessing either a half empty bench or filled with Kav, Hackney, Finch plus Forss, Roberts and Bola if Fry is fit.

There's only the BBC Tees segment up right now, he might answer other questions in the full conference.

“Will show how short we are”

Well that’s not filled me with huge confidence.

You only have to run through the first team on the official site to see we've only got 19 players with a squad number and that includes Forss, Tav and McNair and the three goalkeepers.

Considering Tav is gone, we have:


3x GKs
4x CBs
4x FBs
3x CMs + Boyd-Munce from U23
2x CFs + Coburn from U23

It's pretty clear that as a minimum we need 1x CB (pref 2), 2x CM and 2x CF (pref 3) Of course we have 2x CBs injured tomorrow. Giving us 11 senior outfield pros, 2 senior GKs, so Boyd-Munce, Coburn + 3 kids on the bench (Kav, Gibson, Hackney).

Steffen
Dijksteel Lenihan Bola
Jones Giles
Crooks Howson McGree
Watmore Coburn

Subs: Roberts / Smith / Boyd-Munce / Gibson / Hackney / Kavanagh / Forss


first XI is 'ok' but weak down the spine and pish weak on the bench (you win nothing with kids)

We're mental if we don't start Forss, he's here he's had a couple days to train, play the boy ffs.
Akpom will be on the bench too i'd think

I’m reading that as”I’m píssed off with our recruitment team”
He wasn't he spoke at length about how difficult it's been for every club. He actually said the team was fairly strong and was talking about lack of numbers with his statement, presumably meaning what we'll see on the bench.
Absolutely no indication in any of it that he has any issue with the club
