Old XI v New XI

So with the final pieces of the puzzle put together for the season with Forest in Billy Sharp and James Coppinger, we now have complete new XI albeit minus a goalkeeper, which we also wanted with Al-Rashidi.

So let’s just compare the new XI, with an old XI, just for fun, but also just to see what a complete squad we have signed.

The difficulty with this becomes who loses out in the new XI. For the simplicity and for a balanced team, I have set it to so we have Coppinger in midfield and Hutchinson misses out (despite playing a starring role on Saturday)

The Old XI of course has the obvious complication of not having many defenders. So Moussi drops to centre back and Cohen left back, because after all they can play these roles.

So anyway, obviously the new XI has no goalkeeper, but this isn't a match after all, but more an illustration of just how many we have added and where, or where our short comings could be, but more importantly just how much strength in depth we have now.
