23 Man Squad For Feyenoord Confirmed
Sunday, 28th Jul 2019 08:00
Ralph Hasenhuttl will take a 23 man squad to Holland to take on Feyenoord but there are still a couple of notable exceptions.
Whilst the squad will be missing both Charlie Austin and Mario Lemina who have been excluded by Ralph Hasenhuttl it will also be without Guido Carillo, Mou Elyounoussi and for various reasons as well as new signing Moussa Djenepo who presuambly only having reported for training after International duty is not being risked.
There is no place for Jack Stephens who now seems to be 5th choice in central defence behind Yoshida, Bednarek, Vestergaard and Hoedt all of whom do travel.
However it does include some of the players who the club are willing to listen to offers for, Cedric & Sofiane Boufal being the two most prominent.
It is though the best benchmark yet as a clue to Ralph Hasenhuttl's thinking for the coming season.
The squad for the trip to Netherlands, which includes a small number of players who have also made their way back from Macau, is as follows...

Although not an avid collector, I recently catalogued my collection of football memorabilia and I have 175 items, mostly programmes, some fanzines, and a few ticket stubs which aren’t accompanied by anything else. I have no idea how many more may have been misplaced during house moves, clear-outs etc., but the collection spans nearly 30 years (the earliest is the programme from our 1990 Boxing Day game against Barnet at Layer Rd), and is almost universally Colchester United related (though not quite all of it). I have decided to try and put this to some use, by choosing one at random prior to each match and writing a short article about the match, maybe the programme, and even any personal recollections I have of the game (notwithstanding enforced enfeeblement due to excessive libation). I will try and do this ahead of each game this season, but my apologies in advance if I don’t quite achieve that.
