The squad for 2016/7 has been announced by the cub. There are a lot of familiar names there. Some of whom one might have expected to have moved on. For example, I'm surprised to still see Topsy Ojo. He is slowing almost visibly and by the end of the season was being caught with ease by players to who he would have shown a clean pair of heels in his youth.
On the other hand there are clearly other players who are welcome additions. James Marshall, is one.
