Far too early for this stuff but think Ayling would be better suited to the right sided centre back role rather than a wing back role.

Pearce should be in that starting eleven?

Think you may have missed the point there, Eric. Not like you.

Think of it as an appendix to Trialists and Transfers ....

Them in
Benik Afobe - Wolves (Loan), (£10m)
Oghenekaro Etebo - Feirense (£6.35m)

Expected to leave but still there Senegal international Badou Ndiaye (14M)
Will Jack Butland start or off to Bindippers?
Hard to believe its the same keeper who let in 28 goals in 16 games for us in 2014 now rated £20m & England GK
(Tim Krul is out there.)
Huth, free agent, training with them

Tyler Roberts back in training? Ex baggie would be a good start?

some more interesting stuff regards the first team squad found under a rock today....(just seen news now are startng to recycle it)

Kinnear revealed that a handful of academy players, including Jamie Shackleton, Ryan Edmondson and Jack Clarke, were already training with Bielsa’s main crop and Yosuke Ideguchi – the Japan international who finished last season on loan at Cultural Leonesa, a spell which cost him his World Cup spot – has also made the step up in the past week.

i like this bit...
“He hasn’t talked about the theory of marginal gains but he’s looking at every area of the club and how we can get better. We’re a week in but there’s clearly a huge impact and a big difference.”

it's the bit about marginal gains that made me smile, as though he ought to be mentioning marginal gains, that being a billy bullshit is par for the course. the rest is the usual propoganda.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

Bit early innit?
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I thought Bielsa was looking fond of Baker & Klich? Also seems a little far-fetched to think that Harrison and Bamford would be chucked in so quickly. Bamford maybe.

Not sure this is even close. The middle "CB" will be Phillips, Klich in front right now, maybe Vieira or Forshaw over time. Suspect he'll go same as yesterday in front of that, possibly with Roberts in for Samu or Pablo.

Give it a month and Roberts for Roofe and that's probably the front 4 though would expect Baker to get a fair bit of game time at #10. Pablo is going to have to prove himself again (I think he will do exactly that) and Samu would be sold by me if there really is £10+ on the table from Spain, he's just not going to do the hard yards Bielsa wants.

Good point but I'm very uneasy about getting rid of our best player because he doesn't fit the style of a manager that may not be here in a couple of months.
I hope I'm wrong but I can't see Bielsa sticking around.

Fully agree and I'm mindful he didn't really turn it on last pre season but then stood out in the first cup game. He might do the same over the next few weeks. That said, Pablo is a better fit for #10, he's more effective and Baker seems to be here for that role too. Not sure Samu can play right across the 3 in a high pressing style. If he's only on the bench he'll be worthless by Jan.

Expect Blackmon to start - Chelski will be none too pleased if he is loaned out & not played.
May seem harsh on PBF
JB has not had much of a preseason but has not done anything to get dropped and looked sharp enough. Like others who were Championship startesrs last season, a lack of preseason action may not see them benched.
