Squad size

According to that other site which I never look at 😱 it looks like the 3rd and 4th tier will be able to have 22 players plus goalkeepers and under 21 year olds.

I thought it was set at 20 senior players. Senior players being over or under 21 year olds. Unless it’s changed.

Looks like it will change.

The limitations on the first-team playing set-up will remain in place, despite the controversial salary cap voted in last year being scrapped in February.

But there will be some leeway applied from the existing framework in place, which would have seen third and fourth tier sides limited to just 20 players next season – as the rules currently stand.


I think the main problem for us will be the limitations for us only being allowed to have salaries up to 60% of our revenue.We’ll still have a bigger budget than most in L1, but we’ll struggle to bring in championship or top end L1 players within that. Unless we’re smart enough to boost our revenue.

I've just had a look and no nothing much said, the morons must be moaning about something else, I do like to read about possible transfers even though most are like the site rubbish.

Tang: If PC makes the right signings and during pre season warm up games it looks very promising, then on home games we will see 20;000 to 25;000 + gates hopefully, with no Covid restrictions in place, and that will boost the clubs income to allow pretty good wages close to championship level, with the promise of a hefty bonus if we get promoted.
That's how I see things panning out for 21/22 season :D :D
