Surprising to see Macey (thought he was leaving), and then Thompson, Burton & Olayinka (about whom I know very little - Matty ?)

Torreira, Geundouzi & Iwobi missing (international duties)

Everyone else as expected (except Koscielny of course....)

I'm surprised Macey is going. I work with a Plymouth Argyle fan and he spent all last season telling me how bad Macey was. All I can think is he qualifies as home grown and will be on low wages, so could be a cheap third choice.

Dominic Thompson is a left back who spent some of last season playing midfield as well. Trained with the first team quite a bit last season when we were short.

Robbie Burton is a technically sound midfielder and a good passer.

James Olayinka is a versatile player but primarily a midfielder.

Have to be honest, none of those three are players I expect to make it here and I don't even think they'll play much. The fact they're going instead of Xavier Amaechi is concerning and basically confirms he isn't going to extend his contract.

Pretty upsetting that we've lost genuine talents who could've made it here, such as Joao Virginia, Vontae Daley-Campbell, Yunus Musah, and are set to lose Amaechi as well.

I know it isn't all the clubs fault but in some cases we should be acting better.
