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...

Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 23/3/02 by wessex_exile
Ahead of another vital match in our bid for promotion back to League 1, this time at t’other St James’ Park in Devon, we return to our previous spell at that level, and dip again into one of the odder football rivalries (given that over 100 miles separates us from them).
Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
