Looks like any new GB coach has his work cut out

Just looked at the GB national team and it seems to have only 22 players on the roster. It consists of a WR and TE on offense. 2 DL, 13 LB, 2 CB and 2 SF on defense. And a special team of a KR.

Whats going on, is it a bug?

Looks like a lot of the starters have been cut, rather than retired

I noticed this a while back........looks like a slash and burn by an outgoing coach..... I'm sure he has his reasons...

Oh dear, has someone had a tantrum before they left the job? Who was that then? I've not been paying attention.

No idea how the NT works but surely it's a 5 minute job to trawl through recent matches and reassemble the team? In which case you'd have to be pretty feeble minded to have bothered in the first place.

Former coach was Stevie. So maybe he only kept the Scottish players and got rid of everybody else.

Now the GB looks like one of those teams that are renting. From time to time, oddly enough, half of their roster magically disappears and then it is conjured out of thin air a few days later.

Why stopping at the Offence though? He should have also gutted the D, which was equally miserable during the latest campaign. In particular, I remember the Russian team passing for like 75% AND running for a mile per carry on them.

But he should have spared the K (who also moonlights as my QB in his free time). Poor guy went 2/2 on FGs, what more could he have done for Queen and Country?

Yes, I noticed this. Not sure why this has happened, maybe they wanted to give the incoming manager a clean slate? I'd advise against it, mainly because players that are released who aren't on the roster disappear forever.

Hopefully someone can get a track and trace app working in time for the next round of qualification games.

Holey sheet. But why?? Even with any granddads in the lineup this squad was formidable.

The next round of call-ups will sort this out in no time.

The dutch NT doesn't have a 64 year old QB.
Although...
It has a 64 year old Offensive Lineman,
who can also play adequately as Wide Receiver, Running Back, Defensive Lineman, Linebacker, Cornerback and Safety
and, if really needed, he can also step in as Tight End and... Quarterback
He's a kind of verrrrrry old (and bad) swiss army knife
