Lithgow/Pepe I imagine would be front runners for that

Poplatnik has taken #15 which was Pepe's number.

Trying to keep everyone to one position, and using last season's 4-2-3-1 I think our depth looks like this...

GK: Ross Stewart; Gary Maley; Brian Schwake

RB: Nicky Devlin; Steve Lawson; Hakeem Odoffin

CB: Jon Guthrie; Efe Ambrose; Jack Fitzwater; Alan Lithgow; Cece Pepe

LB: Aaron Taylor-Sinclair; Jack McMillan

CM: Marvin Bartley; Keaghan Jacobs; Craig Sibbald; Robbie Crawford; Carlo Pignatiello

RW: Alan Forrest; Dolly Menga

CAM: Scott Pittman; Scott Robinson

LW: Aymen Souda; Scott Tiffoney; Rafaelle De Vita

ST: Lyndon Dykes; Matej Poplatnik; Jack Hamilton

 

Not bad depth especially when you consider how many of those can play in a few different positions. From that I'd expect Schwake, Pepe, Pignatiello, and De Vita to leave either on loan or permanently, and possibly Stewart (depending on who we sign) and Hamilton too. Think we'll keep Lithgow unless he pushes for a move or we bring someone else in (Brown?) - 4 natural CBs gives us cover for injuries/suspensions and means we can move to 3 at the back and still have one on the bench.

Notice Fitzwater played with Nicky and BBJ at Walsall...wonder if they're looking to use that understanding at the back although according to some sources Fitzwater is a leftback.

Transfermarkt has him down as a CB that can play RB occasionally

I'm assuming he's still on trial with us but we've just signed a striker so not sure what will happen. I'd like to see us sign him if he's cheap enough for us tbh, but that would give us 4 strikers unless he can play out on the wing?

Poplatnik in his first interview on LFC TV there saying "I'm a striker, I'm here to score goals", not a bad way to talk yourself up at least. Here's hoping he does that.

If Dykes is still here when we ko then it'll be an exciting season ahead striker wise, we didn't have any other options up front last season, it was just Dykes and midfielders playing off him. It was the one area we were pretty thin on the ground. Looking forward to seeing what Poplatnik can do.

Hopefully Fitzwater is as good as Guthrie and Devlin.

Some of the Walsall fans rate him a lot higher than big bad Jon

What’s Livi fans opinion on McCrorie?
 

As a Rangers fan I’m glad he is getting out for more top level experience, and he seemed to be getting positive reviews there last season.

Wasn't as good as Sarkic, who we had on loan from Villa up to January, Kelly wasn't up to much either in his first spell though, and improved greatly the 2nd time he played for us. Needs to work on his kicking, but again comparing him to Sarkic, who's kicking was excellent.

Tend to agree although comparing him against Sarkic is probably a little unfair. Sarkic didn't have the best of games in the betfred but then really seemed to settle and was an excellent keeper by the time he left us.

McCrorie was fairly average in his few games with us but could probably have settled as well. Certainly the Doonhamer fans seemed to rate him highly albeit at a lower level.

Can't recall him making any obvious gaffs tbh. 

Not having him for the games against the rangers will be a pain though; particularly if Stewart goes out on loan again.

I would consider the goals he let in against Celtic and Hamilton to be verging on gaffes. At the very least, they were poor.

Having said that, he has performed well in other games. Notably, against St Johnstone and Hibs. I'm happy that he'll be back for this season. I think there is a lot more to him than we've seen so far.

Shaping up to be a very decent squad for the coming season.

Rohan Ferguson on trial at Livi, that'll give McCrorie competition for his place, he'll get his chance to impress when we play Sevco.

I think he's a class keeper. He looked solid on his debut. There was a couple of misplays but that's normal for a keeper. I'm interested to see how good he will be this season with regular games and properly knowing the defence. 

Personally, I'm delighted with the signing and hope he has an outstanding season.

In different photos, it looks to be more of a dark yellow. Difficult to tell. 

Not a fan of the collar.
