I've tried to match players who have come in/left by their position, and then by their age/squad role (e.g. young prospect rather than guaranteed starter). I've not included Moussa or Paul Smith

In - 9 players
Out - 9 players

- Oxley replaces Bentley - jury is out on whether Oxley is good enough to start, let alone be anywhere near the quality of Bentley. However this was to be expected. Oxley is unlikely to have any sale value. Downgrade
Overall - Downgrade

Full back:
- We haven't lost any fullbacks (O'Neill, White, Coker).
- We've gained Demetriou, who is likely to be an upgrade on O'Neill and White, but leaves us with three RB's which is unbalanced.
- Kyprianou is progressing nicely and could be genuine cover for Coker.
Overall - Strengthened

Centre back:

- Significant changes here.
- Bolger (young prospect) replaced by Sokolik. Personally I thought Bolger was pretty decent on the pitch and Sokolik has stalled somewhat. I'd expect Sokolik to get limited minutes going forward and to be 4th choice. I'll rate this as a Downgrade
- Prosser (experienced squad player) replaced by Anton Ferdinand. If Ferdinand can get fit then looks a significant upgrade
- Ryan Inniss (loan) is a gain, and appears a good prospect. Has L1 experience and will provide competition. Contract with CP expires at the end of the season.Upgrade
Overall - Strengthened

Centre midfield:
- Payne replaced by Adam King. Downgrade, although the finances received from the EPPP will offset that. King doesn't appear to offer the same attacking and goalscoring threat, although is clearly talented. Downgrade
- Deegan has left which leaves us a player shorter in CM compared to last season
Overall - Downgrade

Wide midfield:
- Worrall replaced by McGlashan. Jury is out on McGlashan, but he doesn't appear to have the goal threat or energy of Worrall. Downgrade
- We've lost Hurst although the return of a fit McLaughlin (for now) offsets that (fully?).
- If we want to play with wide men we are very short.
Overall - Downgrade

- Hunt replaced by Cox. Significant upgrade
- We've gained Nile Ranger, who has already shown his quality and appears to be a good addition for when he's fit. Upgrade
- We're still very light up front with only 2 current fit first-team quality strikers.
Overall - Strengthened
