Keith Southern, Claus Jorgensen, David Fox, Stuart Green plus Jermaine Wright, Joe Martin and Matty Kay and you've got a whole host of central midfielders!
The first four would appear to be the favourites to fight it out for the two central midfield spots. Keith Southern is a player highly regarded by Simon Grayson and has become the first name on the team sheet when fit. Gnashers is our trojan, the battler and driving force in the engine room. We will need his energy to keep us going throughout the season.
His partner could be Claus Jorgensen who played pretty much every game from November onwards last season. Arguably, Claus has the hardest shot at the club, as demonstrated with his thumping volley in the 3-0 win against Burnley in January.
Rivalling him will be David Fox, who seems to divide the fans. Some regard Foxy as the best passer of a ball at the club. Others are more critical of a lack of physical presence from the former Manchester United man.
Stuart Green is somewhat of an unknown quantity after arriving from Crystal Palace last January. He struggled to make an impact towards the end of last season. But Larry had been after Green for some time previous to his signing, suggesting the former Hull player has qualities to offer.
New signing Jermaine Wright prefers playing in the back four but could be utilised in a defensive midfield position. He has Premier League experience with Ipswich and was a regular at Southampton before surprisingly being released this summer.
You would expect Joe Martin to play down the left hand side although the youngster can play in the centre.
Simon Grayson is certainly not lacking in options in the middle of the park. But with so many different combinations to choose from which will Larry plump for? Pre-season is the time for experimentation so keep a close eye on who plays with who in the Seasiders midfield.
Let us know which combination you would like to see used in midfield on the forum. Or if you think another midfielder is required let us know who and why!
