Cant remember who it was last week who posted about this and how far behind we are, how lucky we were last season etc. I questioned what other teams had done last season.

Well Ive found this site:

<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.football-lineups.com/tourn/The_Championship_2016-2017/Stats/Players_Used/">http://www.football-lineups.com/tourn/The_Championship_2016-2017/Stats/Players_Used/</a>

A quick look through shows that all those team at the top use less players then those at the bottom. Discounting players who made 5 or less appearances last season as every club will blood a couple of youngsters at some stage who may not be in the current 1st team make up. Players used:

Newcastle 20, Brighton, Leeds 21, Derby 22, Fulham, Reading 23, Huddersfield, Norwich 24, Sheff wed 25.

To me this shows 2 things, we were not lucky last season we had coverage in every position. If you name a first team injury its easy to name at least one player who will have fitted in. This does show however we are still 4 or 5 short for this season. You would imagine 2 or 3 loans included in that mix.
