25 is not very big? Games come thick and fast and niggles will become injuries and Some squads could easily have 5 or 6 players out by Xmas. Add on to this the problem of covid and isolation and suddenly a manager could be picking from a squad of 15/16. Blackburn had two out because of covid and County 4 out. Isolating for 10 days could mean missing three games.
I would be very worried about any manager claiming he wants "a small squad" this season. It is simply not sensible
