Almost a year ago, I was saying how we needed a nucleus of fourth division grafters. Cut your coat …
We did not get the four or five who would surely have been at budget prices and would have transformed us into a decentish squad. After all – we had the ex-Shrewsbury class acts to build around AND Kev was still under contract.
We could allow youth to develop and try out some non-leaguers.
But – how much was wasted on loan players?
(At least Neil got us Taft and has brought on the young FBs and Manny.)
Last pre-season I was also demanding a spine to the team. For those in high places who do not know this fact, ‘without a spine you end up spineless.’
Somehow McAtee and Eisa took some waking up which presumably would not have been necessary under Hurst. Kev has been a walking sicknote.
Now we find ourselves going into a new season with very few class acts and precious little likelihood of being able to attract any. To say I’m worried is a gross understatement.
