There’s going to be a large turnover and we are going to lose some of the little bits of quality we have got but with the RIGHT additions we could do ok.
Onarise and Taft is a great pairing if they can stay fit. Barks and one other as backup.
Beestin and Spence are both good enough paired with an old head who can put a tackle in. One or two from the kids kept on.
Green has potential and I don’t think Hippolyte is a complete write off with one good signing and possibly a young loanee out wide is ok.
Up front is a worry. Loft has shown he’s good enough with a partner when we play to his strengths and put the ball near him on occasions. Keep Jessop or Mooney as a cheap 4th means 2 quality additions needed. Hope we can bin at least 1 of Jarvis and Turan off on someone else.
Watson is under contract which is my main concern. If we open the season again with “Rory is our number one he’s good enough” then we will go nowhere. Keep Collins as 3rd and sign a proper keeper or it’s the same again and we’ll scramble for a “good enough” veteran again 10-12 weeks into the season.
If we get that then there is a chance. But if all that is in by the end of May at that point I would expect Cox to hit the ground running. Give us some entertainment and not be feeding us excuses.
