Hippo gets far more stick on here than he deserves. He is no world-beater but he tries – which is lot more than many did last season.
We know that Jarvis was a longshot with his record but he was playing when the team we were putting out was an undiluted horror. I recall him taking a couple of goals well and frankly – have we really seen enough to judge yet?
If we put out a greatly improved team – let us say one which rises to the dizzy heights of one notch up from mediocre – perhaps we will see the best of him.
As for MacAtee – he needs to leave for both his own sake and for the club. I actually wonder if we had guessed he would inevitably follow Hurst and consequently made him a contract offer just to get a few bob back from the Cods.
I reckon that Hurst will again bring out the best in him. There is a seriously good player in there. Is there any reason why we cannot have a sell-on clause too?
