Worried of Albury

Hope all you guys are enjoying your summer, even if the weather feels like Autumn and every COVID day feels like groundhog day- however, Engeeerlaand are filling the void and cheering us up , let’s hope it continues tonight too.

Apart from Wigan who seem determined to drive through the division next season with a host of newly acquired experienced and talented League 1 players, none of the other League 1 clubs have done much business. However, I’m still a bit worried that we still have so much recruitment to do even as the first friendly fixture looms into view this Saturday.

If we are to live up to Thomas’s hope to blast through this division and Nigel Adkins promise to emulate the end of season Hull celebrations, we will need a lot of new players.

Apart from the Goalkeeping position, we need strengthening all over the pitch in every area and are well behind where we finished last season in terms of squad talent.

There seems to be a real shortage of rumours and whispers from Sparrows Lane. The arrival of Thomas this week should surely start to break the new player logjam and start to get us excited, otherwise my worryometer will continue to rise

  1. Wigan are doing great business, signing out of contract Charlie Wyke is a definite coup , I have always rated him since he was with Carlisle, had a quiet spell after a bad injury 2 years ago but was in very good form at the end of last season. Wigan also have young players in their academy who could have an impact. Steve Avory’s recent article on the CAFC website makes no mention of Jay Mingi who I thought was very promising – probably left!!

  2. I share your concerns and hope we see a pick up in incoming transfer activity before the season gets underway, which is fast approaching.

  3. In this window we have lost 12 players and recruited 3. We are way behind where we need to be, and remember, we have effectively lost Jake F/C to injury. We need 3 defenders, 4 more mid-fielders and at least 1 more striker…..I just cannot see that hapeening and we have some pretty tough league games in the early weeks of the new season…..Things DO NOT look good!
