I’m not complaining and I understand that there are still 3 weeks before the Transfer window closes but we are woefully short of capable players to compete in this league.
The fact that Adkins couldn’t bring on any subs until a cameo for Clayden in the last couple of minutes said it all. We played OK in a tight game but we are only an injury away from struggling at the wrong end of the table with the current squad. Jayden Stockley was outstanding on Saturday and if he gets injured heaven knows what happens to our season.
All this can change with some good loan signings and in recent years, Cullen, Bielik, Millar, Maatsen and Stockley have all arrived that way but we are certainly leaving it late and we appear more threadbare than ever, particularly in the attacking and creative player department.
Despite the current hoohah surrounding Thomas and his ambitious plans which are most welcome, ultimately fans will only come if we have a (mostly) winning team. The attendance numbers will quickly dwindle if we start losing.
Lets hope that major reinforcements are arriving soon otherwise we are going to have a very difficult season.
