There is a lot of angst about JJ’s league position contract deal with Sandgaard .
It seems to me that the deal makes perfect sense. In the event that the results had continued to dip under JJ as they did under Adkins and we were in danger of relegation then the fans would be calling for JJ’s head regardless of how well he is regarded.
I think JJ has done a good job so far but given that there is still a small chance of us getting dragged into a relegation battle, if I was Thomas I’d want to be sure that was a not an outcome before I confirmed JJ’s position for next season. Hopefully, we are pretty close to that now.
I am all in favour of giving JJ a clear run at next season as early as is sensible but I understand where Thomas is coming from.
There is also no doubt that the current group of players with a few exceptions are nowhere good enough to get us promoted next year.In terms of the team there is a lot of work to be done to be competitive.We need more warriors like Innis, Dobson and Stockley on the pitch. This division is brutal and relentless and we have too many inconsistent players.
Early recruitment this summer will be key rather than all this hanging around – all the business has to be done late nonsense – by which time we’ve already lost a few games next August, while the team beds in !!
