We’ve had decent loan players in the past, Lolley comes to mind who was genuinely talented who never really got a chance.
The big difference is when Wharton was chairman he employed good, honest people in key positions and let them do their job while keeping in the background. A simple formula that worked.
Swann came in ripped the infrastructure apart and put the Swann family front and center of all things Scunthorpe United.
What chairman in their right mind signs players off their own back “including a RB who’s a perma crock” who he decides to make club captain..surprise, surprise the player of real experience is injured.
We have a squad now that’s about as unbalanced as a squad I’ve seen for many years and the glaring problems we had last season “lack of a spine” still haven’t been addressed.
Club now has 4 defensive midfielders , 5 wingers and a raft of strikers with no real proven track record “besides Van Veen and to some extent Olomola.
This is the worse squad in terms of balance I think we’ve ever had. This has been the result of this fecking committee down at GP playing real life Football Manager with the club signing players when they have no real idea who we really need for this level of football.
We’ve been down this road before with Swann. This is just who he is. Post covid, once things stabilize..Swann needs to move on.
Let’s not beat around the bush here, Swann is the problem and the catalyst really for all the clubs misgivings.
Complete and utter mess. It’s been stated time and time again that he needs to keep his nose out of the footballing side and let the manager come in and sign his own players, he has no idea what he’s doing but he can’t help himself.
The club is arguably in a much worse position now than when he came here…it’s a complete and utter mess. I’m all for youth been giving a chance but to go down that route with little to no experience with an inexperienced manager is just reckless.
