Much has to do with not having established a spine to the team from the start – with some allowance made to cover injuries. A spine eventually appears – and lo – the squad starts to hang together. How many times have I written the words ‘catalyst needed’, I wonder?
For quite some time now, I’ve been trying to get the point across that the squad is not full of total duffers like quite a few have been claiming.
Take last night. I would be delighted to see all those players with us at the start of next season – and that probably also applies to the bench as well as KVV and McGahey.
Even the GK is looking like the custodian his playing history tells us he ought to be.
The manager stops playing one up front and there is a great improvement.
Who’d have guessed?
This squad is not all that far from being a promotion contender next season. Most is going to depend on how well we do in hanging onto our better players.
I’ll be heartbroken if Gilliead goes. He’s the kind of player I would go out of my way to watch.
