cannot believe we havent even tried to replace macclum, mid table for us i think
Is it not obvious!!? The money simply isn’t there in the club anymore. We won’t see McCallums or yeates’ down here anymore unless we can get another 1,000 on the gate or a money man comes and buys the club.
Simply need more money coming in before we can see big names pkayers like McCallum. Instead now I predict we’ll see decent players and young players coming to the club.
This year will be ok though. We have a cracking defence and possibly the best keeper in the league. Just the other end of the pitch needs some work. I said before the notts game that there would be a lot of 1-0’s this season!
I agree that we can't go out and buy a McCallum or a Yeates.
But as well as developing young promising players (which is very important for us) we also need to look at players who have been released by FL teams (to sign), or are out of favour at FL teams (to loan) who maybe have got some experience and have something to prove (and want to get back into the FL). I'm sure that's what we're doing already.
McCallum was like that - so were Coulson, Mandron.... and a few others.
As for the team - solid mid-table unless we do unearth a couple of gems. Defence is generally good, as you say (Max seems to have lost a bit of confidence in the last couple of games - if we get behind him I'm sure it'll come back), Payne is a good addition but plays further back than Yeates, so we need someone there, and we have two good holdup forwards so we just need a goalscorer to play with them! Not asking for much really!
