I see there is an article on the BBC today with several "prominent" people calling for the government to step in. They say that that is not for the prem clubs to support the lower league.
I hope the government doesn't step in personally. Theres ridiculous amount's of money in the game that needs to be re-distrubuted. If clubs havent got income from gates, they should be covered by their insurance.
I can just imagine Nicks Man U equivalent hammering maguire again after last nights performance. The club still haven’t replaced Ferdinand.... The first few games of the season has seen some terrible defending, its not just saints
Looking at the lists below, lot of outgoing. I appreciate that quite a few of those players where not contributing. However I would argue that at the moment we are slightly weaker.
Right back looks weaker KWP won me round in the end and if he can sustain that level for a season will be good. Im not sure he is as good as Cedrick though. Plus Varley has gone massively backwards.
Central backs - Who knows we have taken a punt on an unknown. The last 4 punts havent worked.
Midfield -Central midfeild has to be weaker and a real area for concern. Maybe Slattery will come back into the fold and step up. If we lose Romeu and JWP at the same time it dosent bare thinking about. I dont buy into pushing Stephens forward. Hes not played that role and would be a massive gamble.
