Top down system failure
It has been a fantastic summer of sport, we have some truly excellent cricket, golf and athletics most recently. It is just crushingly frustrating that the club have been so inactive and seemingly disorganised in bringing players in.
The clearing out of useless deadwood has been the one positive piece of work. However we have brought in just one player to counterbalance this huge loss of squad numbers. With just a few days til the closure of the transfer window, this is a truly disastrous situation and one that was entirely preventable.
We have big games coming up and the squad is weak beyond belief. The fact that this is the case demonstrates that our club's management structure is failing, we have bucket loads of money but for some reason the deals have not been done. The precise reasons for this failure appear complex but there appears little doubt that the manager and owner need to shoulder a decent chunk of the blame.
It is hard to know what else to say. Most fans with intact logic circuits are struggling to get their heads around out incomprehensible lack of activity in the transfer market. I am struggling with it too, just how ludicrous can things get before someone takes control of this situation?
