As a policy I agree that our recruitment, of both players and manager has simply not worked. Once again since the end of yet another poor season we have seen a huge turnover in staff throughout the club.
A move away from the original approach is evident but the calibre of player brought in points to either a lack of ambition or more likely a lack of finances
In the last month we have brought in the likes of Dearnley, Piergianni, Jamboti and Borthwick-Jackson -and yes three of those had already been on loan here but you could argue it allowed the club to assess whether the players are a good fit for our crazy club. Add those to the likes of Rowe, Hamer and Wheater (if they remain at the club) and we have the start of a league 2 squad...and not a #frenchlad among them.
It seems to me that AL and MO don’t seem to know what ‘the plan’ is and are still reacting too slowly to the failure of their “bring ‘em in cheap and sell ‘em on at a profit” foreign player strategy.
Recruitment has changed over the past year but it still seems haphazard at best.
I agree that the recruitment policy is important but I also agree that the way the club is run and the way the staff are treated is of paramount importance too.
The bottom line line is that until a buyer steps forward, and AL is willing to sell, the anniversary season is likely to be more of the same.
