Full support from me I would like us competing at the top this season but the reality is the club is struggling financially and it has shown with the recruitment. I said at the start of the season I expect us to be hovering above relegation so league status is the goal for me anything else I’ll take as a bonus. UTM

Why?

When fit and firing we have a team well capable of competing in this league. Put in Hendrie, Pollock, Waterfall, Scannell, Rose, Wright, Mohsni, Hanson and we look a completely different proposition.

Listening to Ollie pre-season it seemed clear from his frustration that the team was a long way from being competitive at the top end. He also mentioned that the team was asked and agreed to a clause in their contracts with regards to the corona virus, I can only assume this would mean reduced or no pay resulting from further lock downs. He stated other clubs in the league were not adopting this practice which has probably cost us a few players signing at least.

The players you mention can put in a shift granted but some are coming to the end of their league playing careers now and will do well to play half a season if we’re being honest. If Ollie wasn’t here I would fear the worst but we have at least got a fighting chance with him at the helm, but then again with Boris latest announcement it looks like not being a case of competing on the pitch, it’s going to be off the pitch with survival of the financially fittest and the weakest paying the ultimate price thus ensuring relegation null and void.
