Given that we seem to be ‘writing off’ this season now and letting contracts run down, I believe that the likes of Perry, Reid, Vincent, Wright and Osei all deserve a decent run in midfield and up top.
My question is where should we try and invest in some proper experience?
Back when we were in League Two under Dicky Dosh, I feel that the spine of the team was strengthened hugely with the arrival in the summer of genuine experience: Clayton Ince, Dobson, Sam and Butler were all key signings in support of younger players like Pead, Fox, Gerrard and Wright coming through.
I would love an experienced goalkeeper but given that Roberts and Rose are both under contract, I would love to see us get a captain in the centre of defence.
Someone like John Mousinho or even an ambitious move for Scott Dann in the summer would instantly strengthen the team, I think.
The money spent on Clarke, Sinclair and Guthrie two seasons ago were all expensive investments that have all proven to be flops. I’ll be glad to see the back of all of them…
Regardless of who we get, I think the middle of defence is a crucial place to start.
I know many fans want Scarr to stay and I agree that League Two is very much a war of attrition at times. Personally though, I think we need to rebuild the team around a player with a football brain and a bit of composure rather than a hoof it merchant with a killer six pack for Instagram photos from Magaluf…
The current status of our centre halves is pretty awful, I feel, so hopefully, it can be addressed in the summer.
What do other people think about where the budget should be spent when some of the current dross have been cleared out?
