On the surface I’m extremely worried with the lack of depth and experience in the squad so close to kick off… Deano’s honesty and openness was refreshing to begin with - he seemingly identified the weaknesses in the squad (lack of experience being one), he made it clear exactly the type of player he was after and a plan to get them. However, now for one reason or another things seemingly haven’t worked how he intended and I cant help but feel this intial honesty and lack of experience may come to bite him. His constant talk of imminent signings in the press is annoying, and ultimately now seemingly further highlighting his inexperience. Yes we know he is working against constraints, though as was every other manager previous and these constraints can’t have been a shock… That said, he’s a legend and should be given the season to survive and then begin assembling his own squad. He may have had a poor transfer window, but the work he did at Wrexham was about setting up a side that’s difficult to beat, and there’s no reason he can’t do the same here. For all the stick they’ve took, the likes of Morris, Kinsella and Baka had shown initial promise, and if Deano can get these playing - along with a couple of the other kids emerging (Cockerill-Mollett, Candlin etc) then we could suprise ourselves. Ultimately come Saturday evening anything could have happened, and some of the optimism could have returned. Let’s just hope the “You don’t win anything with kids” quote is proven wrong again!
