There may be mileage in a series of threads here, if this scenario takes off. Let’s tweak a little bit of WFC history, and see what we think the knock-on effects might have been…
In your own mind’s eye…. Might the 2018/19 season have panned out differently, had Adam Chambers not hobbled off at half time in the opening game, abruptly ending his League career? Given that we were ultimately relegated by 3 points, what effect might one final full season from Chambers have had on our fortunes, and current place in the pyramid?
Perhaps not being captain may have lessened the pressure on George Dobson?
Would the signing of Russell Martin still have happened? Was it purely an intended defensive “improvement”, or was Keates also looking for more on-field experience and leadership, in Chambers’ absence?
How would the tenured and respective Chambers’ presence around the dressing room, pitch, and training ground have impacted the… erm… alleged attitudes and behaviour of some of the squad?
Would Liam Kinsella still be a WFC player, or might he have been released the following summer, with opportunities that season more limited?
The floor is open…
