Renewing Monday

On the back of my post earlier today about the relative strength of our squad and our chances for this coming season, I was delighted to see that we have followed up by signing left-sided Johann Berg Gudmundsson and experienced centre-half Tal Ben Haim.

I think we still need an experienced striker to get the best out of Igor Vetokele, but I am comfortable that Roland Duchatelet has passed the ambition test and I will be renewing three season tickets on Monday which will prompt a fourth. Drop in the ocean of course but I haven't felt comfortable about renewing previously given all the uncertainties of the "network model."

At this point the eyes turn to Big Bob. I will be making the trip over the hill tomorrow and will also be paying to see the match rather than carrying on boozing with the olim reprobi.

Mid-table looks a safe bet.

Good to see your renewing. I did straight away, not because I was sure all would be good, just can't help myself. 33 years and counting of a mixture of agony and ecstasy and I just can't help myself!

With the sensible investment that's gone on (both on and off the field) I've a good feeling that this season ain't going to be anywhere near as bad as we've been subjected to over too many recent years. (The league one win the exception).

Credit where credits due. I've always liked Bikey and the team is taking shape and dare I say looking well balanced, I agree with you on the striker situation but I'm no more confident that something will develop on this front.

Sorry, didn't proof read. I'm more confident.
