    It Ain't Looking Good

    I concur with your viewpoint Andy. However Bates is no fool and has a good grasp of what is needed in the way of additions to the squad. Four signings makes sense and we all know where they are needed in order to strengthen. Any more would in my opinion disrupt what is potentially a squad good enough to challenge again within the top six of our league. Too many players to choose from brings about its own problems. I cite Middlesbrough as a prime example. Last year like Leicester they were signing players left right and centre and were most peoples choice for promotion. It takes half a season to blend that many in and in this league you cannot afford to linger at the bottom for as long as they did. A good start as everyone knows is vital. I have never liked the rotational system as such and would sooner operate with a settled side and have sufficient good players on the bench available to cover for injuries should they occur. Newcastle stuck with the vast majority of their squad when they were relegated and succeeded immediately. I for one would not take a gamble on Woody or Smith too risky especially with Kis's fitness in doubt. My main man in would be Bowyer out of the old boys and Henry Landsbury from Arsenal in on a years loan.
