However, by all accounts (and by all accounts, I mean the level of noise coming from the club about it) this is the deepest and strongest squad that we have pretty much ever had, and the manager has had more support in the market than any other manager in the history of the club. Yet losing at home to Rochdale & Lincoln in the 2 cup games so far this season means the results in cup competitions are on a par with times in the last 15 years when the squad wasn’t as strong and deep - and in some cases, downright rubbish, so maybe the squad it isn’t as strong as we are led to believe. It’s early days, but from my 'perspective' I was hoping for something that was quite clearly different from before.
Of course this analysis is spot on and totally correct. This is our strongest squad ever in number and quality, ok at times we've had better individual players. Alas some teams in this bottom division also have their strongest squads ever. My concern is that SE can't or hasn't put out a settled back four yet. As for the booing last night, most I saw stamped their feet and stalked off like jilted lovers after seeing their ex in a pub with another
