The midfield were, largely, fine. It's the attitude and the way played were sometimes questionable. Notts county, port Vale, Northampton away, for example.
Yes we need that 'spark' in the midfield, but we also need an enforcer, and wingers who can create, but mostly, I think this season we lost out because our threat was 1 man, sometimes 2 men. When that's the case it is much easier to nullify.
As much.as I agree we need to upgrade the team and the squad, the surgery isn't as major as I thought it would be. We have a good baseline to work from, if we apply ourselves properly.
Completely agree that we do not require major surgery and have a good basis to work from. Our midfield was ‘fine’ overall, but doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be looked at for a slight tweak to our rotation options as in the end we didn’t get over the line after we had been strong in that department up until later on in the season. If Bishop is going to tire a bit late on or Mellis isn’t quite at his best we need to deal with it a bit better next year in my opinion.
Agree that wide and forward areas should be the main focus though particularly with Walker leaving and sounds like Dempster is targeting those areas too.
