Totally agree with Jack with this one. The way the club have treated last season squad is shocking. Some people seem to have very short memories, wasn't it that most of last season squad were part of the Champion winning squad of a few seasons ago, the same level which we find ourselves now yet not good enough all of a sudden. Wasnt it these guys that went for weeks on end without pay yet stuck with the club whilst others like Frewy jumped ship. Their loyalty has been repaid with a right royal middle finger.....shocking.
Is this the same novice manager that led a team on 1/10th of our budget to 4 places higher than us in the league.
As for ripping the heart and soul of our club, that's not down to Heggs, that was done by the ineffective management, tactics, poor performances on the pitch and the way the club was run last season.
In retrospect, I do believe that out of courtesy a phone call could have been made even if it was to say that a clean sweep of the club was being made, but if the budget allows for one top quality striker and the choice is Sheldon or Jack then it is a no contest and as unpalatable for those who believe Jack was Mr King's Lynn it is Sheldon. That is no to deride the contribution Jack has made to our club as it has been an excellent one over a large number of years - but sometimes a club just has to move on.
I would also add that whoever from the club is responsible for the continued inane response to every bit of criticism levelled at it is just making matters worse, it causes just even more criticisms and abuse to be levelled at it, either get someone with PR nous in to help make more appropriate statements or just let it ride
Having signed Thomas & Graham on loan to the end of the season, I suspect neither can be released back to their relevant clubs.
So where does that leave us? Of all the above mentioned names Crane is the most obvious, but there again would Hoyte be prepared to come here and just be a squad player competing with Thomas and Graham (I think Peters has to play)?
Or do we look to sign him now and loan him out for the rest of the season on the understanding he will be major part of next season's squad?
Or do we believe that the current set up fine and don't chase his signature?
