Quantity not quality

MAY I congratulate Mick Wadsworth on the excellent job he has done as caretaker manager of Pools this season, after the two disastrous years under Chris Turner’s management.

He was certainly not my choice so it’s nice to be proved wrong.

I believe the club has big decisions to make this close season if we are to go to the next level and challenge for promotion to the second division.

The first is to appoint Mr Wadsworth official manager and bring in an experienced first team coach to assist him.

Mickey Barron has helped this season, but you can’t beat experience.

The good news is most of the players’ contracts are up at the end of the season.

Turner’s policy of recruiting quantity not quality can now be reversed.

I would get rid of McSweeney, Behan, Boyd, Yantorno, Humphreys, Brown, Haslam, Mackay, Bjornsson, Larkin and Greulich.

Think of how much money we will save per week.

I would keep Flinders, Austin, Liddle, Collins, Horwood, Gamble?, Monkhouse, Sweeney, Murray, Rafferty and Hartley.

We need three quality strikers, two midfielders, a squad full back and central defender.

Then watch us go!
