It doesn’t look like Chris Hughton is anywhere close to signing new players yet – to strengthen our paper-thin squad.
Chris and Colin – short of players
Yesterday we heard that Fulham striker Kamara will not be coming in, since Fulham need him in their squad as they play in Europe this season.
And we just cannot help thinking that the loan business will have to wait to nearer the last day (November 25th) of this window, before we are forced into some business, simply because that will save the club money.
Isn’t that the way the club has been run over the summer ?
The club was very wary of bringing any new players in, as we ditched as many as 10 players, but only brought in a couple – Danny Simpson and Peter Lovenkrands.
We could be wrong, but with Ashley still on board, we have to think that could be the way the dynamic duo of Ashley/Llambias are now thinking. And even that they can sell the club soon, without having to delve into the loan market at all.
After last night’s terrible result, manager Chris Hughton wants a response from the team on Saturday, as he told Newcastle United TV:
“I’m very, very confident that we’ll get a positive response on Saturday,” “We’ve got a group of lads who have been excellent this season and they will be desperate to put right this result against Plymouth.”
“It’s an excellent chance, at home, to get another three points and we’ll be looking to bounce back with a win.” “We will regroup now on Thursday and start preparations for what is another big game.”
“Thankfully we only wait three days to play again because these boys will want to prove that Wednesday’s result was a one-off.”
We really hope the players do want to prove last night was just an off day, and we’d like to see the lads start the game on Satursday like the proverbial steam train!
Good words from Chris above, and with Plymouth bottom of the league, surely we can get all 3 points on Saturday, however we play?
But there we go again – thinking we have a good team – and the truth is we’re not quite sure right now.
And in fact our next two league games are against the bottom two clubs as we play at Ipswich Town a week on Saturday, and they are currently second bottom with just 3 points from the first 7 games.
