Probably not .. he was just thrown in odd places 10 minutes at a time. 

It was more the shock of hiring a "random" player on deadline day, cause plan A took 28 days to find out as a not happening thing...

Love it when football fans fall in love with the idea of a particular player. Then when said player doesn’t sign:

”phew”

”dodged a bullet”

”didn’t rate him”

”good news for us”

I’m fairly sure those saying that was against him all along. I never wanted to pay more than about 800k for him so I’m glad we’re not spending 1,5 million on a league 1 player out of contract in 5 months.

Definitely think we need a goalkeeper and a centre half before the window closes. 

Pears deserves a decent run, but the lad is only 21, and most keepers tend to hit their peaks in their late 20's. So would like is to pick up someone with a bit more experience.

So if the window slammed shut now would we have a squad that would keep us up and potentially bond well and be in good shape for the summer.

There are clear positions that I’m not alone in thinking that we need to add to now but I do think that baring a horrid run we could have an entertaining 2nd half of a season and a possible run for the playoffs.

A replacement for Randolph seems obvious to arrive before February but depending on players returning from injury I think we have enough in depth to see us through till next season. 

Thats all based on no more outgoings either tho, as I feel we are thin enough that we need to replace like for like, at the minute we could do with another CB but I’d hate to think we over paid now either on a loan or permanent signing that by March with good fortune we are over staffed in that area and we have less money available for players we do want going forward for next season.

He was bloody dreadful at... Burton Albion, was it? One of the only games he started, he was shocking.

In my opinion it’s extremely unlikely the form turns back and gets us relegated from this position. If the club are happy with that then wait until summer to make additions and let the team gel ready for next season. 

However, I think with additions of quality in the obvious areas such as CB and a winger there’s a real opportunity for the play offs. And if we did manage to get in I’d be confident, as none of the 4 teams in at the minute I’d be dreading playing against; very open.

I can’t see us getting relegated this season but surely we want to start looking up the table and making a playoff push to make ourselves an exciting prospect in the summer at least

Interesting (yet not all that much) signing that adds strength in the keeper positions. We do need CD in though, and maybe RB/RWB as was said earlier.

    • @Erimus 63 I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of Gibson. In fact i actually state “gibson is not perfect”. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say “the grass is not always greener on the other side”.   Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the risk. Yes under new ownership, we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco rightly said ultimately not end up existing at all.  For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give a sh*t about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don’t want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it’s not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he’s not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
    • This adoration of Gibson has got to stop. The club is going nowhere with him as owner.
