So far so good.

I think the only concern I can come up with is the fact neither of our in form strikers are ours.
I donít know what clauses are in each loan deal but itís always a gamble to rely heavily on loan players.

Agree so far so good, but we know from long and often bitter experience, there are many and various pitfalls that can derail a promising season.

My first taste, 63/64. Just after the SDTS 5-0 v Orient we go to Plymuff and win 4-2, so with a third of the season gone we're in auto for promotion to the top flight.

What can possibly go wrong, big crowds, national media attention on a crop of highly talented young players?  We then win 1 in 17.

I'm not sure anyone had a ready answer to that. It was more or less the same players.
