This post though in 1 sums up getting it right and how hard it is. You want immediate success and say the play offs is bollocks and then by the end of the post think we should be putting the foundations in place

No, not at all.

I am saying the top priority should have been to build a squad for getting out of this Division, the number two priority (if we wanted to go down the rough diamond road) would have been to build the infrastructure to support it, and then the third priority should have been the recruitment switch, applied gradually.

Anyone thinking a club with 7m in Revenue in Div cannot support a promotion chasing team is nuts.  Bradford only just got the same Revenue as us by selling some players for good money.

We have done it arse about face.

Morgan Roberts recalled from his loan at Aldershot.

Tom Wynn-Davis swapping North Leigh for Wantage Town on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

EDIT: just beaten to it!

What would be interesting (to me at least) would be if the club did some kind of 'loan watch' update on the official site, so that fans could be kept abreast of how our loan players are getting on. I think Parsons has a few goals for Farnborough on his loan i'm but not totally sure. And North Leigh/Wantage Town is pretty low down so getting match information isn't necessarily very easy.

I've liked what I've seen from Roberts when he has played. Looks tricky and might just be the 'beat the man' forward/winger that can unlock that final third for us.

Iíd say the latter, seems to have been a sub or subbed off early when he did start and wasnít in their squad Tuesday night so pointless him being there really. Similar to Aguiar at Torquay the Aldershot fans didnít seem very impressed by Roberts, a bit of a concern that our fringe players seem to struggle at National League level.

Aldershot fans think he has been sent back as he wasn't of a good enough standard, shame really as I hoped he would kick on there.

You win some you lose some with lower league signings.

Aguiar came in last season and looked good enough to play his part but this season he hasn't kicked on and hardly had any game time.

Hopefully Roberts will be exactly the opposite of that.

Does sound like he is back due to lack of game time from the presser. Hopefully he takes the chance to impress Morris in training.

If Roberts has any sort of Div 4 or above type of career I'd be very surprised.  Far too raw for this stage in a career I think.  Best he can probably hope is to drop back down a bit and work his way up instead.

Aguiar could probably fake it till he makes it in Div 4.  he has a decent enough shot on him and looks a bit of a threat in the final third, but he's so far away from being able to get into most games.  He is a flat track bully type - looks OK when we are on top.  I'd say Darcy is a bit better than him, and I'm not all sold on Darcy.  Good technique, neat and tidy, and the odd shot, but he really flits in and out of games as well.  A very poor mans Payne, who was a player too good for Div 4 but not good enough to take on Div 3 in the same way.

Too much of a leap it seems, coming back to this level.  As per the feedback, he seems below NL at this stage, so a promotion with a club lower down, or a move up one league first would have been better.  He looks way off this level.
