So we think we're missing: RHM and Khan (suspended), then Harries, Baudry, Tomlinson, Devine, Lavinier, Shade, Brann and perhaps FBT injured/ill? That'd be ten first team pros out, which is quite the list. Have to be realistic and say most clubs would struggle in that position. Not signing another defender on deadline day really looks to have been a fuck up.
Yep.

Appreciate it might be short term pain for long term gain but if Tomlinson isnít fit - then what was the point?

Even if he gets fit within a few weeks heís still not going to be match sharp for a while.
Probably just get into his stride as the season ends.

Answered your own question. We have an option to buy at the end of the season.

Not great for this season though.

Then we should have either;

Gone in for him in the summer
or
Basically written him off (for this season) and got another short term CB / LB in

ĎBoro fans seemed to think he would be out till March and thatís why a loan move to (ironically) Doncaster fell through. March is still 3 weeks away

I do think that if we've managed to take Tomlinson off of Peterborough's hands with an already in place agreement to sign him in the summer (I think they need to be compensated with a 'development fee' as he is only 22) then it's a great bit of business for next season.

However in order to properly arm the squad for the run in, depending on just how long he is out for, (you wonder if this is why Doncaster pissed about when they had the chance to sign him?) it has to be said that it's poor recruitment. The messed up Malachi thingy-Walcott transfer and perhaps not getting an experienced CB on a short term deal to add cover and experience might come and bite us in the arse. Hanging onto the coat tails of the play-offs seems our best chance this season given our current state in my opinion.

Feels like that. Strange decision to go all out on Austin and Morris but leave the backdoor wide open.


Any news on Brand? Why on earth is it taking so long  Hmmm

From JM's presser yesterday -

"We're still waiting for confirmation. The amount of conversations that have gone on between Chelsea, Swindon, and the EFL has been very high.

It's frustrating, but fingers crossed it can be completed quickly."

Will be going to this one but looking at Nemo's list of players being unavailable I don't think I will be celebrating a much needed win somehow. Charlie will get us a goal but I can see Donny scoring a couple. 9,821 in attendance with 292 Doncs travelling down.
Hope the crowd get behind the new manager and the team from the off.

Why does everything at the club take so long? Need a rocket up the ass of the club. Missing out on the Spurs defender could cost us promotion this season.

Wakey wakey.

Because behind the scenes itís still a bit of a shambles as they are still under staffed.

You only have to look at the fact that someone from the foundation is acting as a temporary club secretary (as mentioned in here) and the club were looking for volunteers to deliver lunch to the training ground.

That lunch thing is really puzzling. Surely one of the youth team can drive and there is a van or two lying around.

Injuries or no injuries the team tomorrow would still have the same deficiencies.  

We are basically completely lacking in 2 key positions, an experienced centre back and an experienced ball winning midfielder that the club donít seem to think is a position that exists. These are probably the 2 most important positions in the team and to be lacking in both areas is pretty much unforgivable and will be the difference between challenging and not challenging come the end of the season.
