Without wishing to reignite the debate there will always be individuals who look disparagingly upon any signing regardless of the circumstances as football is an opinions game and everyone sees it differently, as this thread and countless others have shown. When we signed Gary Gardner, a player with bags of Championship experience, on loan from Villa even that signing was met with a level of criticism by certain sections of our support. Matty James is another whos signing was criticised as it was deemed that he wasn’t fit enough and that we were being used simply as a vehicle to get him fit and/or put him in the shop window. The right back, Hunt; he was a player that I personally had wanted us to sign for years. He was strong, quick and exactly what I wanted to see from a full back not to mention bags of experience. He was shocking, absolutely abysmal in fact. I certainly don’t think that experience is the be all and end all when it comes to signings. It’s more horses for courses and the right player for us at that particular time might be someone with zero experience who posseses all the necessary attributes and simply clicks with the club, the system, the players and the fans. I hope that we’ve now turned a corner and are looking to sign players to fit in with the actual system and the needs of the squad as opposed to signing say 5/6 number tens simply because they’ve scored highly on the checklist/spreadsheet.
