Or should that be - wishing we had new owners 2 years after Patrick Cryne took over the ownership of the club. What we had in Patrick was basically a man who loved his town and his football club. I suspect he didn’t know much about football - but somehow he managed to muggle along - probably because he was getting some good advice from others such as Maurice Watkins. Patrick was a rich man - but unfortunately for us Barnsley fans he wasn’t rich enough to compete in the Championship. Many times the club had to make do and mend when it came to recruitment. But during that time a long list of young talented loan players have played at the club. So I always wanted someone to get ownership of the club that could compete in the Championship. I didn’t want someone with Zillions to spend - just someone that could purchase young players like Drinkwater or Pearson that became available while playing on loan at the club. What we have now are owners that can do just that - they can compete in the Championship. But instead of building on what was in place while Patrick was in charge - the new owners have clumsily jumped straight in and ..... THROWN THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATH WATER. The recruitment plan at Barnsley didn’t want overhauling - it just needed tweaking. IT DOES NOT NEED A 7 POUND HAMMER TO CRACK A NUT. Reverting back to the original recruitment policy would mean bringing in a few senior players and mixing them with young talent - and IMPORTANTLY YOUNG LOANEES. Then there is time to see how these loanees faired in the Championship - with a view of trying to sign them at a later date. Just imagine where we would be now if we had been able to sign some of the young loan players that have been through the club in the last 10 years or so.
