Weíre weaker definitely but weíre just not rich enough to be stronger and thatís despite 200,000 ST sales and McGinn money that weíve definitely already had and our Europa League run which came without any costs at all, just free money and the dryborough cup gate receipts from 1972 and the fiver Ronnie spent in the club shop on the Hibs Paddington Bear when we got promoted in 1981.
The worry is if we do regress, season tickets will disappear like snaw off a dyke. Hope something happens over the next few hours.
If we have a poor season (I know Iím jumping the gun) then a lot of fans will feel let down after they have backed the club in numbers. Suppose you never know what will happen, but we arenít anywhere near as strong as last season.
Imo we were always going to be weaker this year. There was no way we could replace Mcginn and Mcgeouch. So what we have is stop gaps and potential as that is all we can do in the hope that we can find the next Mcginn. The level Mcginn was playing at when he left took time, we are not going to get a player at that level so can get potential in the hope they can develope like mallan or stop gap older players like milligan to keep us going. Unfortunately that is our reality.
Yea at the moment it would appear we are not as strong in midfield as we were last season, but we have still done good business
