We have seen big squad turn-arounds in the recent past. Both Roy Kean and Mick McCarthy attempted squad strengthening in promotion years. They both signed too many championship players. I think signings this summer have more promise. E.g. Mavrias , Giach and Diakite all look good to me but unlikely to start a revolution. We have a better squad but a weaker first team. My team to get a point at WBA would be, if fit. Westwood, Celustka, Colbeck, O’Shea, Cuellar, Gardner, Cattermole, Ki, Johnson, Fletcher, Mavrias. I’d have Bardsley , Diakite, Giacha & Jozy on the bench.(these players are all getting paid aren’t they) Its already time to scrap for points. When O’Neil was feeling the heat early last season he could look at the table with points from dreary draws. All is not lost , as Brian Clough said’’Just win’’ and everyone will shut up.
