Are we really going to try to offload DJ, Alex Gilbey, JFC and Craig MacGillivray before the window closes? How light do we need this wage bill to be? And how many do we have to sell to add?
The bench is already packed full of youngsters, and players like Aaron Henry need a loan deal to stop their progress being blunted like Albie Morgan’s was.
Gilbey wants to be nearer to home, and therefore his Lincoln move has hit the skids. JFC was on Leyton Orient’s radar. DJ, Tuesday night’s goal scorer, is in MK Dons and Lincoln’s headlights.
MacGillivray wants first team football after making 43 appearances last season. I can’t blame him, although he never convinced me, but he possibly deserves better. Are we okay with Harness as Wollacott’s deputy especially the Ghanaian international will likely be missing at the World Cup.
I’d rather keep Kirk over DJ based on performances so far, and in thinking I know how Garner wants to utilize his players. I’ve always liked JFC and think he still adds good value to the squad.
All this to pick up another centre-half? If Garner manages to smuggle in another striker and a left-back too, then I will tip my hat.
Better news on the injury front in that Corey Blackett-Taylor did no significant damage, and will be back in action soon. Likewise Conor McGrandles who will wear a lightweight cask on his broken hand.
