Put away the guitar
Whatever your feelings on signing Macauley Bonne, the cold facts are the club have waited 3 months after they let Conor Washington go, and 6 weeks since they sold Josh Davison to AFC Wimbledon and waited until the very last seconds of deadline day to try to sign a striker who used to play for us. Martin Sandgaard’s data analytics must be top notch.
More stupid, and actually on the verge of negligence is not signing another centre-half. The silence is deafening regarding Ryan Inniss’ injury assessment.
With Alex Gilbey moving on loan to Stevenage, and with Jake Forster-Caskey still likely to depart, the squad which is already razor thin, is now a further two players down.
With Charlie Barker and Harris O’Connor also moving out on loan I reckon I could get a call up for the next Pizza Trophy game!
It does appear that Sandgaard cancelled DJ’s loan move to Mansfield once Bonne deal died.
That statement on the OS is right out of the ESI or Roly playbook. Bonne may not have been ideal, depending if he has since learnt the offside-rule, and he may have walked out under a bit of a cloud, but as I said louder to myself as the day progressed: ‘He is better than nobody.”
And nobody it was. What a farce and the person I feel for the most in all of this is Ben Garner.
