He was great at getting the best out of other peoples signings but his own recruitment was utter drivel in the main. Alex Harris , Taylor Morgan, Alec Cooper, David Smith. Tudur Jones, Rory Boulding,Kevin mccann,Ryan Sinnamon,fraser aird, john rankin, were the worst of the dross he signed whilst there was also a number of players who never got better than utterly mediocre. You could count the decent signings on one hand and it didnt need to be a fifers hand at that. Loved him as a player and he did a good job the first 3 seasons but he left at the right time or we simply would have been in league one a year earlier. No wins in 7 and no sign of it getting any better even though we had the second biggest buget in the league at the time. Hartley came in and punted players out and brought in some decent replacements on a cost neutral basis and we stayed up comfortably. The problems started then but if we had kept Houston we would have been in league one at that point.
