Broken Algorithms Posted July 4, 2022 Share Posted July 4, 2022 I had it in my head that Locke didn't have that many loan signings - at least at the start. We did go down the trialist route which led to Coustrain, Osei and Thornsen. We also had the "marquee" signings of McManus and Skatchel (and let's not forget M'Voto or indeed, Chris 'mini messi' Johnston). It was only really Jordan Thompson and Scott Roberts to start with, wasn't it? Obviously Hardie came in later in January, and Roberts signing was made permanent. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but quite apart from Locke's dimsal instincts as a tactician, he was a fucking rotten judge of ability. All those signings, with the exception of Hardie, were rank. There does need to be some movement soon, no doubt but I wouldn't be surprised if it's only one in the CB position and then not even in time for P'Heid. Unless the trialist striker starts showing up a lot better (and let's face it, that's unlikely) then my guess is the striker signing likely will be a loanee with probably half the championship fighting over the same same three names.Wasn't McManus a loan? He was still with Fleetwood when with us. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
