Doubt GM was under any illusions about playing budget and he has had to put almost a new team together and has been unlucky with some long term injuries to Spicer, Buchanan, Wright, Brown, Ben Jones and loss of Spaven. But we look like we will be staying up and that was all that I want for this season. If some of the purported signings are for next season are true, we will be much stronger.
Yes, I reckon any coach should be given a couple of seasons to prove what they can do with their side.
We must all be aware, however, that the criteria for next season will probably be much more testing. There is a strong probability that clubs will need to finish in 8th or even 7th position to remain in this division for 2015. We won't be the only ones "strengthening" whilst working on a lower budget.
It looks as if we shall "live in interesting times".
