Relegation dog fight

24 Feb 2018
Unfortunately it looks likely that oufc are going to be in a relegation dog fight this season. To light weight, not enough signings in the summer is costing us.

Early days still and we've been Jekyll and Hyde. Excellent against Sunderland and then off the pace against the much more limited Coventry. Romped to a few cup wins and had our defensive pants down in league games against Barnsley, Portsmouth and Accrington.

I was chastised by one poster on here by suggesting that I wasn't convinced that the squad wouldn't avoid relegation and today's performance still confirms that. I think we're still unbalanced and lacking in certain areas BUT do have some exciting talent.

It's a constant grumble from me but our glacial pace at signing players in the summer is still costing us and will for a bit longer. Whilst other clubs are in their stride, we're still going through pre-season motions in getting players up to speed (see Mackie and Holmes).

A long way to go, but we're going to have to pick it up soon or we could be struggling.
