I think deep down Curle knew the squad would be crap this season hence why he kept going on about good housekeeping as deflection, and many on here ended up seeing through that pretty quickly.

Now I donít know if the club thought there would be loads of desperate players out there so we could get some players whoíd be otherwise out of our price range but that clearly never happened.

I assume Curle had final say over signings so I canít fully blame Tracey but itís almost like the scouting team never adjusted their expectations of players and continued to sign L2 quality players thinking thatíd be acceptable. Was anyone we signed in the summer actually an improvement on what we had in the position last season? The club get a pass for Goode as 7 figures wouldíve been ridiculous to turn down. But Horsfall and Bolger (we paid a small fee for him too didnít we?) were obviously worse than any of our core back 3 last season - whom formed a solid base for us to build off. Others have already mentioned the slew of forwards brought in who failed to fill the void left by either Oliver or Morton.

Itís clear that good players are available Ďwithin our budgetí because we had some of them already. Can almost be certain that last seasonís league two squad wouldíve finished above this seasonís squad.

So yeah the recruitment needs an overhaul. You see other clubs sell a good find to a higher league club, then they replace them with another one and do it again. The Posh did it a number of times with strikers over the last 10-15 years.
