Yes, I hope there can be money found from somewhere to give Jim a chance at least a chance to find a player(s) to stiffen our defensive play, because I think if he has to just cope as best he can with what he has got, then it is a big ask to succeed with that when he has been banging his head against that particular brick wall for a while now. I thought after the 2nd half collapse against Moston Red Cocks in the cup, that we probably needed somebody in then. Now we have got one key defender back in Clarke, but unfortunately not young Sam too, who contributes so much more than just defensively in keeping pressure off the defense. Even so, if the answers were in the available players then I think our manager would have found the right combination by now. It has become more and more apparent that we need to reinforce or waste where we have improved this season. Remember we needed more goals last season and Jim's signings mainly addressed that need. Defensively, I'm sure he didn't expect such significant deterioration but regardless, the situation is we need to address the current defensive shortcomings or effectively write this season off. Given the funds it is by no means certain that the right player(s) can be found but no attempt at reinforcement is in my opinion writing off the season.
I am not one of those constantly calling for the owners to let us plough their money into the club, as if owning the club makes their money somehow our money. But in this case it could be an actual investment, so in my opinion therefore has justifiable merit.
