I cannot believe a little club like Southport are showing more desire to bring in quality players than Stockport County. Our average away following probably isn’t far off their average home attendance.
So many make excuses. It’s true that they’re not doing very well and definitely won’t finish above us this season, but that’s not really the point, and it’s largely down to their poor selection of manager that they’re struggling IMO.
The point is, we’re a bigger club than them in every respect. Osborne and Gilchrist are the type of player we should be targeting, we should always be looking to strengthen, even when we’re strong. If we were serious about taking this league by storm we’d be doing that.
I’m happy with the Turner signing but he’s only on loan. We’re gearing up to be in the mix. If Southport had Jim Gannon in charge they’d be dangerous IMO. All they’re missing is a good manager.
I can accept Salford bringing in a better quality of player than us and having better infrastructure. They’ve got mega bucks. We’re not looking for that level of investment, we just need someone with a few £ to spare, like Southport have got. I think it would make a massive difference and would finally see us leave this division behind.
