The squad we have now has a year together under their belt. They've got systems, tactics they know inside out, something which wasn't evident for the early part of last season. They're greater than the sum of their parts. The value of going into a season with 90% of the squad having spent the last 12 months winning and beating teams from higher up is huge. The momentum is forwards not backwards, as it was last time we entered this league. Those players know what is expected of them.
There are teams in our league who will be expected to challenge who aren't even paying their players on time. There are teams who don't even have 11 players signed on.
We're going to miss Duxbury and Warburton but people said the same of Montrose, Ball, Lloyd and Oswell. None of them had a direct replacement (in style of play) but we improved after they left.
JG knows what he's doing. We'll sign two players before the opening day and we'll win.
