I think we're all so desperate to get back into the Football League we were hoping he'd come along and make 5 or 6 FL quality signings to see us go for it this season. Whether that was ever on the cards, or Jim hasn't chosen to spend that money, or there's another more sinister reason at play, we'll probably never know.
But, in the month he's been in we've signed a quality player from the league above on a two and a half year deal (Maynard), brought back arguably the most popular/talented player we've had in ten years (Lloyd) and recruited a DoF that seems very impressive on paper. I don't think that's a bad first month. If we'd won on Saturday and nicked three points against Sutton or Dover, we'd all be buzzing and thinking we really are going for it.
I said to someone at lunch that I'd almost prefer us to be 15th and well out of the play offs than be just on the fringes but probably not quite good enough to reach them. Where we are still gives us that little bit of hope to cling on to which in all likelihood won't come to anything.
I was heading for the 1992 Olympics for Judo before injury.
