Ian Royal This is good. But I can't help but feel utterly underwhelmed after finding out we'll be losing Hector.
I know we needed a lot of work done, but it feels like Clarke has decided to just bin the entire squad he inherited and start from scratch. Apart from the reasonably prudent spending involved considering the names and numbers we've got in, it all feels a little bit QPR, which makes me feel dirty. And not in a good way.
Still, it is looking like a squad that could make the top six if they all settle and gel. That's quite a big if though.
And if we did get promoted Clarke would have to do the same again next season as almost half the first team could end up back at their parent clubs.
