I think the basic problem with this site is trying to desperately find something/someone to have a pop at.
With Brent there was a universal dislike.
With Hallett he’s overseen 2 promotions in 4 years with what we’re being told was with limited budget’s
As suffers says above Hallett is probably the best chairman/owner he’s seen in his time and I have to agree and I’ve been there since the 60/61 season.
Is that wrong?
I clearly remember during the Sturrock 2 reign the clamour to buy a striker in the January window and what did we get- Steve frigging Maclean for 500k.
I’m an old git now but never to old to learn, I was guilty of knee jerk reactions during the Brent reign, “The proposed dentist debacle “ refers.
My view at the time was to just get it built, mainly because of me approaching the twilight of my life wanting to see the ground developed before I pegged it, clearly I was wrong.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing but we should make use of it and learn from the past.
Is it right that Exeter have a better academy structure than our ?
Are we happy with that ?
So the club has to start laying foundations and getting the balance right between non playing and players investment.
We’ll know if it’s right as the season progresses.
Personally I think the club are purposely lowering expectations.
If anybody thinks we’ll barnstorm the championship then a shock awaits them, however the clubs recruitment team have got it pretty well spot on last season, I mean whoever heard of Mumba, the Wrights, Butcher Saxon Early et al.
So I’m going to enjoy other supporters torments during the playoffs, look forward to the fixture list, players re-signing and arrivals and roll on August
