I’ve never known a season like this one with regards to injuries. We once had 13 out at once and even now we still have 9/10 out. That shouldn’t be used as an excuse with how poor we are currently, but it has been an hindrance for us.No real surprise about Shrewsbury. Odd appointment. In spite of what Floreat says, from the outside many people picked Shrewsbury to struggle, so I never thought they were going to be bursting into the top 6, but ultimately the run of results they have been on is enough for any manager.
Ironically, one of their few wins was against us but even then it was as poor a Shrewsbury team as I can recall playing for a good few years. They're often very strong at home.
We’ve got the main core of players from last season still here and with a bit of luck, we could have been pushing the top 6 last season but again, injuries put that one to bed when they hit much more frequently in March. I know you’re only as good as your league position suggests, I get that, but this group of players really are underperforming and Matt Taylor was responsible for that. We’ve scored 18 goals in 28 games, that’s embarrassing at any level of football. The way he set us up was extremely negative and he seemed to be more worried about the opposition than us.
The club needs a lift. A big lift as the supporters know that we’ve been stagnant for too long now. Ever since Hurst walked out and left us for Ipswich it’s been shit. Truly shit. I know we’re highly unlikely to find a loan trio of Dean Henderson, Ben Godfrey and Carlton Morris in the same season again, but us Salop fans just want to see some attacking football a and for us to have more possession again. We know we’d get that under Paul Hurst. Who knows, lightening might just strike twice again. I mean, it worked when Graham Turner returned to the club back in 2010.
