Interestingly Jake Hyde only ended up playing 7 times for Wrexham this season.....whilst Harry Lennon managed 17 games.

People need to stop being so stubborn with the age profiles. You still need older and younger players in and around the team and cant just have 24-28 year olds if you want to win the league.
I think Alex Ferguson might argue with that one and even go younger lol.

Also I think we did exactly that in 80-81, might be wrong, but we only used 17 players and I think the oldest was Derek Spence at..........28.

As always I stand to be corrected and will take it on the chin.....

There are only 3 sides in the whole division who have scored less goals... That's why I don't buy its all the fault of the midfield (even if its true that if they were more creative it would make some difference the core fact remains).

Of course its financially convenient to think its not an issue needing to be addressed because, of course, its the most expensive problem to fix. Regrettably..

What was stubborn about my post? As I said, it was an observational question.

So do you think it’s midfielders we need to invest in as opposed to a proven goal scorer? Do you feel the strikers we have have enough goals in them, given a better service?

I'm only up for getting Cheek if we can pair him up front with Jake Hyde.
Hyde not done a lot at Wrexham 14 games 3 goals. But I think he has got potential for sure only thing is would he come here for lot less wages I doubt it plus still got year left on he’s current contract.

We need to invest in midfielders who can score goals. How many goals have come from midfield this season? Therein lies the main problem.

Interesting response to @kitmanlife on Insta from Kacper last night, unfortunately I never screen shot it, but it was along the lines of "one more time" this season getting ready for the match on Sunday, a summary of all the miles travelled, three managers, away nights etc, how bumpy a ride it's been but stabilised and looking forward to next season. And Kacper replied saying something like "see you there." Could be the best news!

I took it to mean that he’s coming to Sunday’s game, but I could be wrong. 🤷🏻

I would love to see kacpar back at Southend but just think he would probably want to test himself at higher level..... hope I'm wrong and somehow we can get him back on season long loan. Massive signing if he did come back 👏
