We are essentially a couple of results from safety.

We have a squad of players who are fairly old or very young. Quite a few who are injury prone and some who quite frankly haven't earned their money with performances.

I don't usually advocate wholesale changes but we have to make quite a few next season.

I have a feeling coker may leave us ( hope he doesnt)
Ferdinand should go
Kiernan should go. Never likely to be fit!
Turner white and Demetriou to stay.
Oxley may leave. Which would be a blow.
I have high hopes for kyprianou and bwomono but maybe a season long loan in the conference would help both mature.

Midfield is literally a minefield.
Brightest spot this season is the emergence of young Drew. I'm sure he will be here next season and we should be looking to keep on improving his game.
Timlin. Committed player. 1 year deal.
Wordy. Pricey and always injured. Release
Wright. Tied down to a deal but I've not seen anything from him yet To suggest first team regular.
Kightly and Macca are contracted
McGlashan should be moved on.

Up top is our biggest problem area.

How many league goals have our strikers scored this season?

Probably about 15 between 6 or so players! Criminal...

Personally i would have a clean sweep.

Cox and Fortune never really look like scoring.
Ladapo and Harrison are not the answer.
Robinson... do I even need to say anything?
Wabo shows promise and should be given some pre season game time.

I would invest some pennies in this area. Find a couple of young and regular scorers in league two or the conference and pay a fee. Sammy smodics at col u would be a start.

I think it's essential that we bring down the average age of the squad. The pressing game which CP likes to employ is impossible to sustain with old legs and a cabbage patch of a pitch.

That brings me onto the next change. Bring in another top groundsman. I have no doubt at all that we have lost points this season due to the state of the pitch. It is an abomination for a league 1 club in the south east. Ffs It needs sorting properly next season.


I do honestly think our future is bright under CP but I think he needs to be bold in the reshaping and rebranding of our style of football. Much like the teams he played in. They attacked with lots of purpose and swagger and I'd like to see the same.

Finally. June and July could be pivotal in the history of the club. We should know before a ball is kicked in the league next season whether we will be allowed to move to FF or not.

As this season dwindles the next looks a big one.

What are your thoughts or suggestions?
