It's unusual in that we've probably got the best strikers we've had in ages. Since Morison. Our defensive 4 is pretty standard with other seasons.

But our midfield is lacking.

And the absence of Chris Day I feel has cost us points. We used to say he was worth about 10 points a season. If we had him playing I daresay we'd be a bit higher and there wouldn't be talk of managerial changes.

Overall the squad isn't great but good. Everyone in football places more value in strikers than any other position so it's deceiving for us.

But if you look at any great side the midfield is incredible. The Man Utd team (Beckham Scholes Keane
Giggs). The Arsenal team (Vieira Pires Ljungberg Edu). The Chelsea team (Lampard Makelele Robben). The Barcelona team (Iniesta Xavi Busquets). The Stevenage team (Bostwick Bridges Drury Cole).

We have Kennedy. And McKee has potential to be fantastic. But we need at least two more top quality midfielders for it to be great. King could have been one but rumour is he isn't able to. That's also unfortunate for Sarll.
