Hoban is way short of what he used to be, Marco is an absolute dud and we are plagued by injuries. On the plus side Connolly is improving. Would Sule not be contract bound at Barnet?
Hoban is a different player now, less all over the place but is sniffing out the poacher type chances from rebounds or the keeper spilling the ball. He is top of the scoring charts and with a similar return from him for the remainder of the season he should be 20 goals plus. Now maybe in general the league doesnt have absolutely outstanding strikers but Hoban's contribution cant really be faulted much so far. We do need another striker as Tagbajumi isnt working out and maybe a different style of striker that could also play along side Hoban rather than a like for like. But as has been noted plenty the manager doesnt seem to want to mix it up tactically so if Tagbajumi moves on it would be no surprise to see another similar signing.
For the size of squad we are a bt thin but then we are carrying a lot of injuries that are and have been long term. Broken ribs, broken tibia both from relatively minor collisions. Chevdukas ankle seems like there is no obvious return there. Byrne off injured on his return, Mountney injuring the knee and as he was hitting great form. Throw in what seems to be a disinterested front man. No specialist left back bar Massey who seems to need a break or to be pushed for his place. So we definitely do need bodies in in July. Alan Keane like short term signings even, if available.
