Not sure tbh .

We’ve lost Norwood. He picked a fight with anyone willing, but didn’t score much, and have brought in Lapado who has an excellent record in League One.

We’ve lost Bonne. He was effective at putting the ball in the net for the first 20 games ( if that ), then couldn’t hit a barn door from 2 inches . We’ve brought in JJ . Who, granted is a young player . But OMG him and Jackson are going to scare the shyte out of defences at this level.

We still have Chaplin and Aluko.

We’ve finally sorted the left side of the team. Thus should take the pressure off Burns.

I think we just need another striker (#9)

I’d say ….” The futures Bright”…
…………….,,” The futures Blue n White “

Norwood scored a goal for every 180 mins he played on the pitch. That's decent.

I'd have kept him.

Me too. He was a player I would hate to have played against.

How are we getting weaker ?
Just my feeling of who's coming in vs who's leaving Mike. Part of it will be because I don't know of the players coming in and none excite me, but sure, that does not mean they're not great signings, just I remain to be reassured.

My main worry is we only had 5 players score more than 3 goals last season and 3 of them have left, that would be 4 out of 5 if Chaplin were to leave. As flawed as they were for various reasons, Celina, Bonne and Norwood scored important goals and as far as I can tell, we do not have satisfactory replacement for them, as might have shown today with dominance, yet a tight scoreline. Ladapo might be decent, I don't know, but on paper he's a player who's had 745 different clubs and one decent season (which was 4 years ago), and he spat his dummy out at his last club. It doesn't make me sing 'WE'RE GOING UP'!

Well if its any help I saw a post on twtd yesterday of a tweet that’s says “ Hirst bid accepted, coybs “. Time will tell. It is very early days snd I suppose to expect near perfect performances from all the players after just 2 games, is a big ask. This squad hopefully can only improve .
