'I am down to the bare bones' was an expression that we heard a former Pompey manager use all the time - even though this was nowhere near as down to the bare bones we are now, this really is bare bones!
What is it, 15 pro players, with experience, at the moment with a handful of 1st year pros to add to them, it does not get much more bare bones than that...
That said I maintain my thoughts that most of those released a players that needed to be released my concerns are though that I do feel this will get worse before it gets better, numbers wise anyway, as we 'probably' will still see one or two go - but we will start to increase the numbers shortly, we will need to.
I would also suggest that we will need more than the 5 or 6 that it is 'said' we will bring in. We will do this though; I do not doubt this :-) I would doubt the fact we could get by with as few as 5 or 6 players though!
Just imagine how nervously twitching this guy would be about now if he was still here, he would be twitching out of control - well in fact he would have twitched all the way out of the doors by now, had he not done this already at the first real signs of 'bare bones' appearing...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
