With the season kicking-off this weekend, despite positive actions seemingly being made at PFC this summer, we are still some players short.
I know, I know, we cannot 'splash the cash' left, right and centre - and nor have I wanted this, or would I like to see it now - but we still need another 3 players, at least...
I think we know better than most what it is like to 'struggle' through a season and at the moment, despite improvements, plenty of the signs are pointing towards 'minimal' numbers being on the agenda again this season.
Having failed to bring in any players for the past 3-4-weeks now it would 'seem' unlikely that the 'trio of players' that Steve Cotterill said 'were close' to arriving, over a week ago now, will arrive?
Do not get me wrong, as said, I have been pleasantly surprised by the actions of CSI and think that the signings that we have made are decent ones but we are just a suspension and/or injury of two away from hearing the words 'crisis' once more...
A signing this week would make a difference, more than one the world of difference although a kind of 'déjà vu' feeling seems to be around in some ways.
Once more I say 'do not get me wrong', it is possible that we could pull off these deals, and I have little doubt that the club is working around the clock to make deals - that are good for PFC - happen, but the more days that tick away this week the harder it is to think we will go to Boro with anything other than what we currently have?
I hope that I can be shot down over the next couple of days and at least one arrival comes in, if not more, but I have to 'call it as I see it' personally really, do I not?
Do not take this piece as a 'moan and groan' too much, I do think that I try to be as balanced on the issues in hand as I can to be fair.
What I know is we must, no two ways about it, bring in at least 3 more players by the end of the month, when the transfer window - permanent signing one - slams shut until the New Year...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
