The key is a decent keeper and 2 solid quality CM's and they should be in place for game 1. They aren't and that annoys me because we've had the time and certainly the money
Based on that then, the team will have confidence in Dibble as I read somewhere he kept 3 clean sheets in pre season games. As for hoofing it, lots of people wanted to retain Kelleher, Vassell and Pearson who were hoofball masters.
Despite injuries, this is a new era with proper manager, coaches and off field professionalism.
Give the team a chance before writing them off before a ball has been kicked in anger.
