Looking at this year in isolation, I am as disappointed as anyone that we have only had one debut for the year, however I think the club had an obligation to give the returning players a good crack though, even if it may have compromised our season or player development a tad.
From a pure football perspective we have made bad team selections and bad pick ups (some of the returning players would probably not been on a list this year if they had not been banned).
But from a humanity, real-life perspective I can live with a club that tries to right its wrongs. There is more to life than football for all involved.
This year has exceeded my expectations, its been the best year since 2012, we have objectively improved on 2015 and 2016 and I believe we will continue to improve in 2018.
