At the moment we have 3 guys on the list who we can say with some certainty could hold down a senior small/running defender role in 3 years time. 1 of them will ideally transition to the midfield.
Bags and DEA are not long term propositions.
In my mind we need to find at least another two, probably 3 more. One to pension of bags and release McGrath to the middle, another to be part of the rotation off the bench and another in the magoos who can come in and play a role.
We have to start working on resolving this list issue now and I think bringing in McVeigh will just delay this process. We have to findout about Redman and Morgan or we have to test whoever we bring in.
