Port are back-filling their list with multiple players who, at one time in their careers, produced outstanding football.
If a few of those players can recapture form, then it should deliver an uplifting surge to their results in 2018.
In a very even 18 team competition, that freakish surge in performance, can be the thing that lifts a team to a premiership.
So I largely admire their strategy.
Trengove is perhaps a step too far for my tastes, but I like the others.
I do query their tall stocks a bit…Trengrove gone, and Austin was tall I think?..If the talls fail them next year, I wonder if they come harder for Francis.
