Reading the above comments underlines to me how good our squad is - the best I have known in my lifetime. Westwood, Lees, Loovens, Lee, Abdi, Bannan, Hutchinson, Hooper, Rhodes, Fernando - 10 players (I may have missed some...) all got honourable mentions. Depth, quality, ruthlessness. 5 were new under Carlos/Chansiri; 5 from before, in the Gray/Mandaric/Jones era. We have a whole host of others who have real qualities to bring to bear as well - Reach, Hunt, Pudil, Winnall, Fletcher, Wallace, Boyd for example.
Combined with that, I believe Carlos has what it takes - some don't, I appreciate that but for me he's just what we need. I think he's hungry, determined, steely, calculating, and has a great rapport with the players, staff and majority of fans. Chansiri seems to have given him pretty much everything he has asked for; I think more reassurances were given to Carlos this year, re money to spend and type of players we'd be looking to bring in. We have to bring in a quality centre half - Carlos has admitted as much. Do that and we will have great options all over the pitch.
We have to do it this year. A blinding start would be ideal. Put the Carlos tactics stuff to bed, build some real confidence and belief in the whole fan base, then take it from there averaging 2-2.1pts per game.
Party time. Cannot wait for it all to kick off - only two and a half weeks away!!
