You list 6 players there who "aren't good enough". All pretty much regulars in the squad.
Why do you then think we have "been pretty average overall" ?
If over a third of our regular squad isn't good enough surely we are punching at or even above our weight ?
Not having a go at you by the way, I mostly agree, but our fans expectations sometimes astounds me.
We aren't massive, sleeping giants, a big club or even promotion contenders. We are an average Championship squad with an outside chance of making the playoffs.
Much like 20 or so other teams in this division.
