The losing and the perception that the staff won't be here next year go hand-in-hand.
Hopefully the staff moves will help right the ship. Wish there had been a couple more of those (Key, Thacker). It's going to be an interesting season.

I don't think the OL cupboard was exactly bare, but no, it wasn't anything to write home about. The best one we had transferred out.
But that doesn't negate the fact that what we had was neither augmented through recruiting nor coached up. In fact, I'd have to say from the looks of it, it was...
