I think we're some way off, quite understandably, from where we could be. I maintain that's what I feel most enthused about. I reckon this gaffer is working towards building a really solid base with a foundation which can be adapted once the components are in place. That was defined in my head with his earliest signings. Old acquaintances perhaps, but all of a certain type of character. This suggest's to me this lad in charge is somewhat 'old school' - I don't reckon we'll get flamboyance and goal of the season montages. I believe, he'll have us solid, workmanlike and delivering the basics.
Having spent last season, tongue in cheek, comparing Gary's team to Liverpool. Not based on the fact he's a Yorkshire lad, I have a personal vision, more 1970's Leeds United. I'm thinking, Bremner, Giles, McQueen, Cherry, Clarke, Jordan and the like. A tad uncompromising. Going on the road, bringing back hard fought points. Winners in the dressing room, different perhaps in their traits to last seasons lads. A different proposition. I already like his composition - it already has options - I like this Gaffers mindset. Interesting to see how this plays out.
