It's a season to stand still as far as I'm concerned. Losing Mount [ in particular], Tomori and Wilson was always going to give us major problems. They haven't been replaced. I doubt Frank would have done very much with the remainder of the squad, particularly with the injuries we've had.
I'm looking at this season as an opportunity to see which of the Academy players are good enough. I'm sure we are all hoping that there's 3 or 4 who can make the step up.
I'll take a mid table finish unless we suddenly find a way to bring in a number of quality experienced players in January . We're not good enough to challenge with this squad. I don't blame anyone for that and I don't have unrealistic expectations either.
There have been many worse times in my 50 year plus period of being a Rams fan. I still think the 2020/21 season might be worth the wait.
