For months now we've all been asking, when will Andy sign an out and out striker. Before last Christmas and well before Che put in his request for a transfer, we've wondered who would make our 'good' team 'great', who would take us into the play-offs and possibly Division 3. I don't think Andy will or more correctly can, because of two things. Money, and the limited amount available to the club, and who we are.
We rely solely on gate money to make ends meet, and cup money to make a profit and entice better players, we didn't do that last season. Yes! Adrian Pennock was the exception, but he will never be 100% fit, hence his game by game contract. We can attract players from lower levels or players that have previously played in the Conference and want to get back to that level. But, we can't snare two or three name players who will help us make that big step up.
Therefore, all this talk about who'll we sign to score that 20+ a season is wasted. Andy already has his strike force, Budge, Evans and Hatch. Like it or lump it, if these three can score 20 goals each this season, we will be in the play-offs.
