I have been one of Aidy's strongest supporters on this MB and I am still optimistic (just) about our chances in the playoffs.
Injuries in key positions (Williams/Francis) and the poor form of our frontmen are some of the things that really could not have been planned for although a dip into the loan market was needed IMO. The Duke has proved to be a major disappointment and just enhances the good job that MK did for us. CJ was always going to be a risk injury wise and whilst Priskin has shown improvement Darius has gone the other way. We needed a David Nugent or similar to add to our firepower (what firepower ??)
Well if the worst comes to the worst and we need to plan for another campaign in the CCC then for Aidy's position to remain tenable things need to change. I am talking mainly around our style which, while not as bad as the media have made out, has been found out by the rest of the division. Make no mistakes if we carry on in the CCC with the same set of players playing the same way we will be looking at League 1 by Christmas.
I don't believe that Aidy can do everything on his own and still think we need a replacement for Keith Burkinshaw. It's not all gloom and doom as for this division I think we still have a very capable squad but the likes of the Duke will be a continued drain on the meagre resources that we have available and combined with the stadium costs it's easy to see things starting to spiral out of control.
I've not thrown the towel in yet, but Aidy needs to start learning from his mistakes PDQ or else there will be plenty more recruits to the Watford Boo Boys.
