5/10. Corica is a professional football coach who has been 2IC for a while. McFlynn has been involved in player recruitment for a while. They don’t get a free kick just because Arnie left . SJD was a foolish gamble given everything they knew of him. Even when fit, he’s incredibly wary of further injury and most often ineffectual. De Silva has had a number of seasons failing to live up to his early promise, so another gamble. Jop is a bog average slow player, when we needed a Jordy type to play off an ageing Wilkinson. Caceres seemed like a ridiculously superfluous , average player acquisition at the time. He hasn’t yet debunked that first impression. The short time he has been on the pitch has been unimpressive.
Austin has speed and may actually play himself into some form/touch…too early. Reza, again too early.
The number of injuries we’ve had also reflects on the quality of Clarke’s replacements.
