  • Makes you realise just how many players we’ve let go of, doesn’t it! Could easily see Marton Fulop and Shane O’Connor being added to that list in the near future as well. Still, got to be pretty pleased with some of the names we’ve brought in, especially given the fairly minimal expenditure relative to the standard of players.
