How many of our players have improved over the last year?
Apart from Alfie stagnating to some extent everyone else has improved.
Ask the same question of them? Probably all got worse.
How many of our players would improve if they moved to the scum? None.
How many of their players would improve if they came to us. Most.
So on the balance we could take 3 or 4 of the younger players who after an appropriate period of psychological rehabilitation could contribute to our squad.
