We Won't Have a Better Chance


WAGGA MOON



Well here is another season almost upon us and we will never have a better chance to get out of this jumpers-for-goalposts league than this season.

The teams we are competing with look strictly average and it has to be said the squad looks infinitely better than last season. It looks like it has a lot more height, pace and power than in previous seasons and a nice blend of youth and experience. Probably four players kept on from last season who we do not need, ie Xavi, Anderson, Catterick and Kitching and it would have been nice if Andrew Taylor and Dimi Konstantopoulos had been given places in the squad to make us even stronger. That being said, our owner has done very well to get the players in the squad that we have got. Mr Singh is doing s wonderful job and has turned the club around in a short space of time.

The ground is looking in good shape again and the new strip looks very smart and is a change from the usual stripes. Maybe this will bring some better luck and see us pushing for a top seven place. There does not appear to be an outstanding team to worry us and I am sure some of our new signings will turn out to be among the top players in this league. And we have Liam Noble and Luke Williams from last season to bring their talent to the team.

Manager Craig Hignett looks to have strengthened our midfield so much that he is now spoilt for choice. After looking for a midfield destroyer for years he has landed Gus Mafuta who looks ideally suited for the role. After promotion last year with Salford, who would bet against him doing it again this year with Pools? I for one can't wait to see him bossing the midfield. With four strikers all looking to add goals from the off and with the two Lukes, Molyneux and Williams ready to step in, realistically we should not be short of goals. Our new keeper looks very capable and is certainly no worse than Scott Loach, Although it would be nice to have Dimi in competition for a place between the sticks.

The number of season tickets taken up is very encouraging and in response to the quality of the new arrivals at The Vic this summer. With the games coming thick and fast in the first few months of the season a good start to the season is essential, and once you get the momentum who knows where it can take us.

Put it this way: if we don't finish in at least the top seven I will be very surprised and disappointed.

Come on you Pools.
