The view from the Scotsman. Why has no one else noticed this?
Such is the fickleness of all football fans - both from those on the terraces and those in media positions - opinion has already changed regarding Hamilton’s position after four games. The Accies were widely tipped to be relegated. But seven points and eight goals later, Martin Canning’s men look stronger than a handful of sides despite doing little in the way of recruitment. They have depth in defence which allows the side to play a back three or back four, while the midfield is as competitive as ever.The only position which perhaps hasn’t been consolidated or strengthened is striker. Despite the eight goals Alex D’Acol hasn’t been replaced. He wasn’t a regular goalscorer but acted as a competent focal point, an out-ball when pressure increased. Rakish Bingham does a fine job offering a threat in behind and running the channels but isn’t as slick with his back to goal. Find a striker who can do that job, while adding seven or eight goals and Hamilton will be a strong proposition.
