Usual early season Accies. Same since 2003, except when Alex Neil was in charge. Start of season, and we seem to have no idea who our best XI are.
At the moment, I have no confidence in any of our central defenders. We’re trying to find out who should partner Easton, when (if?) he’s fit again, and it says it all that Want remains the front runner. Midfield looks better than I hoped, and I’m very hopeful for a front line built around Moyo. Going through the team, either Fulton gets better fast, or we need another keeper; my current impression is our full backs are fine (but no cover); Gogic is a big miss, and there’s a lot resting on Martin’s shoulders this season; some decent creative options, albeit Lewis Smith didn’t have a great day today, but Temps is our ace-in-the-hole.
A draw today would have been a decent result, lifting us to 8th, and for a long time we looked like getting it. But in the end we got what we deserved. We were all over the place at the back, and not clinical enough up front.
We’re far from certs to go down. Plenty of other poor teams. But a lot of improvement needed. Our get-out-of-jail card may be whether the season is viable: empty stadiums, games postponed already, pandemic conditions continuing. Still all seems unreal.
