December & January
Terrible two months there, with the winter break doing us absolutely no favours. Prior to that, two good wins - especially against FC Den Bosch - were a good way to pick ourselves up after a narrow loss to the league leaders, FC Zwolle. But the break sees it all go Pete Tong and we lose games we should where should be gaining points and drop easy points, such as the draw against bottom side SC Veendam.We really have to pick ourselves up and give ourselves a good shake if we want to be promotion playoff candidates.
Remarkably, we're still in with a playoff shout if we can muster up the wins and stop dropping points. I'm not sure how it works though, if all 4 period winners are in the playoffs already, will we go in? Can anyone explain? Thanks.
Only made a couple of signings, due to the fact we're still over the budget and unable to ship any one of our high earners out yet. Frank van Kouwen
arrives on 2 year deal, he will most certainly help to shore up the defensive side I hope. The fans were pleased that his experience was added to the squad as well, always a bonus. Andreas Wittwer
also arrived on a free from Thun, didn't expect to get him as my £0 bid was a cheeky attempt when they want £30,000 for him! Nonetheless, he provides good competition at left back and has reasonable amounts of potential.
