Having re read my previous post, the distinction I was drawing was between the hysterical criticism about not announcing Hastings, as if the club can control it. They don’t help themselves but it isn’t as simple as those determined to find fault in anything and everything would have it.
As to the signings, huge numbers of the same people determined to find fault in everything worked on the basis that our recruitment was hopeless without 1) acknowledging what gems we had in Partington and Smithies, and 2) waiting to see the full picture. To get hysterical about some hyperbole around one of the signings shows the snowflake find offence in anything view too prevalent in society these days. We will know how well we have recruited when we have finished recruiting.
And the signs are promising. Hastings for Williams would be a big step up.
Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.
