It has been a busy week on the transfer front, down at Kenilworth Road.
We’ve welcomed three new players to the club, Alfie Doughty, Cauley Woodrow and Matt Macey while also saying goodbye to two other, Danny Hylton and Peter Kioso.
In my opinion, our transfer dealings are going well, I believe the squad has been strengthened and I’m optimistic about the coming season, believing we can improve on the 6th place finish of last season.
However, the Sky Sports pundit, Lee Hendrie, doesn’t share that opinion, with the local media source, Luton Today, publishing the following quotes from the former Aston Villa midfielder:
“Luton, I do feel it’s a football club that had their chance.
“I think Jones had some fantastic players there, again it’s all about recruitment.
“I think he will do another super job, I don’t think he’ll be in the top six this time around though.”
Thinking back to last season, I didn’t think we’d finish in the top six and anyone who thought we would I reckon might have overdosed on the pre-season optimism juice.
But football is, as the late Jimmy Greaves often said, “a funny old game” and if I were Nathan Jones I’d paste those quotes on the dressing room wall as motivation, because come May 2023, after what I believe will be a successful season, I’ll certainly be reminding Lee Hendrie exactly what he predicted!
