The influence of legends on the current team.

Not denying, and never have, Hirst's ability and what he did for our club. Just remember seeing him in The Night Owl on many a Friday and Saturday night. My comment was aimed at being tongue in cheek. 

It was a totally different time but these days how are we supposed to find the next Hirst if we're not prepared to throw a 19 year old up front and give him enough games to establish himself through a couple of early doors lean periods. 

Teams don't take that gamble anymore. Clubs don't go watching school games (do schools even play on Saturday mornings anymore?) To unearth the next talent. They hold academy trials instead.

For some a legend, let's just say for some of us most definitely not, but 5 years ago today (thanks to Dunsby Owl on Twitter) the biggest failure vis a vis resources given finally left the Club 

And may he never return 

Let it go Kev

Can’t disagree.
