Thomas injury adds to lack of depth
The two 45-minute XI's that played in last night's defeat to Hibs
showed again how the squad is short on quality with previously untried youngters Ashton, Tanksa, Gislason and Carvill all getting a run out. With Darren Bent, Marcus Bent, Kevin Lisbie (yawn) and now more unfortunately Jerome Thomas
all injured the need to for new blood is even greater but with more signings promised it is still early to be too pessimistic.Djimi Traore is expected to sign
this week from Liverpool, which gives us more options at the back, but surely ID's attention must be turning to the strike-force and the hopelessly threadbare midfield.
Hibs of course have been training for 3 weeks longer than us and played four competitive Inter-Toto games before last night, so the result doesn't worry me in the slightest but Thomas' broken fifth metatarsal and the lack of quality does.
