Hatters matters... a word from the editor
WELCOME back, Mick.
It’s the big man’s fourth stint at the club, by our reckoning – but who’s counting?
Harford’s arrival offers plenty of cause for initial optimism but we’ve got to be realistic, too.
He’s got a tiny squad and with the Football League tying his hands behind his back he’ll have his work cut out.
As well as playing for Hatters, Mick is fondly remembered for putting through his own net at the Kenny end while with Derby in 1991.
His new assistant Warren Neill went one better with QPR in the mid ’80s. He banged in OGs in consecutive seasons at Kenilworth Road – each the only goal of the game!
With that in mind, let’s hope the appointment of Mick and Warren won’t prove to be a sentimental own goal, then. Hopefully the 2020 consortium, who had a say in the managerial changes, will soon be installed as new owners by the administrators and we can look to the future with a lot more optimism.
But optimism was in short supply on the final whistle at Dean Court on Tuesday. How gutted were you after we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, this time at Bournemouth? I think we’ve been kicked in the teeth so many times now, you become immune to LTFC-inflicted pain.
