True but presumably White, Varney, McCormack and Rogers are your faster players. I don't think the rest of the side is geared towards pace.
Again, with the team as it is I don't think we're particularly credible promotion contenders but then again, we won't go down either which I genuinely thought we would at the start of the summer.
White is pacey, but as a winger i am not sure if he knows how to use it, i would prefer to see him at full back but that isn't going to happen unless Drury gets injured. though from the pre season reports he has been impressive so far.
I wouldn't class Mccormack as quick, but over a few yards he can be sharp, but i dont think he will be here at the start of the season.
Varney and Rodgers i haven't seen enough of too comment, i am just hoping to see Rodgers last more than five minutes that would be a good start.
It would be nice to have some raw pace up front even if not a starter but an option from the bench.
i agree i thought there was a genuine threat of relegation, with the lack of activity now we look like a team who will finish top half but probably not make the play offs, the marquee signings if they arrive will hopefully push us in to the promotion race.
