I can ask him at media day, but what's the point? The answer is obvious already:

 

We shored up goalkeeping and right back. We brought back Sims. Valot coming back is like a new player. We feel our USL guys are ready to step up and contribute. And... drumroll...

 

We need to find "right player" at the "right time".

 

Rinse, repeat.

Is it inappropriate to point out the specific players he said we would need (especially a #9) and to ask why the other RB teams seem to have no difficulty finding players that fit the same system?

"We fell that the combination of Brian White, Tom Barlow, and Mathias Jorgensen is ready to step up and move to the next level. We spent a lot of money on Jorgensen last year and feel that his year with RB2 not only taught him our system, but prepared him for a bigger role."

 

There really is no point.

I wonder if Thelwell will be there. I'd guess not, if he hasn't officially started work yet.

Your hypothetical talking points give Hamlett too much credit! But I agree, it's really easy to explain the situation away with management speak even if everybody knows "relying on internal growth" won't take us all the way. The issue isn't media not asking questions, it's RB not spending and not caring about performance and attendance deteriorating.
