All credit to Little for acting so swiftly. Common sense tells you that totally overhauling a team in a matter of days is a recipe for disaster, but in our circumstances all bets are off. If Little hadn't taken the cleaver to his team we would have sunk without trace. Maybe we still will, but at least there's an element of doubt now.
Of course, the team will take time to gel, but at least when Little promised to rearrange the squad he was true to his word. Usually when a player looks to change a squad around in a one month window he brings in three players or so. Little certainly can't be accused of not committing to his task.
