    We've not replaced Wallace

    We haven’t replaced Wallace, Loovens, Hunt, Pudil, Lee or Hooper. None of Lees, Hutch, Bannan or Forestieri look as good as they did. Since the playoff final you can only really make a case for Hector and Reach as players who have actually added anything to that team. The transfer dealings of this club since that day have been a complete disaster. Poor decision after poor decision. What a huge summer coming up.

    Summer Sort Out

    Matias is a funny one. There’s definitely a player there but the injury record is truly horrendous. Seems pointless to persist with him. The reason I’d offer the 2 youngsters deals, is purely about getting some value out of them. Put ourselves in a position where we can command a fee if we decide they won’t cut it for us. As a club, we need to be in the driving seat (to some extent) when it comes to these young lads careers. We develop them as young players and the mentality needs to change to that of a lot of other clubs - if they can’t get in the first team, we get them out on loan as often as possible. Chances are they will hold some value to teams lower than us on the football ladder. Giving players away for nothing is criminally stupid imo. In our current predicament it’s even more ridiculous. Need to start getting these lads out on loan.

    Definitely offer deals to Westwood and Palmer. Palmer came through the youth ranks, so cost us nothing, and we know he’s competent in this league at the very least. Would be criminal to let him go for nothing. For similar reasons I’d offer Nielsen and Preston deals and immediately get them out on loan to lower league teams. Letting players go for nothing is something we’ve done all too often. Needs to change. Particularly when talking about youth products.

    Adam Reach

    A lot of people said the same they are saying about Reach - he doesn’t fit anywhere.

    Fletcher

    No wonder we’re not scoring

    Adam Reach

    Looking at our current bunch, for me he’s the only one who does actually look to get on the ball and drive forward. Certainly the only midfielder we have who will run beyond the striker. Whether he’s the one we want on the ball or not, I’m not so sure. Technically he’s the not the most skilful or creative. Seems to look at his best when a game is stretched and he can carry the ball in space. His stamina is off the charts.

    Adam Reach

    Influencing the game how? I think tbh you expect too much from him. He’s never going to take games by the scruff of the neck and put in Forestieri-like match winning performances. He is what he is. I think a lot of his good work goes unnoticed. A fantastic team player who never leaves a runner and always makes himself available.

    Fletcher

    We’ve played like that all season and Joao’s managed to score 9 goals. An average of 1 every 128 minutes. Fletcher’s got 5. 1 every 296.

    Fletcher

    He’s so overrated by some on here it’s incredible. He just competes for the ball for 90 minutes. That’s it. Doesn’t score or even offer a goal threat. No pace. Very limited ability. For the wage he’s on and the pedigree he has, it’s quite remarkable how ineffective he is.

    Adam Reach

    To be fair he’s carried us at times through a pretty dreadful season. 7 goals is a decent return.

    Adam Reach

    Don’t think he was poor tonight. He did ok. Put in the only real quality cross all night.

    Winnall

    Get him in. Fletcher’s dogger.

    Nando Number Ten

    Ive always been a big fan of Joao. He starts ahead of Fletcher for me. Alongside Nando. Some good chemistry between them imo.

    Nando Number Ten

    Give over. Nando’s on a different level to Fletcher and Joao. He just needs games.

    Still at it I see
