Love how he was closing game out at their corner flag rather than pinned in our own half. The lad always looks to get on the ball and get forward. I think if we had a more solid team he’d flourish.

Think its LWB or nothing for him. 

 

4 at the back and i dont think he's defensively good enough to play LB. 

 

3/5 at the back and less reliance on his defence, more license to get forward and i think he really did well today.

Thought he started poorly but gradually improved.

 

Wouid rather Reach on that side though.

It's a tricky one. I thought Penney grew into the game. 

Overall though Reach should really have the left hand slot nailed down. 

But much as i have always stuck up for him, I did find myself exhaling deeply and muttering a bit today about some of Reachs' dangly leg tackling.

Agreed, but I just think Reach just constantly turns into trouble on the right. Instinctively, he is half a second faster with his decision making and delivery from the left.

Oh , I agree. I fully prefer him on the left.

Just not sure about the defensive responsibility.

no, me neither, but then I'm not convinced by Penney defensively.

 

I'd still rather play 4-4-2 with Reach left and Harris right.

Much prefer Reach in that position right now, but I do get the sense there may be more to come from Penney.  Bearing in mind we’re unlikely to see Reach next season then would like to see Penney continue to be involved and offered a new contract.

There is absolutely no chance Reach will be here next season. We can’t offer him an improved contract. A championship team will based on him being a free agent and the highlights reel that his agent will send out. IMO  it’s time to give Penney an extended run in the team and try and convince him to resign if he does well.

He did some decent stuff but also looks miles off in some situations, good job he had Uroghide behind him or he would have got slaughtered, Sinclair would have ripped him to bits

Given the covid and current financial situations, while I agree Reach is likely a little better, but is also earning probably 5 times more at least.

 

Pending the new contract offerings to Reach and Penney (if one is offered), personally I'd rather we lined up next season with Penney in the team and another step towards sustainable bank accounts.

Reach is poor off the ball and has a wide turning circle. Too easy to beat.

I'm going against the grain here - but ultimately I think he has a position in centre midfield.    Only just good enough defensively, but has a sweet foot.    He also doesn't have to rush his game.

 

I know i've just agreed with Jos saying this, but honestly I think it's his best position.

 

 


You think you are having a bad day?   Look what this ship captain did!
