He looks miles off it to me. Really surprised he’s stayed at the club as long as he has.

Palmer’s best performances for us have come at LB

 

You could have played Palmer LB and Osaze RB

 

I’d bet Harris is a bet LB than Penney too

Nobody “got rid” of fox he refused a contract.

He's been poor since he returned to the first team, it's a shame, he's clearly not a left back but there's something else wrong besides that, he plays to me like someone on anti-depressants, his brain is about 30 seconds behind the play, every time he gives the ball away (which is constant) it's like he has no reaction or comprehension.

Yep, it’s the refusal to sign an out and out replacement that has cost us dear....staggering a professional football club at 2nd tier level can’t even pinpoint that as a weak area within two transfer windows.

Definitely not a CH level player unfortunately.


In the 1st half you could almost tell that Rotherham had been encouraged to attack down the right.

 

In reality though, he wouldn’t be playing had the club not been so negligent in bringing in a LB. It’s not really Penney’s fault he’s not up to the standard.

More or less scored the goal and put in some absolutely wicked crosses, at least one of which should have been converted.

 

Dont get me wrong, he was dog poo the first half the same as the rest of them but he was also part of a big improvement in the second half and he kept running.

I guess the question is whether he’s a league one player as we will need a few of those

I'm not a great fan of 3-5-2 but with the fullback options we have we may as well go with it and just play 3 CBs.

 

It also allows us to pack midfield too as we lost that battle last night and for goodness sake play 2 strikers that have made their careers out of doing that instead of makeshift with Paterson & Windass... neither of whom are strikers

Now I get why Jos didn't play him as an out and out left back much opting to play him further up the field

 

The boy simply cannot defend is one of the biggest bottle jobs at the club when putting a foot in

I think the last few weeks have highlighted the issues that various coaches/managers have said he needs to work on over the last few years whilst we have all been calling for him to play.

I think it was fairly obvious why he wasn't playing when people were saying 'Penney should play' 'Why isn't he getting a chance' etc

 

All our managers saw it. In fact they saw it enough to recognise we didnt have a left back and they we're right, we don't. 

 

The problem I have is our situation is now beyond serious, yet he's getting more minutes!

This!! 
 

Add to that he’s one of very few that is forward thinking and runs rather than walks. Balls keep getting passed behind him when he wants it to run onto. Him, Shaw and Urhoghide all look to go forward whenever they receive the ball rather than our more experienced team of walking paced pass it backwards pros.
