The B-Ark / Re: MIDFIELD?
« on: July 24, 2009, 02:25:27 PM »
I thought Sleath was excellent v Lincoln. He and Camm were everywhere in the middle, a real high energy performance. Again at Town in the first half he was class. Couldn't get last night so can't comment.
As regards the other midfielders I wasn't surprised that Askham hasn't been signed. He's a very talented lad, as you can see from the YouTube clips, and had a decent performance against Lincoln but against Town he didn't seem to have any sense of position and defensively he might as well not have been there. Not the type of player that H&S seem to be looking for. I think Kennedy on he other hand seems to fit the bill and has got to be worth a shout. Unless that is they have better up there sleeves?
What was Weedon like?

   Yes had just got back from Cranwell after another gruelling hard session !!
   but tells me he is loving every minute of it................ ;D

Good to hear about the "gruelling hard session !!". Looks like we'll have a super fit squad this season. IMO that was one of the problems last season. If you check out the "goals conceded in the last 15 mins." stat. compared to the rest of the game, it looks like we didn't last the 90 mins. too often. Individually we had the talent but you need to be able to use it for the whole game.

I think a lot of supporters are getting twitchy because we haven't got a full team yet, have they forgotten that 2 seasons ago at this stage we had no players and TT managed to get a whole team that competed comfortably at BSN level. As GHM has said this season is a totally different kettle of fish in the fact that clubs cannot afford the wages being demanded so there are lot's more players available than there normally would be at this stage of the season.

Personally as I put on another thread think that Jamie Stevens could do a good job for us, as could Rowan. However if, as is being suggested by some we are struggling to attract players why would we be letting Rowan and Stevens go to Town? It certainly won't be because we cannot afford them as we could better any offer Town are giving out. I would say it is because the managers have what they think are better options, but it looks like we will have to be patient. If these other players don't come off then surely we can make offers to the likes of Rowan or Stevens even if they have signed for Town. Not many clubs at that level will have them on contracts where we would need to pay, just the usual 7 day approach.

Finally I see that all players mentioned seem to be former players, not sure I get the obsession by a large majority on here with signing former players, they left for a reason. Players like Lee Thompson and Matt O are recent players who second time around where very dissapointing.

You make some very good points w_p, I must admit to a mild dose of twitchiness myself. Got to have faith that H&S will bring in the very best players available that fit their requirements, and if that means waiting then so be it.
The "second time around" situation, as you rightly say, quite often doesn't work out but I think that with them being familiar to us we feel able to pass comment on them. I do though "take an interest in where ex-players turn up" as OCM mentioned at the top of this thread.
To that end I've just looked on the PFA site as ghm mentioned and noticed the following:
Danny Thomas (Macc) available on free transfer
Ben Joyce (Swindon) available on free transfer ( down as CF ? )
David Noble (Bristol C) available on free transfer
Tim Ryan (Darlington) available on free transfer........
(I though that he'd just gone to Chester?)
Alan White (Luton) available on free transfer........
(Don't know if this is right either as he's only just gone there from Darlington)
I presume the players listed on the pfa site are just the fulltime pros? If so then there are going to be plenty without clubs this season.
Not suggesting that we should sign any, just sharing an interest.

He used to own and run The Ruddy Duck off the boardsides (the old aero club). Nice enuf bloke, be interesting to see how he copes with a room full of pissed up football supporters......

"Special opening offer of 50p a pint" as per Qwerty on "The Sports Bar or..." thread...................
Might be to give him some practice!  :)

Top Player Chris Holland.
......someone mentioned Matt Hocking a while ago, does anyone know if he's got a club yet? Was looking at his history since leaving us and he's not done too bad:
Good record at Stevenage for a couple of years... 5th & 6th in Conference
Then Fisher, Conference South
Loaned to Tonbridge, Ryman Premier (seemed to dip a bit)
Next to Southport Feb 07, same time as Chris Holland, but relegated  (They were in freefall then)
Full season for Southport 07/08 and finished 4th in Conf. North
Full season for Gateshead BSN last year & promoted.
I always thought he didn't get quite the credit he deserved for us.
Great goal celebration too ;)

Don't do that OCM, I'm sure most people take a keen interest.
By the way Mark Greaves has definitely gone to Trinity according to BBC Radio Lincs.
