Feel like I'm in The Twilight Zone or summat, we've a striker scoring a goal every other game and folk want him dropped. The mind fucking boggles.

Here we go again. Lad's played a handful of games and in some aspects looks a cut above what we've got. But already no better than league one at best. He's a teenager, with plenty of time to

I'm surprised Thomason is getting criticism. His emergence has to be one of the few successes this season. Playing 9th tier football in October FFS. Not afraid to get stuck in, looks to play it f

Fair point, just trying to make myself feel better...

I think he was a bit unlucky.

To be fair, I haven’t seen the multi-angled replays we’d have in the Prem but I reckon that clearance would’ve given the VAR geezer something to do.

The key to getting up this league for me is to sort out the Sarcevic issue . While being no better or worse than others so far this season  for whatever reason we clearly are getting nowhere near the best from the lad.

There seems to be no logic to having him sitting so deep when he was brought in for his attacking abilities , and he's now starting to cut a frustrated figure who looks good when we have our tails up but for the majority of the time he's too deep to be helping the attacks .

I'm not sure what the full problem is , whether it's a formation unsuited to him , carrying excess weight or basically being played out of position . I was buzzing when we signed him and I hope we find a way of getting the best out of him but at the minute he's achieving no more or no less than the other midfielders and from one of our marquee signings i think we need to start seeing the lad who was tearing up the league last season . 

The one thing with Sarcevic that has been a disappointment compared to expectation is his shooting.  Not once has he let fly and tested the keeper.  Yes he's scored 2 or 3 with average shots, but he doesnt possess a shot from distance, I thought we were buying that but it turns out he joins the list of BW midfielders going back years that cant or wont shoot.

Imo Darcy would bring energy & enthusiasm to our team and he always wants the ball. Anyone who thinks he couldn’t handle Div2 is just talking bollocks imo, he was one of the few shining lights in what was a miserable season for us in Div 1 last term. I can only think theres some sort of personality clash with I.E. I feel for the lad, he deserves a chance this season.

Glad its not just me.  Whenever I thought he got the ball in difficult situations last season he turned it into a positive, I dont know how but he just had a knack of coming out with the ball.  The opposite of most of our team this season, who end up in good positions then turn it into a negative.  A complete mystery how he cant get in this team even when 5 subs are allowed.

There’s definitely a reluctance throughout the team to take on a long shot. Walking it through the defence every time seems to be the way we like to do things.

Obviously you don't rate Darcy, but he would have no problem in this division, I am pretty sure if he the lad had been given as many chances as Crawford & Sarcevic he would have had a better impact on games and results and would have performed better than those 2, taking in to account on games played so far, that doesn't take much considering they have both been shite at best.

It's not that I don't rate him, he had some great moments last season but they were just that, moments. He's never taken a single game by the scruff of the neck and dominated. 

We're too desperate to risk our arses on a 'maybe' like Darcy.

I think Crawford had a spell of shooting outside the box early in the season ,  But after hitting anywhere bar the target we kind of gave up.

He is a young lad, other more experienced players should be bringing him along, he will bring players into play, Sarcevic is supposed to get the game by the scruff of the neck, he's experienced and the captain, looks to me like your looking for any excuse to discard him.

No its not.  Most of our possession was Delaney knocking it wide to Jackson or the new winger.

Right so you watched every ball played and manually totted up the possession?

Or just give him 20 minutes here and there?  A year ago virtually to the day he scored an equaliser at Lincoln from outside the box, I am struggling to think of a better shot in the last 12 months.  But he's too lightweight.

Doyle will end the season with 20 goals

Thats his job done

I agree, It ain’t his fault he’s not got a strike partner yet who compliments him, if we do get that man it’s game on.

If we assume strikers carry on at their current rate, Fonz finishes with 15 if picked, so he could say that's job done too as he's got twice as many assists as Doyle.  I'm not disagreeing with what you say - just that if its just stats, Fonz doesnt get dropped, rightly or wrongly.

In the main the service he's received (or lack of it ) has been abysmal.

Sarcevic has been rubbish. He's been a huge disappointment. 

I don't mind people getting upset at Darcy being sidelined, I'm just not as upset as some about it.

I think Fonz would have bagged a couple.of headers today playing in the centre 

If he’d of played reasonably well last 5 games he’d not of been sat on the bench, can’t complain Evatt has dropped him his recent performances been terrible.
