Haha, tough injury to comeback from, fairplay to him

Yeh I agree, I don’t think anyone could have predicted how well he’s done this season.

Close run thing between him, Charles and Santos for most influential player so far

All banter mate.

I’m going to get in there first on the new keeper;

- He’s no Trafford 

- Doesn’t do anything spectacular. 

- It’s Evatt’s blindspot 

- Why have we gone for another youngster 

- What is Gilkes actually doing with these keepers

- Surely we should have just developed Hutchinson/Litherland 


This hasn’t aged well.

I’ve backed Sheehan all the way, I was delighted when we signed him.

anyone can get injured.

Me too.

Then proceeded to frustrate the hell out of me.

Showing class now though, in a set up that helps him.

Not sure he'll ever be able to tackle a good dinner, but it's horses for courses. Get the balance right and allow him to do what he does best.

On the subject, and there not yet being a winter window thread ... where should we be looking to strengthen in the next window ... which is only 7 weeks ahead.

We seem to have 2 players per position. Few are duck eggs but how many are shoo-ins if we did go up ?

Clearly, whatever the long term prognosis, we are one successful forward short. Vic doesn't fit our current way of playing. He certainly puts in a shift, no complaints on effort, but he's not the answer as a permanent starter for me.

Dan, bless him. 'nuff said. 

Bod. He has the quality, but there has to be a reason he only gets cameo's.

Mendez-Gomez, well who knows ?

Of course successful strikers aren't sitting on tree branches waiting to be selected by an, admittedly decent, 3rd tier club. It may be loans from Premier or Championship clubs. Any ideas ?

Elsewhere, we are, for the level well enough set. But I'd hope we're looking at Ashworth & Mahgoma's situations and signing them on permanent deals.

Wing-backs, because we only have two 

Unfortunately, I don't think there's any prospect of us signing Maghoma permanently as long as we're in the third tier

I think mathieson is seen as a wing back??

I dunno how this is measured but Vic was and I believe is top of the pressing stats

So, while we are winning I just dont see any reason why Evatt wont start him

Be nice to add some goals, mind, but its a tough sell to get a prem club to let their promising striker drop 2 leagues to be sub and, while we are winning, for evatt to change the game plan

I just dont see it
