His shot stopping isn't good, its below average, he lets too many in that should be saved.  I agree his kicking is generally decent, he occasionally picks out a great pass, my problem is I suspect that's the reason IE signed him. 

The defeat at Hartlepool is irrelevant, if he'd had a blinder in that game and we won 1-0 he still isn't good enough for league one, he is below average on communication, stature, commanding his box, catching crosses and shot stopping.  I don't expect a league one keeper to be above average on all those, but when a manager says we are aiming for promotion I'd expect the keeper to be at least average on most  of them.

Agree to disagree cos as usual you are incorrect.

Me to. He was decent at beginning of season but he’s going through a bad spell with rest of team. He can turn it around. Let’s hope Dapo, MJ, John, Baka, Johnston, Aimson and Delf improve to, as they have equally been as bad over this bad patch. In Evert we trust and he will get us playing again. Hopefully new additions will kick start second half of season for us.

Scratching my head as to why we would pay a fee for this player when there will be better players going for nothing.

Obviously paying a fee means it would be a minimum 18 month contract. Never thought i would write these words.....poor mans Kachunga

All based on absolutely nothing.

Utter nonsense.

Doyle gone. Need someone else to fix on now.

Dixon is not our biggest problem  IMHO. The defence in front of him needs sorting surely everyone agrees on that. Being judged very unfairly. Every single player at moment has room for improvement and some a lot more than Dixon. Getting blasted for that first goal ok but their guy waltzed through our 'defence'

Just had a quick look on a  Lion's forum, some right sarcy twats on there, anyway, a couple of posters reckon Bodvarsson could be on around 8K a week there.

Crazy money for an ordinary level of player.

I can't comment on this guy, never knowingly seen him play. But £8k pw is £416,000pa BASIC. It's no wonder clubs are struggling if they have, say, 20 on that sort of sum at 2nd division level.

I guess chasing the dream costs.

Just my opinion on watching him play, doesn't mean I'm right.  If you think he's good enough for us I respect that.  Just my take on it, nothing more.  Hopefully you're right and I'm talking nonsense.

It is crazy money but some ex players on talk shite are saying some players deserve £500,000 per week - Mo Salah for one

I can't see us playing two up front but I wouldn't describe Evatt as a one up front man. He played with two up front at Barrow and started with two up front here.

I stand corrected, I thought IE wouldn't budge from 1 up front evidenced from games in 2021, but he changed it today.  And what a difference, changed the whole outlook of the game, long may it continue.  Well played Baka, pleased for him to be in his natural position and if the Millwall lad is an alternative, given Baka's injury record, bring it on.

Yes, I was surprised to see the way we set up. But fair play to IE for trying something different and it worked. We looked more resolute and balanced

I'm told that we shouldn't read anything into that

Has there been anything official that they've accepted our bid?

I know Evatt said he'd heard nowt, which suggests they're considering it, maybe over the weekend.

Until that's happened and things are moving, he's their player and it's no surprise they've played him.

I’ve been saying we should go with that formation for weeks, in fairness Evatt probably has thought the same but didn’t have the confidence in the personnel available to charge formation.
