Last one for me...booze is kicking in now 🤣
I’ve concluded every left footed player we’ve recruited is shit. Right footed ones are fine. Taft, Greenidge, Gordon, mascoll, comley, all wank.

Well if he’s right footed he’s even worse than I thought he was.

He looks like in a better team he’d be ok. Our only outlet at times. Only one who can win a header. But ultimately suffers from an inability to cross the ball. Which means unless he’s in behind he’s cutting back in and slowing the game down.
That's where are right now. We have a few who look like they'd be okay in a better side and that hopefully means there's room for improvement here.

Doyle can score given service, but he's getting none. Delf can link if the players around him make the right runs, but they're not. Comley can win the ball and would be okay if the players around him would do the creative work, but they're not doing. etc etc

We either have a group of lads who can all develop together into a mid-table team, or we have a load of pieces from different jigsaws that will never fit together not matter how many times we try and smash them into place. Hopefully the former.
I thought Doyle had a poor game and should have been replaced instead of Crawford who was having a greater impact.

Doyle isn't playing well. We were warned about him by previous clubs' fans when he showed up. Either he scores, or you wish he wasn't on the pitch. At the minute he is under immense pressure. He's "the man" in this fairly crap squad and he's not seeing the ball. So when he does have a chance he snatches at it, because they're hen's teeth. He goes roaming to get the ball and because he's not got great all round game he loses it a lot, which puts him under more pressure. Then again he has a bumper 3 year contract to sit on, so maybe he's not that fussed :conf:

There is no point at all having Doyle starting now. I understand why he's stayed in until now in the hope that things will turn, but it's not happening. He needs to be a sub while we scrap it out and and sort the midfield. Defence has improved, so.sirt the midfield. If chances are being created and missed, bring him back. Until then he's a passenger. And that's not meant to scapegoat him, just pragmatism.

Which is, of course, still a huge improvement on the rest of the bunch who lack the ability to either cross, run in behind or cut in.
