I’d actually go as far to say the players aren’t too bad, they’re just being completely mismanaged .
Beestin and Pugh/Wood in CM isn’t bad at all. Perry is good enough, providing you play him in a role which actually suits his game. Upfront is questionable but even playing Scrimshaw with Jarvis would get a hell of a lot more out of him than we got today, he’s got enough about him to score at this level.
Bunn wide right isn’t terrible. Wilson is talented as we’ve seen more than a few glimpses from him to suggest he’s got something about him.
Green has started awful but showed last season he’s fairly decent. Hippolyte I’ve never been a fan of but started this season quite well.
Taft, Davis and Manny are fairly good CB’s. This 3 or 5 at the back, whichever way you look at it doesn’t really work. Started off pretty solid but it’s all gone to shit.
I’m not saying these are world beaters by any means but they’re good enough to finish lower mid table.
Put it this way, there is talent within the players at the club…it’s just they’re being completely hamstrung by a clueless management team.
That shambles today was one of the most baffling line ups I’ve ever had the displeasure of witnessing.
Not going to lie, I was speechless. Perry as a defensive midfielder tracking Jay despite being a ball playing midfielder ?
Beestin benched. Millen at RB didn’t even look fit, fair enough give him 20 minutes or something at the end but he looked absolutely knackered at around the 25 minute mark, he was understandably run ragged.
Rowe fish out of water at CB and Jarvis overlooked for a rust Harry Bunn and even further over looked when O’Neil came on and believe you me, I’ve mentioned Matt Bailey as the worst targetman I’ve seen in an iron shirt and what I’ve seen of O’Neil, if he doesn’t sort himself out he’ll be battling him for that spot.
As I said above, the players are a mile away from being a top unit in this league but they do have more talent than what they’re being allowed to show.
