Rory for me had a confidence issue which is always a massive part of a goalkeepers game. Bringing in other keepers continually would not have helped.
I had seen him play for Gainsborough Trinity on loan from Hull city where he was also an England U18 keeper. He was a cut above everybody at National North level.
I did not see any games on I-player last season so had no preconceptions about any player. Of the 3 center halves Davis may have something, Manny though not the best tries hard, Taft however does not impress me at all. Not one of the current defenders is a patch on Jacob Bedeau.
A five man under performing defence does not help any keeper, though commanding ones like Joe Murphy and Matt Gilks were imposing enough to ensure any defence gave 100% all of the time even on an off day.
I will say it again though we lack a strike force of any sort less Loft and Scrimshaw who both graft. Up front is where your defence starts and I am sorry but Jarvis, O Neill and Green ain’t the answer, neither is the kid who got a brace pre-season.
