    Got a trial down at Leyton Orient – hope it works out.

    Ridiculous release that sums this organisation up.

    I think they’ll take him. Decent player.

    Gutsy but can’t pass for toffee. Is he any better than young Gallimore ?

    Behind youngsters Gallimore, Cribb, Moore-Billam from what I’ve seen plus any senior CMs we have when the season starts so unlikely to get game time IMO. Amazed we kept Shrimpton for the same reason.

    Gallimore is better IMO, plus he’s got the makings of a centre back about him, certainly more versatile.

    I really rated him, similar box to box combative midfielder like Ryan Yates (not as good I know) .
    Loves a tackle and good for the odd goal…. Maybe not the complete package but certainly good enough for this squad.
    Stupid, stupid decision to let him go IMO

    Absolute work horse but not sure what people really saw in him. Technically he was sub par, decision making was dodgy at times and as mentioned above, his passing was poor.

    I’d take Gallimore over him for sure. Cribb has a lot more about him and Moore-Billam has a little bit of everything including decent physicality like Gallimore.

    Whitehouse is impressing on trial as well. Pugh is ok if he’s used strictly as a break up player who keeps it very simple, any thing other than that and he’ll struggle.

    Pugh has fantastic energy but for the reasons above, I wouldn’t class him as a box to box midfielder as he’s too limited.

    Agree re: Gallimore, but let’s face it, fair assessment of any young player has been virtually impossible given the last two seasons, débâcles.

    Good luck to Tom.

    Very good player, and if you watched his game he was always getting frustrated when he had the ball as nobody around him was showing for the ball. The best passer I have seen in my lifetime is Glenn Hoddle even he can’t pass effectively if there is nobody to pass to.

    If I were a league 2 Manager I would snap him up in heartbeat, put him in a decent side and watch him flourish.

    It is a very good point, Pat, our movement off the ball has been wretched for a very long time.
    This is one area where KH has a reputation for producing real quality in his sides.
    Unless the horrendous Iron setup really has cooked his goose once and for all – I do anticipate a mega improvement in this part of our play, provided of course, we have adequate quality to be able to adjust to this division.

    You’d take Gallimore over Pugh? Based on what… what has Gallimore shown?

    What has Cribb shown? Never saw him have a game better than a 6/10!

    As we have been demonstrating for the last 3 seasons it is really difficult for any player to look decent in a really shite team. When teams don’t make any runs it’s easy for good players to be caught in possession. When teams make the wrong runs it is easy for good players to hit stray passes.

    That is why in a shite team we tend to only see maximum effort as a positive and perceived lack of effort as a negative.

    Probably why Rory was the only credible candidate for player of the season.

    We will never know how good Pugh would be in a team that actually can play a bit of football. I hope he gets that opportunity somewhere else.

    Same goes for Cribb, Gallimore, Shrimpton and pretty much the whole set of players but particularly the youngsters. If we can make the massive leap in quality from embarrassingly shite to barely competent as a team then we will see which of these youngsters can play and which can’t.

    PUGH is a energetic player with good work rate. His decision making with the ball is questionable at best, but that might have something to do with the lack of cohesive tactics at Scunthorpe.

    Could do a job in a Football League team.

    Is he still on trial?
    Did they sign him?
