Taylor,for me,certainly did enough to be in with a chance of starting Saturday,although looked like he picked up a knock at the end.Wordsworth-reasonably tidy in possesion but just didnt impose himself on the game enough.Loach was reasonably comfortable,although i thought he maybe should have done better with the Garvan free kick,seemed to give him a huge target to aim at and not quick enough accross his line to make the save. Of the younguns,Clarke at CB and Bishop at CM stood out for me. Of the trialists only really the forward from Spurs really impressed me.Both wingers didnt get into the game enough.
Anybody else baffled at Mick's reluctance to use him?He (Hunt) came in,took a pay as you play deal,earned his contract extension and now we barely see him used.Surely he should be a "shoe-in" for a wide left role in either a 4-4-2 or this 4-3-3?Micks apparant preference of Tabb to Hunt makes the situation even stranger.
in the long run? I'm struggling to think of one.The likes of Hourihane(who is actually Plymouths captain and playing his 100th game for them this weekend), Richards,Bowditch,Billy Clarke,Balkestein all were loaned out to get games and that was pretty much it for their Town careers.
I guess at a push Martin when recalled from Charlton by Jewell initially looked promising but i cant't think of any others.
It will be refreshing if this Taylor move does actually pay off in our favour,though im not 100% convinced he will ever become a regular under MM.Time will tell i guess.
Easy targets at the moment but nevermind.The short of it is that after I said they should stop and think where they were 3-4 yrs ago and booing the team during a 2-0 defeat at at Spurs is ridiculous,he replied that they are now an established Premieship side and shouldn't be scrapping for points with the bottom 4 or 5 sides in the league.
