How is Connor Sammon anywhere near the Ireland squad?
at 18:05 29 Oct 2014

I thought I knew a reasonable amount about football and was able to give
an objective view of a player. I'm starting to doubt myself now!

Post script - a down arrow from Ipswichcrazy - a real accopade at last!

Connor Sammon and Frank Nouble
at 22:09 25 Oct 2014

I rate neither particularly highly but based on the three performances I have seen from Sammon his control and aerial ability are.....well.......a real match for Frank's! In fact, he runs around alot, works incredibly hard, falls over himself and once in a while does something vaguel impressive......just like Frank. Could someone enlighten me as to what the big difference is between the two as I am struggling to really see too muchfor myself.

Don't like Warnock stressing the 28 day recall clause so much
at 20:46 2 Oct 2014

The loan has already reaped some benefit with his goal but to lose Williams after just one month would feel cruel. Kind of like Bullseye or 321 with the this is what you could have had feeling. Suppose we need to hope Palace do well and don't need the boy back anytime soon.

Very harsh on Tommy.

Very harsh indeed. Hyam hard done by too. Skuse really doesn't deserve a place over Luke. Skuse needs a very good game and Chambers must perform well too!

O'Hara now a free agent. Will Mick be tempted?
at 19:51 4 Sep 2014

O'Hara left Wolves and now a free agent Mick signed him for big money and paid him a hefty wedge. Not for me, heard too much about him being a big time Charlie but managers often display a tendency of going back to players they know don't they?

Mings possibly a Premier League target!
at 21:26 1 Sep 2014

How revealing. I don't really care what kind of fee was or was not offered. Just the fact that Warnock was considering the lad (if true) is quite illuminating to me. Let's not forget, there are a fair few on here who don't think he is League 1 standard, let alone Premier League. He is one for the future and is learning his trade. His positional sense willvome with more games. Good spot fron non league by Mick!

The corner routine. Must have been practising that all week I guess!
at 21:13 30 Aug 2014

We had almost a dozen corners today and many of the saw two Town players tapping it a yard or two before crossing. Didn't seem to work too well though! Also, in the first half we had free kick about 25 yards out in what looked like a good shooting position but we faffed, tried to change the angle with a training ground routine. Someone tell me why no shot on goal? Before anyone says, I'm not being negative, it was a good second half performance with plenty of positive displays.

Impressed with Bishop today (and Bru was ok too)
at 20:14 30 Aug 2014

Bishop gave us something we have lacked today. He put his foot on the ball, lifted his head and carried the ball forwards 20 or 30 yards a couple of times. He also had a pop at goal too. I like what I saw. Bru had some forward intent too. A couple of time as he received the ball he feinted and let it run past him to escape his man, relieving the pressure. I wonder whatMick will dowhen Skuse is fit? Liked what I saw from Henshall and both Mings and Tabb desrerve credit too. Tabb looked comfortable in the centre of midfield during the last 25, distributing the ball well. The Didsy news is a blow if he goes but that kind of cash is (almost) irresistible and he will want to go. Nevertheless, there were lots of postives from the 2nd half today.

Defensive solidity? That's what is really worrying me!
at 15:53 23 Aug 2014

Sounds odd. Like so many, I can see the glaring lack of creativity in the team. Chambers (and I like him) offers little going forward. We have lost some forward creativity from Cressy. Hyam, Skuse and Tabb don't bring any and Anderson is too prone to a punt into the box or a cut inside and lay the ball off as soon as possible. Now, having said this, we should be defensively quite solid shouldn't we? We aren't at the moment. We are almost as open to the quick counter as we were at times under Jewell. The Skuse and Hyam combo are not protecting the back line and we look vulnerable.The whole balance of the midfield is wrong and needs sorting. To add to this Gerken does not command his area. It seems perverse I know but with our defensive midfield we are still looking so vulnerable!,

Hope Bialkowski starts at Crawley
at 17:15 10 Aug 2014

Have a feeling Gerken might find himself under pressure quite soon like Loach last season. That was a poor error yesterday (credit to him for the recovery though) which if it were punished would have changed the game totally. Don't reckon Bart is here simply to warm the bench and Gerken knows it.

Anyone else see Hunt being used as cover at left back?
at 20:48 3 Jul 2014

Mings will start the season and he deserves his chance. However, I think Mick's decision to offer Hunt the year deal might be to have him as cover all the way down the left side of the pitch. Otherwise, when he has brought Henshall and Stewart to the party and he already has Anderson (who can certainly play on the left) and Tabb too, the Hunt contract looks a bit like overkill with so many players potentially fighting for the same spot. Any thoughts?

Crawley sell Drury for £100,000 to Luton!
at 19:00 30 Jun 2014

Jesus - didn't we let him go for nowt! When was the last time we actually sold anyone for any cash. Wickham is the last one I can think of! All I can remember since are players running their contract down or even worse, Town effectively paying players to leave. Yet, a tiny club like Crawley can manage to get 100K for a player that we didn't want!

On another note, hopefully with Mick not signing both Green & Richardson this indicates he anticipates picking up better some time soon.

Can't say the thought of Premier League 30 somethings excites me too much.
at 19:00 23 May 2014

No doubting Koren has (had) quality but he is 34 in the Autumn. Bowyer was celebrated by some on here as just what we needed and what a complete waste he was. Ingimarsson, Higginbotham, Kennedy - all well past it and complete wastes of time. The thought of Etherington would fill me with terror. Players with problems like that are a no-no. It's better to go for the younger players with something to prove in my opinion. To sign oldies looking for a decent(ish) final contract smacks of Paul Jewell and I hope Mick doesn't go too far down that route if at all.

Mullet - Do you want Wigan to win?
at 20:28 12 May 2014

I know you dislike Redknapp (so do I) but Wigan is such a convenient game for us northern fans, Derby isn't too far either. Does your dislike of QPR run so deep you are willing to sacrifice one of those games next year? Being a selfish sort, I'll overlook QPR's FFP infractions and Harry's dubious dealings in favour of a game at Derby or Wigan for Town!

Anyone seen this about Shola Ameobi linking him to a possible free move to Town? Surely lazy journalism re-hashing his potential move years ago under Jim? Thought he was older than 31.

Thoughts?

Sorry if already discussed elsewhere!
