Myles Kenlock 08:15 - Sep 16 with 2384 viewsitfcjoe

Lots of threads about him over weekend, and he didn't have his best game - by a long way - but interesting stat from Statman on Blue Monday podcast.....

Ever present part of a defence that has conceded 4 goals in 7 games, best defensive start to the season since the mid 80s

We're in League 1 now, the opposition don't punish our errors. I think we've kept those clean sheets despite Myles rather than because of him. He's been really poor.

He's the Aaron Lee Barrett of our defence then at the moment.

Good point. I think most of the criticism of him comes in the attacking side. Play seems to break down when he gets the ball. On Saturday most times he got the ball passed to him he didn’t appear to want or be able to look to go forward with the ball. Since KVY has come in the contrast in their play is immense.

Have a feeling he’ll be ‘rested’ at MK Dons, with Georgiou stepping in.

Nowhere near good enough. Gets an easier ride because he's an academy product. Using the overall defensive unit's stats is a specious way of somehow trying to excuse him.

Had a bit of a shocker at the weekend.

His passing in particular was pretty awful but.....

1. He wins an awful lot in the air
2. The defending at the very end was top drawer - he saved us a point

His defending is also pretty poor. As is his propensity to pass it straight to the opposition or get robbed of the ball in dangerous areas.

is that despite him though?

Chambers covered for him untold times on Saturday, bringing him out of position too much. He switches off and people are getting in behind him and he seemingly has no awareness. Better players in this league will make it count.
Hopefully he will improve but i don't see him improving enough to be good enough for us in this league or above.

not for me, his defensive work aside from the last minute tackle was extremely poor.

Not good enough as a regular,ok as a squad filler I suppose.He has been part of the first team squad for what,4 seasons now?Doesn't look at all comfortable,even at league one level.

I thought defensively he was fine on Saturday, his challenge at the end was a far bigger positives than any of the little negatives combined.

His distribution was very poor though, his right foot is so bad that he is very easy to defend against - show him inside and he then just swings a boot at it and it can, and does, go anywhere.

I wonder if not having someone ahead of him is a big part of the issue, he didn't really improve when Tony G came on, but think he was done for the day by that point as just wasn't going for him.

Him and Tony formed a decent partnership v Wimbledon, be interesting to see how many minutes he gets this week with seemingly no real other option there

I thought as much of the problem with our play was down to the lack of energy from Judge and Edwards, one consequence of that was to leave Kenlock more exposed and with fewer options on the ball.

I've always liked Kenlock's ability to keep going, even when he's struggling and that saving tackle at the end is evidence of that. He's definitely one of our weaker players now but he was being blamed for everything by some fans on Saturday whether it was down to him or now.

Shame as he did well against Shrewsbury and it looked like he's begin to develop the attacking side of his game. I was hopeful he'd be consistent and better so he'd be able to cope as a wing back in a 532 which I think might be imminent but maybe not?

He was covered by others most of the game....at some points he was further up than Judge and seemed unable, or unwilling, to run back into position.

I hate it when players are scapegoated (is that even a word?!) but he really is stealing a living.

I thought Judge did OK. A couple of times he was back covering the defence which shocked me!

I like Myles because, even after a wayward pass or two, he doesn't hide. It can't be easy playing behind Alan Judge in a 4-4-2, given the way Judge is given a free pass to go where he wants. As an opposition manager, I'd just say focus our attacks down the right flank - as Doncaster appeared to do. Remarkably, I think Myles is our third longest serving player behind Skuse and Chambers. I don't think he'll be around if we did return to the Championship but he will be our left back until Nydan gets back to full fitness.

He did fine on Saturday. He's sometimes a bit lose with his technique, but he's more than competent enough as a defender at this level.

The young kid next to me was losing his sh1t at kenlock all game.

I mean really losing it, sometimes fairly but often when kenlock had done nothing wrong.

Judge did OK - therein lies the problem with Judge.

He 'should' be ripping this league up - playing him wide left is wasting any chance of him really being able to perform at this level. He is industrious, as he was again Saturday, but both h and Edwards offered very little in terms of creativity.

I would suggest that if you had watched Lamberts reaction to watching Kenlock on Saturday - your views might be different.

You are mixing up correlation and causation. I would say there is a lot of evidence to suggest that the defence is good despite him rather than because of him.

We are in a lower league, mistakes aren't punished as harshly as previously. It's also not about "having his best game" - he's been consistently poor most matches this season.

Think is unfair to judge him too much when Judge is in from of him as stitches him up by wandering off here there and everywhere.

He wasn't brilliant Saturday but again was not terrible and that last ditch recovery run at the end possibly gained us a point.

He looked better when George came on who actually stuck to the shape of the team meaning he took a player out the game to mark him down that side and allowed Kenlock some more freedom to get forward.

Some Town fans really do need a scapegoat, finding one player to blame for everything is an easy way to watch the game I suppose.
