John Nolan 10:29 - Apr 16 with 2480 viewsBlueyandCrazy

Is coming out of all this pretty well;
- welcomed back into the fold after Lambert sacked
- been able to sit out the decline over the past few weeks
- under contract, so
- one of the few who comes out of all of this Okayish

I was just thinking that. If he thinks the rest of them are half-arsed cowards forever taking the easy option rather than actually stand out he's going to LOVE Nolan.

Depends if he's any better than Jon Nolan who has been frustratingly inconsistent throughout his three years here.

And actually a good footballer to be fair to him. I would be interested to see what he could do in a different environment, as on his day he is tidy and can break the lines. We so rarely get midfield players into the opponents box which Nolan tries to do.

I would've thought he might be one that would get a chance under Cook, they're from a similar neck of the woods. Although I heard recently he was being earmarked for a departure.

Exactly. He’ll have a decent game then he’ll go AWOL for the next 4. For me, and I appreciate this is just opinion, but I feel he’s one of our weaker midfielders. Chips in with the odd goal, can be neat and tidy, but rarely makes a big impression on a game. Hope to be proved wrong.

Hopefully he is one of those who are not getting an option take up! He has been an expensive waste of time along with his mate Nsiala.

That may be unpopular regarding Nsiala but he always looks like a red card waiting .

Nolan (bad tackle - frustration)
Dozzell (pushed over - bad referee)
Jackson (ridiculous challenge that got him banished to U23)
Bishop (two yellows)
Downes (foul language)
Harrop (another stupid tackle - frustration)

None of these were actual footballing red cards (such as denying goal-scoring opportunities or mis-timing tackles. They were all stupid reds caused by frustration. This is something that needs sorting out.

it's not an option on nolan i don't think, he has an extra year whatever.

i think nolan and toto are going to be important next year, not many in the squad have experience of promotion, which will be our goal

Toto has been one of the very few players that have performed overall well under Paul Cook.

He has an error in him, as do most defenders at League 1 level, but he is one a very few to come out of the time under Cook so far with any level of credit.

RE red card nonsense: he's been sent off once for us in 3 years.

JN I think will perform well under Cook. I think Nolan, Downes, Nydam and Lee Evans will be the 4 midfielders Cook will use to fill his preferred 2 anchors in a 4-2-3-1.

He'll be praying Cook doesn't take the "data analysis" thing very seriously, because his numbers are pretty shocking. Bishop and Dozzell are N'golo Kante by comparison.

I think PC has said that he looks forward to working with Nolan .

Certain managers and certain players just gel with each other , so you never know PC might get more out of Nolan than others have

Still one of the worst straight reds I've seen. It wasn't even a tackle, it was a rather good interception.

Just Downes. I’d keep him and then look to build around him. I think Dozzell will stay because of his contract, but for me he’s still not developed into the player I thought he could be. The rest, including Bishop, I’d move on.

Given that he was dropped, sent to the U23's for complaining about being dropped, and then immediately injured when he returned I am not sure he's come out of this season looking any good at all. If we are serious about promotion we need to recruit better than Jon Nolan.

Nolan’s the type of player who’ll shine under Cook. He’ll stamp out his sideways passing instantly and get him playing on the front foot unlike Lambert. It’ll be interesting to see him early next season, he’s got the ability, we’ve just barely seen it do anything in a Town shirt.

Yeah I agree, I thought Cook might be a good manager for Nolan, and he still might of course. Father figure type that could get the best out of him, coming into his prime years too. I’ve been told it’s more a case of Nolan wanting out, but perhaps a break and squad refresh would give him something to think about.

I think anyone who is still under contract beyond the summer gets a chance to prove they can get fit and play during pre-season unless the club receives an offer from someone prepared to pay their wages or at least a decent proportion of them. I think Nolan could be a decent squad player next season.

Bishop is in his peak years, he can only really get another contract based on what he is now. At the moment his trouble is that he's neither one thing nor the other. He doesn't seem to be athletic enough to be a box-to-box midfielder, his movement and vision aren't really good enough for a number 10. So what you get from him is essentially 1 or 2 good dribbles per game, usually without a final ball, in exchange for relatively little pressing or defensive contribution. A shame, because in the Autumn he looked like he'd cracked it. Dribbling in the right areas, getting into shooting positions, scoring.

Dozzell's 21, first full season in the first team, learning a position usually occupied by much more experienced players, without much support. IMO he'll keep improving and be a very useful player when he's getting into his peak years.
