Lots of people miss the point - they were the reliable, trustworthy, honest, hard-working decent players that every team needs in the dressing room.
What we've lacked is 20 goal a season strikers, midfielders arriving late in the box and sticking away chances, flying wingers, flair players to unlock defences, stick a 30 yard free-kick into the top corner etc.
It's the fact that we've been relying on the likes of Sears, Hawkins, Judge, Bennetts, Jackson, Norwood, Nolan etc. to provide this that we've been so rubbish.

If we sorted out the fitness situation and had most of our team available for most of our games, we'd easily have got two more wins to get us into the play-offs. Add in not being managed by Lambert who was awful, that's probably another two wins from somewhere. Add in another two good attacking players and an upgrade at centre-half, that's another couple of wins and we're challenging for automatic promotion.
The 'demolition man' stuff is Cook on an ego trip, nothing more nothing less. It's Paul Hurst on steroids, for me.

Do we not get to hear him speculating on what Marcus Evans thoughts might be on the Ed Sheeran deal? Bl**dy disappointing if that's no longer going to be a part of ITFC.

Is he staying or going? What's the inside info / TWTD mood on this?

Looks a decent player, good crosses with right and left foot, decent decision-making.

We got well-beaten by Doncaster, Hull, Portsmouth etc this season, but we're going on a run against the worst teams in the division, and struggling to create any kind of chance (bit better re chances tonight).
Baffling selections, players don't look motivated, manager repeatedly just blaming the players. Doesn't look great to me.
|Observations on Bristol City Transfer policy|
at 09:22 14 Apr 2021
Looking at the Bristol City squad, there are quite a few low ambition signings in recent years that don't really point to the man Ashton being such a whizz in the transfer market.
In the last few years they've brought in Henri Lansbury, Chris Martin, Tommy Rowe, Danny Simpson, Nakhi Wells, Adrian Mariappa, Marley Watkins who are all 30 or over now and are at a stage of their career where low-midtable Championship is about their level, or lower.
Andreas Weimann is presumably on a big wage and was signed for a big fee that they aren't going to get anywhere near to recouping, and he hasn't pulled up any trees.
Can't really see any exciting signings other than a 19 year old Frenchman from Monaco, and a couple of young players picked up from Chelsea.
Not intended to be negative, and I do still think we need a fair bit of leadership and know-how alongside our youngsters (who I still think are pretty talented at this level). Someone like Lansbury might be a good shout for us, assuming he's done in the Championship.

|2 minute silence??|

Did I hear that right?
Edit: Yes I did - I wonder what the players will think about in the second minute that they didn't have time to think about in the first?

----Norwood (Drinan 45)--- Hawkins
Edit: Thought I was replying to the other thread about the line-up. To be honest this doesn't deserve to have it's own thread.

|The question is|
at 13:30 7 Apr 2021
Will it be a 'promotion at all costs' strategy, where we try and just sign the best players that'll be willing to come to ITFC, and basically it's sh*t or bust a la the start of the Evans era, or will it be a cannier approach where we have a sophisticated recruitment strategy, only sign players 23 and under, do more scouting from the European Leagues etc., and accept that it won't give us immediate returns.

We're definitely going to lose 0-1 on Saturday with Charlie Brown getting the winner.
