I haven't been around that much the last week... Just dipping in and out. I see there has been a bit of discussion on who we should keep but no one has mentioned Jon Nolan either way.
So what do we think? I personally reckon he could thrive in a Paul Cook team. With the right players around him I think we could see him at his best especially at this level. Cook has said that Nolan is a player he was looking forward to working with so I suspect he'll stay.
'.... it was too slow, too pedestrian, and really not playing like they were supposed to.'
'I didn't think we worked hard enough in possession or out of possession.'
'... players running past ours far to easily.'
'There need to be a few home truths.'
'... another pathetic goal to concede.'
'Clearly our attitude wasn't right tonight.'
All quotes from the Paul Hurst interview after being knocked out of the cup by Exeter in August 2018, 2 years and 8 months ago.
Every comment could apply to our players now and, get this, five (FIVE) of the players who finished yesterdays game played in that Exeter game.
Those comments are when I believe Hurst may have started to lose the Dressing room. The players did not react well. Many on here were calling out Hurst saying he was wrong and out of order. We stuck up for the players and blamed Hurst. I'm no Hurst apologist but I think he was bang on.
Now Cook is saying the same things all these years later and we all agree. Remeber five players still there yesterday pulling the same stunt. Isn't hindsight a wonderful thing
