Thread: Shrewsbury Town 1-0 Southend United

    Josh Wright seems to be a topic that has well and truly been discussed. His career to date does not suggest he is good enough to solve our problems other than give the manager another body to select from. If we sign him it is more than likely going to be at Yearwood's expense. That would be so wrong. He certainly isn't to get a lot of game time when everyone is fit but in there is potentially a very good footballer. Dru will learn from every minute he can get on the pitch this season. That will be to his benefit and the Club's benefit in the seasons to come.

    Only a side issue and maybe in the scheme of things of little consequence, but watching it on iFollow, it was apparent in the second half when the Blues were pressing for an equaliser, that the ballboy behind the Shrewsbury goal was, to put it mildly, taking his time in actually walking up to their keeper with the ball in his hand every time there was a goalkick. This happened at least four times. This, coupled with the Demetriou incident with a ballboy, suggests that the club has a policy of using these youngsters to time waste by delaying the return of the ball when the home side are running down the clock.

    The answer there would be ball-boys (or girls) from both sets of fans.
    That Curly Bob is a jolly good chap!

    Not sure if it's club policy or just the kids being absolute shitehawks, but it was annoying. I think the ref did indicate to our players at one point that he was keeping an eye on the time. The real solution is to move to a stopped clock, and to play 60mins

    Really surprised by the Lincoln stat we must have signed him on the back of the FA Cup televised games ,seems like his successful spells goal wise were with Derby and Huddersfield

    He's raw, and hopefully will get better and better.
    If it was "guarded" as you say,then you really need to explain how it went "under him."

    That is a first X1 that could potentially challenge for the title in this division so I do have some sympathy with PB but the bottom line is this injury crisis highlights the poor strength-in-depth of the squad. The signing of Josh Wright (IF it happens) and the return of Woody will help but while most of our defence is injured we will continue to leak goals and struggle.
    Id have Demi in there any day.... Attacking threat always and experienced defender and reasonably consistent compared to most. Did you not see the game last night..! How can you not include him....probably the most consistent player last year and always fit!

    As we've gone well and truely off topic to the usual/repeated points over and again I will make one that has been annoying me.
    All signings, all strategies are a risk. Having a smaller squad of better players backed up with youth players is a risk, but having a large squad of average players is a risk (Paul Sturrock anyone?).
    Signing players from higher up the leagues is a risk, signing players from down below is a risk.
    Everything is a risk, it is a judgement call as to which risks you take and how you balance them.
    Just because some people on here get over-excited about non-league talent doesn't mean they are better or without risk.
    To be honest, many people on here just want to attack Brown and are disappointed when we do well.

    I don't know for a fact if these are right, but the FACT Lenny turned down an improved contract and he is playing on the extension of his old one tells me that your figure for him is very much wrong. Now, if you had said Cox........

    Because he's not very good and John White has been our player of the season so far?

    Demetriou played well last night. Obviously had a point to prove and did well in a position he's not played before, alongside a youth LB playing CB and with McLaughlin in front who didn't offer much protection.

    The issue is Hendrie. Brown has dropped him and he didn't look happy at all during warm up. It'll be interesting to see if he goes with Hendrie or Demetriou on Sat.

    Hendrie is not a good player but we signed him based on a handful of games on loan a few seasons ago. Not played for the hammers and not played for Blackburn hardly all season.

    You can add the ridiculous decision to give Robinson a longer contract too. He is not good enough.

    Poor all round
    So neither are crocks or has beens? So name the ones that are?
