Just thought as we are now half way through the season that i'd enlighten you all with a half term reprt on the team from my point of view.

Flahavan - Darryl is relaible and dependable as ever, saved us several points at the start of the season, but, I still think we have got to find better if we are to progress.

Jupp - Dunc has only played a handful of games but during those has been solid without excelling, a good backup player.

Super Cheese - Che has been one of my players of the season so far working his nuts off for the cause. Especially when he has no competition for his place.

Hunt - Good defender and one of our better players, however, i do wish he was a bit more confident in taking shots when he gets the opportunity.

Prior - Has not been the player he was last season but still gives us everything all the time.

Barrett - Adam set himself some very very high standards last year and has not yet lived up to them this, but i'd always have him as the first name on my teamsheet evey time.

Gower - Has been unlucky in picking up injuries but since he has come back i feel he is giving eveything and should be encouraged more than some fans have so far.

Maher - Now i'm not one of Kev's biggest fans but even i have to admit when he's on form he is very good but we dont seem to have seen it for a while, perhaps a spell on the bench would gee him up a bit to the form we all know he can produce.

Goater - When he's good he's very very good when he's not he's a waste of space.  I hope when he comes back from injury we see more of the good Goat.

Gray - Has great pace yet doesnt seem to use it often enough, good header of the ball yet 1 on 1's need a lot of improvement.

Pettefer - Not seen enough of him this year ! In my view he is one of the most solid players we have without being showy, need to use him more.

Bentley - Needs to be more consitent, gives his all and what he loses in skill he makes up for in effort.

Griemink - Only played a few games but has performed reasonably well, i'm a bit worried that he is too injury prone need him fit pushing Darryl for the number 1 spot.

Cole - To come from non league to League 1 is a big step up yet Mitchell has done really well and i can only see him getting better.

Edwards - Very good first half of the seaon especially as he warmed the bench most of last year, he is my preferred partner for Barrett.

Guttridge - Player of the season so far ! I was very sceptical when we signed him yet he has gone from strength to strength, i'd like to see him given the chance to run the midfield without Mahers interference.

Smith - After 2 years out Jay has proved that we were right to keep him I think that a partnership with Guttridge could be excellent for us.

Lawson - What a find ! Scored twice in the 6 games he's started.  It would be nice if he got a run in the team to see if he has really got what we need, GOALS !

JCR - Has great potential and I would like to see him stay but £100K + is a lot of money and in my view has not done enough for us to warrant such a high fee.

Freddy - Has looked good for most of the year and is the only player in the team that can create out of nothing. WE MUST KEEP HIM IF WE ARE TO PROGRESS.

There you have it, my view on the first half of the season there to be shot at by everyone.  Its been another rollercoaster but when hasnt it been supporting this fantastic team of ours.  Here's to Championship football after the second half of the season.
