I disagree, I have not been impressed with Walker at all since he joined on loan. He is quick but has a poor shot and will always try to over elaborate. However, I fully expect that T&B will put all of the players throught heir paces in pre season and may well work on each players weaknesses, something a bit easier to do with so few players signed on. It will be interesting to see if any of the contract rebels show up for pre season training today......................................

A lot of people forget how young Walker is. he's only 20 he's still learning and i think we still have a lot to see from him. I think he'll come good this season.

So what if he hit the bar in the play offs we still got spanked by the better side.

When you're feeling down about next season...

Look yourself in the mirror, tell yourself to grow up and give yourself a good hard slap.

Then put on a smile and be thankful you're not a Colchester or Orient fan.

anyone got that feeling that the scum will finish above this season? (if they survive to the end of the season which with that huge wage bill and transfer spending is highly questionable!)

Good. Maybe he'll learn how to control a football.

Personally I think he's pretty good, and has a good work ethic. But I also think he needs to improve his first touch.

I'm more than willing to give Revell a chance as he was injured for most of his time with us and i still dont think he was fully fit when he was back in the team.

He deserves a chance aswell as everyone else.

Spot on, Revell hasn't had a chance yet! Just because Freddy scored a hat trick on his debut we cant expect it of everyone!

I'm more than happy to give Revell a chance, the Brighton supporters must have recognised something special for him to be so popular, so let's just wait a while and give him a decent go, and not with make shift partners. I'd have him above Walker at the moment, Walker looked great coming on as a sub when he first came but has disappointed me since. Still happy for him to be given a chance though, players have to have some time to develop within a team.

Yep, another one in the "give Revell a chance" brigade. The boy was injured FFS!

:thump:

Why should I feel down about next season? We have Tilly & Brush - and that means we'll be absolutely fine.
