Who in our team is good enough??


Life President
Jan 21, 2007
Who in our current team is actually good enough to play for the club?

Just an honest question because i think we have a lot of dross who would struggle to find another league 1 club.

Mildenhall: Good enough, and a decent keeper at this level.

Barrett: Good enough, captain for a reason. He will have to go some this season to cobble our ramshackle defence.

Francis: Good enough, the pick of the defence for me. He must play right back as we have sorely missed his attack play.

Malone: Subtitute. Would be good as back up , but for me is not good enough to be a first teamer. He is however young and i would be happy for us to sign him full time, although i prefered friend.

Mvoto: Good enough: The sooner we get him in the team the better. A really strong defender at this level and just what barrett and SUFC need right now.

Sankofa: Substitute. Im sure he could be a good player but i wouldnt feel comfortable with him playing regularly.

Herd: Good enough: My take on it is that he is our player, he is player that is liked by the fans.
He is better than malone and his throw is a weapon and will be another that goes on to greater things having not been given the chance.

Grant: Good enough, i feel granty 's best postion would be as holding midfielder as he lacks the pace or passing quality to be offensive. Good in the tackle.

JCF: Substitute: How he feels he can play premiership football is beyond me. I had high hopes when we finally got him in, but he has been poor. He has great physical strength and stamina , but lacks any kind of brain or passing quality . For me he would be second fiddle to Grant.

Macca: Good enough: For me he is the only player capable of driving the midfield and linking the play up top. That said he has not scored anywhere near enough and needs to improve. He also needs to kerb his temper as his pending suspension (one of many ) Suggest.

Moussa: Substitute: Very dissapointed in moose. I know he is out of position , but he seems to be going backward in terms of progression. Lately he seems incapable of the simple things like ball retention and simple passing.

Scannell: Not good enough: I had massively high hopes for Damien ever since he skinned konchesky like he was a pub player pre-season. I always love to see any non league player being given a chance in the league. He has had all the time in the world to make the transition, but for some reason cant shift the weight or retain fitness and that shows a lack of ambition and respect.

Laurent: Good enough: Consistency consistency consistency . That is key for Laurent. On his day he is without doubt bordering on premier quality, the problem is the other 5-6 games in a row that he is blue sq premier quality. He needs to find balance and find it quick because his play will be pivital in our survival.

Walker : Substitute: Similar to Scannell in that he has the quality and we have seen glimpses , orient away a prime example of that. He has however got a role to play in the end of season run in and i would expect him to start a game or two before the season is over. Time to take that chance James or you will be playing league two or lower.

Freedman: Good enough: Much as it pains me to say it , the man should be playing. He is the most experienced man in our squad has the most goals (career) out of our squad something we lack . Start him up top and substitute him nearer the hour. He is the one to pick a key pass.

Patterson: Jury's out: He has been isolated for the two games he has played and service has been awful. Needs to be given time and more importantly a striker partner.

Spencer: Jury's out: I dont know why but eversince he signed i have had a really good buzz about the boy.
He has done all he can since he arrived. He has scored in the reserves and in a 15 minute cameo at huddersfield. Could be a real find.

There are a few other fringe players , but they are just that.

I reckon maybe 5 of our current squad would have got into the team that won us the league in 2006 and that a fair few would have been loaned out.

Tilson the team and the fans are in for a nervy seasons end for sure.
