Erik bit the bullet and pushed additional money to the first team. Brave as hell decision that kept us in L1 but a £500k hole in the PL budget. We’d not of got a 9.3k stadium in L2. Reckon Joe has to go down that road? Stick £500k on that bridging loan or offer up a little more equity. Unless of course we really believe that L2 has been costed out properly and will work.

Doubt Joe wants relegation on his CV and some of these youngsters will be tough enough for L1 next season for sure.
Silk looking at highly rated players like Brewster and Solanke being passed around PL clubs and down into the championship I'm not sure there are many good strikers around anyway. Forss was probably a fluke - like when teams ended up with Harry Kane as he developed. The overall level for 19/20 year olds is probably not that high.

Longman playing for Hull, and even scored today. Certainly didn’t think he looked championship level last year

spit this is the strongest L1 since we've been in it - majority of L2 clubs would get absolutely smashed by the likes of Sheff Weds.

I think this shows where we are on the loans ladder. We are seen as a club to give games to players with no experience to see if they will sink or swim. We are not at a point where we can get players with 20 plus games under their belt who can make a difference.

Not too sure we will get offered too many decent strikers
Nick don't forget McCormick and Lawrence were outside the first team at a PL club - don't seem too bad. Mebude is a decent prospect and he's a mile better than Folivi but he's L1 level at best at present and clearly needs regular games and more time. Pressley is some way ahead of Mebude and from what I've seen he's better than the out on loan strikers people keep wanting back.

Maybe we should swap our defence with Sutton united they have 8 clean sheets from 19 games and are sitting pretty in the play offs

Given that our last 2 loans from Watford have been Folivi and Mebude, I think that we should adopt the “thanks, but no thanks” response if they offer us a loan in future - broadly shows that, once you get beyond the first team squad, most players at PL sides are pretty average at best, but of course every now and then you get a Ramsdale or a Forss on loan, so that’s obviously what is behind the strategy of going for loans.

I doubt anyone commenting on here knows what we're paying towards Pressley and Mebude's wages. So speculating about using those wages elsewhere is irrelevant.

Heneghan has 4 yellows in the League. We have only played 18 games so if hew gets one in the next league match he will get a ban.

We're 17th. We have 2 games in hand over most around us and 1 game in hand over the rest. 4 points clear of the last relegation place (with 2 games in hand on them). Win 1 of the games in hand we'd be 14th. Win both we'd be 11th. Considering we've taken 9 points from the last 9 games we're not in the worst place here by any means.

Now we know what Dapo and Pressley can or more to the point cannot do, I'd rather spend their wages more on one experience player if possible.

No concern about yellows accumulating for Heneghan or indeed anyone bar Assal who up to 7, as the rule is after the 19th game of the season (Crewe) there is no automatic ban until you reach 10 bookings. Apart from Assal we have no one on more than 4

McCormick and Lawrence have been good additions. Marsh not had a run in the side. Pressley, Dapo and Charles big let downs and could cost us in the long run. Sorry we are a league one team and it’s not a forgiving league. Think we need a bit of experience in the side to see out games. If that means jettisoning the said three above so we can get some experience in the side so be it.

Before they joined us Dapo had 12 appearances - 11 with Queen of the South and Pressley had 2 with Brentford. Quite how anybody could think they would be major players for us with that lack of experience is beyond me. Probably says a lot about the budget given to Robbo.

Heneghan must be near a ban for yellows. Isn’t Darius injured as well? The CB cupboard is bare as you like

At this level Pressley makes Jeremy Beadle's withered hand look like an impact sub. No doubt the lad is doing his best but he is nowhere near being effective in the role he's being played in with us.

Can't work out if MR brings him on because he doesn't want to risk a tired knock for OP, or whether we are contractually obliged to give him at least 10 mins every game.
I hear that but we look disorganised. To my eye, some of the goals we concede could be avoided though mere communication.

The most uncomfortable moment of the game was waiting to see what colour Heneghan card was after the lunge tackle. The idea of Darius and Csoka for our next 3 fixtures wasn't doing much for my positive outlook.

Good report REPD - about right. Leaving today the opinion appeared to be happy with a point, as we could have lost all three. Catering still needs sorting out - much revenue lost from those interested in buying but then leaving the queue actually to watch the second half; no strategy regarding better servicing the obviously likely busy times of the match

It’s not just about training it’s lack of quality I.e Henneghan is our best defender at present but he’s not in the same class as Darius or Demi were for example

Shame that Dapo and Priscilla have been such flopperoonis but arguably Darius Charles takes first place for dud of the season. If he’s our defence coach then I suggest he goes away and does his badges ‘cos we are all over the shop.
