@Russ my position in south stand gives me a view of everything he does. Very good player in defence, where hes nimble on his feet he can nick it off bigger guys with ease. He’s also good in the transitional phase between middle of pitch and deeper into opponents half. Its just the final ball that lets him down, time and time again. Hopefully robbo and tuvey are working on these faults in training daily.

…..and absolutely no height ML. That team on Tuesday must be one of the poorest on paper to have represented AFCW for several years, in a league game.

MLD - This year *should* be the worst for balance. I think it's a nice strategy longer term, and even though we're one bloody place above relegation I enjoy our matches (on the whole!). Other seasons we'd finish in a similar position but it was mostly turgid shit so willing to give this strategy a go.

I guess a word of warning is that the team with the youngest overall squad before us was SwinDon (2015/16), and look how they've done! And our average age is somewhat skewed by Darius Charles.
Russ: yes but has to be a balance. We have not got that balance this year. Too young, too lightweight

SSU - He is starting to grow on me, thought he had a great game on Tuesday.

Honestly would not have been bothered if we released him in the summer but he is stepping up this season.
Lesson for this evening, whatever Slow Train says, the opposite will happen. Palmer, "increased offer from Wrexham was bollocks" Brown "amateur negotiations" 🤣🤣🤣

All in good fun. I honestly look forward to your posts😁
Selling youth is a long term strategy that works as long as we realise good fees for those we sell on so we can reinvest in the team/stadium/etc. Just as importantly didn't we - the fans - say we wanted to develop young players?

Get decent sell on % fees and we could be laughing in a few years.
Osew better than NGW but still not good enough for a relegation scrap. Right footers at right back too please …

@Russ Osew is the unsung hero for the dons. For me he’s one of the best players we have. Once he works on his final ball in he is going to be a very good kid and I be shocked to not see him at a higher level!!!

Couple of moments against Ipswich - On second viewing this was probably a yellow but a bloody cynical challenge [Link] How good is this turn from Osew? Where'd the opposing player go? [Link]

@spit thats essentially what we have become - a development squad. Sadly, I dont see anything changing soon.

Hang on a cotton picking moment. If this Lee Brown is allegedly one of Pompey's highest earners, how can we afford him?
27th Jan 2022 19:51:42 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
And yes I know he's 31
So at the end of the season the cream of the crop will get picked up by teams with cash to splash and we start next season with more untried youth,de ja vu/groundhog season.

[10.lo.gg.ed] 
Are we just a feeder team or do we have ambition?
Lee Brown would definitely be an upgrade. We tried to sign him previously before he went to Pompey. He only lives in Purley I think.

The kind of player you hate to play against but would love it if he played for your team. Knows all about the game management side of things which is what we desperately need. Now for a striker!!
Bit of rose-tinted glasses by some, since we've been in the league(ten years), we've only finished in top half of table once. That was 7th when we won playoffs and promotion

I think the guy from Barnsley seems a bit surplus to requirements when we have Dapo on the bench. Ablade seems useful although no need to recall Cosgrave (maybe we'll send him out on loan again though).
27th Jan 2022 19:37:09 
[81.lo.gg.ed] 
Would have preferred an extra CB but like strikers I'd imagine anyone who would improve the team will be short in supply
Obviously they are cheap but why so many when they are so green and not even required?
27th Jan 2022 19:31:37 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
We've got the new striker coming in (presumably) and Pressley to come back.
I'm not doom and gloom but i do tend to agree with bluewomble. I mean i can see what we are trying to do but a slightly more balanced approach would be nice, and hopefully we will see that with the signing of an experienced left back and striker now. And hopefully it will be a lesson for next season that we will need to sign a couple of experienced players in the summer too, even if we also sign some younger lads to develop.
27th Jan 2022 19:29:16

Balance please
KD: because they are cheap

Bluewomble. I actually think this season is playing out pretty much how I expected in a weird way. By that I mean... We have seen some of our better young players developing and attracting interest from higher placed clubs. We have sold a player for money. We have had some great games moments but have been poor and inconsistent in others. Plough Lane changes and improves a little each week. The revenue from PL was never going to help in 1st season with big bridging loan interest, lack of events etc.. Covid didn't help of course. I would have hoped we had won a few more home games however.

Fuller was being targeted by other teams as a weak spot. I think we released him at the right time and some decent form for Dorking Wanderers isn't going to change my mind on that. :P He did always give 100% though, deservedly a popular player in his time here.

What I can't quite work out is how we've ended up with a harem of U23 forwards, most of who aren't ours.

[86.lo.gg.ed] 
All getting a bit Dan Micciche
I’m not going to harp on regarding how we have gone from an experienced side to a virtual U23 side with no experience and that includes the manager and backroom team who who have no long term experience at league level as it all comes down to money. We are a league one side so why’s it all gone south. Has Plough Lane skint Ed us that much.

CW - that's certainly not my recollection. Was the case for Paul Robinson but despite losing a bit of pace Fuller was still one of our most consistent performers. Also think he was Gillingham's player of the year the following season. There were people who said we were right to let him go but they were, in my view at the time, completely wrong!
