    He was offered the managers job and although I could understand the reasons for not taking it I posted my reasons why he might live to regret it.
    I'm glad he didn't succumb to the temptation I believe Alexander will prove he's the right appointment going forward.

    What success rate, do you realistically think a scout can achieve? I suspect it's higher than what the average throughout the pyramid.

    Note, that a scout has done his job if a player is signed and they improve whilst we're on their books / or live up to their reputation.

    Thanks for this. We've got plenty of tricky creative players and so another industrious midfielder would be ideal. Because if we can keep / win back possession, we should be able to create chances.

    It won’t matter that you rate them and are gutted that they are leaving.
    You’ve only watched them on a weekly basis.

    Some on here will dismiss them after seeing them probably once or twice at best all season.

    Is LLL the same fella that is Billy Bantam? Youd think he will have 1 or 2 connections within the club.

    I remember a fan calling Kavanagh "Costello 2.0" after his debut. We've enough idiots for every village in bradford.

    Not sure where your concerns are. Squad below only requires 16 registered players so there are still 6 places available. McDonald, Oduor and Wilson could also make way. Pointon and Kavanagh don't have to be registered.

    RWB, LWB, CBx3 = 5??????? Sorry, it just doesnt make any sense at all.


    DF - Halliday, Richards, Stubbs, Kelly, Platt, (5)

    MF - Smallwood, Gilliead, Pattison, Sarcevic, McDonald, Walker, Oduor, Wilson, Pointon (8)

    ST - Cook, Young, Smith, Kavanagh (3)

    Ok I've got my tin hat at the ready. Costello was more skillful than Kav, but Kav is the better footballer for us. Wonder where Costello is now?

    How does a fan of a L2 club know what’s required of L1? Clearly his club think NOT otherwise County would have offered them a mutually acceptable deal?

    I'd say Stockport think he's worth a punt at that level, given they offered him a 1 year deal but understandably at his age, he is looking for a bit more security.

    You could have an argument in an empty room. I asked him (or her) their thoughts.

    Edit - please also see Petrov's comment above

    When did you last see Smallwood ‘quickly run somewhere’?

    He did it quite often throughout the season. To the changing room after another defeat.

    So you don’t think it’s a fair question I ask? I think before I ask a question, normally.

    I have absolutely no idea. I’ve never worked in this industry so wouldn’t have a clue what the success rate is. But I do know, Gents is appalling given all the shite that has come and gone during his employment. Fans need to stop defending and applauding mediocrity and expect better for a change
