    Totally agree. You could expect say 4-6 goals from defenders and many more from the midfield/wide players. Cook is a 1 in 3 striker. Put another one up with him and get a full season and the forward play should have a far better record.

    One of our midfield/wide players will still be Gilliead next season so someone will have to pick up his slack

    And here we are debating about improving on Andy Cook!

    A player who both manager's this season have picked quite consistently. What do you know that they don't about his performances?

    Hughes has played him in the deep lying midfield role recently. He seems better suited there, where his almost non existent goals and assists record is less of an issue. He's always been a hard worker, not afraid of a tackle, and good at ball retention but with no end product. Maybe Hughes has found Gilliead's best position?

    He's definitely better further back but isn't great defensively which is an issue when played with Watt and Walker.

    If we can finally sign that midfield general, then perhaps it's less of an issue but as we've seen this year, defensively the midfield is fairly weak.

    Once again, would you like to tell me why you know more than the two managers who have managed and picked him regularly this year?

    Whilst you are at it - are there any other players you feel should be hounded out of the club because you with your "wisdom" deem them useless?

    I like the fact that we had a bit of needle about us today. It was a dead rubber game, but there was no sense of us going through the motions. You just sense there's and air about Hughes as a leader, thats about maintaining standards, all the time.

    No doubt the players were reminded of the snide attitude of their lot in the reverse fixture, and then with the way in which the minutes silence was disgracefully disrespected, I just had a sense of the players not accepting it, and putting a bit of a marker down. Weve been a soft touch for far too long and I sense a bit of authority and edge coming into our game.

    Being less shit than some of your team mates isn't a reason to.keep him for next season.

    Well it was there for everyone to see that even after such a few games in charge Mark Hughes is prepared to be the first man to protect his players, when he in no uncertain terms made Gavin Skelton realise he is the gaffer not him, once again the referee who had a very good game didn't get involved, he read the situation waiting with his officials on the edge of the penalty box away from the (handbags nothing else) let it peter out then took his fellow officials for a well earned half time cuppa, well done Mr James Bell.

    Yes , along with the Sutton ref, he was among two of the best refs we have seen this season.
