    AOC's time at Bradford was up, but he is a decent lower league defender. I would rather Colchester didn't get him! Be interesting to see how Fiacre does. He didn't look a lost cause to me. I'll give you Threlkeld though :grinning:

    Agreed. AOC wasnt a disaster. Neither was Wood to be honest. Capable lower league players. No frills.

    I thought Wood was decent and he had a little spell where he looked like he could easily play higher up the divisions.

    His pace got us out of a few sticky situations where an opposing player was bearing down on goal.

    Before his 2 horrendous injuries Adam Chicksen looked a decent full back. He was never the same after

    What a contrast in styles we had in midfield with Kennedy and Palin. Totally different, but both did a very good job for us

    Kennedy would be always suspended these days though!

    I reckon Kennedy wouldn't see half time in most games nowadays tbh.

    Wouldn't we all. Imagine him and Kammy alongside each other in central midfield!

    Afraid he wouldn’t be on the pitch long in today’s game. Booked in 5 minutes off after 15

    Absolutely - two potentially career ending injuries in one season, but some on here blamed him for all city's failings.

    He's found his level that's all. He wasn't good enough when he was here, just as he wasn't good enough for several other league clubs who took him on and then didn't really feature much.

    Good luck to the lad, I'm pleased he's doing well but let's not pretend it was a mistake to move him on just because he's scored a few from left back in the division below.
