I disagree I have seen him have some very good games. I also think that whilst people are entitled to their opinion and will give it regardless of what I think my opinion is that this singling out of players when the whole team is not producing results quite unsavoury and potentially counter productive if any of the players look at this forum.
Am I the only person who doesn't rate Ben Goodliffe and thinks he is only in the team because his dad is the assistant manager?
He can't seem to deal with crosses into the box and he seems to lose his man more often than not. I saw more from Pearce in the few games he played for us last season than I have from Ben.
Like all young players he won't be consistent and with Dan alongside him we are playing two young centre backs. When Jamie is fit again it will certainly help who he plays alongside. Pearce benefited enormously playing alongside Jamie but he is still getting back to full fitness after his injury. I thought Pearce was an equally good centre back as the other youngsters.
He wouldn't be the first player in football to have benefited from whom his father is.
As for comments on individual players I find amusing. It is ok to praise individuals, such as Harry for putting his heart and soul into a match and crying at the end of it having lost, but we can't say whether we think a player isn't at the grade or putting in the effort incase it shatters their confidence?
They are footballers, many of which will have ambitions to play at higher levels. If they can't take some judgement on their performances then they should perhaps stick to playing non competitive matches with their mates rather than playing at a national level in front of thousands of people who will be judging them. It would only get worse the higher up they go.
This is a fans forum yet the sanitised nature of it is exactly why a lot of supporters don't bother with it any more.
The team might not be performing well at present but I feel we need just a few changes to improve things which I believe is a better centre back alongside Skip who can defend balls into our box, a keeper who can come and collect corners/crosses and command his area and a proper right back so we are not playing our best midfielders there.
I was about to post that i could see nothing snide,childish or irresponsible about that post.Unfortunately for the vast majority of supporters, at games and in this forum, we have a very small group of people who always think they know best and see it as their duty to "police" this place by correcting and nitpicking every time someone expresses an opinion or even misplaces a comma.As stated above ,many good posters have simply given up.No prizes can be given for guessing who they (the police) are as it would be akin to stating the bleeding obvious.
Without repeating myself it's pretty straightforward.
Everyone has the right to their opinion but it's best to bear in mind two points.
A) With that right comes responsibility and any post you make may have unintended outcomes. When someone is negative about a player, that player will always have the chance of reading it. Not all of them will have thick skins (especially the younger ones) and theres a chance that it could negativity impact on their performance as a result. There have been plenty of examples where this has been the case, the most recent being Aaron Drinan last season who basically had the stuffing knocked out of him due to what was almost a relentless campaign by a small group of Sutton fans. Any player playing for us is unlikely to improve if they are being slagged off, either in person or online.
B) With your right to your opinion comes the right for anyone else to challenge your opinion. If you don't want that challenge then don't offer it. You have no right to take that away from others.
georgieboy: Brilliant result especially after travelling up on day. Well done all.

merchandiser: You guys make me laugh, have you been to many away grounds, I don't think so. When we travelled up north for most of the trophy rounds last season, you would not believe, it was like going back to the seventies.

scorpioeyes: I predicted a relegation struggle with a totally inexperienced manager. Hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it. MG is out of his depth,that's obvious.

ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.
