Manny Smith has always been one of our top players when in the team. Lawlor isn’t at the same level and Chambers is even further behind. Even Pearson with all his leadership qualities, doesn’t possess the same footballing ability as Smith.

I think the defence has looked shaky this season with a goalkeeper they lack confidence in behind them, and without the deep lying midfielder in-front. We’ve looked more likely to score at the other end, but the midfield has often been left exposed on the counter.

Tactically we’ve not got it right and recruitment on the whole has been poor. Yes, we have signed Hooper who has scored goals elsewhere at this level but Macintosh, Barton, Bobb, Chambers, Redmond have all shown very little. Rutherford was retained who again is a fill in player at best.
Redmond has been especially disappointing.
