Starting 11
 
Lainton - Good enough when fit

Reckord - Not good enough Last season or this season
Hayden - A liability
Tozer - Not worth what we spent
Lennon - I canít comment
French - Too many mistakes

Davies - Decent
Young - struggling
Jones - Not good enough (compared to Keates and Harris in their prime for us)

Hyde & Mullin - Quality


Weíve taken a giant leap forward with the forwards but gone backwards in defence and midfield

Lainton - Good enough

Reckord - Not technically good enough - good positioning
Hayden - hit and miss distribution - if he finds his feet looks real quality
Tozer - Good leader and player - Hopefully they figure out the throws
Lennon - Haven't seen enough
French - been ok so far but might be better if he slots into cb

Davies - Great alternative attacking option
Young - struggling
Jones - Class vs notts - not as good vs woking

Hyde - quality
Mullin - He just moves differently - different gravy

I disagree with them assumptions. Thankfully football is about opinions.
If the side was that bad as described we wouldn’t have picked up any points.
Fine tuning, games and time is required but most of all patience.
Unfortunately expectations are unrealistic…but some don’t realise that yet.
Keep the faith!!

The comments are with a view to winning the league and partly my point, there was talk of winning the league or going unbeaten. The reality is, the only semi comfortable match weíve had was at Eastleigh.

Solihull outplayed us, we were decent against Notts and average or poor for the rest of them.

I can be a right pessimistic fu**er but even I realise with 10 new players it will take time for us to settle.

We have too much quality to be far away from top spot even though we aren't firing.

We will come good and with 2 or 3 quality signings in January I think we will be in the hunt for the title in April

Agreed and I realise that, if you look at my comments I think we’re 4 quality signings away.

Reckord
Hayden
French
Jones

We all know we've fu**ed up by not strengthening midfield but weve still got enough quality to be in the hunt by January.....I wouldn't call it limping exactly although it is frustrating.

We will go on a winning run once we settle down and we've got every chance once we strengthen in January

benwilliams 17th September 2021 21.19:01

Re: Starting 11
 
Ok ill add my snap judgements from the 3 games I've actually attended/watched:

Lainton - fine need to keep concentration
French - better than expected keep it up
Cleworth - too raw for a team with title aspirations
Hayden - a class act but prone to a cock up
Tozer - solid hate the throw ins and not sure he is worth the £££ yet
Lennon - very good player but made of glass
Reckord - better than last season but still frustrating and erratic
Jones - not seeing it yet
Young - out of position, too frantic, feel for him
Davies - ok not hit the heights of 2nd half last season yet
Mcalinden - crap headless chicken
Mullin - class act frustrated by the averageneas around him so far
Hyde - really good player, great finisher, dropping too deep given our midfield inadequacies
Angus - poses a threat but only really effective playing off a big man, may do better wide in a 433

The rest I've not seen long enough to judge

I'd go with that, Brisley to see if he can deal with the high balls into the box, and mullen behind Hyde and Angus, if Davies not available. Although I though Angus was poor Tuesday

Re: Starting 11
 
Lainton - class for this level, unfortunately has injury issues, would no doubt be playing higher if he consistently played and didnít have injuries or potential injuries casting doubt in his mind, i.e commanding the area with set pieces or committing forward to cut out earlier chances. Reckord - Abit of a scapegoat to be honest. Weíve had decent attacking LBs with Ashton, Jennings and at first, Newton(yes he lost his bottle pretty fast and went shite towards his tenure) but from what Iíve seen in person, Reckord is steady and solid. Wonít concede many down his side but wonít create too many either unless he has a creative option in front, which is harder with 5/3/2. Hayden - Quality. Seams to be facing the harsh reality of defending against 6ft6 shithouses with more scrapping attributes than footballing pedigree but Iím sure he will stand out sooner than later as you can tell heís a cut above. Tozer - Men of men, proper leader. Screams captain and probably would have been if we signed him before announcing Young as it. Should be in League 1 atleast with his ability to lead and read the game. If we can implement his throws into our game plan properly then we have a real weapon on our hands, IF. Lennon - Many people doubted the lad when he came in, rightly so to be fair, with his injury record. But obviously, the people behind the scenes had an idea of the role he will play(3 at the back with Brisley/Cleworth to replace when required. I think the back 3 will be Hayden Tozer and Brisley towards the end of the season, but Lennon clearly has the class to play higher. Itís a shame with injuries as he probably wonít get a full season for a long time. Looked shakey at first but he was back from injury. Looked class the games after, more confident/settled? Will require time to become a full season starter but definitely has the potential if he stays injury free. French - has made RWB his own to be fair. Class act, frustrated at the lack of game time last season and rightly so. Will be hard to drop for RHJ. Iíd even jiggle the formation slightly to fit both personally, with RHJ attacking prowess and Frenchís athleticism and defence capabilities. Young - I want Young to prove everyone wrong and show why heís been picked as captain. Capable player but definitely doing a role that doesnít do his justice. The lad has a rocket of a shot and a decent engine, however, can come across slightly erratic and almost trying to do too much in the defensive role. Davies - Can look like a world beater one game and be Casper the ghost the next. Obvious talent and worth building a team around to accommodate his strengths. Brighton wouldnít have signed him if they didnít see a player in him. Needs to find consistency and confidence to play against the ugly teams. He will skin them alive if he can find those two components. James Jones - Hard one to judge as I have only seen the few games heís played in the Wrexham shirt. Seams to always stand out in a disoriented/bypassed midfield. Seams to know where the net is and can pick out a creative pass. Is he too similar to Young in the style of play? I think all three would flourish if one was dropped for that illustrious holding midfielder that seams to of passed us by again. Hyde - Class. So strong and was the obvious candidate to partner with Mullin. Hold up play is decent and can also score. Will hit 15 atleast this season. Remember the days of holding forwards who couldnít score (the Drewe Broughtons, Mark Becks, well, those couldnít even play football but you get the idea, too many too mention). Mullin - Absolutely class. Everything he touched is magical and we must simply build the team to have him at forefront of everything. Reminds me of a better Andy Mangan . Phil Parkinson - has built a class team and his name has obviously aided the signings of some big names(or was it the money and/or Les Reed). Can get results and build really solid looking teams without the thrills. Seams a cut above our conference managers of the past, but have we signed the right style of players to match his style of play. I hope so.

Agree with you there! We were never gonna run riot straight away with a new team. Weíve picked up points that we no doubt wouldnít have in the past. You feel like we can get results anywhere, whereas it was a miracle if we got away wins regardless of the opponent the last few years.

Pretty much agree with all of that. We aren't playing as a team all the time and there is plenty to improve still but we look hugely improved over last season (in the home games at least which are the ones I've seen).

I agree with your point over the start too, compare our statler with Dagenham, in their first 6 games theyve played 4 of last seasons bottom 5.

Re: Starting 11
 
[QUOTE=Nightmancommeth;2516471]Lainton - class for this level, unfortunately has injury issues, would no doubt be playing higher if he consistently played and didnít have injuries or potential injuries casting doubt in his mind, i.e commanding the area with set pieces or committing forward to cut out earlier chances. Reckord - Abit of a scapegoat to be honest. Weíve had decent attacking LBs with Ashton, Jennings and at first, Newton(yes he lost his bottle pretty fast and went shite towards his tenure) but from what Iíve seen in person, Reckord is steady and solid. Wonít concede many down his side but wonít create too many either unless he has a creative option in front, which is harder with 5/3/2. Hayden - Quality. Seams to be facing the harsh reality of defending against 6ft6 shithouses with more scrapping attributes than footballing pedigree but Iím sure he will stand out sooner than later as you can tell heís a cut above. Tozer - Men of men, proper leader. Screams captain and probably would have been if we signed him before announcing Young as it. Should be in League 1 atleast with his ability to lead and read the game. If we can implement his throws into our game plan properly then we have a real weapon on our hands, IF. Lennon - Many people doubted the lad when he came in, rightly so to be fair, with his injury record. But obviously, the people behind the scenes had an idea of the role he will play(3 at the back with Brisley/Cleworth to replace when required. I think the back 3 will be Hayden Tozer and Brisley towards the end of the season, but Lennon clearly has the class to play higher. Itís a shame with injuries as he probably wonít get a full season for a long time. Looked shakey at first but he was back from injury. Looked class the games after, more confident/settled? Will require time to become a full season starter but definitely has the potential if he stays injury free. French - has made RWB his own to be fair. Class act, frustrated at the lack of game time last season and rightly so. Will be hard to drop for RHJ. Iíd even jiggle the formation slightly to fit both personally, with RHJ attacking prowess and Frenchís athleticism and defence capabilities. Young - I want Young to prove everyone wrong and show why heís been picked as captain. Capable player but definitely doing a role that doesnít do his justice. The lad has a rocket of a shot and a decent engine, however, can come across slightly erratic and almost trying to do too much in the defensive role. Davies - Can look like a world beater one game and be Casper the ghost the next. Obvious talent and worth building a team around to accommodate his strengths. Brighton wouldnít have signed him if they didnít see a player in him. Needs to find consistency and confidence to play against the ugly teams. He will skin them alive if he can find those two components. James Jones - Hard one to judge as I have only seen the few games heís played in the Wrexham shirt. Seams to always stand out in a disoriented/bypassed midfield. Seams to know where the net is and can pick out a creative pass. Is he too similar to Young in the style of play? I think all three would flourish if one was dropped for that illustrious holding midfielder that seams to of passed us by again. Hyde - Class. So strong and was the obvious candidate to partner with Mullin. Hold up play is decent and can also score. Will hit 15 atleast this season. Remember the days of holding forwards who couldnít score (the Drewe Broughtons, Mark Becks, well, those couldnít even play football but you get the idea, too many too mention). Mullin - Absolutely class. Everything he touched is magical and we must simply build the team to have him at forefront of everything. Reminds me of a better Andy Mangan .
