True. But one he'll be on the winning side.

After the false dawn at Fulham, once again we have been proven wanting. I thought the new manager syndrome would get us over the line if nothing else, but just that small tweak in the system of going with three at the front instead of a lone striker had us swimming against the tide. Now we are at the bottom of the table, all hope appears to be gone. It was a very sad day in a very sad season. At least we'll have some decent enough starters for a crack at getting towards the top of league one next season.
We were much improved under McCann

I'm afraid the only players I would keep out of this motley crew would be.
Thompson
Kent
Burrows
Poku
Would like to say Edwards and Benda, but both will be gone either sold or returned to their parent club.
The rest get rid

After yesterday's performance, I'm not sure if Burrows should be on the keeper's list. I think Jones may be worth sticking with. In League One, it is hard to see that Grant, Norburn, Ward, JCH, Knight, Szmodics, would not be able to hold their own. As for Benda, there is more chance of me climbing in bed with Penelope Cruz than him staying in a League One side.

I'm sure Penelope Cruz could do a better job in our back four right now, even wearing stillettos.

I would agree with most of this, but do we really need a group of DMac - Fergie recruits who can 'hold their own in League 1', but not perform at a higher level?

Keeping these would help confirm my suspicion that DMac is keener on being in L1 with parachute payments, rather than funding a Championship existence.

With Fergie gone and relegation pretty much assured the club needed a complete overhaul - I would sooner that was under the watch of someone new, but if it is Grant then so be it. Let's stop using the first team as DMac's market stall, and get some fresh faces from 1 - 11 in over the summer.

I would be happy if Benda was one of these, but there are plenty of modestly prices keepers about! Penny is not quite what she was, so one never knows ;-)

He could probably do a better job in goal as opposed to how he played against Hull! :)

If the 'climbing' is the problem Bristle then can I suggest you get a futon as you'll just need to roll & no climbing involved :wink:

I know I’m unfit but trust me if she were there I’d have no problem, I’ve loved since the first time I saw Jamon Jamon.
