Honest Hats On - Had Anyone Heard Of Crofts???

Recommended Posts

[quote user="Arthur Whittle"]My point was Evans would do much better for us overall than Hoolahan, and I do like Wes.

Evans workrate for us in the championship was better than Wes....so I see what you mean chops.[/quote]Exactly.  My worry about Lambert is when he came in, his first act was to drop Doc and Wes.  Now I know both players have their limitations, but they were also two of our very best players in a Championship winning season.  Lambert hasn''t managed at this level, and I worry that he thinks League One players will magically be able to step up.  For instance, Lappin is NOT a Championship footballer.

I do hope this is not the case and he realises the title winning squad will are not good enough for cham,pionship football....some will step up and take to it, others wont....he needs to weed those players out, not a question of loyalty, its about whats best for our club.

[quote user="Mister Chops"][quote user="Mustachio Furioso"]Those on here who say "yeah, I know of such and such a player" have probably only come across them on Championship Manager.

I think it was something to do with player image rights, but all the players on Megadrive SS had their names scrambled (or at least the vowels).

It was all about rights I think. Great thing about the Amiga version was being able to edit the teams, something I don''t think you could do on the Megadrive.

 

.....brings back memories of what a great gaming machine the Amiga was (for it''s time of course).

Yes I''d heard of him but to honest hadn''t taken much notice of him!

 

If he turns out like messrs Russell Martin, Olli Johnson, who I''d never heard of then he''ll be more than OK!

 

In Lambert we must trust even though he released the Doc!
