So people are saying...

Keep the core of the team and we will be better next year. I'm sorry but if we play the same way I don't see any basis for that. I think Cuthbert would be the only one I would be sorry to lose from the side. Those who are saying this who do you think is actually up to standard? Without loan signings, I would only rate the following as good enough to make the starting 11 if we wanted to progress.

Farman
Wildin (if he had proper cover in front of him)
Cuthbert
Wilko?

Good enough for what?

For league 2 10th place? All of them.

For winning the league? Not many, if any.

For getting playoffs? Cuthbert, Nugent, Wildin, Hunt, Byrom, Timlin, Guthrie, Newton, Kennedy, Revell.

There isn't a straight forward answer to the question. Individually the players have enough ability. Are they right for this team, the way we play, playing together with other players etc etc? Don't know. That's why some players play well for some clubs after not having much success at another club. We've released plenty that didn't cut it her but have gone onto better things. Not because they weren't good enough but because tjey didn't work in the system for whatever reason.

That's them down to the manager to move players in and out. It's all very very identifying players woth the ability but until you play a season you don't know how they are all going to work out and why I like to give a manager more than 20 games to prove himself.

Play offs? Cuthbert, Newton and Farman the only ones for me. Maybe Timlin.

I'd expect Timlin or Byrom (one of) if they had a mobile athletic midfield around him.

I'd disagree with some of those playoff selections!

All together in a team then no, but put any one of them in Lincoln's team and theyd male the playoffs. For example.

I answered this below. The back 4, Farman, Wilko, Byrom and Timlin are more than good enough. He needs to find a formation that'll get the best out of those and the players around them.

It's no secret you don't like a lot (especially our midfield) so your choices won't shock anybody.

Genuine question, not having a go, but another year into their playing days what makes you think Byrom and Timlin are good enough to be in a League Two starting 11 with any other ambitions than avoiding relegation?

Sev, why do you believe those players are good enough to push for the playoffs... for me starting with Guthrie and Revell up front most games you would fail to score.

I think Timlin is massively overrated by many. Good player, but past his best.

I agree Revell and Guthrie as a partnership is shit.

But Revell with Newton or Guthrie with Newton is great.

Therefore I'd say they are both good enough.

Similarly with Byrom and Timlin. Together a no no for me but individually either one of them with an energetic box to box midfielder next to them would be ideal.

So the players for me are good enough. We just don't have the right mix or balance of other players to complement.
