My other team (Witton) in the Northern Premier step 3 and all levels below that have just had their seasons written off completely. Hope yet as not sure how they could bring everything into line if this runs over the summer. #shitbutstayingup

Sounds like promotion only. Which was talked about a few weeks ago. Where 4 or 5 teams go to the prem instead of just 3 or 4
And no teams from the prem get relegated, but next season 5 teams go out

Release all the players apart from the following.

Farman
Newton
Bastein or whatever the other goalkeeper is called.
Dabo
Cassidy

For me, the priority is just surviving as a football club.

Any players that don't get released will surely have to take a pay cut, while other clubs will probably have to do the same with their wage bill.

I hope that first game back is a home match. It should be a big crowd, as both home and away fans alike will have missed their football fix.

Neither of those are a must

Manager needs to be selected early. Needs to have a plan. A style. Needs to know the type of team he wants and how they're going to play. Needs to pick players that fit. Doesn’t matter if they have no experience or loads. If it’s Revs, it’s Revs.

The must is they decide who to release. The fact you didn’t name Carter either is mind blowing

Why on earth would we keep Parrett or Byrom? Both been constantly injured. Both well past their best. I doubt either are cheap.

I really don't understand why people are opposed to us gutting the entire squad, with only a few exceptions. We finished bottom. We have been AWFUL all season. The ONLY player that has genuinely been impressive is Dabo, and I suspect that is largely down to the fact that almost every other player this season has been dogshit so he looks world class by comparison.

I agree that we should keep Carter. He's young and seemingly has potential.

I'd add Newton, Cassidy, Dabo, Bastien. Probably the youth players. I'd consider giving the newer lads a chance, too (the other players Westley brought in). And then maybe Cuthbert, to keep some experience in the team. Cassidy hasn't been fantastic, but he works hard and is clearly a decent target man. We knew he wasn't going to score goals, but I think his touch, movement, work rate and strength show that he is capable.

I don't think any of the others can make any strong claims for being kept on.

Let's not ignore the fact that these players have contributed to us finishing bottom. All of them. Why we would have an extensive list of players to keep is beyond me.

I’m not saying keep loads of them. I’m saying let the manager decide. There is other factors that have led to this season. If they want to keep let’s say ten of them and thinks they fit his plan. Then so be it

I’d still argue Denton has something about him and maybe List. But those could go either way

Controversial opinion. Dabo isn’t that good.

But Im never gonna say Do this. Do that. No. Let the manager decide who and what he wants

He’s debut was very good and his very good at ball retention but past that. Looks lost. Not his fault but his lack of communication with the others don’t help. Once the balls gone past him, he’s like a puppy dog. He’s ability to track his man is abysmal. Look at the goals conceded closely since cambridge. He looks good because of those around him rather than actually being good.

"Not his fault but his lack of communication with the others don’t help."

What a cheap attempt at football analysis; assuming he doesnt speak english just because he's French? You can barely speak English and you were born here.

I'm sorry, but you are completely wrong. If you think Dabo is to blame for most of our goals conceded this season then you're just plain wrong. There are far worse players on this team and far bigger culprits to be blaming.

Sure, he isnt phenomenal, hence why he's playing in League Two, but he's very, very clearly one of our best players. Sure, his competition for that accolade is poor, but you absolutely cannot start pointing a finger at him.

I cant be bothered to check but did I read somewhere else that you rate Denton? Yet you dont rate Dabo?

So Westley says he doesn’t speak it, along with Revs, along with Lakin, even along with Carl the player coach driver who said the exact same thing when in Bristol for the EFL Trophy.

With all of that information, I can clearly see why Reece assumes that he doesn’t speak English. Fair point?

Lakin, Carter, Leesley Revell and Westley have all said he don’t speak English so it’s difficult for him in interview . So “cheap analysis” is facts. Also proven by his mis placed pass stats which are way higher than they should be

Two As and currently working towards a first in a media and broadcasting degree so you can fuck right off with your personal insults. You have no right. You don’t know me. Fuck off

Wasn’t blaming him. Don’t even think he’s that bad. Just don’t think he’s as good as the god everyone makes him out to be. Just think he could of done better tracking his man on certain goals. I can point a finger at who I like and it’s at all of them

Rate is a bit far on Denton. I don’t think he’s as bad as everyone makes out to be.

"Also proven by his mis placed pass stats which are way higher than they should be."

What stats? What's the source?

I would be shocked if his pass completion rate was lower than others on the team. I also would be shocked if it was lower than the League Two average.

I also think using him not speaking English as a reason for misplacing passes is a dubious link, at best, and comical at worst.

Only worse pass completion stats in midfield is Arthur

Lakin, Westley and Revs all spoke about it leading to a few rhythm issues.

I know this may be hard for you to understand but we can rate and not rate the players you do. It’s subjective.

I am in no way suggesting he is a bad player, but his quality has been vastly exaggerated by many.

If we had any remotely decent midfielders in our team to compare him to we wouldn't be thinking he was as good as we do. Compare him to midfielders in other L2 sides and you will see he is decent but nothing amazing.

But the point is that he is very clearly one of, if not the best player on the team. So to suggest that it might be up for debate as to whether we should keep him is just simply bizarre.

And before either you or Donnelly start crying that neither of you suggested we should get rid... we were discussing which of the few players we would keep. Donnelly responded saying that he doesn't think Dabo is that good. So presumably the point is that he's debating whether we should be clamoring to keep him.

Whether or not Dabo is amazing, at this point, is kind of irrelevant. He is excellent compared to our other players. Whether or not we try to keep him shouldnt even be up for debate.

When put under pressure with the ball, he would attempt to hold onto it and find a pass, instead of relieve the pressure by giving it directly to the nearest opposition player. This makes him god-tier in the present squad.

I honestly think his ability to retain possession when under pressure makes him better than your average League Two player. Most League Two players, with the exception of the top-end players just fucking launch it when under pressure. That's why they play in League Two.

In a team where he didn't have to run the entire team himself, I think he would still be an excellent part of the team.

I think you'd struggle to name many central midfielders that we have had (perm signings, not loans) since joining the Football League, other than Bostwick, who would be a guaranteed starter ahead of Dabo.

"I don't think Dabo is anything particularly special either, bar his debut."

Indeed look at the videos of goals conceded after Cambridge match . Often he wasn't tracking back with his man, of course others did either tbf

Honestly, I dont fucking get this fan base.

People defend and praise absolute shit like Nugent, Walton, Burrow, and Dale fucking Gorman. And then say that players like Dabo, Dembele and Darius Charles "aren't that good."

I can accept that Dabo isnt the best League Two player we've ever seen, but in this season of absolute dross, that's the player that we are now saying "yeah he ain't that good" about?!

I cant get my head around how people think Dabo isnt that good yet are debating whether or not Nugent is a good League Two player.

Unreal. I just dont get it. Its maddening.

It was a joke, a Christmas joke.

I like Dabo. You're right his ball retention is very good and he's always looking to play it about on the deck instead of hoofing it to the front three.

Nugent misses Cuthbert. The whole team miss Cuthbert. He's worth his weight in gold and it's no suprise we've been absolute dogshite since his injury on NYD.

We've been dogshit since the first game of the season, tbf.

Yes, Cuthbert is a solid League Two defender, and no doubt the team would have been better with him in it. But Nugent could be playing alongside Ramos and he'd still be awful. Because he's awful.

Let’s just hope that if we retain our league status (well done coronavirus, never doubted ya!), that Phil takes this season as a glimpse of what can happen if we don’t recruit properly, to both management and playing staff. I for one would NOT want Revs to continue, but think a whole new start with an experienced league manager, OR a motivated success from the lower leagues and an overwhelmingly new squad is what is needed. The need to rebuild a completely new team is a challenge many managers would jump at.

At a tough financial time such as this I can hardly demand we increase our playing budget, but solid funding is clearly needed to compete. Not squandering the playing budget on 267 hopeless shirt-thieves would be a start, but this will mean addressing who is in charge of recruitment. If strict limits on playing numbers can be set, with some intelligent recruitment, then the budget really may be made to work as it is. It is not essential the budget be increased, just used better. I absolutely do NOT want to go through this kind of shit again.

Honestly this season already seems like a bad dream. Westley coming back, declaring he would get us in the Championship by Easter (he definitely said that) and getting fucked off five minutes later. Signing a winger on loan who couldn't get into a Conference side who somehow ended up being our first choice left back and seemed to be one of the players who cared the most at Crewe. Bringing back Parrett and getting about two decent games out of him? Nugent going from one of the divisions top centre backs to apparently being lobotomised. Kenners and Sonupe playing their way out of the squad and then getting back in for banter. Russell Slade. Signing a load of bad children to try and get out of it. Simeon Jackson.

Did any of that shit really happen?

I'll drink to that. Hope we never endure another season like this. But history suggests it is very difficult to completely rebuild a squad in one go and be successful, unless you have a small fortune to throw at it.
I would be reluctant to go with Revs. It may seem unfair but the percentage call for me is someone from the very top end of non-league on the way up.
Looks like we have a chance we clearly don't deserve. Please don't blow it, Phil.

I think we need a majority rebuild. Keep maybe 6 or 7 players with the right attitude and replace the rest.

We then need some stability, establish ourselves as a mid table side and that is likely to be achieved with a manager who isn't spectacular but has years of experience in league 2 or similar. A steady pair of hands.

Sampson has been a manager for over a decade and he now has Football League experience.

Can we have a new rule please. No former Players or coaches or Managers.
Time for a fresh start with new ideas from an experienced league Manager and a squad of say 17/18 decent L1/2 level players. Plus a bit of Boro youth and only just a couple on non league gambles maybe in the Jan window, with a couple of PL loanees youth added in. Pay the going rate for the boss and a physio and you'll save money in the long run Phil. Oh and ditch that bl**dy Raindeer and # weRcrap slogan. A return to Back to Pride Passion Ambition please.

People criticised Sarll a lot (deservedly) but I knew how he worked, how he wanted to play, the plan going forward. I could buy into it. Therefore I had trust in him. I don’t think we’d be where we are now if we didn’t sack him

I want to have that again. Maybe it is Revs, maybe it’s a young up and coming manager, maybe it’s experience.

Just make the plan clear.

I love Revs and I genuinely believe he’ll be a top manager. Maybe with us. but was he even asked how he’d change things when he got the job. Doubt it. Even dino in his interview on The Coaches voice said Phil rung him up and said “Blimey Dino, you do a lot of winning, I want a bit of that”. Is that the only requirement to get the job? Win games elsewhere? Unsustainable and all be it unattractive model to join

That period of 13 or so games where we kept on winning was the best football i've ever seen from a Boro team. We just battered the opposition week in week out for a good solid 2 months, was just a shame we ran out of steam.
