What are people hoping for/expecting before Monday at 5pm?
Personally I'm hoping Lillis goes out on loan or is sold, Don't think he's as bad as some suggest but he's clearly not in the Goalkeeping plans so best not to have a senior player sat in the stands.
I'd also like to see another defender, Centre back or left back or ideally a player who can cover both. Think it's the area we can be got at most, plus anytime Jim is asked to do anything that isn't strictly just defending he fills me with dread. Anytime he looks to play the ball out from the back, it seems like we are in danger.
If you look at the defenders in the Gibraltar Squad you will notice that a certain Scott Wiseman currently occupies their number 2 shirt. Appears to be the player playing at the highest level (possibly equal to the striker playing for Cadiz)
Basically he said, It's always good to get a win. There were positives and negative to the game. More positives than negatives though. Said both teams over played at times, don't know whether he meant us and blackburn or the first and second half teams. thought we were cut open too easily by Rovers a couple of times.
Wanted to give everyone 45 minutes but because there were 23 players it wasn't possible, thought Reece (Gray) did enough in the time he had on, as did Godwin. Want to get people playing full 90 minutes, otherwise the players conditioning will only be for 45.
Said we are a two games down on where we are supposed to be, going to try and organise another game maybe behind closed door, not sure though.
Decision on triallist next week after Hull game.
Matty Edward bone not healed right from surgery so will be out longer than expected, Cover needed.
Please defence kept a clean sheet, said we have some good defenders. Also said we had good defenders last year, but they didn't defend.
I understand he feels he needs to cut out the bad/unproductive element in the squad, but why does he insist on doing things by text message. It just make him come across as unprofessional and a bit of a knob.
Just trying to get my head around what the squad currently looks like. This is my understanding of the players we now have on the books (feel free to correct me if i have got anything wrong)
