    Re: Robbie Simpson

    Why should we be trying to fit Homer in at centreback?Troy AH, James , Simpson , wonder if their wages would have covered a decent midfielder and centreback.What planet is Tisdale on.Then we wonder why Plymouth are steaming ahead of us when they seemingly have utilised every penny of the money spent on their squad properly.

    What he said

    1 goal in nearly 20 games & only 29 in his professional career - as mentioned before it takes some believing that Tisdale had watched him much before signing because his goal record alone is enough to tell you he wasn't going to be the player required

    I remember Tisdale saying in the summer "its nice to get the business done early this year "...after signing James, Simpson, Mac alinden, shocking business when we were crying out for a couple of full backs and a hard tackling midfielder, he has lost it altogether, has no pressure put on him, does not seem answerable to anybody, and should be put on gardening leave right away...like today !!

    I think it was mentioned when Simpson signed that their paths had crossed before something to do with when Tisdale was at Team Bath definitely a link somewhere anyway

    So what position/areas would you play him in then? Because I dont think he's good enough to play anywhere on the pitch.

    Its all very well saying 'he can win the ball in the air if directed well towards him' but thats like saying 'he could score if the ball was on the goal line and he was stood next to it' well come to think of it..........

    Your probably right - given Reid is "one of our own" and The club keeps telling us about nurturing players to sell on we may as well of given Reid a few games

    I give the chap 100% for effort every time I have seen him, but sadly about 25% for actual ability
