    I watched the ‘First, Best, Worst’ interview with Taylor last night where he was asked the best player he’s played with and he said Harley was easily the best player he’s played with at City so he obviously rates him highly.

    It depends on who we release effectively but I would suggest we need two wingers to supply Stockley with, a striker who can make up a decent partnership with Stockley (I still reckon Tommy Nichs is the best man for that job) and a right back to push Sweeney along.

    Lee Holmes should be back and firing on all cylinders for pre-season now he has had his ankle operation perhaps he won't be so injury prone, great crosser of the ball and scores goals.

    Didn't Watkins and Stockley score loads playing together? Obviously not Watkins, but an attacking midfielder who drifts around behind Stockley would be my preffered choice rather than an out and out striker. Saying that, I'd still like to see him tried with a poacher type.

    Even Exminster is too far, he should live in a caravan at C&F!

Another season with us would benefit all concerned IMHO, although I suspect Jonah will want away.
    Jonah's not our player. He is on loan.

    I like Lee Holmes , as I do Macalinden, when they are fit and on form but I doubt that they give value for money. Tough decisions to be made with these two if their contracts are up.

    On his day Holmes is a quality performer however how many of those days has he had in the last two seasons ?? Too injury prone, probably time to move on.

    The first injury wasn't far short of 'assault' by the Cardiff player in the PSF.

    True remember it well mostly Cardiff youth supposedly trying to impress Warnock but what a team of cloggers.
