When I saw the bain of my footballing life had left a couple of days ago I let out the loudest scream of happiness I have had for years followed by a out of body experience that we had actually 'sold' him for money as well no matter how much it ended up being........

Always tried hard and seemed to care but literally sucked the life out of me watching the 'nearly man' every weekend. The chap litterally is 'nearly' good at everything but isn't good enough at anything to be a professional footballer. He clearly has a good football brain but without the ability to make it work for him.

Good luck at Forest Green Rovers or should I say good luck FGR fans you will need it.......

So. Is 007 going to explain the difference between a holding midfielder and a defensive midfielder?
Your question can join the queue.

It’s been over a year since 007 was asked the true value of Ollie Watkins, when he announced that the club had got it wrong. It’s a simple answer, but he was never prepared to give it.

Turns out it is because the rest of us are ignorant. Who”d have thought it?

Back on topic, the idea of L James esq as a defensive midfielder is laughable. So many replies on this thread are spot on.

99 games for City and only a handful when he looked like a decent player. Most of the rest he wasn’t up to scratch. His corner kicks sum him up - always in vaguely the right area, but never led to a goal, instead set up a counterattack.

As for Mark Cooper, he seems to be pursuing a plan of getting rid of nearly all of his promotion team and replacing them with L2 standard players. It may keep them up but it is hardly the best recipe for promotion. I can’t see James bringing anything other than league experience. Let him take the corners. We did well to get a fee for James. A swap for Doidge was too much to hope for.

Where has this meme that James always tried hard/gave his all come from? - like many of Tisdale's pet faves, he rarely, if ever, bust a gut for the team.

Pretty much par for the Aaron Davies course.
