Rankine is never going to make it at Premier League level and runs down a lot of blind alleys.

I do think there is a player in there somewhere, but will need some good coaching which is evidently not available here at this current time.

He has a lot of pace, no question about it, but I struggle to see much else at the moment.

He's young and will improve, he's only 21.

If he is 21 and struggling in L1 I doubt very much that he is going to ever feature in Prem and probably not in the Championship either.

Compare with Stansfield who was clearly decent in L1 last season (at 19) and is now also decent in the Championship.

Like many others can't see us getting much from this. At least play 2 up top and have a go.
id like to see this as a 5-3-2 Move Sweeney into the middle of the 3 to combat his lack of pace!
Sinisalo
Rankine, Diabate, Sweeney, Hartridge, Jules
Cole, Kite, Trevitt
Niskannen, Wildschut

Still think we loose 2-0

And Carlisle are at home to Northampton - i fancy them for a win so they could go above us on goal difference.

At the moment every team In the league would go above us on goal difference...and all, bar Cheltenham, would also trump us on goals scored. 😭
(Incidentally Reading v Oxford tonight)

I've just seen the own goal by Barnet to Newport and wonder if Sinisalo could have a go at creating one in this game. 🙂

If hes got any sense, he would keep well clear of the vitriol and bile, and frankly, ***** written on here.

Do you really think he would be playing for a middling 3rd division team if he was the finished product?

Did you think stanno was the finished product last season, fulham certainly didnt nor do they this ...
If it helps, Rankine is awful. Runs around like a labrador chasing a ball in a field. Little step over, cut back, spin round, lose the ball, give up. When he eventually gets to the byline, he scuffs it to the first defender.

Not cut out for men's football at all.
