I note some of the criticism on twitter of the team/tactics/formation etc but frankly it is a bit ridiculous to blame anything other than the fact that we have totally run out of players.
Out of the finishing 11, Josh Davison, Ben Dempsey, Alfie Doherty, Albie Morgan are all totally inexperienced players who are at Conference level or in Albie’s case maybe League 1.
Chris Solly and Ben Purrington are no longer the first choice full backs. Darren Pratley is great but totally knackered, Deji Oshilaja is solid but not a first team player. Macauley Bonne was playing Conference last year. Lyle Taylor is not fully fit. We have to be honest with ourselves – effort and motivation is great but it will be almost impossible to win further games with this current team. Superhuman effort from the players and continuing fanatical support at The Valley will be vital for survival.
We are in desperate need of 5 or 6 new, fit , Championship level players NOW.
