Agree with Cloudy, Chaos and louth_in_the_south.

At best would be an impact sub. Can remember him winning us a couple of penalties last season but that'd be the extent of any end product. Good work-rate and attitude it seems, but poor technically and lacks football intelligence.

I think if he was a regular starter there would soon be moans and groans of poor crosses, poor control, running the ball out of play or dribbling down blind alleys.

Good luck to him, hope he does well in the conference and enjoys getting some games.

Agree Tommy. Still can't believe he got a 3 year deal. What was Hurst thinking?

This.

Found him infuriating in recent cameos; failing to make runs, failing to keep up with play, failing to work well with fullbacks or midfielders.

He has pace and some strength and unfortunately that's about it. A (presumably cheap) gamble by Hurst that didn't work out.

Bit of a shame he hasn't had more of a chance, but, in the interests of accuracy - he was signed by Hurst, who promptly seemed reluctant to start him, as did Bignot, who also used him as an occasional sub, and the same goes for Slade. To make out that Slade has failed to coach him into an asset is just daft. Seems to me that all of the last 3 managers haven't really rated him enough to command a starting place in a middling L2 team, and therefore that the player himself probably isn't good enough at 27 years old, despite, IMO, looking quite an effective impact sub. Makes his 3 year contract look a a farce, and it wasn't Mr Slade who gave him that. It was your ear cupping Yorkshire jester Mr Hurst.


Possibly so but no more of a farce than the 2 year contracts given to Hooper, Kelly, Rose, Dixon or even the 1 year contracts given to Matt and Woolford.

Some say TB didn't have any end product but neither have most of the above.

That can apply to several of our players that Slade persists in playing.

This is the main issue for me. We're waiting for ALL the above to 'click'/to get fully fit/to give more than 1 decent performance. You can't build a successful team with so many spluttering performers.
Honestly, I wouldn't care if any/all of the above were let go today out and replaced, quite what Tom has done to be top of the list to go out is beyond me.

Seen him in cup, reserves and off the bench. Tracks back, works hard and gives defences more hassle than Hoops, Kelly, Woolford etc. Real issue is the long contract.

Football is an opinion based sport, and everyone has a different opinion.

Slade isn't keen on Bolly, and you can tell by his signings of Woolford & Kelly.

They are not fast wingers like Bolly, and he obviously dosn't like fast wingers.

I honestly believe Slade knows he messed up with Kelly, like a lot of managers do. they sign players and it just doesn't work out for one reason or another.
Hurst made plenty, Buckley made plenty, it happens

However if he shipped Kelly out, he would also get stick for signing someone and letting them go straight away...

Personally, I am losing a bit of patience with Slade. Seeing Woolford amble down the line with not a chance of beating his man Is a waste of a place. Kelly, well who knows but the signs are not good. I would have kept Bolly in preference to Kelly Dixon and Woolford and so I guess this speaks volumes about how I feel about slades recruitment policy UTM
