Although we have had 2 great results we have lacked a lot this season,

1. We did not appeal Neilson's red card so we lost him for the 1st 3 games,

2, We have lacked in the strikers role, only 3  on the books and now 2 injured,

3. We have let strikers leave who are now scoring regularly,

4. We had a striker on trail who since we released him has scored 3 goals at this level,

5, We signed a really pacey winger who we have tracked for 2 years but do not start with him,

The common denominator is ?

When John-Lewis leaves he'll probably score 30 a season elsewhere. Footballs full of players proving former clubs wrong,

You don't really believe that. He's never proved any former club wrong.

Christ on a bike, yet another "Let's have a bash at Hurst" thread.

It is now reaching the height of ridiculousness that the failure to sign Ironside is seen as a mistake when he looked pretty hopeless when on trial with us! I can only imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth that would have gone on here if we'd signed him, especially after we had signed Clay who was apparently going to be our worst ever midfielder, if you believe some of the comments on this board.

Other than the ineffectual Connell, our strikers who have played in most games have scored 4 and 3 goals respectively which is decent enough return. Ironside is obviously doing well enough for Alfreton but has also started all but one of their games. The simple fact is that, if we had signed him, he'd be getting a chance now, but probably wouldn't have made a start otherwise because he would have been further down the pecking order than the other senior strikers.

Also, let's have a dig for not playing Mackreth even though the general consensus is that he's been pretty disappointing in his performances so far! You can't have it both ways.

Yes but who did we sign instead of Ironside.

David Soames scored 11 at the weekend for Dog and Duck XI, can't believe that bald twat Slades let him go.

Yep, don't disagree that it's an error for us not to have signed at least one other striker before now.
