It suddenly hit me the other day. 7 goals last season that weren't pens. His strengths aren't pace like Pittman, hold up play like Lenny or finishing like Pittman again. What are his qualities? Someone save me from my misery please.

Is he good enough for a promotion chasing conference team? Definitely can be, we've seen that. In his loan spell, and a handful of games since he's shown he can drag defences from left to right, he can make one or both centre backs worry where he is at all times...

What I would say though is not good enough, often enough. Sometimes he looks like he has a phobia of the goal... Think he has been cut a lot of slack from the fans compared to Lenny, and I hope he starts to find his form again because he could score lots of goals for us.

I know it wasn't a proper game, but he scored two on Tuesday night. I think he just doesn't partner LJL well.

I think if he'd been given the free run that Lennie has had he'd have bagged a lot more goals. Even just maintaining his actual strike rate it would've been an improvement, and that's not allowing for better form through being played consistently.

A clear example of mismanagement by Hurst.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Did I miss something or do pens not count anymore?

The problem with Hannah is that if he's not scoring, he's not really doing much at all. Not big, not quick, not strong on the ball, not a great touch though I can't fault his workrate in closing down the opposition players.

If he was more consistently capable of showing the finishing form of his loan period, he'd be a great player at this level. As it has stood over the past 18 months, he misses more really good chances than he scores. The last Torquay game is a case in point - in the second half (before the injury to LJL took us down to ten men), he missed two sitters which could have earned us a point following the poor first half performance.

The less said about his long-range free-kicks, the better, as I can't remember him even getting close.

Hopefully, his goals the other night will give him a bit of confidence to get him on a scoring run because you would certainly hope he'd be capable of getting near 20 goals in a season. It would be handy if he did hit some form so we didn't feel the need to rush Pittman back as well.

Where a game plan or tactics are designed to compliment Ross Hannahs strengths he will score  , unfortunately they aren't  . Like you say , the partnership you mentioned doesn't ,

Pittman and Lenny is definitely the best partnership at the club
