I don't think it's any co-incidence that his best games have come without playing with LJL. That's not a dig at LJL, it's not their fault they don't partner well but we all know Hannah can do it. We've all seen it and players don't turn Into bad players over night, I think he's been pretty poorly man managed too.


Poor man management? How? Hannah is not good enough, he's always offside and he offers virtually nothing to the team. I'd take Lenny every day of the week over Hannah (loan spell excluded).

Hannah is dropped after one poor game, very very often. How often do you see Lenny dropped after a poor game? Anybody in the right mind can see Hannah and Lenny do not work yet Hannah is always the one to suffer for it.

I wouldnt care if My Striker did sodomist all all match but popped up with goals ......As already said a striker like Hannah needs to get games to keep sharp in front of goal .

I dont feel ross as much as i would like him to be is capable of scoring sufficient goals to get us up the sharp end of the league in playoff/promotion positions. am not saying he doesnt have ability, as he does, but he does not have an all round game that sees him as a complete striker. Yes i know not everyone does have otherwise they would not be playing at conference level, but it would be easier to fit him in the team if he had other assets to his game, like a good long range shot, or be great in the air etc, but he simply doesnt have these in his locker. If i was a defender it would not take me long to work him out and nullify any threat from him, just drop off and give him the ball, and not let him turn you, or play a tight offside against him, I do feel like others have mentioned he has been short changed in that he has not had a run of games to boost confidence but as for others saying he cannot forge a partnership with LJL, then christ what do we work on in training, he is a pro and shouild be able to adapt his game (as well as the others, am not just singling him out). The likes of Pittman from what i have seen of him, and hearn did before his injuries was to score differnet types of goals, and creat chances for themselves,Am happy to be proved wrong here but ross is a bit one dimentional i am afraid and as such will not be a 20 goal a season striker.  Prove me wrong ross PLEASE !!!!!!!!!

I thought this was one of his strengths !
Ok his strikerate maybe poor but surely there's no doubt it's in his locker (close from long range before) and guessing it's only a matter of time...

Just imagine Hearn from two years ago in this side. Lenny would be the perfect partner.

I'm always a bit worried about where the ball's going to go when I see Hannah about to shoot from range! The one against Hyde was decent but I can't remember any other goals from outside the area?

My view is that because he's not the fastest guy out there, he ends up trying stealing a few yards which regually goes wrong with being often found to be offside. But to be fair, and this isn't meant as a snipe at LJL, I rate Hannah more than I rate LJL.

As i have said elsewhere recently...for actual game time on the pitch last season he averaged just about a goal every other game, a 1 in 2 strike rate...play him for 40 games......tadaaaah!!
Or.... sub him first, drop him for an off game, give him 15 minute cameos, give him 5 different partners to play with, hit long high balls to his head.... and then see if he can score 20!!


Yeah I think you make some good points.
