Mackreth played a blinder at Barnet,

So if he can do it there,

He can do it anywhere,

Exactly. What winger would be so stupid as to deliberately hang back, make easy short passes inside and backwards and not attack his full back regularly if he wasn't "doing a job"?



Pretty much all the ones I can remember from recent years, truth be told! Wingers tend to get criticised for what they fail to do than what they actually achieve and I can only really remember Rodman from the past few seasons as a winger who almost always attacked the full-back. Of course, his problem was that he never crossed the bloody ball often enough! If you remember back a couple of seasons, Coulson was often criticised for failing to take on his full-back often enough when he was at the club.

I certainly think that Mackreth has been less of a threat for us than I expected when he joined at the start of the season, but I don't necessarily agree that this is down to following team orders. Fundamentally, he doesn't look as quick as the player who caused us so many problems in past seasons and, though nippy, you rarely see him completely outpace any defenders (though he doesn't try often enough, IMO, either).

Ultimately, I think he's a decent enough player at this level though it would be nice if he was able to offer a little more going forward in addition to his workrate.

Thing is though, it was understandable when Parslow was RB but now Magnay is back again there is no real need for the winger to be  an auxiliary RB.



Have you had the same conversation with a player (now gone) as I had?

You would think so Pete but you would have thought it was a completely different team against Braintree.

Thinking about the past seasons Mackreth played against us, who were the  left backs he caused so many problems, could one have been a certain Mr Thomas ?.

Not too sure, really. Aswad certainly had plenty of pace so should have been able to cope with him in that respect.

Perhaps I'm just thinking of Lee Ridley getting a complete roasting from Mackreth at BP and assuming he was always good because of that one game!

Depends who we're playing and where, you'd think.

In a 4-4-2 system that Hurst favours then Mackreth doesn't really have any competition for his place. That's not ideal. I think he's done ok personally. I don't really favour 4-4-2, unless we absolutely have to so he probably wouldn't be starting that many games if it was up to me, but what do I know?

Townsend was the player who couldn't get near Mackreth. Might as well have played with 10men
