No-one has said osborne is leaving, no-one has said they want osborne to leave, what has been said is THEY dont think he will start many games and THEY dont think he is a slade player..All could be completely wrong and was just a discussion..nothing more.

P.s me including in THEY

Quoted from Heisenberg


(remember, the York fans couldn't believe he'd done it....)



Actually, most York fans were saying Berrett was a great signing and their standout player in a bad season.

I'm sure him and Summerfield don't really care about the opinions of York fans though...they're playing in League 2 whilst York are two divisions below.

I think if summerfield played as normal midfielder rather than a holding midfielder he could be quite useful for us..20+ games I think he could score 5 or so goals for us..I dont think hes that bad a player as some others do.

I have to agree with sigone, I don't think Summerfield is nearly as bad as some on here make out.

He made a few misplaced passes in dangerous areas in the first few months of the season (most if not all of them didnt result in goals conceded anyway) but he was contributing to a midfield and a team that was in and around the play offs. He doesn't hide, even after said misplaced passes, he'd still get on the ball at the next opportunity and try and pass it again.

And he puts a shift in- which again disproves the "as long as they put in 100% we'll back them" malarkey that often gets spouted on here.

I don't think either of them are 'bad' players, I just doubt they're quite what we need if we want to improve on last season.  I thought Summerfield played pretty well at the games at Blundell Park early last season (Stevenage, for example), but the games I didn't go to, especially the away games, people were scathing of him.  General consensus seemed to be that he was awful.  I just think him and Berrett are 'OK', which isn't gonna be enough.  I'm sure that all 24 teams have 'OK' players.  The one thing that we as fans will never, ever stomach again, is a relegation battle in League 2, the risks are too high.  We need to get into League 1 in the not-too-distant future and put as much of a gap between us and the Conference as is humanly possible!

FFS! Let Berrett have a chance in his preferred position rather than stick him on the left wing because we've got no-one else. Hurst signed him and then played him in a role that was clearly uncomfortable to him so The Fishy decides he's excrement and should never play again. I don't think there's much between Clements and Berrett as centre mid - I don't believe either are good enough to take us up - but if James Berrett starts at Chesterfield then he'll get my support.


Give him a chance.....do you not think he has had opportunities ? Rarely do football fans agree but he has had plenty of appearances and i think the majority of people are not convinced he is of a standard that we require to push forward. Regardless of where he plays you can guage certain things about a player, because in football there are only so many things that you do as key elements of your game.
I have concerns about;

his pace
his tackling ability
his aerial ability
his strength
his passing ability
his vision

so i wouldnt want him in the engine room, the only attribute i can see he has is he tends to hold his position...but is that enough ?

Maybe i am missing something which is beyond my own level of technical understanding of the game but if that is the case, then i am not alone wallowing in ignorance.
You say you would give him your support if he runs out Chesterfield but i bet inside your heart would drop when the team was announced and Berrett was starting centre mid.

I definitely do NOT remember this!
