Summerfield is abit of a Michael Leary type. A real trier who is forgiven much because of that, but ultimately not good enough.


Good enough for what? Our current situation/level or a romanticism for the Buckley era? Remember we didn’t secure safety until injury time in the penultimate game last season.

The manager who’s better informed than we are thinks he’s good enough as he’s offered him a new deal that speaks volumes for me.

Michael Leary is one of the worst players ever to pull on the famous black and white shirt so your comparison is ludicrous.

A good player is Summerfield; in a better team he would be very useful. I hope he signs but what will be will be.

Leary makes summerfield look like ronald koeman.


I don't think they look anything alike!

It's this comment that makes me wonder why some on here are delighted we have signed or have offered to sign several of the mainstays of last season which for the vast majority was excrement.

I think Jolley knows which players he got the best out of and that he can work with. It's important he doesn't change everything at once because it takes new teams 10 games plus to gel. Let's remember the same players that nearly got us relegated for a time last year flirted with the play offs early doors. If Jolley has identified those that could do that then well done.

Or some of the mainstays who were top of the form table by the end of the season? Only opinion I know, but I'd love to be told which outfield player was better than Summers last season.

I'd be surprised, maybe even a little disappointed if we've offered LS a two year deal. He was one of our better performers last year, in an obviously excrement season, but I think for his performances and effort in the last 10 games especially, he deserves a space in the squad. 1 year with an option in the club's favour to extend would be the way I would go.

But he's 30 and I'm sure he will be looking for a 2 year deal somewhere. If it's to be believed, MJ is clearly looking for players to move this way as well, then I can see why he want 2 years.

I've no idea where LS lives but if it's fairly local, he's settled and there aren't that many other offers forthcoming, he may have to settle for a year or a year with an option. Though he was one or our better performers last year, I don't think he did enough to earn a more attractive contract offer than a year with an option ro extend.

I get why he's been offered a two year deal (if true). I think the Stacy Coldicott comparison is a good one. Every team needs a water carrier. Niven was a good comparison too Maringer.
