Fine if we can get someone better. Until we know who the replacements are then we have to back the management team's judgement.

I'm a little shocked to be honest. Personally, I thought RHJ had the right physical attributes that we need, never looked that accomplished with the ball at his feet but could develop into a useful player. I may be in a minority but apart from two games Whitmore impressed me. Strongest defender we had, very aggressive, never bullied and our best defensive partnership all season was him and Davis. Be interesting to find out whether they left or weren't offered contracts. Apart from left back I thought we had the makings of a settled defence that could gel into something more solid next season. Let's not forget that Collins played thirty league games last season, so it has been very hard to assess the potential of centre-half pairings or trios. Up to now I think Ohman is excellent in the air but a little slow and suspect on the ground. Looks like it's going to be another summer overhaul rather than a few additions. If they've not been offered contracts and let go and we've retained the likes of Cardwell and Ring (fingers crossed he comes out of pre-season a better player), I'll be more than a little bemused..

Both Davis and Whitmore had options on contracts to sign, and MJ obviously prefers Davis, which I agree with.

Can see Whitmore at somewhere like Notts County next season

Very close call between Davis and Whitmore for me. Could have gone either way and I’m not convinced that Ohman is better than either.

Really? Our best run of the season was when Davis and Whitmore were centre backs then Davis got concussion and the following game Whitmore was sent off.

Ohman and Davis would always be ahead of Whitmore for me and RHJ would always be behind Hendrie so so would rather us sign better players that could potentially walk into the first team 11. With that in mind am not too disappointed and this gives Jolley more budget for new players.

At right back would like to see us try and sign Jack Grimmer, just been released from league one Coventry. When they were promoted he was in the league 2 team of year. Good defender and surprised he was released.
