I keep saying this but I never expected to see him until late October.

Cannot get my head around the way he’s started the season. Shows an enormous amount of character. Long may it continue.

He has really impressed me, looks like the sort of player that never leaves anything on the pitch as they say.

He's definitely lost abit of pace which is understanding considering the injury.

First time I'd seen Town this season yesterday and though overall the attitude was good last season it seemed even better yesterday and players like Whitehouse are great examples of that..

Think he optimises the type of player we've missed for so long. His attitude, commitment and passion on the pitch for me is disley esque.
He's constantly talking to everyone round him, he leads and helps others. I know it's really early days but I'm really liking him so far.
If he gets to Xmas and shows consistent form I'd give him another 2 years. Even be tempted to reward his commitment during his injury by giving him an extra year now. He was signed to play for 2 years so let him have the chance.

I guess when you’ve got him and Hess in midfield and the crop like Clifton who grew up in the club you can understand why MJ was happy to give Macca (who deserves it) the armband.

Think a lot of teams might have midfields with more guile and creativity than us but I doubt any will battle harder or cover  more ground than our 3.

Bradford are one of the favourites and have a midfield up there with any in terms of style and creativity , yet our  team of grafters played the ball around them for a good chunk of yesterday.

I don't think they are getting the credit they deserve.

I have two slight concerns with the squad as it is. Firstly, our midfield, although all work horses and overflowing with energy legs, maybe lacks that bit of je ne sais crois, a bit of creativity and guile. We’ll never get overrun or out worked in there and against better sides we may thrive given I see few sides being as fit, quick and enthusiastic as us. It was noticeable how we didn’t tire or drop deep yesterday. However, when sides eventually work us out, which they will I think we need some more variation in our attack. We’ll score oodles of goals from set plays and crosses in for Hanson and Green to feed on I think though. The other area is the lack of depth, if Ludwig’s concussed, and he doesn’t sign anyone, it’s Matty Pollock on Tuesday and if one of our midfielders gets injured, you’re looking at playing Ring as Hewitt will move into midfield I guess. The squad needs another centre half (begging for Luke Waterfall) and another creative central midfielder. Jolley’s clearly identified that if you’re quicker, fitter and bigger than the opposition in this league (because of a lack of quality) you can cause all sorts of problems with set pieces and balls into the box. Waterfall would add further to this because he’d add to aerial dominance in both boxes and that’s where it counts. Last season we were often very pretty and got into decent positions but never had the quality to fashion opportunities or finish them. This season we seem to have a different style which suits the players better.


Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.
