So Ollie has said he is desperate for another striker. And that he will (almost begrudgingly it would seem) give Montel Gibson a try upfront to help Green. Montel Gibson a striker we signed this summer on a 3 year deal.

Yet for weeks now I’ve not seen or heard anything of Ira Jackson (2 year deal) and Touray Sisay (1 year deal) two other strikers we signed with apparent high hopes and excitement this summer. Where are they? Why areant they involved? Surely seems a waste of resources in this current climate signing players we areant going to use?

And if they areant fit yet, why not? Two relatively young lads who have played semi pro given 2 months to get fit? Surely ready for the bench at least?

I may have missed something and happy to be put in my place but something doesn’t quite seem to add up?

Does seem odd that neither of them are even making the bench under the current circumstances.

What seems odd to me is that although they played non-league football, and only trained at most twice a week, they were still able to play full matches once or sometimes twice a week too.
So why are they both not even fit enough to make the bench.
Considering match after match Ollie bangs on about playing the youngsters.
Give Green a match off and throw Sisay in at the deep end up front, and at least stick Jackson Jnr on the bench for a 30 minute cameo.

Jackson has only ever been part-time as far as I know and so won't be anywhere near as fit as the Town juniors. He's also only used to playing against part-timers, so he will have a long way to go.

I'm not being funny but the juniors can't be that fit for a number of reasons.

They aren't physically developed and they are sat in a classroom at school for 30 hours every week so I would expect the likes of Jackson and Sisay to be fitter than them.

In fact, Jackson claims to have trained like a pro despite being part-time.

Fully accepting that these two lads may take a bit of time to get up to speed.  

But there's absolutely no chance that they should be fitter than a lad who's just entered his final year at school.

Surely, that's what we bought them for , isn't it?  I was completely confused.  If it's down to fitness only they should be on the bench.  We could have done with some fire power last weekend.  They couldn't have done much worse than Taylor.  A patient straight off a CVOD ward would have put more effort in.

Have to agree with you all. And I’m sorry but if I’ve just joined a club off the back of a pretty prolific scoring record at a lower league club and I’m chomping at the bit to play league football for the first time I’d be doing everything in my power every day to get fit. What else is there to do every day if they are now “full time pro’s”?! And surely having a 15 year old picked ahead of me would be a kick in the teeth / extra motivation?

At what stage does it become Holloway’s mistake bringing them in if not capable to play?
