Agreed. As I’ve mentioned on here previously, if they are significantly worse than Green then what’s the point in signing them? Waste of money

Why feel bad for Gibson, he looks like he is clearly up to it to me, Ollie seems to think he's deserving a start too from the last interview.

Throw him in I say, he's like 23, give him a run of games not 10-15 mins here and there

Quoted from Henryscat
With Boyd only being 15 is there a limit to how many times we can pick him in the squad legally?

Maybe Ollie is doing this early to allow the others to get “up to speed” whilst training full time.

I don’t know the answer to the dilemma but I do have faith that Ollie knows what he’s doing.

I’m still not ruling out the experienced striker he wants to bring in yet either.


I don't think there's a limit to how much he can play, but obviously we need to put his best interests first.

I believe there's a bit of interest in him from big clubs and I'm wondering if Ollie is trying to increase his value when it goes to a tribunal by putting him in matchday squads. It will also help his confidence and development by being around the first team squad for games and is a reward for his good goal, even if it was more likely a one off than likely to be a regular thing.

It sends a message that you will get played if you are good enough. It would hopefully push the value up too but if it makes a couple of talented kids stay here a bit longer because they believe we are actually good for their long-term development then I am all for it.

I don't think Boyd can sign a pro deal until he's 17 so we've got a vulnerable year. The system picks up talented academy kids. Adam Drury was at Man City and currently plays for Grimsby Borough, Lewis Collins was at Reading and is now at Gainsborough via Cleethorpes Town. By playing Boyd and giving him an appetite for life around the first team, we are increasing the chances of someone coming in. If they do though, you hope the tribunal price is now pushed up but it also increases the chance of those advising him and other kids on our books that staying here is the best thing for their career.

When Pollock goes, that will help us too because it shows that we are a great platform for promising youngsters.

Just let the manager manage. He knows the players and their capabilities better than we do.

It's more feeling bad because he has scapegoat written all over him. People were already turning on him after the last game so I don't think it's long before he becomes the whipping boy however unfair that may be. Of course he's up for it but he has a lot to learn and it's hard to do that under pressure with fan rage destroying your confidence.

Who was turning on Gibson? He did well when he came on.
