I think James and Kelly have been great together during the last two games. Problem will be keeping them both fit.Yeah I edited
If James was coming in to do the Kelly role and we were releasing Kelly, maybe. But we seem to still need Kelly in doing Kelly things while James is in the team, which makes me question why we need James.
He had a lot of injury problems in his youth at West Ham & Arsenal but thought his last couple of loans showed he was over them. Could be wrong but think they've usually all been different injuries too?I seem to remember that there may have been a question mark over his medical when he came
So he joined on loan initially with an obligation to buy if the area of concern didn't recur
I think playing two deep lying players is a sticking plaster that hampers our progress. We've got two men doing the job of one and if neither are up to doing it on their own I'd get rid and find someone who is. We need the attacking impetus a Walsh or a Hamer gives you in that position, or it's all down to O'Hare to link midfield and attack.I think James and Kelly have been great together during the last two games.

You certainly lose something when you play 5 defenders and 2 or 3 defensive midfielders,I think playing two deep lying players is a sticking plaster that hampers our progress.

If we had a decent defence the back line shouldn't need quite so much protection either.
How did you enjoy our L1 promotion season - with 1 upfront?He was shitting himself 541 at home to Wycombe and defending draws when a positive change would of had us more points ? I also came out and openly give him credit for this past couple of weeks how he’s changed it to go more positive,it’s also clear to see I’ve never been a fan of 1 up front
Can't see him signing him can you ?Asked for an update on Sheaf’s longer term future beyond this season, Robins said: “We’ll cross that bridge at the end of the season.”
Disagree. Immediately maybe not, but as we have this model of sustaining the club through development I think he’s a good signing. Certainly better in that respect than Kelly or James. He topped all the stats in L1, just like Walsh. He’s young. There’s a player in there we can bring on. I’d put him significantly ahead of Eccles who I’d guess is the other option for a development CM.Can't see him signing him can you ?
Personally and I know some disagree , it would be a good decision for us to get out of this deal
I'm at a point where I don't know what to feel about sheaf , when we were doing poorly I briefly pined for his return but besides that I can't say I've truly missed him
Our entire team got caught in possession first half of the season. Players improve, especially younger players. Besides we’ve shown you the stats on his ball retention and it’s as good as anyone else’s.Doncaster said he got caught in possession a lot there he’s far too slow in possession he needs a rocket up the arse & to smile more
Call me when Shippers defensive stats and passing range is close to Sheafs.How much can you improve a 23 year old though ..I think that's the key question .
Probably 4 / 5 years off his peak
When you look at Jordan Shipley we all question how much further he can go because we can see it ... do you see sheaf becoming something much more as a player
The club will do what it thinks is best
I said the same about Stevenson.Call me when Shippers defensive stats and passing range is close to Sheafs.
I’ve got to be honest, in a pure football sense I’d take Kelly or James, they have a bit more nous for that role. If we spend the £600k or whatever elsewhere I won’t be crying, but I like him as a player and I think he’ll end up around Championship level. Though I thought that about Ben Stevenson.
