So , where are all those on here that said the first thing KC would do in the January window is sign a keeper ?
Itís more likely we get an offer for our keeper

Oh dear hope not. Whats your opinion on this Clarence in Defence?

Lewis Ward has gone back - Not that he actually played or even made the bench recently

I'm not sure many said it would be the first thing he would do - but have patience dear boy.

It will happen!

I think you're wrong dear boy  Grin

Cornell has proved this season that he's good enough and with Coddington and Goff as back up we are fine. In the summer it may change because both Coddington & Goff are out of contract and if one or both are released a new goalkeeper or two will be required.

Sensible move, frees up a loan place if we should need up and reduces wage bill still further.

Taylor is a much maligned player; did ok for us last year in L1 and is not a bad player. If KC continues to play him then he is a better judge of a player than most on here.The exception on here however is 2 or 3 experts who know better than most of us. Some of the criticism aimed at Taylor is based on a a false percetion; all other issues are ignored. Just a stampede of headless chickens so eager to jump on the anti Taylor bandwagon. The same fate befell Cornell, then Crooks, then Facey, Hoskins, vV and also people forget the criticism which Pierre endured last season.

The same fate befell Cornell, then Crooks, then Facey, Hoskins, vV and also people forget the criticism which Pierre endured last season.

People (generally) will comment on a players current performances, not ones displayed previously. For example Facey. He's been utter useless in recent weeks/months, on Saturday he was superb. When he first joined he was really decent and looked like a cracking signing.

Cornell has totally turned things around and has now become one of my favourite players; you see, thats because in my eyes he's been playing well. When a player is playing badly (like Taylor has) I do not want to see them in the side.

Whatever the reasons, last season KVV was sh1t. Utter sh1t. He wanted to leave. And did so at the first opportunity. He scored 4 goals from open play, terrific.

With regards to Crookes, Ill say it again. The wages he would have been on made him poor value for us. He was incredibly talented but also equally inconsistent; he's not what I would call a '7 out of 10 player'. He's either 4, 5 or 9. That isn't a good thing in my mind.

With regards to Taylor, I've just got to say that 'I don't get it'. I don't get why he gets picked. Last season he was arguably very decent in a lot of peoples judgement (player of the season) but this time round he's been a liability. His presence seems to have a detrimental effect on his team mates, in particular the young ones.

Finally, Hoskins. Subjective. I get that. I like the kid, always have done. But I understand why he frustrates alot of people.

*FINALLY. THIS POST IS MY PERSONAL OPINION, AND NOT THAT OF THE SUPPORTERS TRUST*

I was much maligned last year when I said that Taylor was not our best player, his poor attitude and abysmal distribution invited on pressure and increased pressure on those around him in already high pressure situations.

Taylor is a defender where if you put together a highlight reel on all his last minute blocks and tackles he looks world class, but that does not tell the full story. I think he is far from captain material and is often in poor positions. This probably comes form his lack in faith in those around him and feeling like he needs to do it all himself but the crooks of it is we are considerably worse with him in the team.

Taylor and Pierre can't play with each other. Taylor improved after Pierre was injured for the season, and now Pierre is looking better with Taylor out the side. That's how I see it anyway.

Cornell is good enough if we want to finish bottom half yes.

Depends if KC wants to write this season off and start again properly in the summer.

If he thinks/wants to have play off ambitions this year then he will sign a keeper either perm or on loan who will allow us to kick on.

You are self confessed member of the Trust Board; admirable stance. However in my view it is perhaps best to avoid making contentious comments when in your position. You merely incite the more unscruplous on here.
Best to post as a Guest and hope you are not identified. Evil

Your form on judgement of players is no better than mine Shocked and in a few instances worse Wink Other than that thanks for at least identifying grounds no better than Sixfields.

Depends if KC wants to right this season off and start again properly in the summer.

If he thinks/wants to have play off ambitions this year then he will sign a keeper either park or on loan who will allow us to kick on.

Have you been on the afternoon sauce again?

I still think he played ok in L1 and QPR supporters thought he looked on the day championship material. You maybe right in some of your criticism; again its all about opinions. Must admit I like Taylor.

Turnbull and Pierre are way above the level of Taylor. I'd rather see Jay Williams play alongside those two week in week out over Taylor, and he's still very raw and likely to make mistakes - but probably still not half as many as Taylor.

The problem is Taylor is in big wages and no one will match them .
He also lives and travels from Merseyside .
He will be difficult to shift .
