Holmes is worth a punt as a squad player in my opinion. The times has has played this season his has looked a cut above the rest (although that's not to difficult!).

Would much prefer having Holmes on the bench to call upon in the last 20 rather hand Adams, Smith, Martin, Roberts etc.

Talk about sentiment gone berserk Roll Eyes His best time with us was the first. Then he ditched us for another at first opportunity! He is 33 with best years behind him! In the frequent appearances made, some of them for contractual purposes he has not shown much evidence of past glories if at all. Can you please indicate those games where he excelled? Frightened beyond measure that I have missed some obvious quality performance.

This is what happens when a famous player leaves a big club.
Reported on a local news programme in Los Angeles where there is a large expat population "Nicky Adams has left Northampton and joined Oldham". Nicky has an aunty living out there.

I think you’ve made up half a post in your head there?

Statement was he merits a place in the squad as when he has played he has looked a cut above the rest.

Nothing about excelling or being anywhere near his previous levels. 

In my opinion with the current squad, he is worth a punt.

Encouraging.

Morris good.
Miller good until injured.

Appleton says Lincoln are by far the better team and have dominate for all 45 minutes!!!!!!!

Perhaps we can read something into Marshall, Missilou and Martin being omitted from the 18 yesterday, unless injured maybe surplus to requirments. As in Adams case probably not likely to feature much in the rest of the season. Injuries to Miller and Sowerby could give the first 2 a reprieve.
We already have Marshall, Mills, Mc.Williams, Morris and Miller so we need to get rid of some players whose name starts with the letter M.

I wonder if we enquired about taking Goode back on loan, he doesn’t seem to be getting a look in at Brentford.

*Obviously before Jones and Sheehan signed up at the start of the month.

Interesting to see that Nicky played Left back for Oldham yesterday. Not left wing back, left back!  Sign a winger who gets you loads of assists and play him at left back, hmmm. Still, these football managers know more than us thick fans do eh!!

The cross he provided for their winner came from the right wing when he overlapped?

I appreciate your rhetoric and also your views on Goode and Ricky. Not sure how much sentimentality plays with KC and more to the point with KT. Most of us would like to see Goode here but its hardly realistic based on perhaps a somewhat whimsical view point. To me the most realistic targets are a right wing back, a decent cutting edge up front and now a defender to replace the injury prone Sheehan? At the moment would not jeopardize a free squad place in lieu of current shortages? Would you seriously?

I assumed he was at left back given the way the team was laid out on the report I read. So your saying he was at right back? Fair enough!

I guess if he set up the winner it was justified. Sill would play him as a winger in a 4-4-2 or in the position Wilder played him in. Maybe given his age and general fitness now, full back is best suited to him? Players tend to go backwards as they get older!

Either way, he cant do wing back. He's knackered after an hour in that position!

Again, you seem to have taken half a post and rearranged it to suit your debate.

Please reread the Goode post, which clearly states, I wonder if we enquired before we signed up two alternatives.

Reverting back to the Ricky debate, you've asked the same question again. My response / opinion remains the same, he merits a place in the squad. Feel free to ask again just incase my opinion changes in the next couple of hours.

We were 1-0 down at the weekend with 15 minutes to play, I'd be interested to hear yours and others thoughts about the order of attacking options we had from the bench. For me personally it would have looked something like below:

Rose
Chucks
BAS
Korboa

In my opinion Ricky would pose a greater threat to the opposition than 3 out of the 4 options we had. Hence I think he is worth having in the squad.

From what Ricky has produced for us so far since his return I fully understand why KC has not offered him a contract extension. As I said in a previous post he may still get an offer from us at the end of the transfer window if we still have a squad place open. It is also telling that no other club has come in for him including Southend where he said he wanted to go and their manager has stated they are currently not interested.

And what exactly have other members of the squad 'produced for us so far'? In my opinion, Ricky would have improved over the next batch of games. He is a quality player, always a goal in him, and 33 is not ancient.

If Miller has done him hamstring I would not be surprised to see Holmes back until the end of the season although I think Adams leaving says a lot about the chances of that happening.

You cannot keep a player because other team members have also not produced an acceptable level of performance. Ricky was out of contract and KC has started shipping out other players who have not made the step up in order that he can improve the squad. Judging by the performances of Morris and Miller (unfortunately injured) they do appear to be an improvement. We have 2 squad places free and possibly more players will be let go so lets see who else he brings in.
