Roberts didn't kick a ball for Wolves. He scored 6 for Torquay on loan, and only scored 1 goal for City on loan. Both in the 3rd Division.
Lambert wasn't Rochdale's top scorer, Grant Holt was.
Taylor may have scored 7 in 8 for Chester but he'd never scored in the Football League.
Nichols has, I just think it's wrong to write somebody off after 20 games, as the other players mentioned hardly pulled up any trees in their first 20 odd games for us either.
It looks like I misread Wiki Roberts scored 6 goals in 14 games for Torquay, Lambo scored 22 goals in his last full season for Rochdale, if Holt scored more they must have had an hell of a season. Regardless for every Roberts & co there's a James & White.
Holt scored 14 according to Wiki. Seem to remember Lambert was the divisions highest scorer in the season before we bought him.
I think we could get relegated. We are to inconsistent and our defence is clueless and simply just not good enough to seriously challenge in this league. I wonder what Clarke does in training defensively? He is a walking talking disaster. The only way of getting promoted in this leauge is to spend big like Southampton did in thier short stay in Leauge 1. We also need a decent a stadium and training facilities.
I've been watching the Gas since 1987, but didn't see any games between 1996 and 2006.
Going on the football that I have seen, the players who had that little bit of extra class can make up nearly a whole team:
GK: Nigel Martyn RB: ? LB: Vaughan Jones CB: Steve Yates CB: Steve Elliott RM: Billy Bodin CM: Ian Holloway CM: Chris Lines LM: Dennis Bailey CF: Rickie Lambert CF: Marcus Stewart
Can't ever remember a classy right back! Any suggestions? Could Dennis Bailey play left wing? I really want him in the team, but let's be honest, Ollie would have to work bloody hard in that team! Maybe the balance is not quite right
Paid £8 for Molineux on tuesday.Nice short trip for us.Third defeat in a row and low crowd for Blackpool I fear.Please be aware of major roadworks at Oldbury fly-over for tuesday. Going back to thread title ,I see Harltley not featuring for them so guess he's injured again.
Christian Doidge from FGR? 23 goals so far. Ex Rovers youth and DC tried to sign him before he went to Dagenham. Aged 24 and 6ft2. Ticks a lot of boxes and presumably fits DCs criteria as he went for him before.
