Things are starting to settle down a bit and the team is showing signs that they are gelling. How do you lot out there think things are progressing so far. Here’s my opinions and feel free to rip them to bits or agree. Goalkeeper. McLaughlin is probably our best acquisition of the season. He’s become a fans favourite and with Stryczk(?) coming through to be his eventual number 2 (Ruiter is ok for now) I’m happy with our keeper situation. Rating. McLaughlin. 8.5 Ruiter. 5.5 Back 4. Mike Baldwin has established himself as our number 1 central defender with Flanagan as probably his best partner. Loovens is ok to bring on but I doubt he will be here next season. Ozturk has had a fairly poor start but maybe with more games will improve. Baldwin. 8 Flanagan. 6.5 Loovens. 5 Ozturk. 4 The wingbacks/defenders. O’Video and Hume are both fine players and we are well served down the left. If we lose O’Video we still have James so the left is fine. The right isn’t so good as Love and Matthews are ok but not as good as those on the left. O’Video. 7.5 Hume. 7 James. Not enough games yet to rate. Matthews. 5.5 Love. 5 Midfielders. Here we have a good crop with Catts playing his best for ages. McGeogh will, I think, improve, Power is good at this level, Honeyman is ok but I think he was better last season. McGuire has been one of our best performers as well. Catts. 8 McGeoch. 6 Power. 7 Honeyman 6.5 McGuire. 8 Wings. Both McGeady and fans favourite Gooch are enjoying life down in div 1 and can both easily step up to the Championship level. McGeady. 7.5 Gooch. 8 Strikers. Only Maja has had a good run in the striker department and he has grabbed the opportunity with both feet. Wyke has been out injured almost all the time he’s been here. Sinclair, after a decent showing against Charlton, hasn’t really impressed and Duncan has yet to feature although I have my concerns about how he will be once he’s back playing. Will he have lost some speed and will he avoid some tackles because of his unlucky experiences so far. Of course I (we all) hope he’ll be as good as before but time will tell. Maja. 8 Sinclair 5 The young ‘uns seem to have a couple of live wires, Kimpioka (?) and Mumba look good. Jack Ross. He’s doing well and seems to be a good fit for us. Ross. 8 Stuart McDonald and. Charlie Methven. M&M Both have bought in to the club and are doing all the right things. M&M. 9 N’Dong and Djellybaby. Good riddance, learn from Catts and O’Video how professionals should behave. Both. 0 Apologies to any I’ve missed out. There you are then. What do you out there think?
