Mine practicly the same but replace omiyinmi with abbey or Haworth. Can't see omiyinmi being in there after a game. Id also put Prothers in midfield, for owen or perkins, stick Gledhill at right back.

 

Any chance of us spending some of that hard earned cash and buying Essandoh and/or prother, as i must say they did impress me greatly.

I just think that manny will prove to be a legend and we will be wanting him permanently as we do big Roy! Evans and Pennock are just in there cause I rate them. Otherwise it prob would be Duku & Abbey

Shows you how far we've come this season when at one time the thought of leaving Walshe and Haworth on the bench would've been unthinkable!!

Pretty much agree with Sqwark although I would fit Miller in the squad.

 

Could get both Essendoh & Provs on a free at the end of the season. Unless they are made offers we can't compete with. I know Provs is very keen to join us and really enjoyed his time at the Fleet. Unless Canvey make him an offer he can't refuse, I believe he will sign for us. He wants to play and not sit on the bench or play in the reserves week in week out. I see he wasn't even on the bench for them on Sat.

I hope so, Paulo, and that the rumour I heard of Bryco-Hornchurch offering Proths full-time football is just that, a rumour!

Lee Turner

 

Miller Trott Gibbs

 

Daly Bone Goodwin Hogg

 

Meah

 

Kumbur Huggins

 

 

 

To be honest, i thought Trott was gonna be an excellent signing- him and Moore would have been class together.

Trott was released due to injury - I believe he is back training with a view to signing in the summer.

 

Dave might know better as it was Jimmy who told me this!

Can't and wont comment on any of your team except to say that even the bare fact or thought of having manny in your team should prompt you to include him in your best team as he is by far the best player with class that you now have on your books. He is invaluable and will do you proud.Get him playing as he is wasted on the bench.As a margate fan shouldn't be saying this as it will help your cause but he IS an exceptional player and will do himself justice.Nice guy too.

Heh heh - the Ghost Team. I'd find it hard to argue with CC's XI, it's a world-class outfit.

And I'd forgotten all about the signing of the season, Scott Goodwin!

Given that we play over 50 games in a season, which everyone agrees is too many for any player to play in all games, a big squad is vital. If every player can play at 110% for say 30 games in a year, it means that in 2/5 he will either be on the bench or simply not in the 16. ALL our players must merit a place in our best team. To progress further, we must forget the attitude that we have a best starting 11, and assume that any team replacements are for players suspended, injured or simply out of form, and are as good as the player they are replacing.

Gone should be the days at 5 to 3 when the call goes out from the terraces "Why is he playing, he's not as good as *****."

it is a good theory,but not yet the case with us.As much as I would like to feel as confident with any fleet player playing instead of another, I don't.

O'reilly never played aswell as wilko has this year.

Duku is no mooro or shears.etc.

Some players are excellent replacements for injuries etc,but not quite first teamers.

i have to admit before i started following the Fleet more regularly, Duku was talked about as a real prospect. But, from what i've seen (except Margate away) he's looked very poor and mediocre. Also he must be the slowest black man i've ever seen! No racist offence intended.
