I demanded Loft be dropped after one game in Autumn in which he hardly made a single pass but from that point on, I have consistently pointed out that the vast amount of problems he faced were usually being caused by poor systems of play and a lack of outlet balls.
3/10 in one game, yes. But can you mark a player down when he gets no clean ball and little movement alongside him? IF it ain’t his fault must surely get an average mark. ie) 6.
I doubt any player in the squad has worked harder but I’d still give it to Manny.
When I first saw him, it struck me that he was a great example of a player moving from non-league to league football. Probably nothing more.
I was wrong. This is a seriously good defender who is at least one division better than the division in which he now plays.
Even though Gilliead is such a superb player – as he has been messed about so much, I do not feel that we have seen the best of this terrific footballing unit. Even so – runner up IMHO.
