I’d say it’s been a real mixed bag. We have looked better under the last 2/3 games at home under askey and more attacking. But far worse away from home imo. I think he’s a tactacially decent manager who sets us up quite well and organised again for the most part. But it seems there is no plan B. When we try something else it seems to fail miserably. My biggest issue and I’ve mentioned it basically every single match is his use of the subs. It’s far too negative. Saturday was another example of this. You have pope, archer and Cullen on the bench, nothing is happening in the game so change it. Change the system and try to take the three points instead of being happy with one or waiting until they score and then change it.
Signings have been ok, archer for me looks looks the pick of the bunch but isn’t getting a look in. Again the other criticism for me was askey signing too many non league players that simply are not good enough and we have seen that particular with Lloyd and Kennedy.
Happy with where we are in the league table but so so frustrated, it feels that in the macc, Stevenage and Oldham game if we had just taken it to them and made some offensive subs we could and should be sitting higher than we are. League looks extremely average, still think I’ve only seen Plymouth down the vale who looked half decent!
Finish where we are at the end of the season we’ve done well and imo progressed not what some would call progression where we finish 16th...
if we are 5 points off the play offs come January I’d like to think askey is given a bit of money to have a go at it this season. We’re only 1/2 players off. Overall a mixed bag on askey. Decent manager and the best since Adams imo (not saying a lot) but needs to improve on his subs!
