For me, Kris Taylor was clearly not good enough to take us up. The fact he's at Darlington would back up my opinion. Just because we failed to replace him doesn't mean it was a mistake to let him go.

 

Spot on.

 

He couldn't defend and allowed to many crosses in the box. Just because we can't get a decent left back defender reflects more on the management team. When replacing players you need to get in better players not worse seemed like a panic replacements to me.

I don't subscribe to the 'collins is gonna be a future world beater' group just as I never did with Pilkington(some fans vastly overrate the both of them). However he is by far our most versitile defender and probably skillful for this level too. He'd certainly be in my starting 11 most games!

 

I do tend to agree with cheeky though and never thought I'd say it but we miss Kris Taylor as much as he wasn't the greatest left back he was an outlet in that position and a steady eddy. I'd like to see Roe first before deciding he's complete poop though!

At the end of the day both Sheffield United youths were released by the then Sheffield United manager Micky Adams as not being good enough for a first year professional contract.....Roe the left back like

Raglan is a first year professional kid just out of the youth team and

not realistic cover at left back that was Green from the depths of non-league.

McCoombe and Collins have won promotion from this division as has

Owen....Kris Taylor has done so twice.....essentially a midfield playmaker Kris Taylor was a good professional and an intelligent player with a cracking left peg....they must have spent his wages on the EGM.

He's injured, therefore he's the best player by default and just what we need to turn things around. Just like the players who are suspended could make a great difference in the matches they miss. Collins was playing some of his worst football for Vale before he got injured, so I don't hold any great hope that he will sure up the defence upon his return.

 

Of couse no-one claims that Haldane would make a difference because one typically would have to have shown some ability before their lay off.

And where's Green now? He's been sent to a team even further down the non-league pyramid!!!

 

If you can't replace someone with better, then why let them go. We've replaced a Skoda, with a Robin Reliant and then sent the Robin Reliant to a scrap yard so we now have to walk everywhere.

 

Spot on young Cheeky :)

Are we better off in that position now?

Surely if we're not then in hindsight it was a mistake to let him go?

What? Clearly it does mean it was a mistake to let him go. We have do awful left backs who wont be hear next season in Roe and Green and we let a decent enough left back go. This has been one of the rout causes of our problems, not having a decent left back fit so we have to change formation, it was a huge mistake to let Kris Taylor, wouldnt have been if Adams signed another decent left back to replace him but he hasnt. I dont see how it isnt a mistake?

Twitters, you thought Chris Slater and Kyle Perry were league standard. Remind me where they are now? Kris Taylor was a decent footballer. He just wasn't that good a defender. I think he'd be more effective at left wing back again than Rob.

Wrong as usual. I never said that about Slater and I said Perry could have been good with decent training. As for Taylor, he can't even get in the Darlington team so how can he be decent? He's at the same level as Perry so you've shot yourself in the foot!

Not at all. He was ****. It's Adams fault for not getting a decent left back in. If we want to improve we need quality. Adams was right to get rid but didn't get the quality we need.

 

There were very few people who moaned when we got rid!

No, Twitters, you just don't like anyone reminding you of the daft things you have said in the past! This is real football not Championship Manager where you can look at a load of stats to judge a players ability. You had "Slater" on your shirt so you must've thought he was decent whereas anyone who say him in the reserves could tell he was useless. The lad we had from Bishop Aukland on trial at the time was better anyone could see that. Perry has found his level perhaps but was never good enough for us.

 

Kris Taylor, on the otherhand, has played over 200 games of league football and has proved himself to definitely be more valuable to our squad then either Roe or Green have. Green does have potential whereas I feel Roe is a little lightweight and not agressive enough for league football.

 

Lots of players have strengths at this level and have to be found a position that suits, be worked on after training or encouraged in order to make it. That is why they find themselves at this level or below. Tomlinson spent a season in non-league but he is definintely good enough for the 4th Division. Personally, I would have kept Kris Taylor, a player Adams knew well, and not wasted money on the other 2 or signed a better left back. It smacked of cost cutting and we are suffering because of these kind of decisions.

Whenever I check how Darlo do which is most weeks because of geohagan he is on. People dont want him back at all, what we are saying is that why let him go and replace him with players far worse than him in green and roe. If he was let go and then replaced by a decent, experienced left back fine, but he wasnt. Id take taylor any day over Green and Roe!
