For what he offered when he was allowed to play, I'd say Poku, not necessarily for being the best or having the biggest impact in big games etc, but for the effort and energy and fight he showed. The type of player he is and how he played when he did was exactly what was needed in the middle of the park to stabilise things.
Jack Cook for me. Right back is not his best position, and that was the main issue, but he kept at it. I maintain he is our best centre back. His attitude and application should be praised.fatmaninthekitchen wrote: ↑Fri May 01, 2020 3:13 pmJack Cook or Moussa - Jack never complained once, despite ridiculously unfair assessments of his performances at RB by some on here - he did very well indeed , helped us clear crosses, corners and long throws ,which can never be quantified at the end of the day, got fwd a lot and actually got better crosses in than Josh ever does. Moussa is a very good footballer, he is not just a heading/kicking machine that Ben is - although Ben was pretty good at what he did , so that is not a criticism of him. Great season chaps, bloody well done
Poku, Ross, Moussa compete for 2nd and 3rd. Not sure anyone else deserves a mention as player of the season for me, but a very good effort in general.

If he starts there next season - no complaints from me. Ross and Poku 2nd and 3rd 3rd and 2nd a short neck between them all.
Couldn't complain either if Casey / Gerring / Moussa gets it. Then again give it to Jarvis as a sweetner for him signing up again.

That said, I think about a third of the squad has a shout. What a brilliant season it's been.
For me, Ross just edges it over Cook, again for the reasons mentioned above.
In saying that, it has more of a fantastic team effort from the boys this season rather than one outstanding player
Ross - most consistent
Cook - most improved
Diarra - such a gentleman and always motm consideration
Poku - all the commitment you’d ever want from a player
Hyde - 17 goals not a full season and missed plenty of games. What could have been for him.....
All in all every player has shown they are good enough to play at this level except perhaps Christ Tehi and his brief cameo v Bromley
(we're having some technical issues with logging in from iPhones at the moment.).
Mad isn’t it? I went down the line of players who had been with us for the season and played continually rather than a brief cameo and then went to Tonbridge Angels and um, disappeared.
Playing Nathan up top ahead of him was the final nail in the coffin in that player review for me.
Shows what can be done in a 20 minutes spell when another day before signing comes in, sets one up and scores one themselves and while carrying a hernia.
He even goes ahead in the standings but didn’t play a season so can’t be selected.
Harsh I know but I can sleep easy on that decision. .
If we look at players who have been with us since the start of the season, at least 5 have proven they are not good enough for this level. Not their fault, I'm not good enough to be the MD of where I work.
Give us the at least five then from the start ....just for interest
Looks that way doesn’t it. Equal(ish) game time and one played incredibly well and the other didn’t in his brief show.JAM wrote: ↑Wed May 06, 2020 9:13 amSpitfire, so Christ wasnt good enough as you are comparing him with someone who once played for England. I agree that he seemed a bit of a panic buy, and the fact that he came on before Hodges that night seemed a bit strange. With regards to Nathan playing up front at the end of that game, 1) we didnt have any strikers as it was on plastic and 2) I believe he has played there before in his career
It’s a comparison to the entire squad and Jarvis was a touch of class and Christ, I’m afraid, for me wasn’t. I suggest he wasn’t for the management either as he wasn’t seen again.
Yes Nathan did play up front (For Dartford seems to ring a bell?) but he doesn’t anymore does he. As you point out Hodges could have been a better choice but that’s why we aren’t the managers of WFC. Just as well really.
The thread is about player of the season and as I said “all the players have proved they deserve to be at this level except for Christ in his brief cameo ..... etc” which shows how well they have played individually and as a unit over the course of a season. Not a fleeting moment. All five of my POTS contenders have been consistent throughout the season and not just one game. It’s a tough call between them.
Perhaps we should change the title of the thread for you?
Players who should be player of the season but played less than 30 minutes.
I’m more interested as to why you think he is worthy of higher acclaim? What did you see in him?
P.S. Christ still doesn’t win the new award. That clearly goes to Jarvis. But just my opinion as we are still allowed them in lockdown.
Of course Jarvis was a touch of class, he played over 200 games in the PL, bit harsh to compare him with someone who played 50 odd times for Le Havre 2nd team and for Ivory Coast U20s (according to Wiki)
I assume that Nathan was played up front over Hodges (or any 1 else for that matter) due to height reasons and being (hopefully) an outlet. At the time, we had no strikers, Meite would have been the option but was unfit, Tyreke would also been an option but got injured on the Saturday before, we were 1 down to a team at the top of the league, and I presume Dowse thought he would gamble to try and get back into the game as we had nothing to lose.
I just think its a bit harsh to just single out Christ in your comment. I totally agree that as a team to finish where we did was a fantastic achievement. At least we agree on the same five in contention for POTS.
No need to change the title of the thread. and I dont hold him in 'high acclaim', as I said just think its a bit harsh to single him out. I would have liked to see more of him to form a better opinion, but as you say that is not our job
as for opinions, that is what football is based on
