Can't see why there's any surprise in Power carrying on with his 'way' in L2 when it's only a few weeks ago he came out and stated he wasn't changing anything.

The Williams situation is more debatable. The pool of compliant replacements must be tiny.

Didn't Power state in an interview somewhere that Sherwood signed all these players in Jan, wasn't it the same statement where he said that the players they bought previous were not up to it but they have now given Williams the right tools for the job.

Remember next season, he only said he was confident we'd do better if we stayed up Smiley

That is an honest appraisal.... in Div 4 we won't be able to loan the same standard of player... plus the reputation for players improving has been well and truly fucked.  So we'll be left with the bargain bin... the likes of Feruz, and some sub Conference non leaguers like Harry Agombar.

I'm probably alone on this but I rather hope we've an option on Branco, as he could be OK in Div 4.

I dont think I have seen or spoken to anyone that is confident under Powers current plans with only buying youngsters to sell on that we will have any chance of a quick return from L2.

It is concerning though that he is leaving Williams in the job for this long.

Does anyone know the difference in the FL pot, and type of advertising / sponsorship for L2 does it reduce in price or does income stay similar ? obviously matchday income will reduce with less walk up fans and smaller gates.

Wondered how L1 compares to L2

I believe we had trouble getting Branco to sign the last contract as he thought he could do better than us. Perfectly happy for him to piss off myself but i guess after his shit season there will be very few takers so we may be stuck with him.

Branco could be alright in L2. Norris I think would do an alright job at that level too

agreed, but you can't rely on him as the main man for goals

Centre halves improve with age and we'll need a bit of physical presence.

In Div 4 you get the likes of Akinfenwa and Rhead, they'll make mincemeat out of te bits of kids we tend to recruit.

Branco will never be alright anywhere. He cannot defend. It's that simple. He's woeful.

These things are all relative... right now you can probably count the number of good central defenders at the highest level on one hand. We're talking Div 4 here, for a club with a diminished wage bill.... I know Branco isn't great, but we have to realistic.

As bizarre as it sounds, again relatively speaking te defending hasn't been the primary issue this year....it's up front that has been the deciding factor. We're looking at our lowest ever leading goalscorer, unless there's a big change over the last 7 games.

Its true Bristol Rovers in 8th have conceded only one less goal than we have (they are a bit of an exception).

The problem has been creating and scoring goals. An area where previously we had good quality loan players etc. I suspect Goddard will have a very good year in league 2.

Let's agree to disagree. There are far more competent defenders two levels below us.

Re: Goddard obviously he did OK in the Conference, but Div 3 a step too high for him. It's not inconceivable he'll be OK in Div 4.
