Pilkington - that's the fella. Absolute quality that day. Out of that team JJ I'd take Vincent, Peacock and Jutlkievicz. I'd completely forgotten about Noubbissie.
Yeah I think you are right, Vincent had his moments but was solid at the back but Peacock and Lukas are the only others I would have now, Roberst if it was a sober Roberts!

 I had forgotten Noubissie too, there was some real dross in that team though.

To be honest, drink Roberts could still be good. Not that I'm wishing those demons back on him

I don't want to misinterpret the words put into his mouth but....did he basically say Flitcroft bottled it here due to the injuries ?! Well sort of.

I couldn't hear it TBH, but if he intimated that then he is right Flitcroft did bottle it.

Said something like maybe he's looked at the injuries,and thought they aren't going to fit by the end of the season -there is another horse in the race and he's jumped on that...

Blimey, I'd have Ifil from that 2007 team in place of any of our current defenders.
Maybe the passage of time has not been kind to Jerel's placing in the STFC pantheon, but he was nowhere near as bad as is made out.

None of the current lot would warrant a catchy chant from the TE, that's for sure.

From memory, Ifil was a very solid defender when he had an older head alongside him to walk him through the game. Without that, though, he'd go to pieces.

When Ifil first signed on loan from Watford he looked quite handy, pace and strong with it, could fill in at RB and CB and was comfortable on the ball.

But he seemed to get worse as his career progressed with Swindon and did end up costing us a lot of goals, some of them comedy goals, but as FH says when he had more experienced defenders alongside him he performed well at times.

my memory of Ifil a typical Ifil game: 80 minutes good, 10 minutes a mistake waiting to happen...

Still didn't mind him though

Was Ifil ever disliked? Like most lower league players, he was limited.

As long as that older head wasn't aljofree who when having fucked up for a goal would look over at ifill. When played alongside Vincent he was very good. Actually maybe a bit harsh on ifill.

Think his name cropped up when Heywood made into the hall of fame.
The tone of the resulting debate was one of general disapproval. Could be wrong of course.
He seemed popular with the masses during his time here.

PV mentioned comedy goals.
Picking the ball up before it had gone of play & Torquay scoring from the free kick was amusing.
The head high challenge and last minute penalty to Hartlepool wasn't so funny.

Wonder if the tailing off of form might have been more to do with Malpas taking over?

Always though he might have played at a higher level with some better coaching.

I don't think Ifil was ever disliked by any Town fans he was just as COnstanza says fairly limited.

He was always good for a fuck up every game though and in that way reminds me of Lancashire, Thompson and Branco.

You always knew what you were getting with Ifil...or more to the point you didn't know until it happened!

Would I take him now over Robertson or Lancashire? actually yes I probably would, even now at 35.
