The problem is that any significant - for us - money that has been spent on either buying the odd player or higher than average wages for a free transfer has largely been wasted.

Norris, Anderson, Woolery, Doughty, Dave(?) - probably a few more.

Norris is miles better than any forward we have now

The player sales did fund running costs, largely the previous years costs that Power covered with Loans.  He is not yet fully refunded, but was getting close.

None of them being football.

She is a lefty though and Iím a righty so will be interesting to see which hand & foot he predominantly uses...

Bayo is a better player than a lot of our fans give him credit for, hes either excellent or awful there no average performance with him.

Bayo has shown he is good, or at least he can be. If only he can be more consistent.

He is a much better than Twine. Strange how fans do not judge Twine the same way as him

Twine has a lot of potential but needs to develop physically, best example was against Woking when he was constantly knocked off the ball.

Not that strange though, fans always want home grown players to do well hence cut some slack.

Adebayo is a good prospect, but his inconsistency isn't what we need right now. I don't blame him, he's young and several years from his peak.

I think Twine has loads of potential he could be very good but for this league(especially) he badly needs to build some upper body strength, hes too lightweight and pushed off the ball to easily.

If he can improve that (by a lot) he will be excellent.

Bayo has body strength and is at least as consistant as Twine, if not more so, but some of our fans are blinkered as they desperately want to bring through "one of their own".

Twine is another one who doesn't yet look to have a natural position to me.  Pryce you could tell where he needed to play - on the shoulder of the central defender and try and play him through or get some low crosses in.  Twine, much more tricky.  Add in the factor of youth and you get inconsistency.    Even when he plays wide, he seems to drift all over the place, which doesn't suggest he'd be comfortable playing between the 18 yard box alone.  He draws free kicks quite well and seems to have a nice touch - he might do well in a number 10 style position, but you'd need a number nine with him to bully the defenders and allow him to drift off and find space, maybe.

Anyway, I'd be amazed if we ever sold him for a fee.  He is still young but has had enough exposure to show there is too much work to be done.
