All been true all season.

I can’t see him still being here by the time the calendar year ends.
Unless we bring in some experience to help - just gonna use Tony Pulis as an example because he worked with Garner at Palace and took him up to West Brom.

There are definite similarities between Garner and Williams. It's academy style football that they try to get their teams to play.

I've been saying this since November and Luke Warm was one of the reasons I stopped coming to the County Ground.

Most long balls yesterday were woeful. Simple stuff.
As opposed to our short balls? Because if their was some great passes, then I must of dozzed off.

I was disappointed with Egbo. He only took on the fullback once and got that good cross in, but no more for some reason, he moved inside a lot and got crowded out. Admittedly he didn't get much support from behind him, but perhaps he was under orders to play a different kind of game than we saw him perform against Harrogate.

He is going to be very hit and miss for a while, assuming he will improve over time.  He's been playing the equivalent of Academy level football in USL for NY Red Bulls II.  It's like L1 to Conference level talent playing in an Academy sort of way.

He got doubles up quite a bit, I noticed, even when they had 10 men.

I pointed out Egbo reluctance to try to beat his man during the game.

mind you JML got pelters for trying to do the same v Newport and failing

whatever the reason is, I hope it's not coached because his asset was movement and directness. Maybe Harrogate took to much out of him.

with hindsight maybe Williams should have started. But you can't drop Egbo after Friday!

You need to keep in mind that Egbo is not used to playing forward as he is with us, from what I understand he has played most of his career at RB.  He might have the pace and power to run at players, but if it is not natural to you, 9/10 your brain will revert to what you know, which for a RB is to turn back and protect the ball.

you are absolutely right. it's more that he didn't do it as much as he did at Harrogate in the same position.

Think there's some raw talent there though

After the shitshow of last summer we need to give Garner a full pre-season and a chance to try (along with Ben Chorley) to build on this season, however some of the performances- especially at home, have been abysmal.

Its been reminiscent of watching us under Williams- academy/ testimonial football. My biggest concern is the intensity or lack thereof and our lack of match sharpness/fitness.

Personally can't see Garner here long term especially if we start next season like the last few months of this! Hope he proves me wrong.
