    I am absolutely astonished how this guy still makes the starting eleven, he was once a quality player but I feel he contributes very little.... Makes me so pleased that Billy has signed now and with what I have seen of T. Lee tonight I'm hoping we wont see to much of Conners anymore, he was bloody useless tonight!!

    I think Connolly will be fazed out now we have Sharp & Lee personally, but he has bursts of form then goes a while with no form (usually when he is trying to win a contract at the end of a season)

    He was anonymous tonight, but has been very good. The start of the season his link ups were slicing teams open. Go easy on the guy, he's not going to get as much game time now.

    Sadly for him his legs have gone, lost a lot of pace and was second to nearly every ball tonight.

    Let him have a burst of face on loan somewhere, send him to the skates they could do with a few to make up the numbers and it's a good bit of saints in the community work!

    I agree his legs have completely gone, he is little and lightweight and against these big lumps of centre backs in the championship in seriously lacking!

    I actually hold Adkins responsible for not getting him off after 60 minutes!

    See ya later David on ya bike!

    On a plus note having Jason puncheon back is like having a new signing, he has come back a new man!

    Rude. I like DC, he's been good when we've called on him. Without him last season, we would have ended up in the play offs imo.

    Oh, fans can be so fickle! He didn't have a good game tonight, but he is a decent back up even if he won't start anymore.

    Agreed his form at the end of last season was vital... We are in a league above now, quicker, better players etc!

    Its funny, we had so many corners tonight, if Guly was on instead we would have stood a better chance of glancing one in!
    But, NA will look back at the video, & make changes for the weekend. As he draws a blue line, Billy walks in.

    Get in.

    Some people have such a short memory! He has had some excellent games this season. True, he's not in great form right now but we've got plenty of other strikers available now to take some pressure off him.

    Still think he can do a job for us from the bench, and I'd have him in front of Barnard in the striking pecking order.

    How come Guly wasn't even in the starting 16 tonight?

    I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

    He is quite capable of hitting form again. When called upon this season he has performed well more often than not; totally off beam to suggest otherwise

    Very harsh thread I think, but he is probably nearing the end of his career now. I think he'll leave in the summer, and he'll either retire or drop down a couple of divisons or maybe play in Ireland for a bit.

    He was always this good - bearing in mind, I didn't watch him tonight, but have seen him loads of times in League 1. Agree he is like a new signing, but not that he's a new man.

    Referring to Puncheon. For some reason, the highlighted part of the quote didn't highlight.
