Coulson can't make it onto the pitch ahead of one league 1 player, it would be a travesty for him to be pushed further down the pecking order because of another one.

Bit much to denigrate someone for being a League One player when the highest level Coulson had played in England was League Two before he was thrown in at the deep end.

Was it a travesty that Bola was kept out of the side by a League Two player?

Didn't one of the ITKers say we scouted him when they played Hartlepool up here in the cup but that we weren't particularly impressed.

He'd be cheap cover at WB if we are interested

Yep we did. Recommended by Alan Moore ūüĎć

I could be wrong but I think Randall Williams plays on the right hand side? Coulson just needs to bide his time. A lot of games coming up and his chance will come. And he needs to grab with both hands

Tranfermarkt says left foot.  Wears #11 shirt.  Seems likely he plays on left.

We already have cheap cover at wingback.  What we need is an actual wingback, or even better, an actual left back.

No because Bola is a League Two player himself¬†ūü§≠

He can play on the left but he normally plays on the right and cuts in

If any truth is in the rumour about Randell Williams I would be pleased with it. He looked pretty decent when watching Exeter in the playoffs. Played more on the left side of midfield and had some decent crosses on him.

He 100% is a right sided player. Played nearly all his football on the right for Exeter last season. In their play-off games he was playing as a right wing-back.

I can see him coming in to add competition for Spence.

He played right wing-back in all their play-off games?

I'm a little bit confused.  Left or right?

I'll take your word for it but I certainly don't seem to remember him coming up against Cohen Bramall on the right side of the pitch against Colchester unless I was sleeping and not paying attention... Can't see why we would want a left footed player on the right side of the pitch though, although with this club anything is possible ha.

Think you could have been napping bud, he 100% played on the right against Colchester both times. I watched both games along with the Cheltenham vs Northampton games too (as there was bugger all else on). I could only find limited highlights for the Exeter games against Colchester. But in both videos you can see him lineup on the right in both defence and attack. Rendell is number 11.

    • I think football will be in a state of flux for the next couple of seasons. Brexit could change the market completely for English clubs. There will be alot of out of work footballers out there and NW seems pretty good at persuading people to come play for him. I'd be happy with Warnock to steer us through for the next 2 years, then when things return to normal we need to look at a long term plan.¬† I think he will stay with the aim of getting us promoted, if he can, then defining that plan may be easier with a few quid behind us.¬† If he does leave, with the squad we have now I think we would need another experienced head. I doubt Gibson will go foreign again so Howe or Cook for me.¬† If he goes with a rookie again, I can see him going for John Terry. If he does go rookie, he needs an old head as number 2.¬†¬†
    • Warnock isn't a guarantee of promotion. In the modern era (last 25 years) he's won 3 and he's managed pretty much consistently for that time. Hes not a magic wand that will get you promoted every time.
    • If we swap Managers again we are back to where we have been too many times lately, a squad of players with a manager who will have his own ideas and preferences who will take a few months to weigh them all up then decide our strikers are garbage, he needs a new midfield (no doubt to add to the ones we already have) and so on and so on. In an ideal world I'd love a swashbuckling entertaining manager to see us winning 4-3 every week but in the harsh commercial reality that we are living in SG will quite rightly seek to minimise spending and costs. The best solution in that case is Warnock, he gets crocks and out of favour players and builds a team with them. He somehow consistently manages to get promotions with them as well. Yes he has occasionally spent big money and they haven't always worked out but that applies to every single club and manager in the world of football. If anything it's his budget acquisitions that work out best. If there was a 10/10 solution in terms of management we couldn't afford them anyway, Warnock at this level is probably a 7 or 8/10 and in terms of achieving the aim probably as good as any and better than most. If he stays I would comfortably be expecting promotion within two years (from now). I haven't got that same confident feeling with say a Lampard as an example. Wagner would be even more negative than Warnock so we can cross that one off unless we want really soul¬†destroying football while grinding out promotion. I doubt Eddie Howe would want to come up here plus I reckon he could Cherry pick (pun intended).¬† Put yourself in SG's shoes for a minute. Brexit has severely disrupted and caused additional costs and aggravation for haulage companies, Rockliffe lost their insurance claim for Covid disruption and has been haemorrhaging money for years. MFC have played out twelve months with all the associated wages and overheads with no paying customers. He has a Manager who is getting on with it and who he knows knows what he is doing and will like as not have his team ion the top six next season or even top two and won't throw his toys out because he can't spend serious money because he is old school and realises that bills have to be paid. Who¬†is he going to get that would in all reality deliver a better outcome for the here and now? I would love to see fast paced, slick passing football and the goals fly in but with that taking three or four years to mature with no guarantee that it even would and the likelihood that the same manager will have the fans on his back within seven or eight months if we are sliding down the table its a gamble. Of course it may work from day one and we run away with the Championship but for it to work needs investment in recruitment, scouting and of course purchasing players with those skill sets which if it is done on a budget has an even longer time period in all likelihood for it to work. Meanwhile SG has Neil Warnock who will frustrate, no doubt agitate at times and even create despair and anguish but is probably nailed on to get promotion or at least top six consistently and on a shoestring budget (comparatively speaking compared to past Boro¬†managers). ¬†
    • Marco Silva (Ex Hull, Everton and Benfica) would be my number 1 choice but we all know it won't happen as Gibson won't go foreign management again. Pearson was my choice in the summer but we all knew Warnock was going to be given an extension. I wanted the 3year long term plan last summer as it was ideal opportunity because of the out of contract players leaving. Additionally, we all knew this season was going to be a free pass because of the lack of money throughout the league. We need someone who has experience of the league and is relatively young enough to adapt.¬† Howe would be excellent, but no way could we attract someone like him. Fans need to be realistic and accept we are not the driving force we once were and the job isn't attractive as it was. I have literally no faith in Gibson making key football decisions for this club anymore, and that's why we keep going round in circles.
    • You'd think if they were going to sack him, they'd have done it by now, but I would be a fan of Chris Wilder, even accounting for this season.
