He won’t ever be effective as a winger in my opinion. He can’t shoot, can’t pass, awful decision making, can’t control the ball. What is he genuinely good at? What has he shown this season? He has pace but never even uses his pace to beat a man. He prefers to attempt a ball roll and fall over.

This.

When? Saturday 10th April, 15:00 Where? Oakwell, somewhere in South Yorkshire So. Barnsley. Flat caps, whippets, ecky thump, eeh by gum tha's gonna be a reet tricky game.  Mai

Warnock is a manger/coach who won't admit that he's got it wrong bringing Bettinelli in, we al know the keepers wrong for us and nobodies convincing me the coaching staff don't know that either, stubb

It shouldn't read like it's coming from the MFC website though.  This is something I copied from there as well: 'The game wasn’t one for the purists. Barnsley’s assault on the play-off places has

I think with Spence he's using these last few games to see if he can be effective as a winger and someone he wants here next season

Spence is never going to be a winger in a million years.

I think Spence just needs confidence. He seems to lose his bottle when he gets close to a player, slow down, do a ball roll then try to go past him, ends up in the corner and loses it. I think he needs to just cut out the 'skills', use his pace and agility to just get past players and release the ball quickly. We have seen before he can be quite effective running with the ball and also when pressing high up the pitch.

I don’t want to be harsh on Spence cos he’s only a young lad. I just don’t see what ability he has that could be improved enough to make him a good player. 
 

For example, when I look at Coulson, I see a player that could improve. He has a nice touch, a nice weight of pass, quick feet and attempts to get past his man 1v1. He’s a bit naive sometimes and very lightweight. Don’t think we or the club know his best position. Thats probably his biggest problem atm.

I think it’s his best position. He has the pace that a lot of our layers lack, he just needs games to improve his confidence.

People really do love making a meal of Spence's capabilities or lack thereof, don't they? Lad is 20 years old, had his first season in pro football last season out of nothing and he's the whipping boy of this team right now. In comparison to others who we're paying significant sums of money for, players who we expect to do the business every matchday, relatively speaking he's not even close to being the worst player in this side.

Couldn't we just strap him in one of those chairs, stick a plug in the back of his neck and upload the skills into him, like they did with Neo in The Matrix? 😁

    • Just seen Hull close to signing Dion Charles from Accrington, he's one of the standout L1 strikers in my opinion would've liked us to have a look 
    • If distance is all that matters, then hard to beat this one 🙂
    • Can i ask where the sudden love and appreciation for Mendez Gomez has come from on this board? I seen people mention him a fee times in last couple days especially when not being happy at the signing of Michale Smith. Despite fact ones a winger and other is a striker so am not even understanding the comparison  Did anyone even know who Mendez Gomes was until @diggerlad07 mentioned we scouted him? And now he suddenly this up and coming talent in everyones eyes that we must sign? Reminds me last summer when this board had a meltdown at the club for losing out to Brentford for Charlie Goode and we all know how well he did for Brentford.
    • Ah..  the eighties..  when haircuts were weird and so were footballers 🙂
    • Why would we do that when we could sign a donkey in the back end of an average career for a manager who's gone in a year?
