Burley 04/05 v Davies 06/07
Camp v Bywater
Camp was excellent that season, I think Bywater's a more commanding and better keeper though. Lee Grant sub goal keeper both seasons.
Kenna v Edworthy
Tough one too call, kenna was good the 2nd half of this season, Edworthy is pretty steady IMO, gets a bit too much stick, I'd call this equal, Richard Jackson sub right back for both seasons.
Vincent / Makin v Camara / Boertien
Vincent was good going forward, but not the best defencively, when he got injured we got Makin on loan, who was a solid experienced player.
Camara just seems to get worse with every game, then there's Boertien who's played 4 games in 2 and a half years, if I was picking the best left back I'd go for Makin.
There's Michael Johnson who's still here, but 2 years down the line he's well past it.
Konjic v Moore
Konjic was always injured, at least Moore can actually turn out for a few games, so you have to go with him.
Mills v Leacock
Leacock easily, Mills was big and strong, but looked a bit chubby and was too slow, Leacock brings some much needed pace to the defence.
Morten Bisgaard is still here, and returning to the sort of form he showed in the play off season, if he can have as good a season as he did then this time, it can only be good for us.
Reich v Ryan Smith
It's still early days for Smith, he looks to be a good player, Reich was a good player on his day, but was too inconsistent, scored some great goals, it's too early too call this one.
Tommy Smith v Giles Barnes
Neither are really natural wide players, but Smith played mostly there, Barneshas played there a bit, there good comparisons for the versitility. Once again a bit early too really compare, Barnes looks like he will be alot better player than Smith, but Smith has been there and done it, with nearly 100 apps 20 odd goals and a player of the season, Barnes is just starting out, if he keeps up his current form for all or most of theseason, we will go up, other teams are frightened too death by him.
Idiakez v Oakley
Idiakez had that extra touch of quality, and was the best player in the Championship this season, in my completetly unbias opinion
Oakley is a bit more defensive minded, and has scored some great goals as well, seems to do a good, but unnoticed job as Captain as well. But you have to go Inigo on the form he was in this season.
Huddlestone v Seth Johnson
Seth for me, can command a game from midfield when he's really on song, and puts bite into the midfield, always though Huddlestone was a bit of a nancy boy
Great passer of the ball though.
Taylor v Malclom
Taylor was vital in keeping us up the season before, but this was a season too far for him at this level. Even on the small number of performances I've seen, I say Malcolm.
Then there's Bolder who's still here as well, and is the same solid squad member.
Rasiak v Howard
I'd take a brave man too make a call on this one, Howard works alot harder for the team, but goals is what it will be judged on, if Howard scores more this season...which I think he might then he'll get it.
Tudgay v Lupoli
Lupoli by a mile, a good player Tudgay, still don't understand why we sold him, not got Lupoli's class though.
Peschi is still there, and still a super sub, and we've got an extra striker in Stead this season.
I think I'd give the edge too this seasons squad already, we've found form earlier as well, it wasn't really untill the 2nd half of the season we we're being seen as serious play off contenders, we already are this season. And with Davies wanting too add t the squad, hopefully we will get even stronger
