I get the impression does not fancy Kory Roberts. Reckon he prefers a much chunkier centre back. Not that I think that KR will end up playing that position.
Understand the manager sets and expects certain standards of performance for training and reserve fixtures. Which Kory seemingly isn’t hitting. But the proof is really in the pudding, actually playing 1st team fixtures, not what happens at Essington, surely.
If it was all about training and reserve games, Reece Flanagan, and Joe Broad before him, would be household names and have stands named after them.
Like to see the lad given a chance, perhaps at full back or sitting in front of the defence. Be criminal if he was just released in the summer based on this season’s playing time. Perhaps this E&S article is a ruse to that actually happening, talk him down to talk him up, If that makes sense.
