He wasn't out of position. Roberts is a right footed centre half, not a left footed one (or even a left back as someone else above compared him to Rico).

Well Jonny in the other games he played he played on the left and when I saw he him play for the youth team he played left back!! Anyway he was clearly not at the races today which was surprising after his assured performance on Tuesday. We all know young players have bad and good games but the difference between the 2 performances was remarkable.

Against Port Vale he played on the left side as I believe he has a better left foot than Preston. However the two games he played at Christmas was both at right sided centre half. Also not sure why he would play LB for the youth team considering we have Callum Cockerill-Mollett but I haven't watched them myself, just looked at the team sheets.

One comment on the club's Facebook (I know, I know....) mentions a "rumour" that Oztumer has submitted a transfer request. Naturally hoping that this can be filed with the other 99% of bolognaise that appears on there.... :?

Absolute and utter shambles.

How anyone can survive that end to the season is beyond me.

Just waiting for Walsallmem to come on and show what a better fan he is by defending that utter shite.

WHITNEY OUT TODAY.

Ironic isn't it how Whitney was a grave digger, and he is now digging one for our club. We have gone backwards this season, in every way. Whitney Out.

What a wonderful day of adventurous and scintillating football I was privileged to watch today. Can't wait for the new season to start. Will be most surprised if we don't get automatic promotion. Hail the greatest managerial find in modern times.

Looks like my pregame prediction came true ...

Absolutely right to play the kids, absolutely wrong to stick with the same system that worked for a couple of weeks in the winter and to allow the players to be building sand castles already.

Whitneys not the man for us but at this point that's not beating a dead horse, it's killing the horse, burning it, spreading the ashes and then beating the ground. It was obvious after Barnsley.

Grim.

The only positive to take from that non performance is we don't have to watch football of that calibre for 3 months.

Oh, and Jason McCarthy's acceptance speech. What a nice guy.

What a turgid end to the season.

Mc'Arthy, Ozzy & O,connell are all capable of playing at the next level,They can do better than being stuck in the mediocrity that we accept year in year out.
Jason seems like a great lad and has given his all good luck to him he will be remembered with respect.

fudge crap.

Whitney deserves all the pelters he's getting but let's not let the players off here.... shite for weeks now. For all the warnings that last summer was one of transition we are not one step further forward than when JW took the job.

Well done Ozzy and JM for their awards (really funny when Ozzy got 1,2,3 for goal of the season). Those two and O'Connell, who is a talent... other than that complete shite.

Yes, and to howls of laughter from the other clubs fans in the division.
In fact to howls of laughter from anyone who follows football.

I bet any of the clubs just relegated from League One would quite happily trade places with us.

This was a pre-season friendly wasn't it - or a testimonial?

A terrible display from us yesterday. We did improve in the second half with a bit more urgency once Flo and Morris came on but that is not saying much. I feel sorry for Roberts and Candlin having 'to blood' themselves in that mess of a performance and I hope it does not do them any lasting damage in their development. I thought Roberts started competently but once he began committing mistakes (including losing possession that led to the second goal) he was liability and had to be taken off whilst Candlin touched the ball perhaps once (?). I question the wisdom of starting him in this game - he's simply not ready.

I'm not sure if JW is trying to make a point about the paucity of resources he has at his disposal or whether he genuinely thinks giving these lads a learning opportunity is the right thing to do. I can only say that whatever plan he had in mind has backfired and has now probably put his own job at risk. I'm sure the board (i.e. Bonser) will be meeting to discuss 'progress' this season but I can't help thinking that there is a real possibility that JW could be sacked after the recent run of performances/results.

Great finishes for the first 2 MK goals and the Ozzy goal but that 4th MK goal was just embarrassing and shocking, truly shocking.

Agreed.

He's a typical West Ham youth product, good on the ball and can pick a pass but very lightweight.

Next season is going to be very difficult if Dobson and Chambers is going to be the regular midfield duo...one 37 and the other too slow.

I actually don't think he's even played the right youth players apart from Roberts. Cockerill-Mollet played regularly in the JPT so surely when Laird was told he wasn't playing again this season he should've been given games at LB unless he's injured?

Butterfield is another one I thought would be involved once Osbourne was sent packing given his similarities in build. I don't know if he's been any good for the reserves though.

The last 3 games sound absolute gash.

Not just the last 3

The last 10 show only 1 win with 6 defeats

hopefully the losers mentality will be gone over the summer I know that most of these last 10 games the players had nothing to play for but they have now developed a bad habit

Would the lack of celebration after his goal yesterday suggest that this might be true? Or was it just that the goal was fairly meaningless in the context of this particular game?

A good goal, though.

Watching those goals here's hoping Craig MacGillivray isn't our number one next season.

I am not sure about the goalie but do you really think he should have saved any of the goals? The first 2 were superb strikes and the last 2 were deflections giving him no chance!
