There are some big characters in our team and especially the back 4. GK is the most important posistion on the park, I have to be honest when I say I don’t think Davies is actually up to it. He is a decent shot stopper but: Lacks command of his area and the back 4, he won’t take control of a situation, evidenced well at home to Peterborough with the infamous back pass, then highlighted again on Boxing Day at home to Fylde with the McNulty back pass header and regularly when he tries these stupid punches instead of claiming the ball. Have noticed recently a portion of defenders feeling it necessary to remind Davies of these finer points of custodianisim over recent weeks.

Big Eric did all these things extremely well in his day and something I would have thought may have seen an improvement in from Davies this term with Nico now on staff.

Lots of good keepers out their and it shouldn’t be to difficult to find a replacement for Davies who is better in these areas as I really don’t feel this is the right time for Pilling to be thrown in.
