I'd doubt we'll offer Lewis Martin another deal, as much of a shame that it is. Boy just has zero luck with injuries.

I would be tempted to offer him a 6 month deal to get fit and then see how he's doing.

I'm genuinely gutted for him as I have been a big fan since we started playing him at LB, but we can't afford to pay for players that are injured constantly. It's shite but we need to keep the best interests of the club first.

Edwards is good IMO. There is still some aspects he can improve upon in his defensive work, but going forward he is brilliant. Sometimes you need to compensate when you have players like that. Think that's why we sometimes see that side of the park a lot less clustered to let him just bomb on. Lewis Martin's time is probably up at EEP as well. 

Nah, disagree. His passing is utter junk and he gives the ball away far too often.

What does Edwards do going forward that's brilliant? 

 

He's not very good tbh.

Can turn and beat a man quite easily and bring us up the pitch. Thought that was fairly obvious tbh. Seems like we're going down the Ross Millen route with Edwards.

I've been fairly impressed by the Morton keeper when I've seen him. Not sure what the Morton fans have thought of him overall though.

He won virtually every Player Of The Year vote going.

Aye, Doesn't surprise me. Would like to see him at East End but decent keepers are hard to find at the moment and I could see a bit of competition there.

Did you see the ball he played for O'Hara on Saturday, okay not everything comes off for him but he has a good range of passing and would say more comes off for him than doesn't.

He's also young and I'm sure has learnt more this season than in any previous seasons.

Edwards is 20 so very much a work in progress. He's came on tremendously since he signed. He's good decent footwork that he's shown a few times heading towards the opposition area. Fairly quick, but obviously still a bit raw. He deserves to stay. Is his passing a bit off? No more than any other player with no movement ahead of him I'd say. 

Martin is fucking brilliant and I hope he gets back to full fitness somehow. He's had a couple of really serious injuries now has he not? Absolute shame for the boy, would give him 6 months or something depending on the timescale of him getting back to fitness.

I did see it and it was a very good pass.

I would disagree though that more comes off than doesn't though; I'd say it was the other way around.

His passing is noticeably and significantly worse than any other player in the team, even when he does have plenty of options. A 20 year old should be a lot better at it than he is.

Comrie's distribution is much better than Edwards, that's the standard he should be judged by IMO.

I would like to see what Edwards pass completion stats are compared to Comrie on the other side. Or Lewis Martin last season.

For me it's quite noticeable that he seems to give the ball away more times than he completes a pass. 

I think he does have decent footwork and is good at getting by players to be fair. I hope he makes the improvements required but whilst we wait for that happening, I would like to see stronger competition for him if Martin leaves.

Edwards is only 20 and might progress into a decent LB. But he’s one of the weaker areas in the team at the moment. I don’t want this to seem like we have a scapegoat and I don’t think many are intending their posts to say he will never make it. It’s simply that he isn’t at the level required just now for a first choice LB, if we want to make a title push next season.

If we were asked to identify 3 areas that need improved, it would have to be GK, central midfield and LB. There are other positions we need to add depth/different options. But these are our 3 weakest areas this season for me.

Comrie is one of the best RBs in the league and in Vytas and Watson, we have 2 decent CBs. I like Wilson in midfield, but we need another central midfielder to add more quality and help us keep the ball. Thomas and Dow out wide and Wighton/McManus/O’Hara up front are good enough. So I think adding some depth/other options would be enough there.

What's up Wilson? Presumably he's injured?
Craw mentioned a couple of weeks ago he's been playing with a knock.

Pretty much the exact way I see things just now.

He can?! 

 

We're not going down the Ross Millen route at all, but currently Edwards, along with OFW and our manager are our three weakest areas that are stopping us contesting the title.
