Same again. One pick this time.

*Only rule is you can't pick your own teams player as if that's allowed everyone will do it.*

Jordan Cranston (he stood out more for Gateshead than Cheltenham)

Based on who I saw subdue KMB the most this season, I would have to say Matt Hill from Tranmere.

It's not James Jennings despite his 6 goals for us. Adam Virgo really has no idea. The amount of times JJ rashly dived in and the right winger easily skipped around him leaving him feigning injury in the ground was embarrassing. Nice guy though.

Can I vote Jordan Cranston for his performance against us for Gateshead? He was actually quite shite when playing for us....

Sean Newton

Both games vs us he stood out, surprised he didn't get a move to the FL this summer as based on those 180 mins he could do a job in L1.
CBB was excellent against us for Cheltenham last season but I haven't seen him play this year.
Matt Hill should not be anywhere near this team, nice guy but his legs have majorly gone.

It's amazing how many people actually rate Braham-Barrett. He was unbelievably bad for us in L2 but maybe the NL is just his level.

Can I vote for James Jennings even though he's just signed for us? :D

To be honest I'm putting forward Hill based more on KMB's lack of impact in those two games, rather than Hill's performances. Not a very convincing argument from me.

Yes mate, I'm sure even the Cheltenham fans who went to PP that season would even admit it, although by the sounds of it was a one off

Miracles do happen then.

I'm not aware of it, but then I didn't got to PP.

I do think he wasn't hated as much at the start of the 14/15 season, but it didn't take long to realise what we already knew from the 13/14 season, and that is that he's God awful. Aswad Thomas must play like having a leg missing for Dover fans to consider CBB as a better defender.

EDIT - Scratch that, it appears he started very well that season. A comment from me the week after the Tranmere game:

"No arguments with man of the match, CBB is like a whole new player, and credit to him. He could have gone into his shell after "non-trying-gate" but he has been brilliant this season."

Still goes down as one of our worst ever players though.

Sean Newton for me too, solid defender, decent workrate and in the right place to grab the winner against us.

On Matt Hill,defensively he was sound, good character, but the legs had gone. Didn't seem to recover from the injury that had kept him out most of the previous season

Aswad Thomas is atrocious. CBB has been a class act in every game he's played for us. And seeing as he played more games for other clubs than us I can vote for him, no? :D

And we've released CBB today! Typical...
