Rhead and green

Postby steve-hymas » Sun Sep 17, 2017 11:20 am

Spoke to greeny after the game and gave him a man hug.
I thought Rhead was awful yesterday and just put his arm out to rough up the defender every time .
Our defenders were class yesterday and had the pair of them in their back pockets .One of the main reasons lincoln didn't get anything from the game is how poor these 2 played.Its time to put these in the history archives and move on .Good conference players but lacking at league 2 level.
Up the stags ! Danny,Danny Rose :D

Totally agree with you about Read, Steve, but Green. It was only last season he struggled and was played out of position often. He was a force the season before. Rhead never could cut in League 2

I thought green showed why we didn't keep him .Struggled for pace to get clear of our defenders,was constantly offside which put us back in possession and stopped running the channels as he tired.
A legend at the club but you can't live on that forever .

Green had a typical green match. Tried so so hard. Had his main impact out wide and in areas where he shouldn't be as a centre forward.

Disappointing he didnt acknowledge the away support when rhead did.

Agree though steve that we have far better than green now. What did you talk to him about steve? clearly he felt no sentiment toward us?!

Lincoln fans are starting to realise why they got rhead, because he was no good for us at league level anymore and the conference is where he's at his best

Think the move to Birmingham and then injury was Greens downfall
SE did give him chances so best left with the memories and Green may score a few in odd games but not prolific enough now
We wish Matt and Rhead well as both did a good job for us at one time and when we needed them at conference level

Agree to some extent.

Rhead struggled with the step-up for us and looks to be having similar issues with Lincoln. No shame in that, you use a hammer for hammering and he's one of the best at that, it's a good plan a in the conference but not in the league.

I feel that Green has changed his role within the team, someone else posted that he was everywhere apart from where a striker should be and for me he's trying to do too much and should concentrate on being a striker that bit more. Our conference side was set up to get it to get Green the ball in the right position and he'd regularly put it in and I don't think this is what's happening now.

Matt Rhead will have a queue of Conference Clubs wanting to pay him good money to play for them. He's also an excellent Plan B to have on your bench in League 2 when you need to go direct. A lot better than Jimmy Spencer. However I don't think Rheady would be happy just sat on the bench. It was good to see some Stags fans clapping him off and chanting "Rheady" yesterday when he was subbed.

Matt Green is good enough for League 2 based on the goals that he has scored to date but he looked like he had lost his way a bit last season. Steve Evans clearly did not fancy him and recent comments by him suggest he thinks Greeny is too distracted by outside interests and he is not focused on his football enough. We'll have to wait and see if Danny Cowley can work his magic. I still think Greeny will score 10-15 goals this season. Some Stags fans will point out that he has already scored more goals than Kane Hemmings.

Don't think Angol and Hemmings were any better than Green and Rhead, on the day.
Both combinations totally bossed by defences.

Rhead would have been excellent at this level a couple of years ago - he has showed against classy opposition what a handful he could be, but at 33 is just starting to struggle a little.
Green looked like he has been for Stags in recent times - hard working and quite a handful, but far from the goal machine that he once was. A couple of times Rhead set up a chance and Green was well out of position.

Which would be unfair because Hemmings has only just joined us and not had a preseason with us.

It was also noticeable that Ollie acknowledged our fans pre match as they chanted 'Ollie Palmer what a newark'. I think he clapped and stood there laughing.

Bet he's not laughing now :lol:

I don't think Rhead is fit enough for league football. I think letting Green go was the right call and I also think that Palmer is a colossal rod.

Palmer is a fraud, how his agent keeps him in the FL is astounding as he's shockingly bad

It's probably his agent that told him he was better than Green.

All 3 Lincoln strikers are conference players at best... I can't understand why some stags supporters thinks Green is better than anyone we've got in a striker's roll. Proven on Saturday he's not got a footballing brain to unlock a division 2 defence... continuously being caught offside as the game went on the more he found himself disinterested in providing any service to the Lincoln team.

SINA, green looked like he was playing when he was here.Trying to be a winger, target man and a hold up man but it just doesn't work for him

Green never worked out what type of player he was when he returned from injury. Before his injury, he played off Rhead (or on his own) as the last man and wasn't really interested in getting involved in the build up play. Having lost a yard of pace, he and his managers have tried to reinvent him several times. He has tried to be a target man, a link up man and a wide player and the painful truth for him is that he struggled. There are better players that specialise in those areas and he has become a bit of a 'Jack of all trades, master of none'. He was never a footballer who was good on the ball. His strength was running in behind defenders, holding them off and getting an early strike in.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

Very disappointing that a club director chooses to come on here and effectively slag off two very good servants of our club.

The obvious question is 'if they are that bad, why did you employ them for so long?'

Whatever your opinion of these two players is, it shows a distinct lack of class for a club spokesman to deliver this type of judgement on a public forum with very little likelihood of reply.

Thought you were better than that Steve.
