Even now, see the Players Transferred thread, people still blaming Flitcroft. We didn't let them have him, it was his choice. He was out of contract.

Need to hammer it in with some people, they need a scapegoat.

And yet the more expensive options of Diamond and Mirfin were preferred at the start of the season

I think the reason for that was because Bennett was a Murray signing. That would be easy to forget the way SE is praising Bennett. What I found amusing was Evans saying Bennett was even effective in mid field for Rochdale. Begs the question then why he signed Butcher before trying Bennett there.

I always thought that something was up when Bennett didn't sign an extension in February with Benning and Pearce when Evans was still here.
We might win against Accrington next time, if we ever play them again.

The contempt for Evans grows daily for me.
The point above about Butcher is a an excellent one.
These are my opinions , if you don't like them I have others...

Seen as a striker by Nigel Clough, but Butcher didn't like that and saw himself as a box-to-box midfielder at Millwall, playing just off the striker. Probably best described as an attacking midfielder (so I say it too!).
Bit of a strange one - shone with Burton and helped them to promotion to the Championship, then again with Millwall. And yet suddenly he can only get a game at Billericay level.

I imagine the realisation that he was now playing for Mansfield Town in League 2 when he was dreaming of playing for Millwall in the championship was a blow too hard for him to take.

He's had a season to re-think his career whilst pocketing a healthy wage courtesy of John Radford.

It's a hard life int it Martin.
i would prefer not to.

You are correct about Butcher being an attacking mid field player and Bennett obviously not. The point I was trying to make, is why bring in another player on allegedly high wages, when the squad could be utilised? We were lacking a midfielder who could protect the back four all season.

No the point I was actually making is that Butcher never has and never will be an attacking midfielder. But he was in Evans eyes.
