First interview with George Taft since he joined!!

Tafty talks about his long road to recovery, trying to come back too soon, and needing to impress Evans quickly to win a new deal next season. I would definitely keep him.

Why would you keep him? I'll trust Evans's judgement on George. He may well have a more durable replacement lined up.

He's got both the ability and the experience, the issue is getting him on the pitch in the first place. If he can have a run of games at the end of the season to get over these issues I can see him being of value next season if not the remainder of this.

I agree Taft is a quality player, played very well at Burton and helped them to promotion

I thought he was impressive against Exeter until he went off hope he stays fully fit now. Better CB than Bennett imo.

As long as he doesn't 'Do a Blair' and sod off in the summer now he's back to full fitness. Taft looked solid last week at Exeter. Shame he wasn't yet fit for 90minutes and had to come off.

Get rid.
Dont need another sicko on the payroll.
Dont understand where all this 'quality player' crap has come from.
Burton season ticket holder friend of mine who's judgement is to be trusted says he was very much average for them in L2.
i would prefer not to.

He looked pretty solid to me on Saturday and they didn't score whilst he was on the pitch. Evans appears to like him and his is the opinion that matters.

Maybe, but Bennett is an ever present this season and Taft ?

It befuddles me how some people think a player is better than another after watching him play for 60 minutes. Not saying Taft can't be better but Bennett has played every game this season and how many games has Taft played to be properly judged on?

Not convinced, wait and see if he can get fully fit. Bennett is miles in front but could replace Collins.
