All opinions of course but the fact Rawson is being mentioned in a player of the season discussion boggles the mind. Was an absolute liability first half of the season, and since Clough has come in has taken the step up to 'average'.
So I assume you wouldn't keep him next season then? Clearly we need better than "average". It is likely you'll be in a very small club who does not think we should keep Rawson next season
Farrend Rawson has been better than "average" since Nigel Clough arrived. He's been one of our most consistent players and the only two below average performances were against Cambridge at home and Harrogate away.
I've got him down for being partly responsible for 9 goals under Nigel Clough and some of those may be a bit harsh:
Col U (Home) - Allowed Luke Norris to run behind him but Kellan Gordon also did not track back and Marek Stech came charging out of his goal.
Crawley (Home) - Ball went over his head for Max Watters' 2nd goal but Kellan Gordon should have been covering behind. Marek Stech way off his line.
Grimsby (Home) - Pushed in the back by Onura Edwards which ref did not spot
Scunthorpe (Away) - Scored an own goal
Col U (Away) - Frank Nouble's shot deflected off his boot past Stone. Should he have blocked the shot? Unlucky?
Cambridge (Home) - Should have blocked Harvey Knibbs' shot in last minute along with Ryan Sweeney but game was over.
Harrogate (Away) - Poor defensive header along with Ryan Sweeney which allowed Aaron Martin to score
Bradford (Away) - Beaten to a header on edge of area by Canavan but Jordan Bowery should have been marking Danny Rowe and cleared it. Only header he lost all night. Played well.
Crawley (Away) - Caught slightly up the pitch at throw in but Kellan Gordon and Marek Stech should have prevented the goal
