I'd still like to see Wagstaff on the bench: Bring him in for the last 10 games

edited March 2012 in General Charlton
For all you Wagstaff moaners out there, there are times when he can be anonymous - though never defensively lazy. Hopefully Powell and the coaching team, have had him practising crosses around 5-10 yards back from the box. If he get's this skill then he'll be able to utilise his pace and get behind more often, as defenders won't just have to concentrate on being burnt but stand up for the cross sometimes.

Personally the bench lacks players who can assist. Waggy scores more goals than Clarke anyway! Joking aside I would like to see Waggy back in the team, and properly evaluated for next season, and also available to come on for JJ very early. Playing on the left, cutting inside and shooting should be a strength. Maybe he can't play on the left in training - I believe he's played there as a sub this season? Still would like to see it.

    I do like him but the couple of times I have seen him this season he has spent more time standing next to the referee having a moan than he has actually playing football.

    Agreed, think he's still got something to offer as he us still young, surely he's more of a threat coming off the bench than Leon Clarke!

    No go for me, when he came on a few weeks ago against rochdale(?) he showed exactly why he isn't in the squad, he just fall's on the floor and moans

    Not sure how anyone can still think Green is the better option.
    So late in tackles that he always gets carded, doesn't link up with Solly leaving massive spaces on the wing and his crosses might be good but he doesn't have the ball for long enough to make any.
    Bring back Waggy - perfect he might not be, worse than Green he isn't, and a Charlton boy he most certainly is. Why doesn't that count for something these days?

    But he showed early on what he can do. I'm unsure of him as an impact sub, never really done much as a sub, but if he wants to stay he has to prove he can do this. I'd rather give him the chance ahead of anyone bar Danny Haynes in the present squad.

    this, unless he's learnt how to cross a ball then it's a no from me

    This for me too I'm afraid,

    Quick he is, quick to release the ball he most certainly isnt

    What and miss out on all those pinpoint crosses that Green puts in the box?

    Powell needs to take a look at the wide positions. On both sides the main attacking threat is the fullback.

    Green is still the better option because even when he is below par, he is still capable of a killer pass or cross. Waggy has a big heart and will run all day for you and is also better defensively, but as a provider, which wingers should be Green is far superior.

    I see your Green point and raise you - even when Waggy is below par he can come up with a goal.

    Read the post please, it's to re-integrate Waggy into the team via him sitting on the subs bench. We need to nurse JJ through to the end of the season, he won't play all and may often need to come off very early. Haynes can go up front in a two or three, or play on the wing. Waggy needs to be able to play left or right wing, if he doesn't he won't be used much in the champ. He was awful early days when he played on the left, I want to see if he can cope.

    And no I never said for him to replace Green, do not want that when Green's fit and not suspended.

    I would definately like him there if his head is there. the last few times he has come on though he has totally lacked confidence and not really produced.

    Was a good impact sub in previous years.
    however powell's biggest weakness as a manager seems to be his use of subs.

    Personally think Waggy was harshly treated and was certainly playing better when he was dropped than Green is playing now.

    Green was brought in for a decent amount of money to supply deadly crosses but Im just not seeing it.

    Waggy getting slagged off for not doing too well in his 20 minute cameo for his first game in 6 months is laughable really.

    Its a weak link area whoever plays there.

    Lloyd Sam isn't getting a game at Leeds perhaps we should get him back.

    He knows SCP and all that....

    I thought Waggy was looking good at the start of the season and was a breath of fresh air, however since losing his place to Green whenever he comes on he seems to fall over, moan, fallover, moan!!
    I would hope the management/coaching team can knock this out of his game as i still think he has a part to play.
    He may not cross the ball as well as Green but he has pace and energy to burn, helps out defensivley and on his day can be direct, effective and score goals.
    He is not the first wide man to be accused of being inconsistant and can't cross. Downing. Lennon and Walcott spring to mind

    Agree 100%

    I agree with the first bit, I like to see him on the bench !

    I also like to see Lloyd Sam at Leeds.......

    Like Shaun Newton, Waggy is never going to be able to cross a decent ball because of the way his body moves. His running style doesn't lend itself to body swerves and similarly he hasn't the ability to wrap his foot around a ball which requires you to plant your standing foot at an angle. He relies on getting round the back and producing a "straight" cross.

    That said, Green is not producing, nor defending and I'd like Waggy back.

    agree with this

    he might be quick but when he gets the ball he just runs at the corner flag and has no end product, green is a lot more creative and can actually cross, hasn't really been doing it recently but would rather have green than waggy every day of the week and as a sub haynes can do a job on the right and is a lot more direct, quicker and from what i have seen can cross decently enough.
