Alex Henshall

Post by PierremontQuaker03 » Sun Sep 30, 2018 4:04 pm

Is he is the next James Caton? You look at his history on Wikipedia and he has a really good pedigree (even better than Catons) but his career just never got going.
He is also constantly injured, which again you wonder whether his body is strong enough for playing football.

Looking at Wikipedia, if he plays two more games for us then we'll be the club he has most appearances for!

Yep, early signs are that Henshall is Caton v2.0. Oh hang on that was Mills, he was useless too.

Jesus we've had some crap left wingers in the last couple of seasons, the only one who looked anything like was Gillies...in August and April.

I agree Harry! Gabbiadini took a while before he found his feet.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Hughes is a hero now, they have to find another one to stick the knife into.

and David Currie couldn't trap a ball when he first joined us.

Arron Brown too when he first joined?

Exactly people expect them to just fit straight in and be world beaters FFS Give the lads time and I'm sure they will be ok

Not questioning the lads ability - but he hasn't been fit for a while even when at Nuneaton - although he has relocated which I admire - he could be another Caton, looks good one week, terrible the next, then injured the next ...repeat.

Henshall having a newborn won’t help. I remember been utterly exhausted. Imagine adding 3 x 3 hour journeys for football per week

Henshall lives local. He sounds a bit of a soft touch tbh, any little knock and he’s out. I think he needs to man up a bit.

Sorry yes, of course he does. The point still stands but without my faux pas
