Better than Mark Roberts.
Your hands-down winner.

Ellis put his head through everything towards the end of the season. He knew the club and playing style and would have been a welcome addition in my view. Though I can sort of see why you might 'aim for better' it still remains that Roberts was a last minute addition from memory and so originally Cooper went for Collins and some kids on loan.

To be honest there's a lot of talk about the players not being good enough but it's the same mistakes that were made last season.

Clough, Racine, Pinnock, Tilt, Ellis, Bennett, Monthe, Iacovitti, Roberts, Collins, Fitzwater and anyone I have missed. They were all stood accused at one point while playing CB I the last 13 months. It's how we set up a lot of the time as apposed to individual ability. If you aren't protected by midfield etc then you will get pulled apart. The zonal marking doesn't seem to work either. Nor does changing you back four so much or your goalkeeper.

Mark Ellis is exactly what we need at the moment. No nonsense defender who can, you know... Defend. He wasn't special but no doubt better than what we have now.

He's gone to Orient so that's that. Time to move on.

Just remember the awful spell we had without Pinnock last year. We had Ellis and had made no difference at all. Ellis as as good as we already have.

I thought that the transfer and loan windows had closed. How can this happen? Can we get players in on loan?

The National League have different rules I believe and can still get loan players in, ie he could not have come to us on loan, that goes with Pinnock as well. We can only get unattached players in as is the case with Osbourne joining us last week.

I have seen Ellis at Carlisle three times this season, he has been pretty good but eratic, given Mom in one game. Apparently he had a fall out with Manager Keith Curle last season. The arrival of Veteran centre back Clint Hill has shunted him out.
I thought he did well for us last season but doesn't seem to stand up too well when things aren't going too well so prob not a good choice for the current side.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
