Thread: Ralls

  1. #1

    Ralls

    Is he really one of our better players?

    Dependable, gives his all, but personally I donít think he has the touch for a centre midfielder but lack of pace for the DM or CAM role that he played yesterday.

    For me he just doesnít fit.

    Good at this level , we've not got many decent midfielders, he just lacks that clever Tomlin killer touch , as we saw yesterday when he had a great chance to score , great first touch from Moore however not a great second touch though, he does work hard , and is a great team player and valuable squad player .

    Ralls is suffering from being played as a number ten because we don't have a proper alternative to Tomlin. He'd perform much better playing in his natural position. It's like when we played Bruno Ecuele Manga at right back.

    Could we try Murphy or Hoilett at 10 think they may have played there in the past , only suggest this as they do have the skill sets, but not the experience in that position .?

    I find Ralls very one paced tho he does the basics well.
    He can get up and down but although he gets the odd goal now and again, he does lack the creative nous to be able to carry off the play making role.

    We desperately need a fit Tomlin or a replacement otherwise we shall come up short again.

    I can count Murphy's good performances on one hand.

    To answer your question, yes.

    He is indeed very one paced, lacks composure too. It's not very often that you think to yourself..."That was clever by Ralls" or "That was nicely done". I just find him very average in what he does.

    Re: Ralls

    I'm no Ralls fan but for someone who isn't a number 10 got in dangerous position 4 times. 3 times his touch let him down, although I think for the pass from Moore his first touch was probably too precise leaving it to close to him.
    The other time he didn't get the pass.

    He is one paced but does the basics well

    Re: Ralls

    Yes hes one of our better players. Hes our best central midfielder.

    Hes not a no.10 but played well yesterday and made some good runs.

    Smithies Morrison Ralls Moore are our key players. Tomlin would be if he could keep fit.

    Re: Ralls

    Heís been one of our best players for a few years

    Re: Ralls

    I reckon Vaulks would do a better job than Ralls there, but Hoilett or (an in form) Murphy would fit

    He might not be able to pass the ball like a Whitts or a McPhail, but that doesn't mean he can't pass.

    Yes. He certainly isn't a 10 or a playmaker, but he's a very good midfielder at this level
