    Opta stats

    I hate to single individuals out in a team game, but l would love someone to give the stats on Ross Chisholm's season.
    How many goals? How many shots? How many shots on goal? How many passes complete? How many minutes on the park?
    In my opinion he has been THE major letdown of Paul Sheerin's managerial career and a significant contributor to our current league position.

I can remember a fair number of goals that Chisholm contributed to with these breaks down the wing. However, now we have Cook as our usual left winger and he is far more a traditional winger and Chisholm doesn't have the space to break into.

    Chisholm also kept it very simple in his first spell which was a bit easier when the players in front of him were Falky, Sheerin, Doris and S****ie who were a bit more creative. Maybe he feels as captain it's up to him drive the team forward so he's taking more gambles. Maybe he should just be looking to find Linn and Cook early and keep it simple.

    His current performances don't merit a starting spot but if he is to play, he should be playing a deeper role, alongside Nicoll. This might a
