How is this guy still our first choice LB? He's been hopeless for far too long now. I remember in the NL seeing young Eddie Clarke getting a game and thinking we've finally managed to move on from Rides but no, here he still is, giving away so many cheap goals and offering very little going forward! Criminal that we let Eddie go at the time, would have developed into a top full back if he was playing every week.
Rides must have some serious dirt on Mickey in my opinion! hope the Borthwick Jackson (twitter) rumours are true...

How did we “let Eddie go”, when is the reality going to skin in with our fans that we are a small club, with a small pot of funds and can only offer what we can offer and also have to consider that any offers of contracts to players impact what other players we can recruit by spending wage budget so if MM did not see “Young Eddie” as an immediate first team player why on earth would we break the bank to match bigger richer clubs offers and prevent ourselves bringing in players like McCullogh, Morris, Monthe, Caprice etc who were so valuable to our promotion from League 2. Because it is an absolute fact that wasting the money that brought them in on Eddie we would absolutely be lining up against a league club 2 on Saturday and possibly a NL club. And whilst Rides maybe a “liability” he is a player who is proven at this level, he may have his limitations the manager is fully aware of these and how they will impact on the team as opposed to putting all his dollars on red gambling that the occasional mazey run or show of promise will come good. Personally id prefer we invest our wage budget on proven to layers fully aware of what we are getting.
