2018/19 player season ratings.
Disclaimer: other opinions are available.
Nordtfeldt: 5/10. A very good shot stopper capable of some brilliant saves. Sadly, let down by a total lack of ability to command his penalty area in a division where you have to be able to deal with aerial balls. Needs replacing.
Mulder: 7/10. Looked like find of the season until Potter dropped him, was 9/10 at that point. But seemed to struggle with confidence after being axed. Worth persevering with, even if as a very able No2.
Naughton: 7/10. Usual lapses in concentration on and off throughout the season, but on the whole acquitted himself much better at this level and very versatile as well, was excellent in midfield. Useful to have around at this level.
John: 3/10. Sorry, but hasn't looked anywhere near up to it. Think Potter knows too. Would get rid, if we can get an upgrade.
Roberts: 8/10. Mr Consistency. Again, asked to play a number of positions, always acquitted himself well. A real find.
Olsson: 6/10. Did ok in early part of season but injury prone and I wouldn't be in a rush to give him a new deal.
VdHoorn: 8/10. Very consistent and looked comfortable at this level. Should be made club captain next year.
Rodon: 7/10. Another good find. Shame he couldn't play more. Lot to learn but bags of ability.
CCV: 6/10. A bit beige for me. Sometimes looked good. Sometimes shocking. No tears shed if not made a permanent deal.
Fulton: 6/10. A limited but honest player who never let us down effort wise just hasn't got the required quality.
Byers: 7/10. I have really enjoyed watching him. You can see at times he's got loads to learn but the quality is clearly there.
Grimes: 8/10. Definitely our best midfielder, in my view not the second coming of Leon that some have had him down as, but definitely a player we want to be building around for next season.
Fer: 6/10. Saw nothing I didn't already know - occasional flashes but mostly poor. Wouldn't give him a new contract, far too flaky and Potter dropped a massive bollock making him club captain.
Montero: 6/10. Was mostly brilliant, when fit, which (unfortunately) wasn't often enough, again. I wouldn't give him a new deal. Time to move on.
Dyer: 7/10. An old stalwart having an Indian summer and made a big difference second half of season. Worth another year.
Routledge: 7/10. See Dyer.
Asoro: 4/10. I have struggled to see anything there but maybe Potter can work his magic on him next year.
McKay: 5/10. Has actually made some very key contributions at times such as winner at Bolton, for that I give him an extra mark, but otherwise as underwhelming as Asoro. Seems to cower in a fight. Don't like that.
James: 9/10. Imo player of the year, just been an absolute joy to watch and his development month on month has been astonishing. A Premier League player in waiting.
Celina: 7/10. A frustrating player who can drift in and out of games but I have enjoyed more than I have not. Clearly talented just needs to apply it more often.
McBurnie: 7/10. Again, I think loads to learn especially build up and hold up play, but you can't argue with the goals. An old fashioned poacher.
CBR: 5/10. I give him an extra mark for effort and work rate but he's not a Championship player in all honesty. We need better cover than this.
I haven't reviewed Harries, Fernandez, Carroll, Narsingh, Bony, Dhanda (or anyone else I've missed) simply because they didn't get enough game time to warrant a fair mark.
Manager, Graham Potter: 9.5/10. Manager of the Year. Loses half a mark for Fer captaincy decision, and occasionally eating himself tactically, but has produced the best football since Laudrup in extremely challenging circumstances.
