    Is our League 1 winning side BETTER than our current side?

      That is just starting 11.

      I would say they are about the same, however we had a goals in Murray and Barnes.

      Greer has a couple of years what he did back then.

      and Murray, Barnes, Bridcutt, Noone and Bennett have all played / will have played in the premier league since then.

      Would fancy our side now to beat that side. Buckley could potentially tear Painter a new one.

      Both sides would be let down with a GK howler.

      Close games but over a season our current side would be a few places above the L1 side IMO

      On what evidence are you basing the verdict that Toko is inferior to (a 21 year old) Bridcutt, or that 16 goal Championship striker O'Grady is inferior to 20 goal League One striker Ashley Barnes?
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      It is my opinion.

      Barnes sold for a higher fee with 6 months on his contract remaining. Barnes wasn't really used as a striker, and had a return of 81 games, 31 goals in the league. Far better than COG career striker rate. Barnes is also a few years younger.

      If Toko was as good as Bridcutt he would have been wanted by a top tier side.

      An older Greer does not make him the same Greer.

      Bridcutt, Noone and Barnes weren't wanted by top tier sides back then either.

      If you're judging the league 1 side from how good they've turned out be then fair enough, but it puts players such as Toko at a bit of a disadvantage. If he's not as good as Bridcutt is now (which we don't actually know), I'm willing to bet he's better than Bridcutt was back then...so which way are you looking at it?

      Pretty sure we had a similar poll this time last year. We'll get players in before the end of the transfer window and it'll be a pointless thread. IMO like
