It's very unfortunate that Byron Harrison made a bad mistake - and there is no doubt that it was a very bad miss - in his first start at Barnet, and that dominated any thoughts about his performance in that match. However, he played well enough in the preceding and following matches.
In effect, as he is on a short-term deal, he's on a trial (I am sure Phil Parkinson said the only way we can test potential new signings is to play them), and I have seen enough to say he's worthy of a further look, but not enough yet to say we should sign him on a longer term deal. He comes from London; is he still based there, does anyone know?

Sitting on the fence, I know...

Well that's gone right over your head. Analysing one of his early performances to counter the argument we should give him more than a handful of games before writing off doesn't really make sense. Look, he's played, what, three games for us and already showed improvement. Personally, I trust the judgement of that guy who's got us to 4th in the conference over the forum that lost its mind when Lawrence Taylor did some short passing.

Right, let's give new players a few games before deciding they're irredeemably terrible. Remember the flak Tony Thompson got when he first joined? What about Nicky Clee? Oneneedham, you were on Harrison's case before you even saw him play! You don't have to have one player you constantly advocate for dropping, you know.
Barnet away each side of half time. First effort body shape didnít resemble a strikers instinct and he let the defender get across him. The one just after half time was embarrassing. Kosylo put it on a plate. Appalling first touch but still had chance to bungle the ball in with a modicum of athleticism but chose to try and hold off the attacker who was behind him. I can spot a footballer. This guy ainít one at this level. I rated Nicky Clee the first time I saw him play. He had balance and could look up when he was running with the ball. To compare Harrison after a few games and Nicky Clee after a similar number of games is ludicrous. Barnet fans will fill anybody in about Harrisonís pros and cons. to endorse the opinion I have formed about him from what I have seen. Iíve picked a bit up since I saw my first professional football game 62 years ago. Be better off playing Simon Richmond or Saun Densmore up front.

Must say I'm a bit surprised that nobody has asked where Chris Senior is at the moment. 😄

Not a fan of square in round holes, so I'd been starting Harrison until a)Injury, b)has an absolute sh*tter

I hear you but Harrison is far from prolific and because we've not had much up top since Jordan left, people are getting excited because he held the ball up a couple of times.
I personally feel we would score more with those 4 starting or even Ceesay up top until we get the right man.
Can't justify someone like Colclough or Mooney sat on the bench for Harrison.
We basically need the next Walshaw in this team.

Can't we just play without a 9 like City?  ;D
We already do when Peers and Harrison play.

Do you not think Harrison held the ball up well last night?
Granted. Itís when he faces the goal weíre aiming to score at he worries me.

If he holds it up and brings the other top 4/5 players into the play in the last third he'll do for me

But for me we need Colclough, Hancock, Kossy and Mooney on the pitch. We would be far more dangerous with their quality.
Hanks best position is number 10 but as above his goals have been what you expect from a number 9.
