Tbh Howells has been pretty decent of late but we went through a period of conceding a lot of goals from crosses by the winger he was failing to stop. It seems to have stopped, probably as he's got a lot fitter and sharper.

When was that?

Specific examples? You just have to watch more than one game to see he is consistently the weak link. Admittedly both he and Ling during the first part of the season weren't helped by our wingers just standing around when we lost possession but Howells is often beaten or losing the ball high up the pitch and out of position. I'm also definitely not willing to watch some of the shit I have already seen to find examples but I recall him causing us to concede at one point by taking a poor throw 80 yards up the pitch. Feel free to point out a position we are weaker in outside of up front though.

The amount of headers/volleys we've conceded that were 5 yards from goal is ridiculous. If cousins ever came to claim a cross and help his defence out he'd be a fairly decent keeper..
Robson for me, Honourable mention to Boucs.
Cousins is a fairly decent keeper, especially for this level. He’s not the tallest or most physical so he won’t come steaming out for crosses if he isn’t sure. Just plays to his strengths. We was spoilt for years with Robbo who would come for crosses and 9 times out of 10 catch it or since it to a safe area. We haven’t had anyone who can do that since.

Well since Torquey away i find it hard to pick anybody who has pulled on a shirt in tge name of Dagenham and Redbridge FC.

It is only since then has the true meaning of being a Dagger been shown in my eyes.

Despite not knowing at one stage if they were even going to be paid they rolled up their sleeves and shown me what this Club is all about.

Yes they are certainly far from the most talented we have ever seen collectively but they are up there with the best of them when it comes to heart and effort.

We have had some disappointment and got a bit of a chasing in one game, but i their effort and commitment has been magnificent.

For that reason i cant pick anybody

Spot on there Tommy about M.C, think he's easily one of the top two keepers in this league running par along side Ashmore of Ebbsfleet, hard decision to peg him in second as in my eyes another vote for Craig Robson here, the general, and thankfully have not lost his great talent over recent troubled times.

I've gone Robbo, Cousins, Feriji. Jake Howells wasn't far away, yes he's not the greatest but I think he's been fairly consistent and I've seen all but one home game, a few away games and I don't recall him making too many errors.

I'm a fan of Bouchard but has gone slightly off the boil. I genuinely thought about Ferrier for third as besides a few goals I loved his level of determination and enthusiasm. But as he's gone I couldn't.
