On his day very good. Not a lot of end product though. Wish we'd kept him. You've got yourselves a full international.

As Jeff said, on his day he could be excellent, but his end product, both in terms of delivery of balls into the box and picking the right time to shoot, was disappointing. You can also see why he's not been able to make it at a higher level as he is a bit lightweight as well.

He's replaceable in my opinion.

Anthony Thomas will be the bigger loss of the two for me.

He reminded me of Paul Adolphe and Danny Julienne. No questioning his ability to beat a man, but after promising so much, the final ball was so often lacking. I really liked him though and am sorry to see him go.

However, as Steve says, I'm more sorry to see Thommo go. I'm sure I wasn't alone in thinking we'd signed a bit of a prima-donna after the end of his loan spell a few years back. But his attitude was absolutely spot on when out of the side at the start of the season. Take your chance and score some goals - that's what he did. He'll be a big loss I think.

Plus, he scored live on telly while I was getting ready for my wedding for Barnet against Dagenham. Not only did he score from a good 35 yards or so - he also broke the netting :)

But good luck to both lads next season. I've no grumbles against them leaving.

I'm much less disappointed to see these two leave than Jack Bennett, who I think has the potential to be a very good player. Bryan for me would beat a man then try to beat him again instead of play the right pass or create anything, doubtless he'll score a hat trick against us for Hampton when they take their annual six points off us now though!

Thomas was an enigma, lazy looking and sulky one minute, absolutely brilliant the next. His Cup hat trick off the bench against Biggleswade was absolutely cracking, but I never saw him as that 30 goal a season man that Jefferson Louis was for us.
