    I was just thinking wasn't it really lucky for us that Kyle Reid had some excellent performances prior to and including the cup final. Such a shame his form has dipped after the final....

    Apart from the few good games he has had this year the only benefit in signing him has been that he didn't tear us a new one twice this season

    I'd honestly try and palm him of to someone, very few flashes of anything over the season.
    Become frustrating again, in the final he'd be knocking it past his man and beating him, again now as before he puts the brakes on and plays inside or back killing any counter.
    The pick of TM's summer signings.... 2 year deal to!! cheers.

    Sort of player that would easily get another club in L1 (probably oxford after that performance v them at Wembley!)

    I believe Robins has seen enough of this chancer and he will be sold this summer.

    Downed tools since the cup final.

    Robins isn't stupid Reid's finished now.

    Downed tools before the cup final too until there was a sniff of Wembley in the air.

    Don Goodman on Sky Sports was saying he had never ever seen him put a shift in before until he saw him in the EFL final.

    I would get rid for sure. We cannot afford players who only turn it on every 7 or 8 games for us.

    I quite like him - just need him motivated and he's a bloody good winger. Surely worth holding on to him in league 2?

    He never tore us anything for Bradford, he was tricky but had little end product. No place for him next season especially as he'll be one of the higher paid players (won't say earners)

    Falls and trips over at the Ricoh so he's fucked at Accrington in November!
    Time to cut the dead wood who have not shown much this season.

    Get rid, he'll be on a wedge and someone will take him off our hands.

    He's probably refusing to perform until the fans learn to spell his name right.

    Ahh, so does that also explain Marcus Tudguy, Jordan Turnball and Vladimir Ghadzhev?

    Had we spelled those 4 names right and we would have won the league as champions. Yay!!

    He's the one who needs to learn to spell his name correctly.

    Kyel is an alternate form of Kyle (Scottish, Gaelic): from "caol".

    Lacks motivation as constantly playing with poor players - on his day easily the best winger in league 1 and more than capable of playing regularly in the championship - Robins can get the best out of him when he gets a decent team together (if and when) as this current team is pretty darn poor (hence bottom of the league) if he doesn't do it with us a championship or high division 1 team will come knocking

    Yes, unplayable at times, but those times were quarter past three and then twenty past four and then again at twenty five to five.

    He's just shocking. Those that laughably suggested this waste of space was a good player crying out for a manager like robins have been left with an ostrich egg on their face.

    Lazy, erratic and I can't even see much pace or creativity.

    Let's hope someone takes him.

    Yep-came with the reputation but everyone at the clubs before said the same about him.

    Can't remember too much he's done outside two belting crosses to George Thomas in consecutive JPT games and that match a few weeks ago when he seemed to take the game on by himself and scored a cracker, but that game just made it all the more frustrating that we rarely got to see that player.

    Won't be sad to see him go, expected much more of him but it's literally been 3 or 4 games and I have seen reports of him being on a decent wage.

    I'd be happy with a Sordell type deal, trade him for a couple of solid L2 players.

    People from at the club mentioned he was on a decent whack for league 1.

    If we can palm him off to some unsuspecting muggy club, the wage saved will be enough for two average-skilled but higher-effort L2 players.

    Friday summed him up for me. With us needing a goal to try and cling on to survival, he comes on with fresh legs, and gets the ball in a fairly dangerous position, but instead of trying to beat his man or get a crossin, he played a 2 yard ball to Haynes, who was virtually on one leg at the time and didn't make a run into space or anything.

    A total lack of accountability. Let him go elsewhere.

    Sickens me to see a talented player who only performs when he feels like it.

    Get rid of him, he's a waste of budget.
