    I think he was on a one month loan. Played on Boxing day against Guiseley so the loan must be up now.
    anybody know?

    I thought I heard that it has been extended...may be wrong though.

    Was thinking the same about Thewlis as he is only with us for a month apparently.

    He's shite, he's poor and he hasnt even scored a goal. It's Paul Clayton...........Paul Clayton.

    I'm sure that Thewlis is permanent and Nyoni/Gascoigne are loans?

    Townfan,

    Strikers are judged on goals. And for us, he has had 7 games, and not scored any goals. To add to this, he starts ahead of Walshaw, who is in double figures already this season? And if played regular, it would be 20 by now?

    Just me being cynical, but Walshaw is a better option than Clayton.

    I will go against the grain here by saying I prefer Clayton as he puts alot more pressure on the defenders than Walshaw....Yea he could do with sticking a few chances away but he is the type of player, almost bully like that we need leading the front.....Obviously Wally is a great finisher but he doesn't put himself around enough for me.

    Is it possible for Wally and Clayton to play on the same pitch at the same time ?

    They did away at Barrow. Wally had a decent enough game; Clayton was superb that day, standing up to the physical approach of the home side and leading the way in an excellent rearguard action. I couldn't argue he has been prolific in front of goal though.

    With so many comings and goings it would be helpful if we could have clarification from someone (the club?) about who's on loan or who has signed, if on loan how long for, who's been loaned out by us, where to and for how long etc.

    Clayton is absolute quality, he gives everything. He wins every header, he holds the ball up and lays it off well. He harries the defenders. Yes goals are important, but wins are more so and he was a key reason why Town won on Saturday. He flew in to the tackles all game, he gave absolutely everything. When the game finished he beat his chest and came over to the Town fans- class. Wally is quality too but a different sort of striker, a finisher rather than a target man. I'd like to see them play together, but realistically Clayton should start and Simon probably won't change the team as currently their is a winning formula. Hopefully the goals will also come for Clayton too soon.

    From what I've seen I've also been impressed by Clayton - not overly concerned with his goalscoring record at this stage. Boston had two men on him for most of the game which tells you where they thought the threat came from. It's also the reason some of the younger lads had such success. His link up play was about the best you'll see at this level. However, I do wonder what weaver will do to him by the end of he season - I'd suggest putting ear plugs in if I was Paul and just play on instinct.

    Walshaw on the other hand is a lost cause now and needs to be moved on. A complete waste of talent unfortunately.

    Well, thats me told then by you lot.

    I just feel that at this level, strikers have to be judged on their goal return. This season, Walshaw has 12, Clayton has 0.

    I dont know what the situation with Walshaw is, but one thing I do know is that he needs to be utilised in the team, rather than letting somebody who I believe is our biggest earner sat on the bench. He doesnt just play as a striker, he can play on the wing also. On the basis of goal returns, Walshaw is a more proven option to fire us up the table, but I can see why Simon likes Clayton.

    A lot of you do value Clayton, and I think he is a physically strong player, who offers something different, but the most important thing to me is getting the ball in the back of the net, as that is what wins you games. At this level, Walshaw is as prolific as they come, Clayton is not.

    All Walshaw needs is a run in the first team, and he would soon be back amongst the goals.

    However, although I do think Walshaw is better than Clayton, I can see why Simon would be resistant to change his starting 11 at this moment in time.

    Gainsborough will be a further indication of what the youngsters are capable of. If another win is on the cards, then I may start looking at the League table once again.

    Yes, pleased about this. He has done well in my opinion (altho' a goal or two would be nice!). I would like to see him and Walshaw played together. Thewlis has done well, and is clearly one for the future, but we surely cannot leave one of the league's big hitters on the bench for much longer.

    Fully agree with the above comments. I think Clayton has shown commitment and worked hard for us. With his past record surely goals will come. Good luck to him - but let's have Wally back in the side as well.
