“His whole game has improved, every single aspect. He can score every type of goal: tap-ins, screamers and team goals” – Ryan on Jamie Reid

TT Podcast man Ryan presents the TUFC Player Ratings for October 19:
Lucas Covolan Cavagnari: 5.5
It hasn’t been the best month for Lucas. His seemingly unwillingness to come off his line puts his defenders under unneeded pressure and that has been reflected in the scores from the TT crew. It seems Shaun Mac is primed and ready to take back the number 1 jersey, as he started the FA Cup victory over Boreham and Tuesday night’s win against Wrexham. Can the Brazilian regain his spot?
Ben Wynter: 6.3
Another solid month from Ben. It’s been said before by many people, but he really is destined for the Football League. Hopefully with us! He is improving game after game, the amount of times he pops up with a last minute tackle or block to deny what seems a nailed on goal just shows how clever a player he is. A 6.3 average rating is a disgrace, but I don’t chose the rating, I just talk about them!
Kyle Cameron: 7.1
Well done to Kyle firstly for that beard, it is beautiful and he should be very proud. Secondly he has been chosen as the October POTM. I think there was a long list to choose from as this has been a great month for the boys in Yellow. A solid month from our captain and he is another player who is going to be a Football League player very soon. Well done Cam.
Liam Davis: 6.6
You wait just over a year for a Liam Davis goal and then you get two in a month! Two very good strikes from our left back doesn’t paper over the cracks of a couple of bad games he’s had this month. Partly to blame for both the goals Fylde scored past us, miscommunication at the back as nods the ball clean through for the striker, and also the penalty for Boreham in the FA Cup where again miscommunication was his downfall, as neither him nor Mac could decide who wanted the ball before the opposing striker nipped in and was felled. He’ll turn it around and come back to his usual consistent good form.
Robbie Cundy: 6.8
Robbie “Colossus” Cundy, a great month from the big man. A set of very good performances for our Bristol loanee which put him very close to getting the POTM award. He probably only missed out due to a shaky performance against Wrexham. More of the same next month please Robbie!
Joe Lewis: 6.7
Joe has only really had his game time this month off the bench, but every time he comes on he does exactly what GJ wants him to do, steady the ship and help to see the game out. Good month Joe, hopefully a few starts coming up for him.
Kalvin Kalala: 6.4
French bloody Kalv, what are we going to do with you? One week he is a world beater and we feel lucky to have him, the next week I’ve phoned the police at 3:45pm on a Saturday to file a missing persons report. Please Kalvin please please become a consistent player, the sky is the limit for you if you can just turn in frequent good performances.
Matt Buse: 6.7
This is the month that Matt Buse announced himself as a National League player. A great month from the former Taunton man. He is growing into this side week in week out and becoming an imposing presence in our midfield. I think he would’ve won player of the month if he wasn’t given a low, and in my opinion completely unfair, rating after the Wrexham game.
Jake Andrews: 6.3
Alright, this is getting silly. Who does these player ratings?? (The TT Contributors! – Ed) Jake Andrews, the most consistent player in our team. Mr 7/10 minimum. I suppose he hasn’t exactly been the main man every game and sometimes it does seem he goes missing for a bit. Looking forward to seeing Jake build on a good start to the season.
Armani Little: 7.0
It has been a very welcome return to the squad for Armani since his hamstring injury. He slowly built up his match fitness through a couple of sub appearances before controlling the Barrow game with his 2 goals and sensational link-up play with Reidy. I am absolutely gutted about his latest hamstring injury which will put him out until Christmas.
Ben Whitfield: 6.4
I personally thought Ben had a good month, he maybe wasn’t the main man in every game but 6.4 is very harsh on him! A couple of goals and a very hard working month has really further endeared him to the Yellow Army and I look forward to seeing him get even better.
Frank Vincent: 6.5
Not the best month from Frank in the middle. He’s been a bit sloppy and too easily pushed off the ball recently when we’ve played the more physical sides. With the impending returns of Asa Hall and Connor Evans, I think Frankie’s days starting in the middle of the park are numbered. Sorry Frank!
Jamie Reid: 7.0
The main man, our go to guy. Another free scoring month for JR19 and he finds himself rightly in the mix for the league golden boot. He is going to get 25+ goals this season, mark my words. His whole game has improved, every single aspect. He can score every type of goal, tap-ins, screamers and team goals. He really is becoming a complete striker. Ran Kyle Cameron very close for POTM alongside Armani.
