    Pelly

    Posted by Bobble Hat on 8/6/2021, 9:52:34

    It is about time we started to let him know that he IS wanted here and would be a massive loss if he went.
    Start a social media love in for him....

    He has been an integral part of our rise from conference to championship and is still a very valuable member of the squad...
    He can do a better job than many of the fringe squad players

    Come on NJ , put your arm around him and do your best to keep him here..

      I'd prefer he stayed but if he leaves, then we move on. No one person is bigger than the club. He's been loyal and a great player for us over the years.

        He doesn't score...

        He doesn't assist...

        His defensive stats are slightly better than Tunnicliffe and Berry and he played twice the amount of games...

        Prefer we get Allan Campbell and have someone who will improve over the next 5 years...

        Should have sold him last summer when he wouldn't sign a new deal...

        Yes, he can be a matchwinner but he also loses the ball a lot, mis-controls it, and goes missing in games. Which is fair enough most players have a game like that and if hes like most players he's replaceable. The difference between Pelly and someone like KDH is even when KDH wasn't on his best form his worst was still about average....

        Whats the reason for not signing? If he wants to play at a "higher level" fair enough, all the best....should have got a fee for him last year or even in January...

            I think that is a very fair assessment. If he goes then thanks but we move on. I can't understand the obsession with James Justin either. He has gone fair play to him but we support Luton not Liecester. Ruddock going isn't the end of the world.

              Got to say I 100% agree. Absolutely nothing against Justin at all, of course, and I hope we earn a few more quid out of him but that's as far as it goes

              All of that more...

                You've had a bit of stick for these comments, but I have to say I think your assessment is spot on.

                Too many people still going by past and recent performances.

                I'd be happy for him to stay I the squad, but not as a definite starter.

                    How many MOTM over the season?

                    If he isnt a specialist in any area ie goals/assits/blocks/interceptions and he dosent get man of the match often then hes replaceable.

                    Hes a decent player but I think more people would be more upset that Moncur left....

                      Are you seriously basing anything whatsoever on the MotM vote. Some of the choices are notoriously ridiculous. In the Rotherham home game, the four options included Rea, who had an absolutely awful game, but not Adebayo who, to me, was the clear winner.

                      I recall a game at Accrington where the match sponsors (some of whom post on here) gave the MotM to Omar Beckles who had scored an own goal for us. Pearson scored a good goal for them in that game.

                        HM uses this sort of statistic only when it suits, itís a bit like using players appearances on Question of Sport as some sort of measure of a clubís success

                          No...

                          Use the MOTM stat anyway you want... official/unofficial/personal choice and you will get the same answer which is likely maybe 2 or so matches.

                          My point is still valid....

                        We as fans need be careful what we wish for. Just because we have had a few good seasons in the Championship does not give us a right to stay up and there is no guarantee that new signings will give us the consistency and performance levels required. Thatís what we have to accept as a club of our size at this level.

                        Pelly has been a key part of the spine of the team for past few seasons hence why he is attracting interest from other clubs.

                        Dismissing Pelly as easily replaceable is crazy and simply not true - if that was the case other clubs would have no interest in him.

                                Tell me what he is good at compared to the rest of the team?

                                The only acceptable answer is his influence on the dressing room as stat for stat hes not better than what we have.

                                Hes not a goalscoring midfielder

                                Hes not a playmaking midfielder

                                Hes not a midfield enforcer - Rea's stats are three times Pellys for blocks, interceptions etc

                                Hes a decent championship footballer but not irreplaceable.

                                  Tell us about Allan Campbell, his capabilities at playing at Championship level and who will improve even further. Think he had a decent season for Motherwell who finished 8 out of 12 teams in that top quality league.

                                  Love people who throw stats, McGregor was also shit because he didn't assist anything and scored 1 goal.

                                    Its considered by a lot of people he has the potential to in the play premier league...

                                    Hes likely to improve over the next five years...

                                    Hes available on a free with realtively cheap wages....

                                    Stats? Thats why the club has focused on building a data science team for assessing players...they are not biased and easily comparable...

                                    Explain what Pelly does better then the other midfielders? Granted he probably has an influence on the dressing room but teams evolve and this year is setting the foundations of the next 5 years as the 5 year plan from league two has been fulfilled and there are only a couple of players left from that time....

                                      So if the data science team suggest Pellyís stats are better than anything else we are likely to be able to bring in it would make sense to offer him a new contract and try and keep him. Or are you suggesting that Lutonís data science team and the decisions the management are making with this info is flawed when it comes to Pelly?

                                      What I can see, even without a spreadsheet of Football Manager style stats, is an exciting player who can pick up the ball in midfield and with his sheer strength and athleticism drive the team up the pitch helping to change the tempo of the game - and he can keep doing that for 90 minutes.

                                        No my point is he's replaceable.

                                        If he hasn't signed a contract in the last 12 months then that would suggest he doesn't want to.

                                        I think hes a decent player but likewise hes a squad player if he goes to any of the current top championship clubs and if we improve he'll be a squad player here.

                                        If the club gave him a contract extension offer and he hasn't signed it in 12 months the club should move on and get a replacement and ideally, he should have been sold for a fee last summer or in January.

                                        How long does it take to think about an offer? Surely these can be sorted out on a weekday afternoon with a 2 week decision limit.

                                          Dan Potts and Pelly.

                                          The rest joined the season after or later....

                                              Can't quite remember how Brentford do it but they identify targets through other more complex means than just using assists and goals stats. The personality of individuals is an important thing too which I know is part of Luton's recruitment philosophy too

                                              We sing songs for him in the ground.
                                              The club probably do put their arm around him (he has been here a while)
                                              We probably have offered him a contract.

                                              If after all this he decides to go then good luck to him.

                                              But I'm not going to suck him off on social media. Modern times I guess but the idea sounds absolutely absurd.

                                                Nah, you're alright

                                                Players come and go. I'll be disappointed if Pelly goes but the last time I was genuinely gutted a player left us was when Tim Breacker was sold in 1990

                                                  No player is whoever it is bigger than the club. Pelly is a decent player if he is weighing up his options to stay or go he should make his mind up soon. It seems we will lose a few players more before the start of the season. Where in any job can you say to the employee hang on I am waiting for the right job to come along before I leave. Pelly needs to be given a time limit to say if he is staying or going same applys to tunnicliffe.
