I’ve always thought of Jackson as a good player who was ‘just passing through’ at the County. There didn’t seem to be any connection between the club and Jackson in the way there has been with other players. Is it just me who felt this way or am I wide of the mark?
Agree entirely with that. No criticism of Ryan Jackson, he always gave 100% and that was what we paid him for. It one way it was quite refreshing. Fans have a connection with the club, some players are fans and have a connection, some players develop an affection. However most players regard clubs as the company they work for, just like any employee.

Think you may be jumping to a conclusion about Lewis being dropped. Not on bench which would suggest an injury.
I guess he could be injured. But his defence last week is deserving of being dropped from the squad of 18... :)

Nothing wrong with that. I'm assuming his current deal at Sutton runs out in May and he'll seek another south east League Two club.
Edit: I do him a disservice. His two stints at Gillingham (four seasons) plus one at Cheltenham were in League One.
