brum exposed our lack of real defenders last night. there goal was text book for them. get the only cb out wide against their best wide man. put one to the back post for their target man up against a 5ft 9in cm playing in defence. jukes easiest goal of the season.
if ayala was on the pitch with gibbo and fry, they wouldnt have had a sniff all game.
i was watching ry on the left and seen how uneasy he is using his left foot. he often turned back to his right foot when a nice ball down the line was on. its not good having him there. johnson was like the invisible man to. cant remember him being near fry all night. coulson will be back next game thankfully. hopefully with gibbo left side.
I'd have to disagree with both parts of that statement. Paddy has been one of the few players running through walls for us this season, and some of his performances have been immense. Though I agree his penalty taking needs work!
I think most Championship managers would welcome McNair straight into their matchday 18s, and I think it would be difficult to replace his versatility and commitment. And while I agree he's not a Roberts or Ramirez-style onto-the-attack playmaker, I think he's one of the most important players in our youthful and inexperienced squad. I wouldn't let him go unless someone makes us an offer we can't refuse.
