Have to disagree here, Bannan as good as Modric???????????????
He's overrated by you and himself. He was a good player when he was on the left and we had Lee/Hooper/Wallace and FF playing little triangles and pressing together. Those days are gone forever and we now need a clear out. The constant taking the ball of our defence leaves no link between midfield and attack, his high floaty balls come off once or twice a match the rest go straight down the opposition's throats who attack us again, we win the ball back, it has to go through Bannan and repeat the cycle.
On Saturday we played high balls to a target man who even when he won the ball had no chance of laying off to our players, they didn't think on their feet to change the approach and I hate to say it but that's what Jos said. We've lost a lot of players of intelligence and spirit and have replaced them with fannies.
