Very difficult for our central midfielders when they are outnumbered.

He ain't that physically strong so struggles when under pressure and has to pass back too much.

Nonsense.

Every time Butterfield got the ball he went forward. He went forward with the ball, his passing was always forward. Didnt do any worse than Kieran Lee IMO

Are you been serious

Haha.

 

Interesting what game some f our fans seem to watch isn't it.

Thought he was very poor today, and he doesn't even look fit - in fact, he's been poor every game he's played since his excellent performance against Villa. It's almost as though that game took so much out of him that he's still recovering!

 

He actually didn't seem sure of his role today.

Miffed sums this up perfectly for me, as in I am left completely miffed by what you are on about. Did he ever get out of his own half?

 

It's pointless having Butterfield and Bannan as a midfield 2 as no one supports the attacks of threatens to get beyond the play, easy to sit in and defend against. Lee clearly hasn't been back to his best since his recent injury but at least gives the opposition something to think about by making forward runs and having an effect in the opponents half.

How can anyone seriously say he goes forward with the ball? He’s not the midfielder we need at the side of bannan

we either need a big physical type OR a general who can actually get forward and strike a ball and thread passes

Been the same since May 2016.

 

Unfortunately CC disagrees and brought in Jones, Abdi and Butterfield - basically a production line of the same clone.

Exactly , totally agree 

having that kind of midfield option and a direct wide player with place is a massive factor as to why we are where we are

In The Star last week in a profile he said he had been asked to hang back and let Bannan go forward! He is an attacking midfielder not being given his best role. And does Bannan get forward enough?

Send him back in January. Save on wages and help FFP

 

To be fair to him, in the programme yesterday he did state that he is now playing as the manager wants him to which again suggests CC is stifling any forward thinking and attacking play.
