Liam Palmer was magnificent today

How do you know that Palmer thinks he doesn’t need to learn? Have you spent time with him or has he told you that? 

People need to be careful about what they state. 

 

‘People’ need to read more carefully.

 

The Poster quite clearly says it’s his opinion...which he’s entitled to

I think I must have watched a different game today. Wasn’t impressed with Palmer, again. 

Crossing, bar one on 75mins, was woeful, in general he’s weak in a challenge and doesn’t score, but gets into some great positions. I seem to notice that, again for their goal, he’s slow at tracking back and gives up too easily. Might be me being over critical, but he’s been at the club a long time and never grabbed that left back position for himself whether due to lack of competition, long term injury (can’t think of any off top of my head) or just managers 2nd choice.

I think your first line says you must have,palmer wasn't at fault for the equaliser.

The worst crosser of a ball i have ever seen. Modern full backs play like wingers now and Palmer cant cross. 100% needs replacing for a new RB. His all round play has improved but his crossing is still garbage.

Fair enough, just watched it back but my other points are valid

Darren potter was the worst crosser of a ball,palmers may not go to his intended target,but crikey potter always hit the first man,proper sh-t he was.

Magnificent is a bit strong, goal came down that side. Playing better him and Fox but full backs are still top priority 

 

Goal came down the middle and was all down to shabby defending by Lees and Hector failing to clear on two occasions. Palmer never involved. Guess people already replied to this too.

I'd agree with these comments. Surprisingly Birmingham failed to exploit our two weakest players in Fox and Palmer. 

 

IMHO Palmer has had many an opportunity to make the RB position his own and he simply hasnt taken it. For a converted midfielder his passing and crossing is poor, usually over hit or too high. I know he wasn't but had Hunt been in similar positions we would have created more chances.

If he could cross consistently he’d be a good player

his crosses in the first half were way overhit.

Had a great game but like many have said already he needs to find better choices and execution of his final ball to get that bit better that really matters.

He never will though - we've been saying this about him for years and years now. We need better.

That’s not technically true and to prove it ,in my opinion I thought Jos was doing a sterling job and I think he would have got us out of this division with his free flowing foosball:luhukay: and with that the prosecution rests his case:Pelupessy:

Maybe the old Hunt would, but he’s shot now, and can’t hold down a regular place in the Bristol City side

Would that be the Jack Hunt who’s made 20 Championship starts this season (and got 4 assists)?

 

Palmer has zero assists from 16 games.
