What has happened to Penney?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I've missed it somewhere, is he injured? He was looking great at Lwb until Jos moved him to midfield.

On the bench Saturday, Fox playing well, be daft to drop him

A good prospect but way too many weaknesses to his game currently that a mazy run against Stoke or a dragback against Villa won’t mask

He only made the squad because DC thought if he gets picked then all day long we'd have good luck.

Not injured then, which is good. I'm keen for him to get game time, here or on loan.

Hopefully gets a loan if Bruce gets another left back in.

 

He may even get a move to another championship club on loan

Do  not get me wrong I think Penny is a really good player for the future at the moment I think he could do with a loan spell somewhere in league 1 to get regular football he’s just not there yet I think Jos was manager he was trying to do that

putting too much pressure on the lad too soon

Serious question for those who regularly watch us - did he look far more comfortable at left back than left midfield?

 

I played both positions in amateur football and have to say I found left back a lot easier than left midfield.  I would imagine as a young inexperienced pro he would feel far more comfortable at left back. Additionally from what I have seen of Penney he’s obviously got attacking instincts and the ability to beat a player, which I think are qualities we are crying out for in our full backs.    I reckon he’ll feel far more vulnerable in left midfield and as we all know if things start to go wrong it’s difficult for young players to stay composed. 

 

Bruce worked wonders with young Robertson at Hull; hopefully he’ll see similar potential in Penney.

Exactly 

 

He never actually had a good 90 mins, just those 2 good moments of play and everyone went mad 

 

Got a LOT of development to do, to even be close to the first team. In the same boat as Baker IMO

For me he looked better at full back. Play infront of him. Able to get forward and support.

But also, IMO, has been the best stopper of crosses on that flank this season at full back.

 

Still. Fox is in, done well and is now in on merit.

Just as it should be. Hopefully an end to the chopping and changing and the lads know if they do well they'll retain the shirt.

Penney will get another chance.
