Thorniley is gonna threaten Lees place in the side next season if not this imo.

Could well do as Lees has gone from the 10million man to struggling to get a place in the side. Has looked panic stricken at times and ill at ease when in possession.

I think that it’s too early for Thorniley to be challenging Lees for his place just yet. I also think it depends if we sign Hector or another centre-half.

Having a former CB like Bruce push Thorniley through the early years of his professional career is the best thing that could have happened to him. If we somehow manage to bring Hector in permanently, we could have a stellar pair in our defence for years to come. That's the foundation of a successful team anywhere in the world.

Lees being out yesterday had given Bruce the perfect opportunity to put Iorfa in so he must Rate Thorniley , I said previously he was unlucky to lose his place after the game at Luton .

Pretty sure Hector has got some horse shoes in his boots too, he seems to create so much more power when pinging the ball about.

I like Tom Lees, he's a bloody good defender, but he never looks comfortable on the ball, and his distribution isn't great

 

I've noticed a few teams have come to Hillsborough, and they've not closed Lees down when he has the ball, it's as though the opposition are saying, we don't mind you having the ball because we know you're not going to hurt us, and there's a high possibility that you will just give us the ball back

 

Hector on the other hand, he's the full package, he can defend like a proper defender, and he can distribute the ball like a midfield player

 

I like Thorniley too, he's a bloody good defender and with the bonus of being very young

 

I've not seen Iorfa, but at the moment I'd go with Hector and Thorniley

Didn’t see the game yesterday but Been impressed with Hector all season. Really hope we can sign him permanently, with him, Lees, Thorniley and Iorfa we’ve got a good foundation of four centre halves all of a decent age for the future. 

 

Obviously Lees was unavailable yesterday but looking at our clean sheet record lately isn’t it amaZing what a settled back four can achieve.

I think the fact he went with Thorniley is bloody good management

 

He keeps stating in the media that everyone will get a chance

 

By putting Thorniley in before Iorfa, he's showing everyone that he means what he says

 

It's the same with Boyd and Aarons, and Fox and Lazaar

 

We all expect Aarons and Lazaar to eventually replace Boyd and Fox

 

But he's giving the players already here a chance first

 

Good man management

Michael Hector has obviously inherited Glenn Loovens carpet slippers. Everything is relaxed and well thought out. He barely sprints and always looks to be positioned well just like Loovens at his best. 

 

Jordan Thornily has has obviously been passed Anthony Gardner’s carpet slippers because he’s as cool as a cucumber also. 

 

Yesterday's centre-half pairing is the most chilled out partnership I’ve seen for a while. 

You have to take into account the opposition; I could have played in that defence yesterday and been chilled out

I’ve noticed that myself and been pointing it out to my mates for months. 

 

I wouldnt drop Lees though. He’s too valuable to the side.

I think people on here are terrifically critical of Lee's. He's generally still a steady eddy. He hasn't made any howlers of late and has been very much integral to our recent purple defending patch.

Héctor is far from the full package.....his concentration is shocking and he’s got a mistake a game in him that leads to a very good chance for the opposition......it’s not been too apparent for the last 2 games due to the woeful opposition we’ve played

Hector is solid and very calm in possession, his only fault is his passing/distribution at times, I hope we do everything we can to sign the lad!

He already is. I would pick him over Lees.

I agree he has, and still think he has a major part to play, however, we have for too long been rubbish at bringing through young players either throwing them in too young and hanging them out to dry or not giving them a chance.

 

Thorniley is one of the few that's come through in the last 20 years who looks ready both ability wise and physically, will improve us and with him being left footed adds balance. This is a prime time to get him in and established.

 

Is this the end of Lees, no. But will he be guaranteed a shirt as he has been in the past, also no. If we can sign Hector it would be brilliant but as for the rest of this season I would be looking at having Hector and Thorniley as my CB pairing unless one loses form.

That ball he played to Liam Palmer just before Reach missed that sitter was inch perfect it was good play by Palmer but the ball from Hector totally sold the defender.

Thought Thorniley struggled on Saturday. 

 

Still a solid prospect once he has some more experience however Lees and Hector are well in front of him atm.
