Murphys performance

I reckon he was on the thunderbox when Sir Garry was giving his tactical masterclass. Then once he had wiped and flushed it was too late . He had a chat with Bully instead  who, with a breath stale and acidic from a breakfast of buckfast and haggis, muttered ‘yoos get the ball wee laddie and yoos run and boot it oor iyes will see you ootside yer rum old tosspile. Garry flipping monk ‘

Even by your standards, this is absolutely terrible.

Murphy is still a good player.

 

Some of the runs he made in our early games were brilliant. And he scored.

 

Its just it doesn't work with two wingers. We concede too much possession.  

 

Let's not turn him into the new whipping boy.

Not impressed from what I've seen so far, crossing not great and tends to try and run through players instead of around em.

 

Saying that it looked a nailed on penalty when he got brought down in box just after half time.

From his first game he's played by and for himself, and it's increasingly clear he's not good enough to do so.

Looked like he was running through the motions, not actually trying to affect the game but make it look like he was trying, awful. 

 

And that cross....:duntmatter:

Just got home and someones beat me to it.

Totally agree, looked absolutely uninterested.

Need another Harris for the right wing.

He was poor.

 

Odubajo was garbage again also.

 

rest very good.

 

 

 

Odubajo needs alot of support. Despite not being the strongest in the tackle (!) Reach works very hard and will always get back to cover, (as he did today when brought back into midfield.) Harris nowhere nearly as industrious. If Odubajo plays, Reach plays in front of him imo.

It's too early to write him off but Harris seems the better player.

Reach can be poor at times so Murphy will get more chances to prove himself.

He looked especially bad today but I think he's better than that.

 

My Grans better than that, and she had a lisp.

He looked brilliant vs Barnsley and since that doesn't seem to have the same hunger

Agree with others. Murphy hasn't shown enough to justify a place in the starting 11. Reach and Harris out wide - with either Kieran Lee or Luongo playing box to box. If persisting with both Bannan and Hutch in CM - Hutch is the defensive CM with the ability to play long raking passes, BB's creativity impacts more on games from further forwards. Good to see Sam Winnall enjoying himself and providing a decent 2nd central forward option. I have Lee, Luongo and Winnall ahead of Murphy for a starting 11 place with Reach to the wing being part of the picture. Bates for Iorfa might also be worth considering if Lees not available for selection against Fulham and beyond.

Harris is the obvious stand out player.... my brother is a Norwich fan and he always raved about Murphy. Think he has lost his way a bit. A good manager will get the best out of his players so hopefully Murphy can regain some form under Monk.

 

not writing him off yet... but I don’t think he should be in the starting XI when everyone is fit

In my opinion does not deserve a start in the next game or even on the bench absolutely dreadful and 30 million Transfer fee paid for him I wouldn’t give him 30p:duntmatter:

When do we start giving him dogs abuse and use him as the scapegoat?

Not the best recently but I still think he will prove to be a valuable player throughout a long season. Let’s not all get on his back just yet.

Another poor performance from a so called good player.

 

Think there is potentially a good player in there somewhere, maybe he just needs a run of games on the bench to kick his arse into gear. Right now it just looks like he's an automatic first choice, that's not good.

Needs dropping.  Murphy saunters around like he think he’s better than the Championship.

 

Put Reach on the wing instead; play AR in his natural position and get the best out of him.  Not exactly rocket science.
