I’d prefer us to give Fraser Preston a chance on the Bench. Murphy being in the squad is amongst other things stopping one of our young lads being in the first team squad 


Not a bad shout, apart from the Barnsley game I haven’t seen Murphy contribute much more than I would expect a youngster like Preston to do. Maybe the Hidalgo kid will be a gem we can use in January

I suppose we aren’t the finished article, so we still have players who we can upgrade upon, but that’s the same with any club Hopefully he can add something to our campaign as the season unfolds.

Murphy's lack of interest is worrying. If he doesn't improve then he should go back to Newcastle. We cant carry none triers in our squad.

West Brom fans said he was awful when they had him. In fact one of the baggies came on here and warned us.

Forestieri gets the nod over Murphy and Reach going forward, both lightweight and ineffectual 

 

Reach is a totally different type of player to the other 2.

 Really wonder where this attitude towards Reach comes from. Bet he is in the top ten hardest working players in the Championship. 

 

Must be the messed up element among the fans. 

 

I'd rather have a player who puts in 50% effort every game but produces something effective during that 50% than a player who puts in 100% and produces nothing.

He's rubbish. 

 

What is he meant to offer? 

 

Is he even that quick? 

 

I'd rather have Jeremy Helan marauding around the place like a headless chicken than that bloke.

I thought he looked decent to start with but it's impossible to defend him on his recent form.

 

The only saving grace is that a bloke a few rows behind me has a irrational hatred of him that he can't help vocalising, every time Murphy is in play, even if he doesn't do anything wrong. It's hilarious. I feel myself willing the ball to go near Murphy just to hear this guy pipe up.

Thought Josh Murphy was their most dangerous player so can't understand some nonsense on here about them both being crap and the same.

 

Josh produces an end product and takes men on whereas Jacob just strolls around looking not bothered. Like others it's baffling how Aarons is playing in league one in comparison, terrible decision by Bruce there not to bring him back.

 

Guess we have to wait until January, certainly to bring someone else in. Monk is giving him a chance which is fair enough but it has to stop now, either give FF a chance there or a youngster.

Murphy clearly has the ability, he has shown it for us already.

We do however know that players sometimes have the ability, but not the application.   

As fans we want every player to play their guts out, every game - some do, no matter what.   Others need more motivation, i'm not sure what motivation Murphy needs but I fear we have yet to find and offer that motivation to him.

I’m not particularly impressed with Jacob Murphy so far. Seems to lack that pre-requisite for a footballer which is some willingness and fight. Seems to be on the periphery of the game on the whole. 
 

I did prefer Rolando Aarons although I understand who we didn’t go back in for him given his injury record.

Something isnt right with Murphy and it isnt his ability. I think we need to be careful how we judge the lad. He is obviously a confidence player.

I’m not sure. For me, a confidence player would still get the basics right and put a shift in until they got abit of luck.

 

He stinks of a player that thinks he’s made it and now he’s playing below himself. The similarities between him and Bothroyd are staggering.

I dont think murphy is a bad player tbh, just dont think he'll ever be a 'backs to the wall, dig in and keep a result' kinda player. He shouldnt be trusted to track a man back and should come on when we need a goal and he doesnt have to track back. I know the ref was dog turd but I would like to think ff would have won us cheap free kicks up the field. As it was we just seemed to lump every goal kick to reach of all people and invite pressure for half an hour.

I used to think he was an arrogant player but I genuinely believe it is confidence that's causing issues. 

 

He was reading a confidence book the other day on his instagram story I think.

 

I think a spell out of the firing line will do him good and he'll come back as a credible option.
