Delighted to see him back on the pitch tonight - thought he really added some composure on the ball and an extra dimension going forward. 
 

He could be the difference this season.

 

Question is where do you put him and who do you drop? Or do you leave him as a sub?

4 years and about 6 managers and we still don't know :)

Play him right of a 3 vs Leeds, Harris on other side. Reach will slot into Luongo role to give us more legs in MF.

I think Monk will keep him as a sub for now but start him if the performances are there.

 

Long way to go for the whole squad.

Thought he came on in the right position tonight - and showed a bit of what we’ve needed in a few games

 

Cant wait to see more of him...but more bench time first. 
 

Reach was better tonight*and his industry is important to the way we play

 

(*only saw second 45m)

I’m a big fan of Reach, and no fan of FF, but I’d actually swap them round on Saturday. Give FF a start and make him prove a point.  Thought Reach had a poor game tonight.

I feel like with FF the opponents know he’s a threat... even if we haven’t seen the best of him for a while. 

 

I think he’ll stay as sub, but he didn’t look too rusty, so that’s good... he did a couple of decent bits with Bannan like old times.

The thing is currently FF has fire in his belly, you want to make the most out of it whilst it's still positive.

 

Some of his touches today were sublime, and the run where he was hacked down was down right belligerent, and right at them - he was strong, direct and not stopping unless fouled.

He has to start for me. He looks fired up and he just offers so much that nobody else in the squad has. 

 

I've no idea who he replaces, and don't care, that's the managers job.

For me he’s got a lot to make up for and a point to prove. May sound harsh but the guy really needs to knuckle down and show a positive attitude for rest of his time here now. 
 

His cameo tonight was a good start and seemed to offer an instant threat but let’s see if this can now be built upon and get him back to the player we know he can be.

For me, and obviously i'm no manager - you drop Reach, move Harris to his natural side and put FF on the left.

 

Take no poo and tell him he plays there or doesn't play at all.

Class when he turned and took four of their players out!

I didnt rate him tonight apart from that run and win of a free kick.

 

He was trying to be too fancy Dan. 

 

Then again, that kind of play can sometimes create a chance but when it doesn't it's frustrating.

I wouldnt be dropping Harris, but i wouldn't mind Reach on the left. Seems far more natural on that side.

I wouldn't play him, I think his body language says he doesn't care tbh.  Time to go, had many chances and not done anything for ages.

Needs be in a free role behind Fletch. 

Did well tonite.

Can’t see Monk going with FF and Harris in this formation too often - if ever. He’s too pragmatic.

 

More likely we’ll see more of FF in a 4-4-1-1 or Harris and FF fighting it out for the left hand side role like Tonight

Interesting. I thought just the opposite and indeed initially that he was trying too hard. But then he settled. Thought it was promising.

Apart from his first few minutes when he did careless flicks I thought he was superb.

 

We were under the cosh and he got on the ball and kept it. Worked really well with Bannan and Fox.

 

Monk made the right call. Harris was out on his feet and Reach’s stamina and running ability proved essential in the last 20 minutes. 

 

Definitely wouldnt start FF v Leeds. But love to see him replace Reach or probably Harris after 60ish.

Personally I think you play two of Harris Reach and FF depending on fitness and opposition.
