Lord Bannan of Hillsborough

Have to disagree. Especially today. Everytime he got the ball it was a long hopeful punt towards Win-fizz-all against 2 6'7" centre halves.  

 

And he did it again and again and again when it was obvious it wouldn't work. He's not an intelligent footballer. Not convinced he can change his game,  and frequently too slow to release the ball.

100% Agree

Out of that list, only two or three are better than Bannan and even that is debatable. 

 

John Swift? 

 

Come off it. 


Football about opinions. In my opinion all are better than Bannan. And again, I’m a fan of Bannan and all he has done for this club but I do believe we have our Owls goggles on because he is a club legend.  
 

Blades, Chelsea, Spurs are linked with Eze.  Villa, Man Utd, Spurs are linked with Philips.

West Ham, Watford with Allen. Swift linked with several Prem clubs and Leeds. 
 

Even if you don’t value my opinion the fact that several of the players I listed are valued by Prem League managers and scouts must say something. Bazza hasn’t exactly been in demand since he came here because he is a good Championship player, neat and tidy who always gives 100% but not much more.

We will never get promoted with players like bannan in this team 

 

His score record is abysmal 

His set peices  are 1 good un  then 10 bad ones 

 

For the best midfielder in the division  I've never heard a single bid come in for him

And there we have it. The reason why wealthy people shouldn’t put any money into football.

Top, top championship player. Often wonder if he could have made it in the prem given a proper chance. 

 

Of all our players he is the one I really wouldn't want to lose. At this level he's irreplaceable.

Ironically, he’d be better in the Premiership surrounded by better players.

Not sure I agree with this. Every other team singles him out as our most effective player, so he can't be as bad as you're making out. By the way, I'm not saying he's fantastic, but he's a very good player at this level and just needs to play 20 yards further up the field instead of trying to play in every position.

Bannan suffers from the issue of playing. FF gets better when he doesn’t play. If Bannan has a spell out injured there would be a petition on here to send him to Spain to get him fit, quicker.  

 

Although different players, Bannan reminds me of Tudgay. For 3 years he was our best attacker, and best defender. He got dogs abuse on here. 

 

Familarity breeds contempt.

Been saying this since he walked through the door 

The guys nearly 30 ain't gonna change now 

I'll give ya he is a good championship player but so overrated 

He is a premier league failure not once but twice 

Can't get in Scottish national team 

Scoring record abysmal for someone who demands the ball 

And like I said never heard a bid come in for him

If he's such a threat as you claim ,where's the bids?

You reckon in his time here there has been no enquires about him ?

 

Every pundit recognises him as our best player and most teams know if you stop Bannan you usually stop Wednesday

Gone on about it before. If you've played footy then you have played with or against Barry. Has to have the ball all the time, never makes a mistake, yet quick to blame others. All about him, big fish in a small pool. The reason he is with us and not in the PL is that he does what he wants, doesn't follow instruction and sorry folk's is not quite good enough. 

 

Barry concentrate on being an attacking midfielder and not Beckenbauer and you and us might make a fist of it.

I think this is the crux of it. When he drops deep, the whole team drops deep and the ball just keeps being played back in our box - time after time.

Come on then what enquiry ?

 

And every pundit knows he is a failed premier league reject ,can't score ,average at set pieces and part of the 5 years of failure 

 

Bannan like the rest of this squads career highlight will be playoff bottling

You don't see it do you. 

No, I see it. Bannan tries to be all things to all men. He’s our best player and is carrying a few, and has been for a while. Bannan isn’t our problem.

I fully agree that Bannan isn't our problem.....but the role he plays in the team and our one dimensional play via him can't be ignored either
