This is the moment Bannan saw the pass to Reach, the ball hadn't reached Borner yet, but Bannan could see the big picture

 

He knew Leeds were stretched, he knew the run that Reach would make if he could get the ball quickly

 

Not all midfield players have this vision, to some like Bannan, it comes easy, John Sheridan had this talent in abundance, and Bannan has it too

 

It's like a second sight, knowing where colleagues are going to be at any given moment

 

There's still an awful lot of work to be done when Bannan gets the ball, fortunately Reach has the quality to be in the right place and deliver the right pass,  and Nuhiu has the quality to deliver the shot

 

But it all started here, in the mind of Barry Bannan

Just a bloke, who used up all his luck in one go when he met his wife.

He’s a special player. Deserves to be playing in the Premier League. 
 

In recent years smaller players have flourished on the biggest stages. Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Aguero etc. But I can’t help but think if Bannan was a bit stronger and a couple of inches taller, he’d be unbelievable.

 

Regardless he is still top class. And we are lucky to have him.

Bannan and Lee have such incredible vision. 
 

Bannan’s is more noticeable because it’s usually more offensive, but the way Lee can always seem to find a teammate without looking (usually in a congested midfield) is mighty impressive

would also help if he could take a corner , and improve on a pathetic average of 1 goal a season from attacking centre midfield ,those are the main reasons why he is in the championship and not premier league. if he was 3 inches taller ,scored 10-15 a season he would be playing for Liverpool or man city. at times he is part of the problem what makes us at times look a very poor team then on other days helps make us look a top 2 team.

Great vision, passes, runs and finish.

 

As someone said in another thread Reach makes that run cos he is on his natural side and foot, if hes playing I think hes best on the left hand side and would create more for us.

The Big man tho....that's how to close a game out.

Agreed his stats should be far better and some games just don't suit him. Playing Hutch next to him for so many years hasn't helped us or him either.

Bannan isn’t an attacking centre midfielder he is a deep lying playmaker have not seen a single wednesday match over the last 3 years.

 

bannan is the player you build a team around instead of having him fit in to the team

Don't be silly it was just a hopeful punt upfield that Casillas should have come out and cleared up.

 

I know thats true because i saw a Leeds Fan say it on YouTube lol

I heard he was trying to roll it in to the corner to waste time and see out the game and Reach had to go and spoil it...
