Before the lockdown I would have said the same but he played much better after the restart when we used three at the back.

Not defensively he didn’t All his good work, the things we remember, was done further forward

Can't really include Bates played one game which we won. The real question has to be why did we even bring him here?.

Was a Bruce choice I honestly think he would have played a big part last season if Bruce was still here

Still think Murphy will come back to us, it took him time to settle then was very good the second half of the season. He seems to get on well with Monk which is a big plus. Cannot see the -12  points to be a problem, If he is only here for a year

 

I think he'd get on well with most managers, he works hard doesn't complain and seems like a good lad off the field as well. I expect him to move to a club where he will be utilised as a winger rather than a wing-back. I am not sure we will continue with the wing-back approach anyway but I still expect Murphy to get offers from clubs with better prospects next season.

Murphy wants to stay here. 

And ultimately that’s what it boils down to hopefully. Will be the players decision. Fingers crossed we get him.

Strongly linked with a return to Norwich, Colin at Boro keen, plus a host of other clubs apparently.

Norwich is the worrying one, being closer to his family

He’s training in Sheffield at the minute. It will boil down to money and who pays Newcastle the most. I think we got him last year as a ‘sweetener’ following the Bruce debacle.

Isn’t Norwich renowned for families being “very close”? :ph34r:

 

And I say that as someone from NI...

His parents run a large bar near Kings Lynn, and I recall reading an article saying, both Jacob and Josh struggle to get back there. Guess it’s not that far from Sheffield

He wasn’t a Bruce signing he was brought in at the last minute because our deal for hector broke down at the last min when Chelsea decided they wanted more from us? He was a chicken stuffing signing from his contacts in Germany

I don’t recall seeing him have a good game in that role. His positioning is terrible defensively, although to be fair to him, he does track back. Most of his good work was done further forward, or when he was introduced from the bench  He is excellent when at one on one, so play to his strengths, use him as a winger who can track back

Totally disagree. I thought he was excellent in the wing back role. Don’t remember him getting rinsed by a winger and it actually seemed to give him more space. As an attacking wing back, I think he’s perfect.

I know his family have a restaurant in Downham Market, but reading posts from Norwich fans the majority are saying he's not the type of lightweight player they need right now, they've got enough, main requirement is for defenders and strong midfield players.
