I've never understood the s**t that gets thrown at him by some of our fans. Yes, he sometimes has a below par game, and sometimes it's difficult for a decent player to perform to their potential in a squad of limited quality.

 

But he's one of the best, if not the best player we've got, and if he moves on he'll leave a huge pair of boots to fill.

He's only a size 6 I think.

If you're Bannan at 31, I imagine the reassurances you'd want are that there's going to be enough investment in the next 2 years to challenge at the top end for promotion, not just money. 

 

If he leaves, for me, that probably reinforces that were not likely to be doing so.

Great try by our fella, bazza making great ground to be there for the pop pass at the corner flag if neccesary.

If he signs a new deal there will be a statue of Bannan at Hillsborough. 
 

It won’t cost much to make based on his height. 
 

Pelupessy can stand next to it too. It’ll be great. 

A bit of handiwork on one of those elephants and we can have a bit of money for the transfer kitty.

Let me first state - I hope bannan signs a new contract with us, but -

Bannan is not the be all and end all that is made on here. He has, IMO, thee major faults , which I'm sure a good coach could correct. The first is his passing. At times he puts in some superb crosses, but to counteract this, he also puts in some atrocious passes. On Friday night I counted at least 5 that went directly County players, with not a Wednesday player nearby, one of which should have lead to a goal. His shooting , even in warm up, is atrocious. He can sky more balls than our former winger used to.. And he seems to want to be involved in absolutely everything, no matter where it should happen. Other players have to take responsibility themselves.

And his yellow card count is becoming an embarrasment.

I would keep Bannon, he has the does have some bad games or bad spells in a game, we notice this because he doesn't hide, he is always there wanting the ball.

BB is a well paid footballer...the heroics are being done by our medics in intensive care pulling long shifts in PPE.....He isnt a hero,nor is any other Football Player,in my view... Personally unless he enjoys being Captain,I dont expect him to be here at close of the season,but i wish him well.

I don't really get it.


"The trouble with "lessons from history" is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins."   

 

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

He’s is a good player and has been for a long time. I think because he is one of the only players here who is genuinely comfortable on the ball and everything goes through him he is both easy to see as the bees knees and simultaneously easy to criticise.

 

I do expect him to move at the end of the season because most players do seek one more decent pay day before the end of their career, and who can blame them?

 

Hope he stays and gets better players to play along side though. Probably won’t happen but my finger are and will remain crossed!

Those five passes which went astray is because the receiving player/s didn't read the situation.  Wish we had a few more players with his ability and passion.
