Bannan apologises.


Recommended Posts

Bannan would get a rollicking from me today if I was the manager. As captain, his reaction to a slightly over hit pass from Palmer was poor, as was his sulky walk back. 
He’s constantly berating referees doesn’t help our cause either. 
He’s clearly a very good player but the midfield isn’t right, and hasn’t been for years.

He’s a bit of a weird one Bannan, very talented footballer but I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone as good as him as bad at shooting in my 30 years watching Wednesday. The law of averages means he scores a couple of screamers a year but on the whole it’s not a good return from him

Everyone knows what was said before though, it was criminal in nature and rightly reported to the police. I'm sure Barnsley youth was just talking football and not saying anything untoward... It's Bannan's responsibility really, he shouldn't be posting pictures of his kids on social media on accounts where he's followed by and interacts with thousands of fans.

 

If I was him I'd keep my kids separate or if I felt the need to upload photos of them I'd do it on a private account where only close friends and family can see. 

 

He can't upload all sorts of personal stuff on to an account followed by thousands and then complain that someone commented about football in the wrong place.

Exactly!!I didn’t even mention his family or anything personal all I said to him was maybe stop bollocking the other players for your own mistakes and give the other lads a chance at free kicks etc..🤦‍♂️ I think I’m allowed to say that ..or is it hurtful to all those on the bannan bus?

I’ve not really seen many people say Bannan is rubbish. Everyone knows that isn’t true.

 

Those (including myself) who think he is PART of the problem have probably played in teams where there is one stand out player. If the opposition can work out how to nullify him, then it means that source has gone and equally it has a knock on effect to the other players in terms of their performance levels.

 

Surely many of you will have played in a team where the ‘star player’ is missing one week for some reason and all of a sudden the other 10 players naturally raise their game? It can happen even in the professional game!!

Actually I can't remember Bannan scoring two screamers in a year. Maybe three or four in the time he's been with us. He's had plenty of free kicks in dangerous situations too but you know it'll sale over the bar when he goes for goal. Terrible set piece taker IMO.

Not really Bannans fault,  well it is but the main responsibility is the managers.

 

Bannan isn't great at penalties so the manager should find out who is best, second best etc. and draw up a list, nominate the taker before the game. Have a competition or sumat to round off training for a few days with those who want to put their names down. 

 

I know it's not the same as under pressure in a game but you would think the strikers might be up for it and a few others like Wing, Byers. No press gang just those that want the job.If it turns out the best taker is Bannan then fair enough.

 

The coaches should also get an analysis of each keeper we face, which side he goes, does he have a sequence he uses. Our keepers should have stats on the potential takers they face, do they go left right or down the middle.

 

It's quite possible they already do all this but if they don't, they should. Amateur hour if not.

Penalty taking success yet another aspect of our game to collapse since we released the legend big Atdhe.

 

3 goals in top flight football this season - more than any of our players in 3rd tier football.
