Bannan


Recommended Posts

The problem I have with Bannan is when surrounded by better players he performs,  but when you need your captain to stand up and be counted he goes missing.

 

We should be getting at least 7 out of 10 every game. He is not a kid but a seasoned pro. 1 goal and 4 assists in 18 games is that good enough for our most expensive player.

 

Other in the league, 

 

Twine has 9 goals, 6 assists in 19 games.

Gregory has 4 assists and 7 goals in 18 games.

McGeady has 4 assists and 3 goals in 14 games.

Kieran Lee has 3 goals and 4 assists in 7 games.

Thats absolute trash to be fair

 

He never goes missing and always gives everything he’s got

 

The Problem is that when the best players are missing he tries to compensate by taking on more and more of the responsibility 

 

As for the stats - look at the chances we create and goals we score. Bannan is rarely more than 2 passes from the chance/goal

 

Plus, he’s been playing a lot deeper than some of those players you mention

I think Bannan and the whole team have benefited from him stopping thinking everything as to go through him of he as to be involved with every passage of play. we are a team and both parties have benefited over the last month or so.

Not into stats, but it does show another side to his play.

What ever your opinion is on Bannan, to say he goes missing is absolutely 100% unequivocally untrue.

 

He may try Hollywood balls, his dead ball delivery may be poor, but he never hides

Bannan never goes missing, that is nonsense. 

 

He always shows for the ball and tries to make things happen, but there is little denying the fact that he (like most players) produces his best when he is surrounded by better players. 

 

Having Luongo in midfield provides him with that insurance to go and do what he does best, which is create and get us ticking in the attacking third.

Well he hasn't played in the premier league for 7 years and 80% of his career has been spent playing outside of the premier league. 


I didn’t say he should be playing in the premier league. I was agreeing SOME of the things he does are premier league quality.

If bazza was on about 10k a week he would get a lot more love...he simply dosnt warrant his mammoth pay packet..it’s bonkers in the 3rd duvision

That is also true, but it is not his fault that the club agreed to sign him up on such terms when our future in the Championship was so tenuous.

For those slate him all the time though (I can be a critic, on occasions): 

 

Out of the current options, who would you replace him with? 

 

Think we all know the answer to that. 

 

Him, Luongo and one other is our best midfield combo. 

 

No chance you would replace him with Wing, Byers or Addenian.

Bannan is the best player in the League. Doesn’t matter what you think or what the stats say. He’s 10/10 every week. He’s our inspirational leader (which is overlooked by the haters) and a dead ball specialist. 
 

If you don’t agree you’re a hater and don’t know anything about football. Even though our performances have improved significantly since the emergence of Corbeneau and the return of Luongo and Windass, that’s a smokescreen. It’s all down to Bannan. He’s worth every penny we pay him. Without him we’d be in non-league

Wing needs to fly back to boro

He has been a real letdown so far. 

 

Seems to have a reasonable range of passing and that is about it. Scored no goals and I'm not sure he even has an assist yet? 

 

If people think Bannan can be a bit lightweight in central midfielder, then christ knows what they must think of Wing. Makes Bannan look like Kante in comparison. 

 

Oh, and he always looks like he's on the verge of bursting into tears.
