Carlton Palmer vs Barry Bannan

Is there any context to these comments?

 

I assume Palmer hasn't just woken up and decided to lay into Bannan?

 

:duntmatter:

To be fair, Carlton’s reaction does seem a bit OTT. The tweet that started it only seemed to be saying Sheridan and Bannan were the same type of player… then someone tags Carlton in to say he was the perfect partner and in he wades!

 

Love them both but a whole career at the top level, 18 England caps, cup finals, and transfer fees that in todays money would equate to about £30-40m and there’s no question who the better player was. 
 

Carlton’s not the most humble charming guy is he lol.

 

Btw I was on the next treadmill to him at the gym the other week… still in fantastic shape for a guy in his mid-50s - Carlton’s not bad either 🙂

Think Palmer trolling a bit.

Games has changed a lot over last 30 years and Bannan and Palmer are two different midfield players.

Like someone else has said a fairer comparison would be Bannan and Sheridan.

But Palmer, Sheridan and any other regular player from early 90s its aa level above anything we have in days team but that is hardly earth shattering when we are in Division 3.

Carlton was a very good, if not great player for us, but now I really wish he'd just shut the F up.

His comments frequently come across as divisive, antagonistic and attention seeking. It's really not needed.

Bannan never struggled in the Championship either. Just couldn't drag forward the mess that was around him, as his stats clearly showed. His only flaw is his loyalty, which of course I am not complaining about.

He's probably responding to a question or statement put to him.
