    Was that not Sidwell's fault then? All norwood's fault?
    Sidwell can't do it all on his own. Whenever Norwood is in the side the other midfielder has to do the donkey work. When either Kayal, Stephens or Sidwell play together it is shared.

      I thought the exact opposite his passing was very wayward but then I am biased because I think that Stephens is by far the best midfielder in the Championship even including Shelvey and that Norwood is a very poor alternative. I have said many times Stephens opens the game and makes space for everybody with 1 turn. Norwood is very predictable in what he is going to do. or attempt to do. and last night was no different. Without a doubt our best 2 midfielders together are Kayal and Stephens and I wonder whether we will need to bring in another even if Stephens stays because I do not think that our options are good enough.

      I am sure that Norwood and Sidwell could both join a championship club next season and do very well but not in the Premier where they will be generally out thought and outplayed. unless brought on in an emergency as a sub.
      I agree about Stephens being the best in the league, and im sure he will join a decent prem team. Norwood is a very different type of CM tho.

      Dont agree with that, how can you blame Norwood for not picking up Pritchard is harsh. Just as much the others players fault as well. I dont think Norwood is great at the "Donkey work" but feel you are being harsh on him. He would play much better in a 3 man midfield giving his passing ability.

      And that's what I'm alluding to, he can't play in a two man midfield.

      I think without Stephens not many can. By far our best midfielder

      So perhaps CH knows more than us that are hoping that he will sign another contract so needs to look at alternatives. Last night would have shoiwed that we do not have any.

      Will cost a lot of money to replace him. But we really need to.

      ..I don't think Bristol City will be a pushover draw maybe and it resting on the last game ..Newcastle at 8/1 for the championship looks a nice hedge

      Blasphemy

      Really isn't rocket science that
      If the whole squad was out on the piss it still makes no sense.

      Don't have to be a rocket scientist to work that out?
