    Duffy our Best Player

    ....according to the Guardian. Not any of the more likely suspects like Gross, Propper, Stephens, Dunk, Murray or Ryan.
    He may be good, but is he that good? Maybe Katie Price knows the answer to that question....

      He isnt even the best centre back but I am glad our players are flying under the radar.

      No. Just no. Statistically maybe, but at actual football, not a chance.

      I'm not sure at all, I almost think Goldson could be better. Duffy will throw himself at everything but his distribution is suspect at best and his attacking headers are just hopeless. If Goldson isn't going to challenge him then I hope the Uwe replacement does

      Does that mean Shane wins the Leon award?
      Dwell on your strengths not your weaknesses.

      Maty Ryan: ‘The height factor is something I copped as a kid and into my career,’ he said, ‘but I can tell you, if I have played some bad games over the years, none has ever been because I was too small.’

      Seem to recall the Guardian did also predict we'd finish bottom

      Not our best, but he is so far away from being dropped I'm amazed it's even mentioned.

      CH has the centre backs set up as beauty and the beast.
      Shane is the blunt instrument used to bludgeon away the opposition, and statistically he is the very best at that.

      This new found desire to replace him with a little more finesse just won't work all the time CH has the team set up to defend for 89 minutes.

      Finesse (I prefer skill) and the ability to block/tackle are not mutually exclusive. Dunk for example?

      Great player. A classic 7/10 most weeks, a real destroyer, but, troubles me when he has to think rather than react.

      IMO, I think we have quite a number who are performing better.

      You mean “ good player” for a 7/10. Great is so overused.
