    It's about time this Murray experiment was bought to an end.

    The team is clearly a counterattacking side in all but one position.

      The same Murray who had seven goals in the last eight home games?

      Murray is excellent at fouling and getting offside and just about one of the best in the business.
      It frustrates me to see him doing this, he clearly struggles so needs to foul.

      Hughton doesn't appear to notice how often he is giving possession back, that's okay in the Championship but we really don't want to be giving unnecessary possession to anyone in the Premier, let alone the big boys.

      Time for a change.

      A bit harsh, but you have a point in that the way we play suits a pacey no.9, which hasn't been the case up until now. Infact it's been the case that the way we have played has suited big strong hold up target man like GM.

      I would hardly say get rid you can always do with having different options, and GM has shown that he still has goals in him, but our default should probably be the pace and stamina of Andone now since our midfield have improved a lot. Before we seemed to need GM's help getting up the pitch, I would say now we have much less of a problem getting up the pitch and now we need an outlet and someone to stretch defenses and run in behind.

      I said on the match thread I think Murray has a different role to play now , he is fine against the lower 10 teams and defenders lacking confidence as he can bully them but he does not have the engine or 4th gear for teams away from home or the top 6 when we are sitting very deep. He thrives on crosses into the box , against top6 and away from home those wingers are more defenders than attackers so although still a great box man & hold up player he just is not going to get the ammunition in the box and will lack the support trying to hold it up.

      Good plan and when Andone gets Injured or suspended I have every faith that Locadia can fire in the goals to keep us in the PL!!

      Murray is the best finisher bar none at the club

      Do not underestimate that Andone is facing tired, often battered defenders, Murray softens them up!

      That's not actually true.

      I do agree Murray hinders our overall team performance.

      He's obviously very slow, this gives us so much less presence up forward, as he can't chase things down and everything slows down around him as a result - but on the other side, if you get him a decent ball in the box he will probably score.

      In the Premier League, the winning formula is three quick attackers. When Murray plays we're down to 2. I think he still has a major place to play in our season, but we need to move forward to a modern style of football.

      Been saying it for weeks, I think ever since the Newcastle game.

      Murray still has a lot to offer, but I would start Andone in most games, with Murray used of the bench. No doubt there's no one better in the air than Murray at this club, and he's one of the best in the league, but we put enough chances his way to warrant him starting.

      After what Andone done against Palace, I thought he was a definite starter today.
