      Wants to prove fellow Albion fans wrong, when it’s confirmed one day by whoever decides these things, that:

      a) Duffy was an awful footballer and defender; and that

      b) Webster ended up being a footballing God.

      No. I just think it might help you to learn to stop the scapegoating you all seem to be uniting in right now. How else are you lot going to learn? Barnes clearly hasn't taught you much has he?

      Didn't Webster receive constant criticism from some of our fans last night? Coincidence that it's now going on NSC with you all thumbing up each others criticism of him even when it's bullshit like "Barnes and wood were never criticised by our fans how is that related to Webster?" ?

      I think you'll find its more than just last night he was criticised. But clearly we dont know what we see or know anything about football, defending, passing to our own player, stopping oppsition scoring at corners and all ther other ways Webster is less effective as a defender than Duffy because we only have half a brain.

      I love how since Webster has cemented his place in the back line Duffy has suddenly become world class whilst sitting on the bench not playing.
      Let's forget that last 2 seasons when we were playing Duffy at the back we lost 4-0 and 5-1 to liverpool, 4-0 to chelsea, conceded 3 against Palace (we lost 3-2) lost 5-0 against Bournemouth and lost 4-1 to Man City. Can you imagine the reaction had Webster been playing with that amount goals being conceded?

      It couldn't be more obvious that you've all found your new scapegoat in Webster by pretending we were so much better when we had Duffy defending instead of Webster. WTF is the matter with you lot? I hope you're not now going to be in hope he plays badly so you can continue this deluded bullshit that Webster's a completely useless defender when he clearly isn't.

      What's gong on is he makes one mistake and then that's it, everything else he does then goes completely unnoticed. He simply can't win now can he? Just like Barnes. Someone even compared him to Colin bloody Hawkins. I don't give a toss how many of you want to carry on this constant bullshit criticism/scapegoating of Webster by pretending Duffy is miles better than him. The stats don't lie, we got smashed a fair few times by teams including Bournemouth when Duffy was defending, Webster has been far far better.

      I wouldn’t want to let the truth get in the way of a good story, but last season we lost 1-0 to Liverpool in both games and beat Palace home and away. You’re thinking of the season before last. Doesn’t time fly?
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      It's been corrected. But you carry on and ignore the facts. We don't want to start seeing the positives in Webster do we?

      Duffy is an excellent defender but very limited overall. Are people forgetting his mistakes last season (when he was magnificent too)? Webster is a similarly 'good' player overall but with a lot more potential I think. Totally get why people are focused on the now not the future and on pure defending instead of overall play. Webster has also done what Duffy was meant to and scored some goals.

      I expect White will come back and completely change this anyway as in August it will be him and Dunk, with Webster on the bench I expect. Duffy probably not the type to be back up for more than a season. Imagine he'll move on in the summer but we do need him NOW and do need to cash in on him while people remember how good he is. Perhaps that's the problem. We're getting offers but nowhere near what he should be worth as everyone know's we're open to moving him on for style reasons.

      I would keep him to the summer due to lack of defenders here now, but would certainly consider moving him on in the summer, however good he is as others behind him look like they will be better with game time.

      Yep GPott clearly doesn't rate Duffy as a footballer.

      It's just a shame he also happens to be one of the worlds best defenders.
      Give it a rest. If that were true he’d have been taken 2 seasons ago.

      Good defender? Yes
      One of the best in the world in that position? No
      I want to know why an Orange is an Orange, but a Lime’s not a “Green”
      I want to know how a blind man knows if his arse is clean
      Do I really want to know where all my money’s been?
