      I think the key thing is when Duffy's playing we don't look like we are going to concede from every bloody cross in the box. Desperately need to get back to basics.

      Out of interest, how many goals have we conceded from crosses into the box without Duffy in the team?

      B’Muff corner is one instant. I can’t think of many more.

      As it stands right now, we need a solid defensive base on which to build and some fight and character in the team. I am a lot less worried about my defenders being comfortable with receiving a 5 yard pass in their own box and more about getting clean sheets on which to build. Frankly Duffy is, in my opinion, a long way ahead of Webster in both character and the art of actual defending which is the primary role and i would be unhappy of this is true.

      Has anyone got the clip of Duffy in the home game against Bournemouth where he gets done by Solanke?

      I’m not saying he’s not good enough but this belief he is going to sort out all our defensive problems are baffling

      That’s not what I’m saying and have never said. You may be mistaking me for someone.

      I bolded out a sentence which said he was one of the best in the world, that is simply not true. He’s a great defender and someone who I rate quite highly. But you need to come off the meds if you thjnk he’s one of the worlds best centre-backs
      One last run at this before I assume you are just trolling me.

      I'm not saying he's one of the worlds best centre backs.

      I'm saying for all his short comings, as a footballer, in his position at centre back, he is still one of the worlds best players at stopping the ball from going into the goal.

      I don’t have the intelligence or patience to troll anyone, but I’m not going to agree that you didn’t say he’s a world class centre back, recheck your own post!

      Yes that's correct.

      Not rated as a footballer.

      But still one of the world's best defenders.


      As I keep pointing out, and you keep missing, there is a huge difference between being a 'footballer' and a 'defender'.

      Shane can, will, and does, DEFEND his goal as one of the worlds best.

      But Shane can't do what the other lesser defenders, but better footballers, can:-

      Pace
      Guille
      Control
      Technique
      etc

      Mr Potter wants all of that from all his defenders as well as defending.
      He's seems prepared to accept defensive shortcomings in favour of overall play.

      Mr Hughton wanted the blunt instrument that was Duffy, using Dunk for the finesse.


      Shane is a throwback centre back, a huge Irish wall, hard as nails, blunt enough to ride bare arsed to Canterbury on and rather at odds with top flight 21st century football.

      What he can do, DEFEND, puts him above most of his contemporaries.
      What he can't do, FOOTBALL, stops him from being even an addendum to that conversation.

      Horses for courses and we're on a different course now.

      Shane is great defending deep with team mates close by. Last ditch tackles, heading balls away. He has always looked nervous with the ball at his feet and having to chose a pass.

      It seems that recently, goals against have been breakaway goals from balls slid through. Don't think Shane has the speed to chase back, or to cut out the pass. I think Webster has the potential but is suffering a crisis of confidence (not surprising with everyone on his back). If/when he gets his mojo back, he is better at bringing the ball out than anyone we've got. Remember those surging runs early on. Not seen that for the last few months. It's a shame the BDB is injured as I think Webster could do with a break. Maybe this time away will serve him well
