      Makes an interesting read this thread after we all got to see Duffy play again.....

      People still reckon Duffy is miles better than Webster in the words of DarrenFreemansPerm?

      Webster is miles behind Duffy in terms of actually defending, he’s not particularly strong in the air, isn’t very physical, can’t track a runner to save his life, isn’t actually anywhere near as good at distributing the ball as people think, but he does have a nice touch and squares a mean 10 yard pass to Dunk.

      I'm with @DarrenFreemansPerm Duffy is by far a better defender right now, full international, much more physical, much better aerial presence, 2 seasons of PL experience

      As a defender, Duffy is head and shoulders (literally) above Webster as a defender. Given that they both play in defence - and I'm yet to see many of Webster's trademark marauding runs up the field (as he did in the Championship and presumably one of the reasons he was recruited) - I know which one I'd rather have in the team at the moment...

      I feel reassured having Duffy there when we're defending a set piece. Other than that, I'll have Webster all day.

      Unfair on Duffy? Seems rushed back from injury to me and hasn't played much under Potter and the "new" way of playing imposed.

      I was calling for Duffy but I don't think he looks ready and, therefore, I'd recall Webster (hoping the break and more time on the training field will have done him good).

      I do, yes. I’ll admit he wasn’t great on Saturday but it was his first start in months and he’s fresh from the operating table, maybe we should give him a larger sample size before bouncing these quotes. Webster was given weeks, months even of being inept, not completely fair is it?
      What?

      Do you think Potter will start Duffy against Sheffield United?

      Not even 1 month as he played at Everton on 11th January.

      Below the belt comment about Duffy he has just come back for surgery, probably hadn't trained a lot to try to fit onto a much changed team. He got some basics wrong , can't argue with that but given above circumstances not surprising. The truth is neither Webster nor Duffy are the full package if we could much the formers footballing ability with the latter's strength and commitment then we would have a winner.
