    Agreed. However I do think some of these issues probably aren't helped by the sudden death of his father, especially as they seemed very close.
    900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      This, l've seen booze, gambling and drugs, destroy too many careers.

      Without knowing the full facts of the matter, we all lose our parents sooner or later, and that doesn't really wash as an excuse.

      When did that happen? It certainly doesn't help and he's been hung out to dry a little bit this season I think.

      Compassion is obviously a particular strength of yours.

      Jesus, the guy isn’t even 30. Not many people lose their parents before that age. Get a grip and learn some compassion. What a wanker.

      No idea how practical it is but honestly feels a bit like him going back under Hughton's wing at Forest would really suit everyone involved at this stage

      Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      Shane Duffy has proved what a good player he is for a number of seasons.

      He's blatantly not past his peak, but has had one shocking season.

      It could be personal issues or is could just the environment and vagaries of form.

      Would still be a very good player in the PL for a club who want a beast of a centre back

      Agreed. Very good player in the right side.
      Time for some proper football, win lose or draw :-)

      This!

      I seem to remember Potter bringing him on to specifically nullify any threat from Andy Carroll.
      Which he did.

      I think it may be that game when Dunk was asked was he worried with a late chance had fallen to the opposition.
      He just laughed and said No he knew Duffy would deal with it.

      I've said many times, probably already in this thread, but I'm going to say it again: I bloody love Shane Duffy.

      He was a magnificent beast of a defender for three years for us and I don't think I'll ever have a favourite defensive partnership over him and Dunk. Absolutely heroic defending from 2016-19. It's a real shame it's not worked out at Celtic for him, I really thought he'd go there and absolutely beast the league. Strange how things turn out sometimes.

      He's not that old so there's plenty more to come from him and I hope he gets a good next move and finds his form and equilibrium again.
