    Was clearly unfit and he still managed a goal, what a transformation for the lad.

    Don't think he was that great tonight but can never fault his effort. Good goal.

    Yes he tries, but his efforts at defending and crossing and positioning can most definitely be faulted...

    I just love the guy. He is an absolute * battler.

    In Europe, I’m afraid he’s not quite there - and that’s nothing against him at all. I’d far rather have him as a squad option and a few games in the spl as opposed to a LB who will remain unnamed whose sheer * ineptitude alongside a dreadful scouting and procurement decision means our best fit defender needs to start on the left and ralston is left exposed against quality opposition. Factor in the fact jota really doesn’t seem to be the kind of player who tracks back to help out and ralston tonight was farting against thunder.

    And In doing so, gave * everything.

    Deserves zero * being fired in his direction tonight. At all.

    Was calling for him to come off then all of a sudden the Ralston from before his knock made an appearance in the last 10 minutes. Goal aside he also charged up the wing a couple of times and won us a corner.

    Honestly, he was beetroot that last ten minutes. He was miles off the pace, was a performance that looks clear if he’d been asked to play through despite fitness issues. If we had a full squad I doubt he’d have been near the squad.

    We should really be getting him a new deal, he's 100% earned it.

    I thought he was by far our best player over the two games against AZ

    He’s tries his heart out and has been immense this season, so I’m extremely reluctant to be too critical tonight.

    However, the one thing I will highlight is that his starting position is frighteningly bad at times. Hopefully Ange can coach improvement into him in that respect.

    My main annoyance with the full back positions is the positioning isn’t supposed to be the starting positions for normal full backs, it’s as auxiliary midfielders. It can * us at times. Does help immensely going forward though.

    I know what you’re saying, but I don’t mean in transitions, I mean when we’re in shape and defending. So I don’t really blame the system for that, it’s more an instinct thing.

    There’s a lot to really like about his game, but also a lot to be concerned about.

    Again though, he’s done us a great turn this season.

    Wasn’t his best game tonight but far from his worst. 7/10.

    Can’t even bring myself to chastise him because I have that much respect for the heart he’s showing for my club this season.

    If all 11 of the players on the park played with his spirit we’d be a team and a half.

    Nothing about his game says he’d suit us a CDM, like at all…
