    Which is strange because under Ronny and Brendan he was a consistent attacking threat, as a box to box midfielder in the 8 role, he should be making a far bigger impact in an attacking sense than he currently is, he's not a 6 mate, he doesn't win the ball back often enough to play that role, he doesn't protect the defence well enough.

    The 8 role should suit him best, where he can get the ball moving forward quickly to the attacking players and get into the box himself when the opportunity is there.

    First game in a long time you can remember him making a good few incomplete passes.

    Obviously been told to be more adventurous with Bitton sitting but it’s really not like him.

    Poor game by his standards.

    But, still popped up everywhere.

    Poor tonight - rare occasion. Conference league is our current standard tbh, he had an off night - he will have more nights that are better. It very much is what it is and he deserves a bit of a slack.

    Yeah, agree he was poor last night, which is probably the first time I can say that this season. Really think he's best suited to that deeper role - in Ange's system at least - but at the same time, we look better defensively with Bitton in the side. Bit of a dilemma when Rogic returns.

    Incredible finish for the winner, deft touch off the left * cheek - you can't teach that kind of skill

    Love him in that deeper lying role. I think he's key to dictating tempo from there.

    Made 3 dodgy passes and I was genuinely terrified he was injured because it was that unlike him.
