I may be talking shite here but Williams reminds me of Steve McManaman when he first came onto the scene, same physically and attitude wise, almost an arrogant strut about him, could turn out to be a very good player

I'm struggling to think of a player that reminds me less of McManaman!  I cant think of one thing they have in common..

That's fine though, McM is one of the most overrated players, never rated him at the top level although he did give Greeny the runaround at Wembley.

MOTM today Williams; won everything and was unlucky to get booked as he won the ball

Williams has some engine on him, he runs all day long, proper worker in the middle of the park, exactly what we missed earlier in the season. Not the prettiest player, won’t score a lot of goals,

Dead right Burnden and why has nobody given John credit for firing the ball in at the defender who was facing goal leaving him no chance of avoiding it. I don’t think it was as much a fluke own goal a

Do you not think we're riding our luck with no keeper on the bench ? I hope IE is not relying on Santos and Baptiste to repel all boarders forever.

I think we must have a good outfield player capable of being keeper of needs be otherwise its a massive risk week in week out.

I imagine Evatt think we gain a bigger advantage over the course of a season by having an extra outfield option on the bench. I can see the logic in that.

It's a bigger risk though given the age of our current goalkeeper. If he does it in the play-offs however (should we ever get there) I'll be pissed off.

I'm giving Maddison the benefit of the doubt too at the moment. 

He seems confident enough, he steps up for free kicks, he'd a decent chance today that didn't trouble the keeper, and he's willing to get stuck in. I think his fitness is the main problem. I've said it before on here, he needs minutes on the field.

And a rock solid chance.

Sarc ain't pretty but without him, we don't score

You’re right. His positioning for the second ball, his class on the ball. He’s an awkward fucker to pick up

Maddison will need 4/5 games to get into it, don’t forget there’s no reserve league for match fitness like years gone 

If there was anybody guaranteed better, leave him out

But theres not

Hes finding his feet with no shortage of effort

Nobody is guaranteed to be better than most of the players left out today.  They all have to prove themselves to get a look in, at the moment MM is getting picked on reputation, the others have to play well to get picked.

The other cant lose possession so many times in 45 minutes and stays on the pitch.  Not saying I wouldn't pick him, but he's definitely being treated differently because of what he might do, not what he's done.

Players need a run of games to start showing what they can do, Evatt will be aware that we can't to many players chances to find their feet, but as long as the other 10 around him are covering and supporting him that's fine, if in another 2 or 3 games he's not showing much, then its upto Evatt to make that decision, at the moment we stick with him, mainly because nobody better is taking his place, you've also got to remember the loan situation, something like 5 loans allowed, it's either Maddison or Zebeedee, Maddison all day for me.

Thing with MM, yes he has a reputation, yes he may be treated differently because of it.

Hes so talented though, in a game like today, he will score or make a winner before the season is done and that's why he stays on.

Said it Wednesday and I still stay it, probably said it today too, keeping Lee and John fit are key. They reek of championship class

With his talent and expectation it isn’t a winner before the end of the season, it’s one per game I’m after. Not necessarily a goal but certainly assists.

We need it really coming from mid table.

Doesn’t matter who we beat, remember United won the league beating teams outside the bottom 6.

we were really poor today.  Pitch seemed bobbly and the wind was bad.

I thought first half we did ok. Doyle should have scored from the Maddison rebound.

just never got into rythym, fairly comfortable at the back, but just constantly winning the ball back and giving it away.

2 away games in 3 days, 6 points - really need to capitalise with 6 from 6 in next 2 home games and then see where we are.

its 3 points, smile and on to the next
