He was awful but I always had him down as an attacking midfielder. That holding role doesn't suit him at all.

I'm sorry but he's not even good enough to be considered ordinary.

I feel for him as those 2 injuries have screwed him, but am mystified at the reviews he got at Forest based on these 2 games.

He lacks pace and awareness and I don't know what attribute he brings to the team.  The first goal started with a mistake by him, a simple mistake where he should have controlled the ball and moved it.  He didn't and then got robbed.  Not what you want from a midfielder.

Zero pace, requires far too long on the ball, contributes absolutely nothing.

He looks terrified in possession. He can't be as bad as we've seen this year, the Forest fan at work was raving about him last season.

He needs to be dropped for his own good as much as ours at the minute.

Can't have joined the fragile gang so quickly? Surely not? Terrible so far, not sure he'll be given many more chances by RDM.

Exactly where he was in 2012

In a parallel universe he didn't get that first injury and is on his way to being Sam's first England captain.

Too bad things have worked out this way. It goes some way to explaining why no manager saw his worth as a PL player and why he kept going on loan. But he's proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he doesn't have it. We literally need a net 2 or 3 high quality midfielders at least because it is crushing us in attacking and in defence.

Just another anonymous clone who masquerades as a midfielder as Aston Villa.
No presence, no guile, no skill, no ability to read the game, no ability to influence a game.

Just another player who runs around a bit in the middle of the park.

Wouldn't bin him on the basis of two games but it's hard to defend him based on what we've seen so far.

I have seen a couple of nice touches , but he is not mobile enough , gets caught on the ball.  I dont believe he was quick  before all his injuries so his probably slower , shame really
