He does the simple things and he does them very well. And Jedinak is a great player to bring on to kill a game off.

Heís been much better with Onomah beside him. Not having to do more than just break up play and be a nuisance. Before he was doing way too much, was unfit and making a lot of errors. Much improved.

Starting to really come good now. He'd be in my best starting 11 even with everyone fit. Id play him alongside Jedinak with Hourahane, Adomah and Kodjia further forward playing off Davis.

It's counter intuitive but in the last two games, once we've brought Jedi in alongside Whelan, we've actually stepped up our attacking

Might be a coincidence, or perhaps they form an impenetrable barrier that allows us to break from higher up the pitch?

I like the Whelan, Jedinak combo. Would love to see Albert, Hourihane and Kodjia playing off Davis. Snodgrass, Onomah and Grealish as back up. What a decent side.

I work with a Stoke fan. He was absolutely gutted that Whelan left, and keeps showing me the form for Stoke and villa since he left. Hard working, and he takes the hits ok

When they both play it allows the attacking 4 to move 15 yards further  up the pitch.

Still not sure about him playing in a two man midfield and not sure about him and Jedinak starting a game together.  Either of those two playing the defensive midfield role in a three man midfield  would be fine though, especially away from home.

He's still a crap box to box midfielder. Once again, Hourihane was dropping deep whilst Old Man Glenn went chasing the ball.

Well done, Steve.

10 points out of the last 12 I make it though.

Well done, Steve.

As for Whelan, I think he's been decent so far. You need players are going to sit deep and break up play and he's good at that.
