Conor is a different type of player to Wheelan so comparing them is just daft.  They both offer different qualities and on their day can both be very, very good with the right players around them.

The criticism Hourihane gets on here just beggars belief and that as much as anything tells me that generally blokes (or lasses) on an internet forum know very little about football.

For me the issue is that Hourihane and Whelan have very specific strengths and weaknesses. With grealish out all their weaknesses are exposed.

Thatís a product of the squad Bruce left not of their ability as players.

Glenn really performing as said he perform

Glenn Whelan cited in the Press conference before QPR  "covered highest distance for a while" and showed "hunger, desire, enthusiasm"

Fair play to Whelan clearly showing signs he's performing to abilities .
Hard working and enthusiastic thing he's one smithy will look to include on regular basis , fine to rotate as knows his role  and a dependable pro.


Itís a lonely road you are travelling on footyskillz.

I know which path to take. Don't need everyone joining when I comment on a player and what they can bring.

I hope I'm wrong on Steer though and that he doesn't cost us in the play offs he could have come to punch collect that ball before the Bristol city scored today.

I thought you were taking a break until Kalinic is back or the Leeds game. You came back to quote yourself

Glen Whelan is an excellent footballer, as was proved today.

Glen Whelan has been absolutely superb for about 6 weeks now. He was just all over the place today.

Good choice as captain today, it's a motd cliche but he really is a calming influence.

There's not many occasions when he just hacks it clear, more often than not he takes the ball under pressure and plays a decent pass into space.

The rehabilitation of Glenn Whelan is both a symptom and cause of the position we're in now.

Footy, the reason people have a go at you is because you wind us up by making comments like ď I hope I'm wrong on Steer though and that he doesn't cost us in the play offsĒ. Having persistently slagged him off , I suspect that translates in most peoplesí minds into : ď I hope Iím right on Steer so I can come back after the playoffs and gloat about my wonderful insight.Ē
Donít you get that ?

I quite like being talked at by a man/boy (?) with an inadequate command of English.  We didnít even have to wait for Kalinic to regain his rightful place as numero one.

Whelan pre-Match was atrocious. Now, he's consistently excellent.

Fair play to him.
