Love Elmo, as said above never lets us down when heís called upon. Things flow properly on that side when he plays and he guarantees a few great crosses a game.

For how little he cost us he's been a great signing.

I'd give him another 12 months regardless of what happens. We'll certainly need him in the championship with the extra games anyway.

I agree, he knows that league and will be useful to us.

Has to stay in the team. Likewise Hourihane.

Agree with everything that has been said about Elmo, top bloke rarely lets us down, true professional never hear him moaning, when he's not in the side. Just looked him up on Wiki, didn't know he's got 91 caps for Egypt, that is very impressive, has to start on Thursday.

Becoming my favourite player. No fuss, just does the business. How old is he anyway?

Must start for me at Everton, the bloke has been a brilliant signing for us and deserves more than he gets in terms of starts. Quite how Smith sees Hause as a better option at RB baffles me.

Seems like a no brainier doesnít it, full back for a full back, rather than shuffling people out of position.

Thanks PWS, I thought he was a bit older, about 33 when we came up. Should definitely have played more games

I'd happily have him about for another season, regardless of division. Think he's quite an underrated player, was a bit of a fan even back when he was at Sunderland.

Does tend to fade though so I'd have Konsa/Guilbert ready to come on for the last "quarter" after the drinks break/word from our sponsors.

Yep, like Hutton he struggles to get back into position after a break up field in the 2nd half, McGinn, Trez and AEG covered in behind him a few times. I'm also not convinced he can last even 70mins in back-to-back games with less than 6-7 days between them. He's a good crosser and definitely offers us something but he looks, on this season, like a guy who's a year or so from retiring.
