I'm not sure it's unfair, when he starts a game he's fucked by half time and slows down more and more through the game, yesterday is a much better way to use him but it relies on us having someone starting who isn't a liability and yesterday Jedinak put in one of the worst central midfield performances I've seen for years, he was so far short of the pace of the game it was scary.

I thought Whelan was excellent today. He could actually be a key player next Sunday.

Could it be that part of the problem is that Whelan simply doesnít have the legs to play 2/3 games per week? We have 8 days until the Blose game so good time to be fully rested, and now being able to utilise a fully fit squad could be the best way to squeeze the best out of him even if thatís just to steady the ship as a a sub with his experience.

My "Man of the Match" yesterday. Sorry Jack. Whelan was everywhere. At the right time. Gives such confidence to the defence when he plays like that.

He was superb yesterday, I struggle to see how SJM will get back in next week.

Great to see you he is being respected for his footballing ability and am sure he is a top bloke in the dressing room. Jack Grealish made one comment, Kante, says it all

Chuffed for Whelan because despite what others claim, he has been one of our better players all season, even during the poor run. He is just a lot more appreciated when we win. That said, Derby and today are his best two individual performances for us and he doesn't deserve to be left out next game so I hope he isn't.

My issue with Whelan this year has been the number of games, like the Blues match, where he looks fucked after an hour and his game falls apart. By all acconuts that didn't happen yesterday and he's rightly being praised for his performance

The other side of the problem was when he was DM with Jedinak and Chester behind him they looked slow and immobile as a unit and only Jedi offered any physical presence which saw us bullied repeatedly. In a team with Mings and Hause behind and McGinn and Jack in front he's a very different player because his weaknesses are covered much more effectively.

Is his contract up in the summer? The cynic in me wonders whether he's playing for a new deal and whether he would be same if he was given another year. Hopefully that's just because of past experience though.

I think his deal is up in the summer, I also think as excellent as he was yesterday it helped that everything was in front of him. Middlesbrough had no pace at all to turn him with.
