I would rather - and I genuinely mean this - have Hourihane back. At least he knows how to take a set piece. Other than that, I can't see any difference between them.
not a Hourihane fan but I agree.

Just donít see why Smith is persevering with him.

Options are limited I guess, Ramsey hardly got a kick when he came on for example. Grealish, Sanson and Trez all injured

Barkley is rubbish though. Try Traore in his position instead

Only 3 more games and we can wave goodbye to barkley for good. £11m loan fee for what? I thought we were past wasting our money on players like barkley.

I disagree on Ramsey, I think he did ok again today, he gets involved, makes himself available and looks to get the ball moving forward. He had 20 touches and played 15 passes in the 25ish minutes he was given, I'm ok with that, I'd be fine with him in ahead of Barkley for the last few games.

I thought Ramsey was good,covered a lot of ground,was involved and passed the ball first time.Considering him and McGinn were alone in central midfield,they both performed well.

I donít watch any of the u23 or u18 sides - what is Ramseyís best attributes and whatís he good at?

He seems ok so far. Just struggling to see whatís going to be really stand out about him.

Iím not doubting he could be a good player just interested to know more from those that have seen a lot more of him.

Arriving late into the box and scoring goals, we need to give him a shot in the more attacking role in midfield ahead of Barkley.

I've spent that much time venting my spleen about the ref I clean forgot about the performance of Barkley.

Shit.

Get rid.

'Another' false dawn..... But no doubt he'll still get game time against Everton mid-week.

Our midfield needs rebuilding.  Only Jack gets a pass, Traore probably, but with some stiff competition brought in.  Barkley should get nowhere near a permanent transfer to Villa and should not be part of any rebuild.  Would be a complete waste of money.  I honestly think that Barkley is one of the main reasons we have gone backwards since Christmas.  He will probably do ok against Everton, being a former team and all.   I just hope we don't have a 'play so many games and you have an obligation to buy' type clause.

Next season I'd move McGinn into the 10, Jack left, Ollie up top, Leon Bailley right, Luiz/Sanson/Chucwuemka and a ****** in  the center.

Number 10 needs to be a goalscoring and creative midfielder, like Jack is.  I'm not sure that SJM is quite up that role.  Played ok in the odd game here and there but we need to move forward and upgrade.

How has Conor's time at Swansea been viewed by their fans, generally? I know he got a fair few goals early on but I'm not sure he's even a regular starter now. Be interesting to see what takers there are in the summer. We already have a midfield full of PL middling-quality, there needs to be a proper injection of higher-level players in those positions in the summer.
