Gets on the score sheet today. Has been playing well lately for Burnley by all accounts.

Would he do that for us? If he was un Lansdown Road he would have taken down 2 seagulls with that shot. Maybe we need to change from green as it clearly doesn't suit our players.

If it was for us, he'd have hit a solid 5 yard backwards diagonal pass and we probably lose the ball 10 seconds later. Honestly don't remember him hitting a shot on target for us.

Belter of a goal and assist today, and should have had a second assist with a brilliant cross to Foster which he somehow missed.

Pity he's apparently not good enough to play for Ireland though.
We're decent enough..

He isn't. He can't get turned on the ball to make a forward pass, and unless we find a midfielder to do that, we aren't going to qualify for any tournaments be it now or in the future.

I had hope for that kid Moran at Blackburn but he still plays football with a kids mentality . Anytime he is pressed he hides from the ball and is a ghost in games . Unless he he grows a pair and decides to take the ball under pressure he won't make it at Brighton .

I hope the next manager tries Azaz in midfield . I think he is the only midfielder we have who possibly could take the ball on the half turn and make a forward pass.

I thought he was one of our best players in the window, he's definitely a good footballer. He's the new scapegoat for our fans

He is not. Giles or Brady don't rate him either. Two guys who really know football . Smallbone is no good either Kerr said as much.

The way i see it our only hope is to try Azaz in midfield . I honestly think he is our only midfielder who is capable of getting turned on the ball under pressure and making a forward pass.

Cheers Foden, himself and Moran will be playing LSL in no time I'm sure.

Dunne is not an International level RB because of one screamer and Cullen remains a limited player despite a rare strong performance at this level.

No Cullen is a decent championship player . Moran will need another loan because he hasn't been a success at Blackburn . He has very little chance of breaking in to the Brighton team without another loan.

Exactly people need a reality check . Serious football pundits such as Brady , giles and Kerr have said that neither Cullen or Smallbone are good enough.

I thought Cullen had a good window too.
I thought Cullen and Smallbone played well together against Belgium that would probably be my start central midfield pair for the next match.
I thought the Cullen/Knight duo didn't work.
We all know our midfield is the weak link of this squad and Cullen is no world beater but he is the best of what we currently have ATM to play one of the deep central midfielders. 
Molumby is injured, Taylor just returning from injury, Hodge not starting much much at QPR. We have a few no 8/10s in the squad Smallbone, Knight, McGrath and Azaz but I don't think any of them can be an out and out 6/defensive/enforcer midfielder.

Neither Cullen or Smallbone are good enough to be in our starting eleven. Its interesting that you mention Molumby . I would have him in the team as he is brilliant at closing down players . This was particularly evident in the Ukraine match where we harried the Ukraine midfielders and he allowed us to win battles in midfield .

Azaz i like, and he should definitely be tried in midfield instead of Smallbone.

Molumby is as conservative (if not worse) on the ball as Cullen. I would be looking for a lot more from a midfielder than their ability to close people down. Would not be giving up Smallbome yet - think he has more to offer.

Yeah but he is really good at it much better than Cullen. What has Smallbone to offer we have see him play seven games and he looked in one of them . I think it was a friendly against one of the minnows .

Azaz is far better on the ball and is more technically gifted . If he isn't tried out in midfield by the next manager it will be criminal.

Giles, Brady an Kerr have more or less said that neither smallbone or cullen are good enough .
They aren't all of a sudden going to transform in to good midfield players under another manager.

While I agree with you in Molumby offering very little on the ball, he offers some thing off the ball that Cullen and Smallbone don't .

Cullen and Smallbone are poor on and off the ball . If they are lacking in those two areas. I don't see why they should be in the staring eleven.

Cullen is the new scapegoat because he's not threading balls between the lines, he's not that type of player and is the best of a bad bunch.

Molumby shouldn't near in the team imo, he's very limited and lacks discipline. I'd love to see Azaz given a chance, neat and tidy on the ball and has an eye for a goal.

Azaz should be defo in the team. Cullen & Molumby are both average. Smallbone has shown ability at Southampton which he has yet to show for us - for that reason it would be ridiculous to give up on him after seven caps.

Smallbone showing ability in the chanpionship is no big deal  The championship is ranked the eleventh best league in the world .It is miles behind the premier league now .

There is nothing that stands out out about Smallbone . He can't pass, he can't shoot , he can't evade pressure .

Azaz can do all those things. I think he could have wes hoolihan type ability. We will never know unless we try him in midfield.
