Fair play to him, another solid game today, another clean sheet and a goal.
I was one of them. Hands up. Buzzing for Paddy today, thought he was terrificI think a lot of people were being a bit unfair to McNair. The whole defence looked lost at sea under Wilder. Carrick went to 4 at the back and suddenly Fry and Lenihen looked like different players.
There was every chance the same would apply to McNair, but because of the form of the other 2 he didn't really have a chance until now under Carrick.
Pleased for him.
Yep. It's what I wanted to happen. Thought there was a decent chance, but expected him to go with Fry.Fair play to Carrick also, for sticking with last week's winning team, would have been easy for him to stick Fry back in.
For me Paddy keeps his place in the team, it's his shirt to lose.
Horses for courses maybe, if we are up against an old fashioned cart horse aerial threat forward, Fry may be a better option.You'd think it's Mcnairs to lose now?
He's a good player to have in the squad because he can cover several positions but he's not the best in any of those positions which is why he shouldn't be a starter.I've never really understood why he's been wrote off in recent weeks. He's been one of our best players over the last 2 years.
It's almost like people hammer him because he can play anywhere. The type you'd want in any squad.
I think I'm right in saying his last 3 starts have been a clean sheet? That said credit to Carrick. He didn't just bring Fry back who's also been superb.
You'd think it's Mcnairs to lose now?
I do actually. I watch him closely as I’m not as big a fan as some. I think he does lack that real aggression to his defending, if he had that he would be topAnyone think he could have made more effort to stop their player getting the cross over when they hit the bar?
Great unstoppable goal by Paddy as you say NB, thoroughly deserved, but Chuba's first goal was absolutely amazing. He hit the ball from the left side of play, across the goal and keeper into the far left, which their keeper had well covered but for a tiny space probably the size of a carrier bag to his left, which Chuba exploited. Magnificent goal and one he'll remember for a while I'm sure.Everyone's talking about Chuba's goals, but Paddy's goal was unstoppable.
