    IMO he's our Denis Irwin - unfashionable player as he's not at all flashy but is generally very solid and just gets on with his job.

    Diolch, Ben!!

    Spot on. No fancy stuff, just solid and pretty reliable.

    I feel the same way. But what is it that makes him seem not flashy I wonder? He does have 2 goals and 6 assists in 25 starts this season, after all!

    Guess it's just that he doesn't really dribble or try and use skill? And is a little slow for a full-back?

    I love him - he needs and deserves a song.

    I totally agree.
    But one of the things that irks me nowadays is that a player either has a song of their own or they have nothing.
    And it can take ages for a specific song to take off ( look at Son and ‘Nice one Sonny’. It’s not even original but it’s taken 3 seasons).
    What’s wrong with a simple round of “There’s only one <player name> ? Ok, it’s not inventive but it’s still singing a player’s name and has to be better than nothing.

    (Which also makes me a bit nostalgic for those down times in games (usually while an injury was being treated) when the crowd would sing for player x to ‘give us a wave’).

    Are his arms in a natural position?

    I would love to see Jurgen's old chant revived for Trippier.

    Can anyone edit the ball out, and photoshop the ref more over to the right?

    Would look fantastic - Gentle Ben booting the ref squarely up the ar5e.... Father Ted on Bishop Brennan style.

    Chimm-chimminee, chim-chimminee, chim-chim-churoo, Jurgen was a German, but now he's a Jew?

    The quiet man of our starting eleven. Under-rated and obviously a beneficiary of Poch's coaching in this position. Old Trafford will definitely be a test but he's rarely let us down over the last year.

    Will be interesting to see if Rose has the fight to try and get his place back in the team.

    I wish Davies would whip balls in more from the left flank rather than him cutting in field as he does quite often

    I wish football players would listen to fans more often since they lack coaching and in game management xxx

    Practically left him with nothing to do to score... Great pass though.
