    IMHO he's been consistently average since we signed him. He'll never be a Premier League midfield player and might struggle to get a team in the Championship, but unfortunately for us he's much better than the dozen or so other midfield players we've wasted Christ knows how much on.

    Sick of seeing his long balls to nowhere and coning short to receive a free kick only to give it back to the same player who`s now under pressure.

    He was comfortably our best player until he got sent off earlier in the season.

    He started out well but had been going downhill for a while imo. By the time of his red card he had had several poor games in a row

    At very least needs a rest. Don't know what he was thinking for their second goal but it was very poor. Sounds like Kassmuller did OK so we have an option to drop either Williams or Gardner

    Most people agree with that point of view. I never saw it. I think he was OK, he put a tackle in when the rest of our midfield simply refused, but I couldn't see this great player that most people alluded to.

    Just my opinion. I've seen a lot of great midfield players at Barnsley over the years, but Joe Williams has always been miles off.

    I wasn’t particularly fussed about his tackling. It was okay but he isn’t a midfield enforcer in my eyes. It was more the space that he made available for himself and others, always wanted the ball and used the same effectively and efficiently.

    I would’ve been delighted had we managed to secure him long term in January but alas it wasn’t to be.

    We'd be lucky to have him on a perm and hopefully it happens along with McB

    Watch the highlights back and then judge it again. Got lucky tonight after a woeful pass to know one that thankfully only lead to them hitting the post.
