    Not seen many comments about him this aft, how did he do? He looked OK in the first 20 minutes until the iFollow server went into virtual snail mode.

    I hope he didn't vote conservative in the second half...

    Seeing a hell of a lot of praise for him on Twitter. Sky commentator said he was playing very well too. Sounded like he had a good game.

    Pleased for the lad.

    Played very well today.

    Not great technically but as I’ve said all season his size and presence can be used to great benefit. He’s awkward and that’s a good thing.

    Yes despite the expectations of many on this and other forums he gave an all action performance. Well done Brad.

    Wasn’t breaking any a couple of games back ,in fact. He looked all washed up
    But today he came on and played like his CUP final.

    By the way Moncur did well when he came on. Held the ball well and gave the lads a respite. Gifted lad. Hope we keep him.

    He made a few quick turns. Looks to be trying to develop a bit of flair in his game.

    Acceleration, work ethic, tackling, getting stuck in... all top marks. He’s a very good player and I was excited to see his name in the XI today.

    Not the finished article, but will make a very good laiker

    Did well but I just get frustrated with his final ball.... He gets into some great positions but just can't seem to get that final ball right. Going in the right direction though and improving!

    I was going to make a thread for him actually.

    I think, on a couple of occasions in particular he splits opinion because some parts of his game are really good, but other (decision making) are really really poor.

    - He is good at getting the ball and running forward with it (as those who think he's good probably see every time he plays)
    - His decision making once he's finished his run is stunning(ly bad) (and that's why some people don't rate him).

    I think some people base their opinion on him on one of the above attributes, so he's Marmite (brilliant or shite).

    He’d be a decent player if he could sort his final ball out

    He gets involved more than Barnes who u all tossed over. He had a reyt game yesterday its about time a few folks swapped keyboards for singing lessons and made ya rattle at home games its becoming embarrassing the silence. Coyr
