    Yep, me too.

    Wouldn't take much for us to be right in the relegation battle.

    I meant more than he'd replace Chair and Chair would replace Eze from time to time as sub or started if Eze having poor form.

    Maybe because you're not looking closely enough at his whole game and looking how the play changes with him on. He's an intelligent player.

    If you hadn’t mentioned the name of the player, I’d have come up with possibly a dozen before guessing at your description of Pugh.

    Hope to free fall in the space of a month.

    He is, but I fear his legs may be going.

    At last Clarke sets up Wallace for a shot, our first this half, but he shoots pondorously and over.

    His whole game? He’s meant to take players on and get crosses in. What qualities am I missing?

    They went very close there. They've taken over the game after they scored.

    Kelly saves us again from a very short Bright pass.

    Pugh is a decent player. Just needs a run in the team. Positioning to stop play and break it up, I reckon he must feel it has been wasted season with the amount of time on the pitch he has been given. Don't forget, he was at dull city last season and did very well for them when given a decent run in the first team

    Oops just heard the result. Awaiting meltdown on Twatter. Seriously if you lose your best striker and have the worst defence what do they expect? Not really good enough and i really do believe we will be looking over our shoulders.

    We were rubbish after they scored Didn't create enough chances when we were on top, and didn't take the 2 or 3 we got. If Hall's header had gone in rather than hitting the post maybe it would have been different. Never a pen either.

    Why didn't Hugill get subbed? I can't believe how he can be so poor and stay on. BOS had a really poor game and was the last to get subbed.
    Another **** ref!

    Wigan getting beat was the high point of the day.

    Ok, now that the game is over I can explain exactly what I mean.

    We're playing both Chair and Eze in almost every game at the moment. I think that we don't need to play both at the same time as they play a similar style. I think Warburton is just trying to fit them into the team because he likes them.

    When they both play, one of the two will be playing on the left (with Bright playing on the right). The other will be playing a fluid central position.

    Neither Chair nor Eze are good enough to defend on the left when we lose possession. A lot of people are only looking for the good in Eze but there have been a number of dangerous situations and even goals that have come from Eze being lazy or having really poor positioning for when we lose possession. He sometimes drives me crazy.

    I do like Chair. When he's hot, he's red hot. Eze can be unplayable at times but I would call him an actual LIABILITY in terms of defending. This is not about their individual nice bits that they do. This is about getting points and moving up the table. And we're where we are in the league not because we can't score but because we're conceding.

    Now... how does Pugh solve this situation? When he plays on the left (allowing Chair or Eze to float around in front of the opposition box and have less defensive responsibilities) he not only defends intelligently, supporting Wallace (whom I also like) and puts a lot of pressure on opposition defenders, but he also either holds up possession on the wing and can cross or drifts in and out from the left into the middle for some effective team passing in and around the opposition box. He also is good at poaching a goal from time to time.

    We look more solid and stable when he's on, compared to when both Eze and Chair are on together. I hate and love Eze. I would love him a lot more than hate him if we took the defensive responsibilities away from him.

    Case in point with Eze: towards the end of today's game there was a shot on goal that just went wide of our right post. Another Huddersfield player got very close to the post unmarked, for what could have been a tap in. It was Eze that should have had him.

    We always let in 2. Every game. And since Wells has gone we can't score either. We look in big trouble.
