    Right the kid had a hard time in his start to life with us. But I see a player in there and I like his attitude.

    Hes similar to Townsend and he has a few assists and one of the only players who takes on a man and quite often gets past.

    His crossing is improving and he is clearly a confidence player.

    Do we have a unsung potential hero in him for the remainder of the season?

    He can play. He’s worth a place in the team. And he’s better than Hendrick.

    Thought he's played well recently... I think he earned a start vs Burnley.

    He’s actually not a bad player. We paid good money for him aswell.

    I just think he deserves a chance. He’s kind of earned it.

    I have been saying this for months. Every time he's on he's trying to make things happen. Id start him.

    He definitely deserves a start, and is overdue one, but past history suggests he performs better as a substitute.

    Must start - especially with ASM out injured. Where was Fraser at the weekend? Great form for Scotland, not in our squad?

    I think Bruce may have cracked the nut here playing 3-5-2. In reality it will work as an asymmetrical 3-4-3 when all our best players are back - Wilson and ASM, with Wilson playing off the right but more centrally and ASM a higher wider left inside forward, Miggy playing deeper as a right, central, winger (tbf he has the energy to play two roles) and Murphy as his full back bombing on with Lewis/Ritchie on the opposite flank and Willock and Longstaff providing the legs in CM, take your pick of 3 CB's - Id have Schar- Fede- Lejuene.

    Earned the right to play.

    If this is the stamp of player we are now rating heading forward however, then you are well prepared for Championship football. Not good enough at PL level and certainly not if we want to get away from perennial relegation dodgers. Can't knock the kids effort mind, he's never given less than 100% for Newcastle. If some of our more talented players had his attitude, well they probably wouldn't be at Newcastle <laugh>

    Kid deserves at least a 12 month extension given he will leave in the summer. Definite promise in the lad. We'll probably let him go.

    Should be retained, certainly. He's showing signs of major improvement after a poor start.

    26 years old, derided by fans and overlooked by two managers for the best part.
    He'd be as mad as a hatter if he signed another contract.
