Ben Davies

When you have a midfield that lacks creativity you need attacking full backs.

Everyone can see the difference Reguilon makes when he plays.

Davies is useless in the attacking 3rd. It wouldnt be so noticable if we had a midfield of Lo Celso, Tanguy and Hojberg.
Lol we didn't need attacking full backs last night though. We didn't set up to play like that. The plan was to be strong defensively first to negate Burnley's threat.

Jose called the game exactly right before kick-off. He said we were not going to see us score loads of goals because of how Burnley play. Some on here think they know better though and get annoyed that we don't score six again.

Reggie isn't better defensively than Davies and that's why Jose picked Davies. If we had conceded then we probably would have seen Reggie come on to chase an equaliser.

As it was, Ben did exactly what was asked of him - stay strong defensively, don't give away soft free-kicks. A job well done.
 
Yet another great game for Ben. Been fantastic for us over the 6 years he has been at the club and has a long contract signed last year until 2024.
He's actually improved his game this season IMO. He is much better going forward. He's "won" us 3 pens and also "assisted" GLC's goal in the EL.
 
For those calling for him to never be seen in the shirt again, what happens when Reggie has a 'poor' game?

'Well then we want Cirkin!'

Ok cool. What happens when Cirkin has a 'poor' game?

'Then we need to sign someone better!'

Who the hell would sign for us when they're one 'poor' game from being banished by fickle, ignorant 'fans'?!

Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
Got a lot of undeserved abuse last night. Played in a game that didn't really played to his strengths which lie more in defending, which he did well whenever called upon last night.
 
Davies did fine last night. We only created one decent chance in open play all game and would have created more if Reguilon was on the field. Both can be true.

Doherty was worse for me. McNeil got passed him many times and his attacking was equally as bad as Davies'
Unless Davies reverts to his default of passing backwards his distribution is shocking
I’d rather he played CB

Doherty has age on his side and maybe Jose can do something with him but I agree he doesn’t look good atm
 
Some of the abuse he got last night was ridiculous and very revealing about the lack of knowledge some have of the game.

We all know his limitations. But he's a reliable, cool-headed, solid, no frills player. Exactly what was needed last night.

Similar to Winks last Thursday
Jose gave him a job to do and he did it

100% - A Ronseal footballer. Like Sissoko and Lamela I don’t like him starting regularly but you can count on them to do a job in specific situations.
