Thread: Bennett

    Bennett

    I much prefer him on the left than Peltier. He gives us a proper balance and i thought he was excellent today.

    His corners were decent too. He tried to put pace and whip on them instead of just floating them in.

    You could see he has a point to prove today.

    He is top drawer. You dont see many full backs that can stroke a football about like this lad.

    Very classy footballer. I do worry about him a little defensively but he's by far the best left back we've had in the last few years.

    Good player-far better than their's who is apparently a £20m player.

    £25m bid rejected, according to their owner. Something tells me he might be telling porkies.

    He is undoubtedly very comfortable on the ball; I'm not convinced about his defensive capabilities though (see Villa away).

    Maybe he is the next Gareth Bale?!

    He's 27 in March, so I doubt that but he's probably best suited to a wing back role. If we got a defensive midfield partner for Gunnar, you could afford to play him at left back without too much risk as he'd always have cover. I can see why Peltier was playing ahead of him but I'd rather Bennett.

    Re: Bennett

    Agree with the majority of what has been said, including comments on his defensive duties.
    The first quarter of an hour or so Villa got most joy from their right wing and they should have scored when he and another City player got in each others way.
    I have to say that from then onwards he was excellent, got stuck right into Agbonlahor (who seems to have doubled in size in the last few years).

    Bennett deserves his place in the team perhaps could develop into LHS midfield? He looks a real find

    When Darcey Blake and Agbonlahor were playing youth international football an NP, I seem to remember someone posting that the crowd had sung "Gabby, Gabby, Gabby, Gabby Agbonlahor, his mum's a whore, his mum's a whorrre" to the tune of Karma Chameleon.

    Re: Bennett

    He's a defender whose strength isn't defending.

    Clean sheets are our priority.

    It will be interesting to whether Richards displaces him.
