Just now, Bailey said:

He is certainly better playing the slightly more advanced role rather than sitting deep. We surely must now start playing with one sitting and the other two breaking forward.

Tbh I was just happy to see Richarlison and Sigurdsson fucked right off. We looked hugely better without the pair of them and I hope we stick with it.

Even when he is sitting deep he is making smart forward runs. Keep him in the side and challenge him to keep improving/ consistent levels.

Really happy he’s back on track and showing signs of improving into a good player.

A very good performance from him, and we looked better without Siggy, but that's another thread.

Good passing, movement and pressing. The more games he gets in a role that suits him the better he will become.

He has proved a few critics wrong over the last couple of weeks.

Hasn’t proved anyone wrong until he does it consistently over a period of games. He has shown he has the ability now let’s get the consistency.

He cant get the consistency if he plays two games and is then left out for six, the  Manager needs to pick what he thinks is his best team and let them all get the  consistency.

No but he has come in and performed at a level that warrants his selection whereas before he wasn’t.

??    I think hes come in before and he has played well,  but then gets left out again   🤔

He has had moments and then faded in my opinion. I want him to do well and hope he keeps this level for a good run of games.

He has, people doubted he had the talent, the ability to play at this level, he has proved them wrong.

Yes now he needs to demonstrate his ability consistently.  To do that he needs regular games in a position he is suited to, and support from the fans. We need to remember he is only 20 and will be inconsistent.

Cant think of anyone who said he dosent have talent, however 1 good game a season does not mean he's proven himself in this league.

He hasn't proved anyone wrong he's had two good games and I'm made up for the lad but to say he's proved people wrong is ridiculous 

Shall we say he's proved his critics right as he's had far more piss poor games than good? No it's pointless petty and unnecessary

Myself and others who doubt him will be more than happy to be proved wrong believe me

By playing that well against one of the best teams in the country he proved people wrong who doubted he had the talent to perform at that level.

At the risk of repearing myself I have said he needs to do it consistently, which I believe he will if given the games in the right position. 

My articulation of these views is not pointless or petty, and I believe it certainly was necessary given the stick the lad has taken.

Listen Mark. If you don't rate a player he can never have a good game, can't play a pass or make a tackle; he can make no contribution to the team whatsoever and is possibly the worst player ever to wear the shirt. Any decent play by him you were talking to your mate/in the toilet/opening a beer/washing your hair (delete as applicable) so missed it.

What stick has he had? I couldn't care what's said at games etc we are referring to on here before that old chestnut possibly gets thrown in....

All people have said (myself included) is we/I don't think he's a starter or he has "it" to become a player starting week in week out at the level we want to be aiming for 

That's no different then the endless list of players who people have had the same thoughts on over the years regardless of age, he's had plenty of games as well but I do admit positionally and in that set up yesterday he looked much better 

As said he can spoon feed me humble pie week in week out and I'll be made up for him and anyone else who dons the shirt but let's see how he fairs first

He must also be classed as the worst player ever to pull on a blue shirt.... never forget that.... and to make matters worse you find a way of trying to convince people that Scott gemmill was far better than he was credited for despite leaving the club and going on to do fuck all.

Enjoyed watching him last night. In fact, I thought that midfield 3 was awesome and complomented each other quite well.

I've always thought Davies was a good compliment to Gana. Leave Gana back to do the scruffy stuff, as he's a little terrier, although Davies to go further forward has he has that bit of extra 'flair' if you like. Both will run through brick walls for you.

Gomes in the mix. That guy is just a pure athlete and has a bit of everything.

Keep these 3 in, as long as they perform this way, and we'll be a much more solid team. Back to basics Marco.

Bit of irony (which is what that was) has been the backbone of the site as long as I've been here, along with people having a dig at each other; not quite sure why it's upset you:huh:.

It can't be a good sign for him that while not getting chances in the PL with us he couldn't even make the bench last night (he wasn't injured). Also, coupled with Gbamin's injury it doesn't look good for him.

Could've done with loaning him out this season. Have him play every week and actually nail down a set position and see what's what.

He's got more chance of making it with us in this sort of role IMO. 

For me he just doesn't have any of the qualities you need to play further up the pitch. While he doesn't have the positional sense to play a deeper role, that can be learnt as he goes along.

I hope we don’t toy with the idea of sending him out on loan in the, because he would definitely go the same way as Lookman and possibly Kenny, 8 minutes this season isn’t good enough for young talent like him as we found out with the others, I would say to Silva play him or lose him. 

He’s just not good enough.  Nowhere is he better than the starter.  If gbamin was healthy Davies would be 5th choice at cm behind Gomes Delph Morgan gbamin.  A loan is the best because it would increase his value if he does well and we could sell him.  With the players in our side I just don’t see him making it here.

If you look at someone like Torreira at Arsenal, davies could feasible be the same  type of player. Small in stature but can read the game from a deeper position. He always wants the ball which I like. If he can settle in that position I’m sure marcel would be happy with Morgan’s wages off the books

I don’t know where you get the impression Davies is small? He’s nearly 6 foot and is filling out well. I’ve said before I think he would do well in midfield 3 and be a very good back up for Gomes.

He's better than Morgan, mostly a different role though.

Even at 4th choice, I'd agree with the loan.  Needs to be playing regularly.  Not to the champs though, he's already better than that.  Lower prem or bundesliga.

Moot point though.  He's stuck till January and Silva needs to get him game time.

If we're going for the cup, Sheffield United at home probably a good chance to start.

For me it simple with Tom, his best performances have come when he is further up the pitch floating in-between the lines and helping us control the game where he can run in behind and also drop between the CBs to pick up the ball and move us forward.

Ideally I think he would be more of a box to box player in a single pivot 3 man midfield but in the same breath he doesn't score enough goals. Its tough for him at the moment as I don't see where he fits in other than to play as the sub for Siggy when we are ahead and need to see the game out.
