So is Delph in my estimation,  if Besic does go to the championship dont be surprised if he makes the Championship team of the season next year. 😊

Did he make it in either of the last couple of years at Boro?

He might have for all I know, but I really don’t know.

He wasnt even a stand out player for them. He didnt see out the 90 mins very often and he even got dropped to the bench a couple of times. 

He showed what he is about last year in preseason for me. Looked great against the crap teams early on in the schedule and then when the ante went up he looked worse and worse.

Really like Besic and had high hopes for him. He's obviously not going any place at Everton, so I hope he settles in at Sheffield Utd and has a great season with them. With a bit of luck the move will become a permanent one for him.

I agree he's a very likeable lad and it's a shame he didn't succeed here.

Your spot on mate there’s definitely a good player in him, shame it didn’t work out for him here but a couple of shit managers in  Koeman and Aladyce didn’t do him any favours on top of that his injury woes.

I’d put him in front Gylfi and Delph, so welcome back Besic and fill your boots son, there’s an opportunity here for you to prove yourself at this moment in time. 

Doesn’t rate Gana, rates Besic. Give up on you Palfy 😂

Heading back to us.

Sheffield fans seem gutted he is coming back and want him again.

Besic would have made it here, and would have been a great player. His injury in Wayne Rooney's testimonial was at the worst time, and he never bounced back from it. Koeman had used him quite a lot that summer (and trialled him as an attacking midfielder as opposed to deep) and I'm sure that he would have been part of the first XI throughout that campaign. He would still do very well for a team in the bottom half of the table, an Aston Villa or a West Ham. 

He would provide better cover than Delph IMO, but to be honest I can't speak volumes on Fabien's positives. It was a questionable signing from the start for me and it's little surprise that he's not had the major impact people hoped. I'd sell both Mo and Delph, using the money to bring in a player of substantial quality and improve what is a wafer thin midfield. Only Sigurdsson, Gomes and Davies stay for me (and only André walks into a top club).

I still think he is better than most of our current mids. Same goes for Vlasic. Really unsure the logic behind signing Delph and loaning besic.

I can see exactly why they did it. More was expected of Delph, he’s just been a let down.

Besic is a mistake waiting to happen. I remember the preseason you referred to and thought he looked much better, like he had turned a corner, but in the last warm up game against the best opponent we had faced he reverted to type. 

He has some virtues but he is nothing more than a gap filler at this level or a solid Championship player.

Maybe Carlo can get something out of him, so let's not write him off.

I’d have no issue what so ever with Besic on the bench for our remaining games, we’ve seen delph, morgan and gylfi put half shifts in whereas this lad would give everything. He can play a bit as well. He won’t get us top 4 playing week in week out but I’d have him around the squad, especially if we are European games.

Yep both of these for me.  He does add steel to the pitch which is something we don’t have currently.

He’s not registered though is he? Sure he would be on the bench if he was available to be.

I’m not sure? Surely there’s some loop hole to the loan system as players are able to be re called and put into squads outside of registration periods? Again I’m not sure though. Davies looks off the pace, which is concerning. Gylfi had a good game second half just gone but it doesn’t say a lot.

Gylfi has a good second half against the worst team in the league. Playing against Spurs and Leicester will be a completely different level for him. 

I think we would have looked good no matter who came on for Davies. Like you say, the real test will come if he plays against those better sides.

When Norwich started to up the pace he was nowhere to be seen so I don't hold out much hope!

This is my point Bailey, Norwich actually treated us. I am really fearful for our midfield at the moment, as we look really poor. It’s like playing hot potato!

My only hope is that Carlo is working one step at a time, get the defence working together, then to midfield etc.

Yeah that’s pretty much the exact point I’m making. Depth right now is a concern in midfield.
