    You're entitled to that view.

    I disagree strongly.

    Look at Dan Neil there with that cultured ball in.

    I think that half from 09 was so so poor.

    I think the problem is he’s a likeable kid and absolutely gives his all. But when you look at the quality of Dan Neil we can do a lot better than Onein in centre mid

    cheers again RTB...

    onien not really turned up yet much like our passing...some good moves failed by the final ball, signs of it coming together towards the end of the half.

    pleased for obrien mind, deserved that.

    That half fair enough, seen him play well there plenty of times.

    Not really fair to compare his passing to Neil who probably does it at a premier league level. Is Neil as good at tackling and winning aerial duels as O'Nien? Nah.

    This, you cannot compare as they both bring different qualities to the game

    Pritchard off and Hume on, or Younger on and go to three at the back moving Winny into midfield, as I thing O/9 needs help nor criticism , just a thought.

    Aye in terms of tackles, aerials, blocks, interceptions, O'Nien is one of our best players. Nobody gets more tackles in than him statistically. Neil has a way better pass rate and is a lovely cultured player. Different players.

    I reckon if we dropped O'Nien we'd soon see what we were missing, unless Evans is fit to play as they do a similar job.

    You can’t compare those 2. Totally different position. Do you think neil would be a good DM? I certainly don’t. He can’t do “that”
