    He's not a centre back. Never has been. Never will be.

    His best role is in front of the back 4. I'v slated him from when he came to the club and broke a record for yellow cards in his first 5 games.
    I really do hope he starts on saturday in my opinion hes a back up to Tiote in DM. Very rarely gives the ball away and breaks up play well.

    He's never going to be a world beater or a starter in our team on a regular basis unless he improves radically but for now I'm happy to see him.

    Surely no one can deny he's been our best player over our last 2 games. Respect to Perch for sticking in and proving us wrong!

    Yep, he's no CB (or full back) but he is decent enough CM cover and usually does well there.

    I said on a thread a couple of months ago that I actually like Perch. I associate him with us winning as he generally comes on when we're in a winning position to help see out the game (bar Fulham) so I have a positive association with winning when Perchinho takes to the field.

    Had a feeling for a couple of weeks he was a holding CM, the 2nd half at Blackburn proved it.

    Ok sorry but if he's playing on Sunday and is rubbish I'm taking it back.

    Sod you all, I've loved 'the enforcer' for ages. Fans (as a collective) have a habit of bandwagon jumping, the worst in recent memory being the ironic cheers that Colo used to get at the start of the Championship season when he'd do something ace at the back, you know the ones that now get him a massive clap and a chant? Obviously Perchies a different league altogether, but similar principle. Perch is certainly a better option than Smith if we're closing a game out.

    Done well over the last two games which you have to be grateful for. Can't play centre back at any level. Not good enough for me in any position at PL level even as back up. Would like him shipped out in the summer as we press on. Good on him for sticking in though despite the many moans and groans. I may vent my anger after a game but I see little positive in doing it mid game which some seem to like. Thanks Perchy but please don't do a Shola and hang around forever!

    I agree. As I said a while ago, just because he's been labelled a utility player, it doesn't mean he's actually good at being one. Like most players, he may simply only do well in his favoured position.

    Better as a DM, I think he deserves a start vs Villa alongside Guthrie.

    Exactly. And I have seen enough of him in any position we care to mention to know he is not PL class, starter or squad, in any position. We need to leave players like Perch behind if we want o kick on,. Same goes for the likes of Shola and Lover in the summer

    I think Perch has done pretty well lately, but it's too early to apologise. 2 good games don't make up for 2 bad years.

    To be fair he has been moved about everywhere without a consistent run of games. However we have a young talent called Abeid to come through to be back up to Tiote.

    As his biggest critic I feel like I should say a few words....

    He is total **** but has played decently for two games in a row.

    Whoopee.
