Who is a our best player?
 
 
Who is our number one player who we should keep at all costs?

Last year it was adama.
The season before? Negredo?
The promotion winning season? Gaston

But this season we have a steady Eddie in Clayton.

Ayala was the glue of the defence and he scored for fun. He is now a sub.

The player who excites me the most is tav.

Clayton has been one of the worst

Randolph has been the best, he's kept us in games to steal points we probably didn't deserve and he's the only player who'd get into any of the other clubs' first Xl

Fry has the most potential, and most sell on value and he has been very good on the whole. Heís obviously not s full back and is just filling in there because we have no one else. Ayala and Flint are good centre backs as well at this level and Wing and Tavernier have potential also. Clayton is good at holding but maybe itís time he moved on after this season. Of the rest meh, donít think Iíd miss too many of them to be honest apart from George whoís been a great servant and clearly loves the club

It should be Braithwaite but we've done a Stuanni/ Bamford thing again and wasted him out wide. It's therefore probably been Randolph overall so far this season. Had a nightmare against Villa but has otherwise been really consistent. Clayton the same. He's limited (as is our entire squad) but he does what he does well week in and week out. Downing has been reliable and much underappreciated too as seems always to be the case with him with a section of our fans.

Haven't got a favourite player, which tells a story.

Who do I go down to especially watch? ... Well if I went down to watch a defensive midfielder who slows down play and runs around pulling people back and plays it five yards backwards .... I may as well pack up.

Clayton our best player[xx(]

Perhaps Tav in the future will be enjoyable to watch and a exciting player.

Clayton is a fantastic player. If he played in advance role and he scored the goals that he did at Huddersfield then he would be blue ribbon player.

Ayala should be the first name on the team sheet. He is the best defender in the championship for me.

I thought this season would be the breakthrough season for Harry chapman. He has a massive six months ahead of him it is now or never for him. I honestly believe he would be a champions league level player.

Without Clayton we would have a Villa every week; he can at least deal with most midfields.

But Clayton is not a world beater. He should be a good player playing an important role.
That Clayton arguably is our best player sums up why we are so rancid right now.

The player who I most like to watch is Lewis Wing which again shows how tragic our lack of quality really is.
The player of most value is clearly Fry given he is young, high quality and improving.

Our team is an upper mid table one with a big, horribly expensive, imbalanced squad.
Our wage bill will be eye watering in relation to squad quality, performance and value.

£45m+ worth of strikers with barely a mention tells a story. We are very short on exciting attacking players.

Randolph and Friend are the only 2 guaranteed starters. We have some good centre backs but none of them stand out because they are all good. Each one of our 4 CBs could be any other team's best CB which is a good position to be in. Our midfield is good at what it does; protecting the best defenders in the league...

Midfield is obviously our major issue and the reason we don't score enough. We have no creativity or attacking intent. 3 or 4 players with identical attributes. They are all decent at it but it leaves us imbalanced.

i agree with Rico that technically Besic is our best but he struggles within the system and those around him .
Randolph has been the stand out performer
Clayton does what Clayton does its not pretty but hes top level at it.
fry,Wing and Tav have stepped up and are very promising
the rest Shotton aside have been decent to poor on the whole .

Clayton and Randolph. Howson was our best player earlier in the season but unfortuantely he's gone back to his form of last season. Still think bringing Wing back into the side will really help him rediscover his form though.

football wise, probably Mo.

Ayala and Flint first 2 names on the team sheet, we don't lose many when they both play.

Braithwaite is the most gifted striker
Britt is the best striker.

I appreciate that Randolph has done exceedingly well this season, but he aint a top class keeper and never will be - I would be surprised should he play in the EPL again. smashing bloke, ive no problems with that and I expect him to be here for next season, regardless of the/any managerial merry-go-round.

I would say Randolph.

He might make a mistake now and again, but who doesnít? When a striker makes a mistake he misses a sitter. When a midfielder makes a mistake he gives the ball to the opposition, when a defender makes a mistake he allows a striker through on goal.

But when a goalkeeper makes a mistake, itís a goal for the opposition.

The relatively low goals against tally this season tells us Randolph is doing pretty good.

After those 2 honestly there's no one we'd miss if they weren't here.

Randolph for me without a doubt.

Have to say that I would not place any of the outfield players in the 'must keep' category.
A gaggle of half decent defenders, a sideways shuffle of bang average midfielders and nothing up top to shout about - all worth substantially less than what we paid for them.
Tav is probably the only new bright spark.

ďDon't get the Clayton "love in". Yes he wins the ball, as that's his job. But he's got nothing else to his gameĒ

That statement sums things up he does his job.

Randolph performs well in goal, that is his job too, he has nothing else to his game. Why is more expected of Clayton just because he is an outfield player? Players play to the instruction of the manager

He breaks play up and when the opposition are too sharp for him aka Villa's, he has an utter mare

What about the other 10 and their roles? He is not superman, he can not be everywhere. Villa did the damage via quick passing and use of interchange including the flanks. They have pace and creativity in the final third. If you notice i have been calling for just that for 3 years. Villa are more clued up than Boro and as sad as that is for me to say, it is so true presently

Clayton has been great for us, the issue at the moment, IMO, is that he doesn't have the players around him. He can win it back, hold the game up, pick the ball up off the two or three centre halves... and then have to play it sideways or backwards because there is a general lack of options ahead of him. Howson and Besic need to do more, IMO, and we badly need to add a winger in January.
