His type of game, a really solid full back - even 1 on 1 against players like Sanchez and Martial you're never too worried he's going to get rinsed.

Not a fan but was good today and we are more solid with him in the team. His passing seems to have improved

Superb today and very good overall since he returned.

Felt he should've intercepted that first Martial chance.

Other than that - solid as ever. Miles better than Manquillo and Mbemba at FB.

Said to my mate down at Palace last weekend, he f***ing loves defending. If there's a slide tackle to be made, he's in there like a flash.

The big shame is that he's still aaful going forward, which would mean ideally he'd be replaced for where we're hoping to be.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

I'm reluctant as to get a full back who can defend as well as Dummett and also attack would cost a fortune and would probably not be feasible for us. I think if he was replaced with more attacking player we would miss him massively. The solution may be to get a back up attacking left back to challenge Dummett but not to replace.

Our stats are always much better with him in the team - probably wouldn't have gone down last time if he hadn't got injured.

He's definitely Rafa's man, one of the first names on the team sheet.

I agree with this 100%. For a team battling relegation, clean sheets and low conceding is massive. 

The last time I think we tried the Ginger one and the big booty one at LB and they cost us goals.

He was. He's the only one who doesn't seem to have been singled out for his individual performance but I think it was arguably his best ever game for us.

The list of big name, big reputation forwards who get very little change out of the unspectacular Dummet continues to grow.

Has been spot on since he returned from injury. Always committed, defensively solid and while is lacking in quality in some areas, his crossing (from albeit a relatively small sample) has seemed a bit improved.

His strengths suit the type of football we're playing and the way we're currently set up. Will be his curse that the better the team get, the more at risk he'll be from an 'upgrade'.

I have to give credit where it is due.  I have been a huge critic of Dummett in previous seasons as well as this season.  I cringe at how uncomfortable he is on the ball and how quickly he looks to relieve himself of it but, I cannot deny that his defending skills and ability to put in a good clean yet solid tackle are very good.

He isn't winning me completely over but, I am less likely to moan about his name on the team sheet currently.  The team is much improved with him in it.

Having a solid, defensive fullback is much better than have a defensively suspect fullback with better attacking qualities in our current situation.
Those fullbacks than possess both positive attributes tend to cost more money than we're ever likely to pay, so for now he'll do for me.

How about we all get behind the lad now and support him?

Confidence and belief in him will go a massively long way to ensuring he improves as we improve

He has been solid for a long time not just since returning from injury, he has a decent turn of pace and is a cracking defender.

Plus he is a local lad and we should support him for it

i think the last one we fully got behind was Andy Carroll so howay

He deserves full backing like, he's earned it the hard way through performances. I and many others have been massive critics of him in the past but he's well and truly turned it around this season & last.

Have to agree on this one. I think its absolutely shocking that any player in any starting line-up in the Premier League is allowed to have so poor control of the ball, but on his current form it's hard to justify leaving him out as he has been very solid defensively which is what we have needed more.

I’ve honestly never understood the stick he gets like (on the ball I do aye). He made a couple of mistakes last season and people were using it to score points in some odd claim he’s a bad defender. He’s always been solid and has never looked out of place defensively in this league.

Because when you're paid millions of pounds to play football, not being scared on the ball is a pretty big thing. He's fine in games like Sunday against a big club where there's nothing expected of him other than to stop them playing. I watched him against Brighton however and it was alarming how poor he was feeding the ball to others. 0-0. A Paul Dummett special.

There'll be a day in the next year or so when we sign a left-back who can defend and also doesn't s*** himself in possession and we'll be in awe. He can do the defensive attributes well but that's the easiest part of football. Being able to head a ball clear, tackle someone, block a cross...that's basic defending and you get that throughout the leagues. For the Premier League though you need so much more.
