I’d expect quite a lot of injuries now the discipline is going and we’re going to start losing regularly.

Longstaff has a better range of passing and reads the game better than Rice IMO

He demonstrated that under Rafa (probably under very specific instructions). He needs to demonstrate that under this retard before I can get as excited as I was at the tail end of last season about his potential.

If I'm honest, I have my doubts now.

So poor this season. Too slow, passing is wayward. It’s almost as if we got carried away too soon. People will use the Benitez card naturally but I’m just not convinced at all.

I still think he's going to be a very good player, but like everyone else he looks f***ing s**** under these walrus tactics and the complete lack of direction.

I think we’ll be looking back one day wondering how he was once rated £50m.

bruce's bad habit of chucking players straight back into  the first team as soon as they're back in full training.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

Surely the point is that under the 'Benitez card' he'd have continued progressing?

Half the players are probably shell-shocked at the transition, none of them are playing at the levels they were. He's going to look poor in this Bruce shambles, pretty much everyone does.

It's almost as if every single player is suffering because of the lack of a system or game plan.

I hope he gets out in January and saves his career

He can’t spend his full career under Benitez, though. The poor lad would have been mullered had he went to Man Utd. Benitez knew every players’ weakness and strength and got that out of them. Most of these players elsewhere would be very poor.

Of course not, but at least under Rafa he'd have been able to reach a certain potential. I don't think anyone here would disagree this situation has harmed his progression?

Young promising star went from Rafa to Bruce. The f*** kind of expectations do you have of him? A man who set his players for success and coached them in a manner of knowing their roles. New coach is about getting stuck in and having fun and a laugh. You don’t progress in football as a young player when you lose stability and you go from coach to coach. You may if you’re going Rafa to a coach of quality or instruction.  Rafa to Bruce is the opposite. Longstaff is not some seasoned pro who has enough in his locker. He doesn’t have a bunch of stars around him either.

I don’t think he has the attributes to progress though. He was able to do one of the easiest jobs on the pitch well (make yourself available in front of their two banks of 4) pass the ball to a team mate. He’s not very mobile, doesn’t have a great range of passing beyond the simple ball...maybe I’m being harsh but I’m guilty as anyone for getting carried away last season by him.

You’re being harsh. He covered insane amount of ground last season and even versus Spurs. His passing last season was fantastic. He was winning the ball all over the pitch and playing the ball quickly. Your memory is short.
