Soft c***s those Peruvians, if it was Uruguay there’s no way he would have been able to continue.

I thought Miggy was Mexican?   :undecided:
Ffs, I hope you are joking.

Must have shagged Bruce’s daughter or something.

Funny how Wilson had the ball played in for him for the first time in the match as soon as this lad came on. Weird that.

Absolutely wasted

Won’t matter if he becomes the second Messi next week, he won’t be starting

Hindsight is pointless but you cant help but wonder how different tonight would have been with him playing the time he deserves on the pitch

It’s not even hindsight most have been calling for Miggy to start for weeks. Seems fairly obvious to me he should be playing left wing, his tracking  back would help Lewis who is weak from a defensive point of view. You then move Maxi to cam where he has recently come out and said he wants to play.

If I was Miggy I’d be hounding his door and calling him every minute of every day to either play or get out.
Disgrace he’s being left out.

Him, Wilson and ASM are the three players that should be the first names on the team sheet any f***ing day. Doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

he'd make a better central midfielder than hendrick, and a better wide forward than joeshinton.

I fail to see why people are standing up to him so strongly other than the fact that he's better than Joelinton and Hendrick, reality is he played a large number of games for us and hardly made an impact, unless he starts improving on his old self i'd rather start Fraser.

They should both be playing, with ASM and Wilson in the front 4.

Was that those games where he was our only outlet and only player who could take the ball from defence to attack? The games where he was increasingly unlucky not to score? The games where he got into great positions but players like Ritchie wouldn’t make the pass to him? The games where he actually got an assist but for whatever reason it wasn’t actually credited to him?

He'll come in next game and be played on the right hand side (because Bruce) where he struggles to have an impact , and we'll look awful again, and we'll lose again.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

I agree with that but people suddenly started to talk about him as if he was the second coming of Ben Arfa, he hardly impacts game for us and just runs around all game with little end product.

i just think it's more the fact that he is better then a number of players that have started. little end product? how many assists compared to his colleagues this season?
he's not world class or anything but he's much better than whats n the pitch.

fans' frustration coming through that there are better options on the bench than on the pitch.

The imapct of having a player who make fast transitions like him is not something that shows up in stats, but its still really important
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Dyer was similar in that respect and a lot better imo. Think he was under rated looking back just because his finishing wasn’t great.

if you look at a lot of our goals/chances and trace the play back, miggy will have often played a pivotal role in it 3 or 4 passes back.

cant remember it know but we score a great team goal last season and its started with him chasing down an opponent at left back and winning the ball.

Man Utd for the Longstaff goal? Seem to remember him taking his time and playing the ball out rather than launching it.

5 games in now, still haven't seen Wilson on the pitch with ASM, Almiron and Fraser.

From what I can see I don't think we will either. Bruce is obsessed with set pieces, and he doesn't want to play those three attacking midfielders together because in his mind we'll be too small a team. 
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.
