His pace and strength can be an asset, but I would hope that he is used as a squad player in certain situations rather than as a first-team regular. To move forward, we need to improve our ability to work the ball through the midfield, and he is definitely not the answer to that problem. One or both of the Longstaffs would help in that area.

looks a solid mid table PL midfielder to me, hard to say any more at this stage
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Not really sure you can take anything from that game alone, particularly given the difference in his first and second half performances. He was solid enough for Burnley though, he'll be a handy enough player to have in the squad.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

He's not wrong though, based on last their performances last season. Hendrick played better than Matty vs Man Utd which was the best Longstaff performance last season.

He's played one game man. Jean Alain Boumsong is capable of playing good in one game, especially when it's his debut and he's eager to impress. I'll reserve judgement till I've seen him for at least a few months.

:thup:

It's a good start, but need to see him in more games against better opposition.

Played one game for Newcastle yes. Hasnt shown anywhere near being clumsy enough as Boumsong during his time in the PL.

He's also played 30+ matches in the PL the last 4 seasons for a team that has done better than Newcastle, and is a full international. I think it's safe to say he is better than both at the moment, not just based on this 1 game. Longstaffs still has age on their side I guess.

I'm not saying Longstaff is definitely better right this moment, but lets be honest Sean Longstaff would get in that Burnley side they've got Ashley Westwood starting central midfield ffs. Longstaff would also get in the Ireland squad so I'm not too impressed with the fact he got games for Burnley in that midfield and gets picked over Glenn Whelan.

Decent performance from him (and the team), but he’s bang f***ing average as are most of our players, under a s*** manager playing against a somehow worse West Ham side, although you have to factor the Moyes effect...

We’ve seen Sissoko tear it up against Chelsea and he was s*** (miles better player than this fella though). Nowt to be excited about and if so, shows how desperate the situation at the club is right now where everything that isn’t s*** is thank the Lord stuff.

Don't think anyone's excited over Jeff Hendrick and are fully aware he's nothing more than bang average. Canny performance from him though on Saturday and better than both Longstaffs iMvHo

We're all well aware of how desperate the situation is, that's why we're grateful for anything that isn't s***.

Sean Longstaff has - or certainly had, based on 18/19 - absolutely ridiculous potential tbh. He looked like he just about had it all. But it's probably not the most barmy call to suggest that Hendrick is a better option right now. Not that I know a great deal about the latter.

The Longstaffs are both works in progress, but they will improve and have the potential to add more technical ability to the midfield, which is where we are found wanting at the moment.

Whether at this precise moment, for a particular game, you might prefer Hendrick is a fair point, but the Longstaffs have got to be given a chance if we are to develop.

Aye, comparing a 28yo international with a 22yo and 20yo still taking their first steps in the game - of course Hendrick looked better. That's the challenge both the Longstaff brother have to contend with - displacing the likes of these senior pros

Agreed, and I hope they succeed in doing so. Time is running out for Sean though unless he has the eternal talent syndrome Ameobi had. He turns 23 in a month so it's critical that he manages to force himself into the side this season.

Not to disparage Hendrick as I haven't seen enough to judge him, but if Longstaff can't compete with him, he's probably never going to be more than a squad player.
