Think a lot of people will  see the importance of having Richie in the side now he’s going to be missing for a couple of months. Hope someone picks up more of a leadership role on the pitch in his absence.

i'm interested in the other side, to see if we can use the ball better than ritchie does in advanced areas
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

I think Ritchie is ok with his use of the ball, but he lacks any real threat as an attacker because he's too slow to scare the opposition. Doesn't look like we've got an alternative with pace though, so we won't really see if it could work out well in that department.

---------Average PL standard LWB-----------
------------------------------------------------
---------------------Ritchie--------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
-----------Anyone else in the squad---------

It's difficult to discuss him without being very precise about the whole level of standards of wing backs in general. If you're evaluating him from a narrow point of view taking into account what he's up against in our squad it's not even a close contest and he will be missed. However compared to the PL as a whole he's just not good enough.

He lost my respect with his Ashley's a good owner bollocks. I couldn't wish injury on him but I hope he stands on one of the bairns stickle bricks when he gets up for a wee in the night and it knacks him for a few minutes.

Anybody else know why Rafa played this guy for 60 mins a game and then left him out every 4th game?

Ah yes yes it's because he's a liability to himself and his body can't take 4 lots of 90 mins even though he says it can.

Well his injury was the result of a bad tackle, nothing to do with fitness.

He runs in treacle and Willems will prove to be a far superior player. Shouting and berating isn't leadership.

Willems needs a good game or he’ll be written off as s**** before he’s even had a chance. A good run and that spot could be his.

Actually reminds a bit of the time Ryan Taylor was being used ahead of Santon. Ritchie is pretty much the same as Taylor really.

suspect you'll see a much improved left side if willems turns out to be remotely half decent on the ball

As much as Richie shouldn't get back in the side, hes a good egg and a very useful utility player, it will be nice to get him back in the squad.

There is no way he is taking Willems position but he will very useful from the bench.

He would have been perfect for the last 20 minutes against Bournemouth at the weekend.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

No disrespect to Ritchie but his injury was well timed as bad as that sounds. Had he not been injured when he did, I think Willems would still be on the bench now.

Would that have made any difference to results?

Doubt we’d have scored that goal v Man Utd, or the second at West Ham or v Bournemouth without Willems mind.

Willems has been pretty key to most of our attacking play or set pieces

A lucky escape you’d imagine from further injury playing under Bruce who would probably play him as a number 10. Get well soon Brave Heart!
