There was a period of time after he signed where most fans would agree his main issue was a lack of courage, self-belief and confidence. He seemed overawed by the crowd sometimes.

Now however, he's one of our bravest players, willing to make runs, take players on, take shots from distance and whip in crosses. He's come a long way and I'm glad he's part of the squad this season. Well deserved.

Will be interesting to see how he does when fans return.

It is interesting, epitome of a confidence player like, but there's an air of self-belief about him this season that I like a lot.

He tries his best but I dont think he has the brain at time ..Granted he scored a nice freekick against Wolves and had a great assist against West Brom but he either overruns the ball or holds onto it too much and concedes possession
As i said he does give his all but I think Rafa knew his limitations

I've said it time and time again, like a lot of our squad he's simply Championship quality. Not enough flair, poor decision making and isn't quick enough over a yard to be a Premier League winger.

needs coaching.
john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"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."

He really is a s*** player.

Nothing good about his game at this level.

Thought he provided a bit of spark and drive when he came on? Team full of safe and sideways merchants, or players that just want to pump it long. He’s a bit different, at least. Although he did f*** up trying to force it at times.

Same. Offers something positive until we get ASM back in the side.

I doubt ASM is in a rush to get back to this shitshow :lol:

Same, he's still a bit rough around the edges, but he's generally been decent this season.

Nowhere near PL standard, don't even think he was the best Murphy in that Norwich side was he? And cost a fair sum from a pitiful budget that summer

What are scouts were thinking watching him play when Maddison was playing for Norwich at the time

Maddison cost double Murphy and was never going to end up with us.

Murphy needs to play in his team because he has mobility. At least tries to be positive, which you can’t say about many in the team. He will try to do something other than pass the ball backwards, often making good runs in behind that his teammates never see....

Under a decent coach, he could be useful.

I don’t know what Bruce and the other t***s in the dugout actually do all week.

He's preferable to a moron like Hendrick playing wide. He isn't that good though, certainly nothing to worry about for PL defences on a regular basis - never has been, and likely never will. I bet there are dozens of Championship wingers that you could stick in the side that will try and be positive with the ball, doesn't mean they'll be any good at doing so. 

How well did he get on with his loan spells WBA, and Sheff Wed?

He got 9 goals for Sheffield Wednesday last season which is a decent return.

I’m just saying that he should be given a chance and a run in the team right now when we clearly lack anybody with some form of ability on the ball

He does all the hard work running/dribbling with the ball but he needs to lift his head as often runs into trouble or loses it too easily

Thats partly due to lack of options.  5 at the back then 2 midfielders sitting just in front of them.  Anyone who wants to play forward is going to struggle.  Id  give him a go until fraser or Billy heedband are back.  Almiron cannot play on the right

If you’re a left-back, there’s no doubt he’d be one of the easiest opponents you’ll face. All he’s got is knock it past on the outside, try and get round him and cross it and he’s average at that. He’s not tricky, only got one foot, doesn’t go inside or outside...so predictable. I like him but not a Premier League player.
