    I said as much in the shoutbox, but with the rider that it is incontrovertible evidence that his legs have gone at even Championship level. He’s now at best the ‘impact sub’ Mazzarri had him marked down for.

    We are chock full of number 10s and there is nothing wrong with that unless ......
    you don't have a decent number 9 . I also agree that Deeney could also be a useful
    no. 10 .

    If you think about it, Deeney is probably the best number 10 at the club.

    Is he the best playmaker? I would argue not .

    Anything past 1980 is absolute dross imho. Lotus is a great live album and also check out their Woodstock set, amazing.

    Edit, I thought we were talking about Santana?

    Deeney should be left back......

    I might be wrong but I think it was directly after Sarr didn't play him in. It looked like he was frustrated and wanted to put a reducer in on someone. Even if he'd got the ball, the speed he went in at was unnecessary, it wasn't an attempt to hook his foot round it and knock the ball into touch. But as I say, I may have misremembered it and maybe it was just poorly timed.

    I suppose when a player becomes fat, old, slow, lazy, ineffective and unable to carry out their job anymore then yeah, you could move them to another position.

    Or you could just drop them, and let the players that actually play in the position you want to move them to, and who are significantly better at it play there instead.

    Deeney should be left out......

    If his knee is still plaguing him it is doing him and us no favours. If he is going to be used use him as a substitute. We have to get Perica fit as soon as possible. It is a shame the link up we saw at the Owls between him and Pedro and being able to bring others into play was curtailed rapidly. There were promising signs.

    Could he be Capoue's replacement?

    Munoz on the Deeney challenge:
    “No, I don’t think it was an action for a red card. I am happy with Troy because he was involved in all the action and this is good for the team.”

    Reading comprehension: people aren't saying he's 'tried to injure him', they're saying it was a pointlessly aggressive and lumpen tackle.

    This is getting absolutely ridiculous now.

    Just as well they produced 'promising signs' because Murray was hopeless that day!

    Putting Watford aside, this game showed how poor referees are at this level - as this was a normal refereeing performance. It felt like most decisions were a flick of the coin to decide the choice. It had no bearing on the game as it wasn't pro one team, but so many decisions contradicted others he had made just minutes earlier.

    Deeney and João should swap numbers

    We were hopeless until the point of Perica's introduction. Then we created three chances. Amazing what happens when you get the ball to stick upfront and your deep lying midfield as it was that afternoon can actually make contact along with the full backs. He has to readied as soon as possible.

    He's nothing amazing is our Stipe, but is far more of a threat than either Deeney or Gray, if we are to go with 2 up top it's an absolute no-brainer to go with JP and Perica

    It's not just at this level - it's in this country. The referees are just as diabolical in the PL.

    Maybe but we haven’t seen him that much tbh - couple of bookings and a red card , fallen over a bit and a goal or two .

    Good run at Brum chasing a Deeney through pass to win a penalty and will have more mobility /pace .

    Hopefully a run of games will give him some momentum.

    Haha ahhhhhhhh, the irony.

    Reading comprehension from your own post:

    I didn't even realise it was your post that triggered my comments but look how you're analysing it and tell me there's not something personal making you view the challenge a bit irrationally? To reduce an opponent violently, for me means injure or hurt them.

    Guess you need to go and learn what a reducer is, then.

    There's no irony there - you've just claimed there is solely on the basis of inventing your own definition of a term.

    What exactly would there be that's 'personal'? I don't know Deeney personally, it doesn't make any difference to me - I just have working eyes and a brain. That's the key part, really.

    Apparently I do, because I have no idea what it means in this context.

    Mind explaining? Google was no help outside of the usual app/dev terminology I'm familiar with, so I'm lost.
