Shout out to Captain Fantastic.

Think Pack is worth a thread on his own.

Seems to have grown with the Captains armband. Rarely the star player, but seems to have become Mr Consistent, and very often the link between defence and attack which he has taken on his shoulders very well. Keeps it simple when he needs to, and us capable of a super ball now and again, but has learnt not to try it to much.

Has grown every season for me, and a critical part of our recent two wins.

I think he has gradually become one of the best midfielders in the Championship. He's just not a 'name ' player at a big club so nobody seems to notice.

Reminds me of Jordan Henderson in some ways - always looking for the ball, does a lot of the ‘ugly’ stuff, fantastic passer of the ball and clearly an influential if sometimes underrated member of the team 

So not like Henderson at all then!! :clapping:

Sent my mates a match report post-game yesterday and all I needed to say about him was "Pack was Pack."

An absolute class act that has all but eliminated his sloppy mistakes over the past couple of years. Biggest signing we made this off-season.

He is a lower league version of JH.

Another virtue is that ever since his Cheltenham days in 2010/11 he has regularly racked up 40+ appearances, that is some availability given his role.

But who is the brown dirt cowboy?

Well, several years ago it would've been John Wayne Allison, assuming he didn't want to be Big Chief Sitting Bull (the chief).
