Always can be our best player, when on form. 
Love having him in the team.

He was good and great to see but your last sentence does sum up his time here.

He needs to perform 2 in 3 games not 1 in 5 and if he can he will be a great player for us going forward.

The much maligned Jamie Paterson really put in a shift today and was MOM for me. It was nice he got subbed late on so he could get his justly deserved standing ovation.

Keep it up lad - it`ll be like a new signing if you can do it consistently.

Consistency is key with Paterson. Totally agree he was our best player today, the one single player we had who was happy to take the ball with a Barnsley player up his arse and try and make something happen!! He looked like he was playing without any baggage and that pass to put Eliasson away was top class at any level.

Could we play Pato where Eliasson mainly played and move Eliasson right with Fam up top?

I feel Eliasson is in Dasilva's way and Pato can drift into midfield opening space for Dasilva.

Also Eliasson is far more involved when on the right.

You’re right to wonder - I remember the uproar on here when he went...

I’m a big LJ sceptic but in fairness think the answer is 

‘If he performed , on a consistent basis , like he has since he came back , I don’t think he would have done’

No shit

The better answer is “KP and SS have underperformed at no 10 so Pato has been recalled”. Fair enough

The other thing I noticed was that he was prepared to put a few tackles in too. Perhaps being loaned out was the kick up the arse he needed.

I said the same, hope it’s the case

That’s what it said on them website

Not my words

LJ said in an interview the other week, that Derby sent him back.  The plan certainly wasn’t to recall him.

Because for at least 6 months he wasn’t performing to the best of his ability / what he showed before his illness

theres probably many valid reasons to criticise LJ, loaning Pato out isn’t one of them IMO

He was good today but, in a way, it sums up City’s problems. In the summer City signed Massengo, Nagy, and Palmer but none of them managed to get onto the pitch today . Patterson, Smith and Brownhill, who played, are all signings from previous seasons so how has the club progressed?

Would you like me to explain the word irony to you in respect of your two lines above ?

 

Or remind you about the post that got you banned ?

We looked much worse when he came off in the week - has really made a difference past 3 games. 

Seems odd LJ has had to loan him out really.

I found him frustrating last season - he clearly has ability but went missing in the majority of games.

I'd see it differently - he wasnt playing well before his loan and clearly his time away and the fact Derby stopped playing him at the end was the kick up the ass he needed to pull his socks up.  He did well today.

Good decision by LJ.

In my opinion easily our best player today. That’s 3 games where he has been effective and worth his place in the team.

Justifiably so. But fair play, he put in a very good shift today and one can only hope that he continues more often than not.

Your last sentence probably explains your second one.

But if he has the ability then it’s up to LJ to get it out of him - it’s just as much LJs problem here I think. 

Hope he can play regularly like he has in last 3 games.

He isn't good enough for us to progress to the next level.

Never been an admirer  of Pato, lightweight doesn't tackle hides at times.

Today in a line up so lacking in players with technical ability he stood out, had a great game worked his arse off and looked like apart from Elliason the only one capable of opening Barnsley up.

Smith and Brownhill solid but don't have that spark for me.  Baker had a sound game, D,silva getting up to speed  and Fammy had one of his Barn door games.

So hat's off to Pato deserves his place in the side one of only four players that I would be disappointed about if they didn't start the next game. (not that I think 7 of todays side should be left out!!)

By next level I assume you mean automatic promotion/prem, who is in your opinion? Bentley is probably the only one I can think of, which means we probably need 3/4 years to get the squad rotated again before it's ready so he is great for where we are now which is a midtable/playoffs team.

He also has to take responsibility for his own performance and career, the same as any of us do.

It's a bit of a weird one. 

When was the last time a long serving non-youth player was loaned out then came straight back into the first team upon his return? 

Really impressed with the way he's applied himself since coming back.

The only one i can think of and may of not came straight back in, was Johnson himself!

Can’t disagree with that - however from personal experience whoever manages you makes a huge difference in how you do your job and how you feel about it.

Very true - the guy has come back flying, so one way or another management has had an impact. Either LJ, or a grass isn’t always greener perspective.

Loaned out cause he wasn't putting a shift in, because he needed a wake up call. Quality player but was starting to coast, as he has always done at his previous clubs and why his previous managers haven't trusted him. 

Hope he keeps up his present form.
