Remember when Stuart Pearce put David James up front ?

This thread is lost on me. Where are we ? What’s the relevance ?

Well you see if we'd have won yesterday we'd have also qualified for the UEFA cup, just like Man City would have, but playing a player out of position meant we lost. It's a great analogy!

Thanks. My instinct was it was a stupid thread and I wasn’t being thick, but always worth checking!

Seems quite a bit of a stretch to compare putting a goalkeeper on up front when you had outfield options with playing a striker at RB when you don’t have many realistic options & he’d done ok there on the 2 previous occasions, but whatever floats your boat..

Personally from memory I didn't think he did to bad defensively. Problems were caused on his side by Williams being poor at supporting him and covering. Williams was even pointing at him to cover the run of other players when it was obvious it was Williams's responsibility.

Yes he made mistakes on the ball but that was going forward. Assume NP took him off because of this and didn't want him to get to dispirited.

Didn’t Bell play really well in the same position the other day?

Seems to have escaped you/been deliberately ignored. 

Well yeah but the post wouldn't be negative enough if it acknowledged that.

It's a dreadful comparison but can't say I'm too surprised...
