Wilbs


Super

Recommended Posts

He was fantastic today. Lots of moaning about his selection beforehand, but he never lets us down. Won plenty in the air today and led by example! Used his experience to disrupt Newcastle at times too. 

Giefer - some great saves. Need to see the goals again though.  8

Vyner - woefully exposed at times. Poor positioning. One exceptional tackle in the box. Didn't get forward. 5 

Wright - looked solid. 8

Flint - solid, commanding performance. 8

Bryan - had a good game. Defended well. 7

Smith - ran himself into the ground. Box to box today. 7

Reid - did ok. Put himself about. Some sloppiness and should have done better with his chance. 6

O'Dowda - very bright start. Great outlet, but faded. 7

Cotterill - worked his ass off. Took his goal well. Unlucky with the free-kick. Good deliveries. Showed good experience and leadership. 8

O'Neil - some tidy play. Good tackling. Barked instructions and helped keep our shape. Set up at least one goal, if not both. 8

Wilbraham - 9 for the reasons above. 

Subs:

Not on long enough, but Hordur looked good. 

LJ - took too long to sub a knackered Smith, instead waiting for a defensive corner!! And the selection of Vyner wasn't a good one. Set us up really well on the whole. 7

Edit: had to mark O'Neil up because of his involvement in the goals.

Hope to see him get more game time whether starting or from the bench. Clearly can still do a job at this level. One of my favourite players in recent years.

Agreed. Excellent signing. A fine professional. What a shame he's not 7 or 8 years younger!

Re Vyner he didn't have much choice after the shocker Matthews had on Wednesday and Litts being injured

Sounded on RB that he was a real leader on the pitch and was constantly giving instruction, proper Captain and I guess a player that the younger ones respect. A goal and helped out in defence, a real rock and a real credit to the shirt.

 

Good man is our Wilbs.

If you listened to the RB post match interview with LJ, Wilbs has an injection in his hip every 6 weeks under general anaesthetic.

Lee said that Wilbs comes back like sharper in the following weeks, like a 27 year-old.

 

Seriously? Every 6 weeks he has a GA for a hip injection? Jeez, that's dedication right there. Fair play to the man. Not many people would have the balls to do that so often.

Fair play to Wilbs I said when I saw the line up,  was saying he could barely last more then 15 minutes how wrong was I! 

Still was blowing come 60 minutes but then again so were half of the team.  I think he needs a rest for villa game but don't see why he couldn't do another 60 minutes against Burton!

I still can't choose a Man if the match but maybe wilbs edges it for his effort levels considering his age!

True. He should have signed cover for this weak position. No excuse in my opinion. 

Little 

Matthews

Vyner

Thats more than enough in my opinion. We aren't Chelsea, however we definitely need to use the money we will save on Matthews wages next year to get a solid championship right back.

Dont think they'd put him under GA every six weeks

If he was he'd have cost us about £4m.

A classic example of never judge a book by its cover, as I remember the outcry on here when Cotts signed him.

What we actually got instead was the most dedicated professional we have signed in many years, a total team man and a role model for everyone at the club.

This term gets thrown around a lot, but seeing as he also was top scorer in our first title winning season in 60 years, for me he is a City legend.

Love the bloke.

I wonder what kind of injection it is? 

Ive never heard of a GA used to give injections. Local anaesthesia is what is commonly used.

The after effects of a GA can include low mood and low energy.

Wilbs, restores my faith in footballers. Credit to his profession.  

Shinning example of dedication, class and commitment. If only we have a team full of Wilbs. 

Should be inspiring some of our 'duds' to make the most of their talent... but, clearly, some are so securely locked into their modern 'it's all about me' footballer bubble that they are beyond help.

Yeh 4 times a year. And the effect of the injections last for around 3-5weeks 

Absolutely agree with what's being said above. A true leader and professional. A credit to the shirt. A lot could learn from him!

We obviously need to utilise him for these 3-5 weeks. Explains why he's great then off the pace. Need his experience and leadership massively though.

I would. I have 

Weren't you bothered about having to sign your life away every 6 weeks? GAs are risky everytime and so to have one so frequently would surely put a strain on the organs. I've not had a GA (only op I've ever had was done under local) but I wouldn't be bothered about having one, just if I had to have one so consecutively!

Can only assume it's directly into the hip bone or socket. I know of people who have had injections direct into shoulder and elbow though under locals. Perhaps it's awkward to get to and needs an endoscope to find the precise position.

He'll have hip problem in later life for sure.

Denis Law can hardly bend his knees now 40odd year after he retired.
