    I think Williams looked better on the day, but they were both impressive going forward.

    I'd still have Cunningham ahead of him at Intl level because he's been doing it longer, is steadier defensively and has already acquitted himself at Intl level.

    But there should be room for both of them in the near future with Ward not getting any younger and no other sure thing to replace him.

    MOTM in the game against Brighton according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

    Apparently nullified the threat of Anthony Knockaert.

    Has to be considered as a successor to the left back position.

    Darragh Lenihan a contender for Player of the Year according to the same paper.

    Has to be considered purely due to his versatility.

    That's fantastic to hear. Hope Hoban gets into this bracket of high achieving for Blackburn.

    I saw Lenihan play in the middle of the park for our under 21s against Italy last year I think. Could see his attributes but thought he struggled on the ball. Was probably forced to play too advance in a flat midfield as part of a 4-4-2 as well which didn't help. He's clearly making the centre half position his own and I hope it's not going unnoticed by the management. There's a queue of centre halves at Championship level ahead of him. The onus is probably on the younger lads (Egan and Lenihan) to move up a level to the PL if they're going to skip ahead of McShane and Pearce. Otherwise, their relative experience and arguable reliability will be enough for them to remain in their stead.

    Second of the season for Blackburn today - potential option for the left side of defence in Stevens' absence? https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49617719

    Watched the first half as Molumby was playing. Belter of a shot from outside the area for his second league goal this season. Defensively he has been doing okay as well. Difficult game for Molumby but did okay, hopefully it’s the start of a run of starts for him.

  11. Thanks From:

    Is he playing left side of a three at the back with Cunningham left full? Did molumby do much on the ball?

    Looked like the left of a 3 based off the team I saw. Didn't see anything but the goals myself though!

    It's nice in fairness and he normally is inclined to look for a forward positive pass not just sideways Bob stuff.
    Looks to have all the tools doesnt he? Maybe doesnt score many goals?

    Presumably, as the son of a US national, he wouldn't need a work permit to earn a living in the States?

    He did well against NZ. Could he be called up to latest squad with Coleman injured and Keogh obviously gone?

    No footballer at his level will have trouble playing in the US. Bigger question is why would he go there with his career prospects.
