Unbelievable that there are so many people keen to knock Chris Brunt. He has been a tremendous player for our club for many years, loyalty sadly lacking in most players these days. He has been played out of position in a formation unsuited to the whole team. Play him wide if, say, Barnes is injured and he will deliver again. Super CB!
You could play him wide but Barnes is one of our front 3 in this system, Brunt is more left sided midfielder these days. It probably wouldn't happen but we'd be better off giving one of the younger brigade with pace a chance as pace to threaten the opposition is important.

Brunt is ideal to bring on if you need a goal with fifteen minutes to go, send him out wide, let him whip in crosses. Wide left or wide right.

It remains to be seen if he can play in a three man midfield I wouldn't rule out the possibility but equally I'd be in no hurry to see it.

Or he can whip crosses in from LB if we are chasing a goal.

Brunts last season here for me whatever division. He's been a great signing for us and he's become a wealthy man from playing for us. Win-win alround.

I believe we've won all but one game when Brunt hasn't started. No coincidence for me.

I don't think it is down to not having Chris Brunt in the team, per se, but I do feel it is strongly linked to not having Chris Brunt in the team as a central midfielder.

The injuries to him and Bartley before the Leeds game were a God send. Darren would have likely played both yet again, but with our winning run he cannot really change the team. Long may it continue.
