And in the dressing room, no doubt

Not for me, would be used in rotation with Gareth Barry. Should have started today.

I've never been a Brunt fan just my opinion. He as been a good servant and I imagine he's a nice bloke but he as been finished for a long time now and it's time he was left out of the squad in the future nothing left to offer, thanks for your loyal service Chris but it's a no from me.

Not in the same class as Barry, a defensive midfielder should be able to tackle Brunt cannot

Not got a problem with Brunt. Great servant who has never been any good playing centre mid and is worthwhile keeping in the squad for cup games and emergency left back.

I do have a problem with the guy who shoehorns him into central midfield at some point every single game, despite the fact that he has been useless every game he has played there this season. We have Barry, Livermore, Johansen, Harper, Field, Phillips, Hoolahan and Morrison who are better in that position. Even allowing for injuries and suspensions, the only reason he's getting on the pitch is because Moore is inept.

A great servant, scored some great and important goals, but needs to finish in my opinion. I have backed him all along and do not wish to lay unfair blame on him, but today was very poor. His lack of concentration contributed to us losing today. He hasn't got the pace and his crossing has gone.

Was a great player - he’s bang average

It’s painful watching him in midfield. Players dance round him. Poor positional sense, can’t shield the back four and can’t tackle either

Took him about a minute to cost us a goal today.

He's slow, can't tackle, barely puts any decent corners/free kicks with his magic wand of a left foot... so what does he actually bring to the team now?

Like many have mentioned, he has been a great servant and no one can deny that but it's time we move on from him if we want to progress as a club.

Well done brunt on hitting 400

I feel bad for him he is getting pelters because he's been played out of position and because of his error today.

I love brunty too bits and still think he could offer us something this season but not as a cm. Now we have lost Barnes I think it would benefit us to play 442 and have brunt and Montero competing for left side. And Phillips and Murphy competing for right side. Getting Zhrk out team and not having Gayle out of position.
O Albion we love you

Should not be anywhere near first team enough midfielders a head of him in squad, don't understand Moore's thinking.

I'm as big a Brunt fan as you'll find, but even I can say we've kept him a season too long. His passing no longer justifies his inclusion for me.

His passing these days is woeful. He's been given 24 appearances this season out of loyalty and nostalgia from Moore not because he's earned it. Form and application should determine player selection not reputation within the dressing room.

Has been a great servant to the club but enough is enough. Doesn't bring anything to the team anymore, lacks pace, can't tackle, corner kick delivery is poorer. His muffed kick that lead to a goal reminded me of the clearance he screwed up against Swansea last season that cost us points. Yesterday should be the last time he plays for the Albion. Sorry Brunty but you are past it and it shows.

He’s never been great but has been a great servant who has played a key role for many years. As for now, he should not get into the team in any position.

Agree. He's passed it and is played out of position...it's not his fault I suppose but his legacy fades with each week that passes.

It reminds me a little of Olsson who stayed too long, but at least with Olsson he wasn't used as much when he was passed it, whereas Brunt seems to feature more often.

Very poor decision to bring him on, but nobody could envisage that error.
The resemblance to Ollsson is all to familiar, a great servant but now way out of his depth. I was hoping for a Neville-esque retirement statement yesterday, he must know that his status within the club is being tainted with these poor performances.

A player who we has fans should show our respects to for his long loyal service to our club along with Morrison, but their carrier's are coming towards the end. Its the manager who fields the team & makes the substitutions. Everyone makes mistakes.
Respect guys.

I think it's out of respect we want to see him out of the team, as I said, his status is waning with every poor performance.
Would be delighted for him to stay at the club in some capacity, provided he has the skill set, but it's time to call time on what has been a very commendable playing career.

My post wasn't directed at anyone individual poster it was just a reminder to what Chris & James have down for our club

They have been very well paid for what they have done, and in Morrisons recent history for what he has not done.
Do not ever forget that these two players were senior players at the club, when the team stopped playing for Mel, Pulis, and Pardew.

will never be held in the same bracket as Astle / Brown / Cyrille so not a great player.

A good loyal dependable player whose time has come, Chris do the sensible thing and tell DM that whist you're happy to be around the club and pitch in on cup matches or if our squad takes a massive hit of injuries, but otherwise you recognise that its all a bit beyond you now.

You will walk away (from 1st team) with pride and the respect of the fans, whereas .....

Well over the top, he did an air kick? A mistake that happens to players up and down the leagues week in week out. Are you expecting Gareth Barry to retire too? The fact is Brunts performances this season are nowhere near as bad as portrayed. Never dipping below a solid 6 out of 10. Less than a month ago he ran the game against Wigan.
