I think Charlton had some of their better results last season when Field and Gallagher played together. They played a diamond 4 in midfield though, so it could have been the system they fit into well as well.

I certainly think we should give Sam a run sooner rather than later. If Megson had been given the rest of that season instead of Pardew, I think he'd be much further forward in his development and a good player for us.
Now you are talking, you know it makes sense.

Allardyce mentioned last night that we've had 1 positive COVID test in the latest batch of tests. Despite playing for the U23s against Stoke the other day, Field has remained absent from the first team squad when we could do with him as an option. I wonder if it's him who's tested positive?

Very likely. He can't seem to stay fit / well for anything more than a couple of weeks.

I've always liked the lad and remember when Gary Megson did a couple of games a few seasons ago, he played him every game and he got better and better and Pardew wrecked his confidence.

I have never seen anything to make him stand out, as far as I can see he's an average championship/league 1 player.

If he wasn't "one of our own" and he played for another team I don't think anyone would be aware of him at all

Pretty much agree with this. We had the same but to a lesser extent with the equally crocked George Thorne.

What he has got going for him is that currently none of our midfielders can tackle AND pass except him.

Got the curse of looking like he's ready to hold down a place then yet another injury strikes.

Of the two I thought that Thorne was a far better prospect. Field is mid table Champ level at best.

Definitely training this week. Needs to play Saturday in the absence of a signing at DCM.

Thank god. I can't stand the thought of seeing Sawyers strolling about anymore.

He was back in training last Thursday, not sure if it was full training though. Looks like he's in proper training now.

Please Sam pick him on Saturday, I can't stand another ninety minutes of Sawyers strolling around chewing his gum either.

As Jacko says, if we don't sign a DM, it has to be Field.

If he's fit, and can't get into this side on this form under this manager, then we know there is a fundamental weakness in his game and he needs to be moved on.

Can he be chucked in from the off ?

Unfortunately a requirement for match fitness would say no.

If we could only pick players on being match fitwe wouldn't have many to choose from.

This despite him not being good enough? I truly don’t think he is sadly.

I don't rate the lad, but we haven't got any other defensive midfielders.

Makelele he isn't but he is a better defensive player than Sawyers which in an Allardyce team is a pre-requisite. I imagine Mr Allardyce will start with him and withdraw him as fitness dictates

I would choose Field as he doesnt just concentrate on chewing gum and strolling about like a lost sheep haplessly letting the game pass him by!!

Surely he's got to play this weekend, and Grosicki too.

Come on Sam A, we're counting on you to engineer this team.... I know you can get more out of this squad and I really don't care who gets dropped to do it.

You might not be able to polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter.

If he wasn't even fit enough to be in the squad against Blackpool, I can't see how he's suddenly going to be ready to start the game against Wolves.

If we can get him to the point where he can play 20 to 30 minutes, I think Allardyce may bring him off the bench if we're leading / drawing, to keep the result.

Other than that, can't see him going straight in.
