He's been much better the last couple of weeks and all credit to him.

He will be involved next season in some capacity.

I have been a big critic of Bartley over the season but in the play offs he was immense. Something to build on now.

The games against Villa were his best of the season, he has been appalling all season, maybe he is a better than he has shown so far.

He has clearly been yet another victim of the WNA policy of Square pegs in round holes, played in a system which he is suited to and comfortable with he plays to his potential.
This is another example of why we need a team who acquire players to suit the coaches ethos and plan rather than because they have a reputation/ history !

You don't build a system around a limited centre back, a snotter. He was a victim of the system, but sometimes players need to adapt.

Would anybody sell him now if offered the £4m back by someone like Leeds?

Personally I'd keep him, he's proved he is a capable defender in the right system.

He had by far and away his best game for us on Tuesday,

That said, I'd get rid of him in a heartbeat.

Perhaps over the last few games he wss asked to play to his strengths. A no nonsense centre half and has excelled. Prior to that he was played out of position and  had to try and adapt the silly Moore/ Jones approach.
He struggled and the side struggled under a poor management  team.
There is a good player and a comitted player used properly.

Hegazi, Dawson and Bartley is pretty strong at this level. The problem is they are all very slow. So it works if we sit deep and defend, they can block and head it, but push up the pitch and press teams and they are vulnerable to pace. I wouldn't sell Bartley at this point. We shouldn't be weakening the squad when we have all the loan players to disappear unless it is to respond the cash and improve the team.

Blow me play him to his strengths; winning headers clearing danger he can more than do a job in this league. Just a shame took coaching staff nearly a season to realise
