Thought Conor had a good game against Chelsea, loved the back heel in the build up to the Diagne goal. Confident display.

He has been excellent. Not let us down once this season.

Very much deserving of his new deal.

Reminded me of the Grady Diangana back heel Dan, in the Championship last season when we first took Grady on loan - that resulted in a goal but cannot remember who scored and against whom....   it’s my age you know!

Kieran Gibbs I think.

For me he is the most improved player at the club, one of the first on the team sheet I would imagine.

Yes, when he first joined us i thought he was honestly poor but he has improved season on season and i will give him much respect for that.

He's been excellent for a long time. Very consistent and sorely missed when he was injured. The vision to back heel the ball to Pereira to assist for our fourth goal after bombing on was brilliant. Underrated on the ball. Not the biggest or quickest but also puts himself about to at least make it difficult for the opposition - which is more than sunbathing Gibbs ever gave us.

Conor must have sprinted 80 metres to get into space to receive the pass to enable him to make the Back Heel! If it had been a Full Back from the top six clubs, M.O.D. would have been shouting the brilliance from the rooftops.

Be very happy with him as first choice in championship and he hasnt done much to say he couldn't and shouldn't be first choice if we stayed up.

Regardless of level 2 cms are required as is a centre forward before anything else. Right back would also be more of a priority
O Albion we love you

Going to say it (and wait for the flack)

He is a keep, If we don't flog him to another Prem club, I can well imagine a promoted club taking him. (Age / experience (now) / upward trajectory / British)
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Has really come on this season and proven myself and others wrong. Whilst he did well yesterday, I am not sure that a high octane pressing game like we played first half suits him, it highlights his weaknesses which are average speed and being slow to turn. Much better when we sit in a little more, he is pretty solid competing in duals.
