Blackburn must be annoyed.
« on: March 19, 2011, 11:47:28 PM »
As a club and as fans.
Reid was a bit of a favourite up there until the string of injuries. Given to us for a pittance, he's now marshalling us week in week out.

Thanks Blackburn :)

He has been very good since he came to the club.
Keep it up Reidy.

Reid's done well for us, but a bit of perspective please!!

He's a good player, a Premiership quality player, but there's no doubting that he comes with a cost due to frequently getting injured, sadly.

Let's hope he stays fit.

PS He does a good interview, seems a good guy.

Al Little overrun in the second half but we do need him in our team.

I think second half either Reid or Thomas should have been replaced with some fresh legs with someone like Jara.

That said hes been our most consistant player when picked

I think he was only over run second half as Thomas wasn't supporting him defensively because he was out on his feet which is understandable after the effort they all put in yesterday.

But I have to say I love Reid as a player, always liked him ever since he was at milwall

He's reliable and does the basics well, nothing more you could wish for from him. It's very rare he misses his sliding challenges, I only noticed him miss one yesterday but normally they get the ball. The second half Arshavin had abit more room, more because he hogged the touch line and their passing drew us sideways.

I think Blackburn will be more annoyed in letting Big Sam go rather than Steven Reid.

I always thought Steven Reid should have been playing regularly after joining the club, with the only problem being that it was difficult to find a place in the team for him. He is equally comfortable at right-back or central midfield, but he had one or two players ahead of him in the pecking order earlier in the season.

Thankfully, Roy Hodgson has come in and realised what an excellent player Reid is, so is now playing him in every game. He looked tired towards the end of the game yesterday, but he was definitely one of the main contenders for Man of the Match and has been one of our most consistent players this season when selected.

He is just a quality quality footballer who has fitted into the team well and is really helping us stride forward

Just a shame we can't play them again now I am sure Reidy would enjoy that! Ridiculous how we had to play them twice in 2 weeks - some fixture computer!

If only we'd had Hodgson since the start of the season eh?

 Think Reidy's been fantastic since he's got back into the team. It's not just his play, it's the way he urges his team mates on ... proper leader. Captain material (imo).
