SCIAG If he really was forced upon Gomes (Nameless confirming what I've said reassures me that Gomes did genuinely say that) then it goes to show that forcing players on managers isn't always a bad thing. He's been excellent for us. Birmingham fans said he was reliable but no good on the ball, but I think he's look really solid on the ball too. Maybe I'm still going by McShane standards.
Think he's looked like what I expect of a good CB. Not a play maker but generally knows his limitations and tries to stay within them if possible.
Forced to play outside his comfort zone yesterday with the midfield and attack refusing to find any space and give him options.
