That's a bold statement. One has consistently played at the top level, the other.....
Not meant to be digging Donk out tbh - but donks gifts are more physical - he’s big, he runs around a lot and has good stamina. Ronan is the opposite - he has far more football ability in his technique and vision, but he’s much smaller and limited physically (although still has a really good engine, but never going to beat the likes of Donk in the air!)

If we want to win games then if he is at PL level we go with Ronan, if we simply dont want to lose games then we go with Donk, I have rarely if ever since he has been with us seen Donk create anything, the issue with Ronan is is he a PL level player ?, the only way to find out is give him game time.

Ok, that makes sense.

REALLY? I cant remember donck ever winning a header
I can remember plenty. They go flying into the crowd from point blank range in the penalty area. When he defends, he never wind headers I remember the game Bruno brought him in at the back he actually misjudged the flight of the ball and Bruno never played him there again

If we stick with a four and play Ronan over switching to a five and playing Coady, that’s a huge sign to Conor (not Connor) that he doesn’t have much of a future here. Either way, we really shouldn’t be in this position.

Good luck to Ronan if he starts. Huge opportunity for him.

If connor has a run of games and does well then you are looking at his transfer value rising from 1 million to 5 million plus

im pretty sure he’s scored a couple of headers and (according to the PL stats page) he’s made 111 headed clearances, surely they can’t all have been unchallenged.
He's actually never kicked a ball, won a header, made a pass. Every game he is 2/10 and the reason we lose. Sorry Hwang is also sometimes the reason we lose.
The rest have never put a foot wrong.

Technically he is good but I don’t believe he’d make the bench of any other premier club.

Division Two standard for me. Hope he proves me wrong.

Nothing against the lad but if Lage won't play you today then he never will.

Not trusted so may as well leave.

My opinion is that Lage is right. It was total desperation thinking this lad could feature and shows how bad a position we're in. Again, nothing against Ronan who seems a top lad and I wish him the best.

He would have featured today if Bruno thought he was ready or good enough. Same with Cundle.

League One maybe pushing Championship for me. A solid player, but let’s be real. Standing out in the SPL means very little. Realistically probably the same for Cundle, although perhaps too early to say without letting him go out on loan.

Chem Campbell I do think can play at this level, but he needs a loan for the experience. If Corbeanu can get a Championship loan, I’d like to think he could as well. That can’t happen without us bringing in players though.

Lage is in a Catch-22 situation. If he plays Ronan, who undoubtedly deserves a chance, the powers that be may think we don’t need midfield strengthening.

Well that would be a stupid game for Lage to play.

If we strengthen, as we should, the midfield then Ronan is less likely to get that chance which you rightly say that he deserves. Either give him game time or let him go to a club that will.
