    Deserves a thread of his own. Think he's in the best form he's ever been for us IMO.

    Epic performances at the moment. Helping Batth to improve too.

    Tremendous again tonight, really does look top drawer and on this form is capable of playing at a higher level.

    Player of the season by a mile for me
     
  4. Doing well. Thought Danny the pick tonight. Far tighter than the Rotherham game. Lovely goal to get us under way - we need more though.

    No - don't start a panic, he signed an extension last season. Runs out at the end of next season.

    I'm wondering, something has fallen into place mentally for stears. He always had ability, but had. Poor concentration or lack of fight.

    Now he seems to have eradicated that. Interesting what the catalyst has been for that?
    Has he got married, had a kid, clicked with Kenny mentally or just experience ?

    Something has definitely chanfed for the good here.

    Said it in my Fulham verdict and i'll say it again. Stearman is the best CB in the league... at this moment in time!

    He's been pretty solid all season, which is a surprise. I'm glad he's doing well though and deserves his plaudits so far, long may it continue.
     
  14. I would not underestimate the performances of Price and Edwards tonight in terms of keeping that clean sheet. Dave was especially good in a Dave type way.

    From what I've seen of him he seems like a man possessed this season. He shouts and bawls and shows his displeasure when players $$$$ up - it seems to me he badly wants to be back in the Prem and is determined to see this happen. We really do need his leadership at the back.

    I think Edwards was instrumental in the improvement in our attacking by actually coming out of defence with the ball and using it. Up until recently it's almost as though every one of the back four, Price and McDonald have had to tap it between each other before going forward.

    Stearman was superb tonight and has been all season. Really does deserve player of the season....would be captain for me.

    I like him also for the fact that he has a different, weird, hairstyle every season.

    As I mentioned a few weeks ago in another thread, it's because he's playing at centre back. He's always been a decent centre back.

    Prior to KJ, Stearman played at right back more often than centre back - and he's woeful at right back.

    He's always been a very good centre-half at this level.

    I think we forget just how young he was when we first went up to the Premier League. Like most defenders, his reading of the game and performance levels improve with experience.

    Agree with those who say he is our Player of the Year so far. Has been consistently excellent since Christmas.
     
  22. I really hope he wins POTS. Great thing about Wolves fans - they can make your life hell and moan like b****** but show improved form and quality over sustained period, and they will also single you out, even if for example the media haven't noticed. That's a knowledgable football crowd

    At 27 he still has his best years ahead of him.

    As with most central defenders, improved with age. I think people forget that he was only 22 when we last win the Championship.

    On the London radio station the commentator was gob smacked he was only 27. Thought he was a lot older until Froggatt put him right.

    There always has been a good player in Stearman. It just seemed to take longer than expected before he matured from a promising but prone to an odd mistake defender (typical for young lads) into the top defender he is now. There were times when I doubted he would ever make it.

    Credit to him. With the level of performances he delivers now and his Wolverhampton roots he well deserves to be a folk hero.

    Delighted for him. He has taken a lot of stick from people on here and at times I have felt I was one of the few standing up for him. A real lion for us this season and deserves PoS.

    Echo what many have said thought hes been exceptional for us for pretty much two season now.

    Could do with a good song for him.

    Stearman certainly seems to have found some consistency which in the past was his Achilles heel. Always been a good defender but would too often let himself, and team, down due to silly mistakes. Whilst all players no matter how good make them his were a bit too frequent.

    Now he seems more assured and long may it last.

    He's effectively the leader of the defence and seems to thrive. Outstanding yet again yesterday.

    Stears has 8 bookings, if he gets 2 more before the 2nd Sunday in April (12th) he will get a ban, so please Richard be a good boy for the next 9 games.

    Definitely one of Mick's better signings. Remember watching him play for England U21's and thinking he'd be a top player one day. Never quite lived up to that early promise but maybe now he's ready to live up to that early potential.
