We'd just been promoted and he played over 30 league games in the process - I never begrudged him the move (Berner was a class above, regardless) but we weren't a complete basket case when he left us, he was very much part of an upwardly mobile club.

Ok- we’d been relegated 12 months prior, but he wanted out long before he actually left. Milan in charge, which meant the club was still a shambles behind the scenes, Baggies still a much better proposition career wise and financially for him at the time.

Like I said, didn't begrudge him the move brother - but we were far from the complete circus of pre-Pearson when he jumped ship.

He is neat and tidy, and he should be ahead of Fuchs now.

 

If you could give him Chilwells motor it would make a hell of a difference as he lacks that bit of dynamism a lot of modern full backs have.

 

 

Very well summed up. I'm sure he will be a good player, but I'm not convinced he is yet at the level we now require as a back up

I think considering the likes of Iheanacho and Choudhury are the standard of backup players we currently have that's a tad harsh on the lad

Spot on. Hopefully he develops attacking the space

I have done a complete u turn on this lad. Thought he was a complete liability when he first broke into the team, a bomb scare whenever the ball came near his right foot, but he has developed incredibly quickly and now looks composed and assured. I think he will go on to get a lot of assists for us.

Probably seen him enough times to form some sort of an informed opinion and I think he’s certainly got potential. I’d still prefer a Justin and Castagne full back pairing as my optimum go to at this moment in time though.

I think so too but Thomas has definitely shown potential and looks a very good prospect. I can't imagine he was supposed to be anywhere near the first team but is doing well considering he's been thrown in at the deep end.
