    I loved watching O’Brien. Exciting player who made things happen. Created chances and scored goals.

    JOB was good here but I don't feel like we need him badly

    We have Jones Allasani bayliss andreu Thomas Shipley for winger and amc roles.

    He's scored 3 goals since he left us and didn't score in 29 appearances last season. I think we saw the best of him and that was only in bursts. He always worked hard but had no positional sense and often caused us more problems than he solved.

    Shame he thought he was the gaffer though , he was a bit moody and hung on too tight for my liking , he has not done much since his departure so screwed himself over

    If Doyle was in same team he would lay him out no doubt

    All that said a good player with a good heart

    It’s not me who said it. I just find it funny how when someone mentions Maddison or Wilson you say everyone needs to move on as they no longer play us but you constantly want to mention Jordan Clarke and Bigirimana who no longer play for us. Dare I say the former don’t fit into your agenda?

    Your hypocrisy is astounding. You don’t want to move on as proven by your posts about Clarke and Bigirimana what you actually mean is you want people to move on from those performing well in the Premier League as this doesn’t fit your close the academy agenda

    Most people see it, it’s not just me. Even on a thread nothing about Bigirimana you mention him, why do you follow his career after us if you hated him when he was here?

    Another of the ‘he runs around a lot & gets stuck in’ fans favourites.

    One of the best City players in the last decade-you’re having a laugh.

    He wouldn’t even make the top 50.

    Modern footballers need brains these days and when JOB was at City he was bloody infuriating.

    He might well have scored a few important goals but also was responsible for quite a few against when he was hopelessly out of position due to a complete lack of position.

    Yes I have to agree his positional sense was poor but was always shouting and pointing at others about where they should be.

    It’s a no from me, when he left it was the right time for him to do so

    Coincided with the loss of form that season. Coincidence or a measure of the effect he had on the team? I particular remember the game against Shrewsbury that season where we were 2-0 down at half time. JOB came on as a sub at the start of the half and completely changed the game as we won 3-2.

    He was a good player, on and off, but too much of a disruptive influence in the changing room I think.

    Yes I recall the game tho as since stated was against Peterborough, great come back. I’d say it was more coincidence to why we fell away but obviously the case is there to say he was part of the side that started the season so well.

    Other factors were more influential to why we fell away that year for me.
