I agree and it has been a mystery to me why so few seem to see it. In my view only O'Hare has played as well consistently.

And yet most wanted Giles ahead of him!
It comes down to whether you see wingback as primarily an attacking or defensive position. Defensively he’s great, but he’s almost as poor going forwards as Giles is defensively.

You need a Dabo who is a balance of both, two half left wing backs does not a whole left wing back make.

It comes down to some fans being bitter he is a loanee and not our player anymore. Any bullshit about wingbacks and passing is just outright lying.

He's not perfect. Same applies to O'Hare. But both have been consistently good all season.

His pass completion rate is 59% .
42% in the oppositions half. Dabo’s is 60% for comparison. Long pass: 24% to Dabo’s 41.5%.

It’s not just that either, he so often misses the forward pass and checks back to the defence. His crossing is poor.

That said, he’s excellent in the air and in the tackle. He’ll make an excellent left back, but he’s not a wing back and we need better quality on the ball in a key position, same at CB.

I'm not slating him , I'm just pointing out that he's not been consistently good .

He has been over the last 4 or 5 weeks

His xg is better than dabos. A good thing for a wing back no?
Expected goals?

Don't know I'm mostly in agreement with shmmeee about him , apart from I see him as rash defensively at times .

Probably an age thing

His passing is definitely sloppy at times too .

Hes Been good lately though

Not sure hes ever going to be top tier , but he's a decent enough player

A good point lol

I would say many players have had a rest this season to recharge and Sam hasn't. To only have had a handful of bad games in a 46 game season shows just how brilliant he has been.

McCallum is inconsistent. He was collosal in the 3 games that got us safety. Was very good when he first came back, but he had an 8 game period where his form fell off a cliff. He is young and will get better, not sure Norwich will work out for him mind...

It will be interesting to see what Norwich do with him now.
He wasnt thought experienced enough for them in the championship, so I cant see them wanting him in the premier league.
Will they loan him out again, or look to off load him?
And do they still owe us money on the deal, or did we write that off with the loan arrangement? And could we afford to re sign him?

His progression is excellent. Season on season.

God help us if people on here believe McCallum is the answer because he's had a few good games recently (the entire team has played well recently). Norwich farmed him out to a fellow Championship club ffs. They obviously don't care for him/don't rate him.

What does that even mean?

The best team in the league loaned a player out to one of the weaker teams in the league, and that's supposed to be an insult to the player?

Generally clubs don't loan out promising young players to a competitor in the same league if they thought he would be anything but a detriment - which he has been. If he was good enough he would have been in their squad.

We aren't a competitor to Norwich. Totally opposite ends of the league. McCallum obviously couldn't play against Norwich so couldn't contribute to taking points off them.

He could, however, take points off Norwich's rivals thus improving their standing - which he did.

😂 I'm sure Norwich fans are thrilled about those points we took off Blackburn away a couple of months back.

If he's progressing season on season and is such a good player, surely he'll play in the Premier League next season? Fact is he won't, and will never, barring an injury crisis at Norwich. Thanks for a good few games Sam, but head back to League Two and find your level mate.

What about the points we took off Watford, Brentford, Swansea?

League Two? Fuck me. You're even more clueless than I realised.
