Time to give marriapa a go. He's better at going forward anyway.
Ps. Good goal Joel.

Problematically the only time he has looked PL quality was under Pulis. Pulis' scheme is very full back friendly because of the extreme amount of assistance he makes his wingers give his full backs. It allows his full backs and the entire back 4 play very narrow which essentially makes the full backs into outside center backs. They have protection on either side. Ward played very well under this scheme.

Outside of those very good 6 months, he has looked overwhelmed and a shadow of his former self. On the ball he is the weakest member of the starting xi outside of Delaney. Defending wise he gets beat for speed very often and positionally he is distinctly average.

I was hoping that last season was an aberration that could be explained due to injury, but it is becoming increasingly clear that is not the case. He has had a very long leash with the fans, and rightly so because of his immense prior contributions to the club including getting us promoted. But now he is the weak spot in our team and I don't believe we have a capable replacement on the bench if we aspire to be top 8. It is a position that may need to be addressed in January with Ward becoming a great utility defender.

Look pretty sharp coming forward and defended brilliantly when Arsenal broke and left him 2v1. Had some bad moments, granted, but dropping him?

Lol.

Arsenal rotate RB's and use them for different games, why can't we?
Joel has had a free run and his form has been getting worse over the last 6 games or so.
AM played well with Jamaica and no reason why he can't have a game.

Is this thread a bad joke?

He has been one of the most consistent performers and a loyal servant to the club.

People were up in arms at the thought of him leaving for Liverpool last season I seem to remember.

He scored a cracking goal today as well, why doesn't everyone just get behind him!!??

Bad game, nothing more go it. He's a really good player and no point in searching for any issues that aren't there !

He looked very rusty and leaden footed at times last week as well - and was patchy at times last season too.

Hopefully can get back to his best soon. Shame for him to have a poor game today when he got such a good goal.

Isn't Wardy in with God? I wouldn't go upsetting the big guy by dropping him. Especially after such a heavenly goal.

Yep, well said.
Same goes for jedinak really.

He made some sloppy mistakes and cost us both goals. I feel both fullbacks are being told to get forward and it seems whoever plays behind Puncheon struggles.

Ward lacks match fitness imo. Still our best right back. As for people asking for jedinak to play, did you actually see the game? Cabaye and mcarthur were solid. Probably the best midfield combo in years. Both solid and cabaye can actually tackle without giving away silly free kicks

maybe, but I see no difference from last season in terms of sloppy mistakes.

Maybe he had made a few mistakes but that is down to being match fit imo. Delaney has a mistake in him every game but people seem to be happy to start him
