Fantastic performance - must start from now on. But we all know he won’t. Hodgson loves grafters over talent. How Meyer can’t get into a turgid midfield of Luka, McArthur and Schlupp says it all.

Yep, quick progressive passing too that turns defenders round and we get to the goal line to cross.

Zaha must love it when Meyer comes on

Can we start home games in this fashion for a change, fed up with visiting teams starting like they are at home.

Meyer looked good when he came on, but there's some serious re-writing of what happened on Saturday going on.

We created chance after chance in the second half before we finally equalised. Wilf was causing them all sorts of problems. And Max came on after we equalised.

The issue with Meyer is that you can never be sure what you'll get from him (we've had a number of similar examples over the last 6 years or so - Bannan for one). He was good v Man City, then nothing special against Cardiff. Then there was uproar that he wasn't selected v Wolves (despite us winning), yet he (along with many others) failed to shine against a League 2 side with 10 players.

He did well when he came on, on Saturday but as Stevek alludes to, his influence on the game is being exaggerated.

It's not helped by the fact that no-one really seems sure what his best position is; a friend of mine who watches a lot of Bundersliga reckons he was at his best for Schalke when breaking up play in a deeper position, but many on here seem to want him to be some sort of creative genius, which he doesn't seem to do with any consistency.

I agree to an extent, he needs to find more consistency, but what he does do is rarely lose the ball cheaply. What he does do is keep possession and link defence and attack. So even if he isn't creating chance after chance, he's still one of those players who can help take the pressure off the defence by holding the ball for us.

A lot of his more forward thinking play breaks down dependent on who the recipient of the ball is. He has very good vision, is very good and receiving the ball in tight areas, and also loves to play the ball to feet in tight areas. So if it's Zaha then they can play quick, incisive flowing football. If it's to Macca or Schlupp), the move invariably breaks down or slows down.

1/3 of all our chances were created in the 11 minutes he played.

Our best chances were created and missed before he came on though with Benteke, Batshuayi and McArthur twice guilty of missing good opportunities.

However when he came on WHU were in defensive mode trying to protect the point with 10 players behind the ball.

West Ham were in defensive mode all second half; initially trying to protect the lead and then to protect the point.

What you will find is that whoever you speak to, in this country or Germany, no one thinks his best position is as a left winger. That answers some of your other points.

Against Man City he played out left but was coming inside, a very defensive role as we spent most of the time without the ball. In terms of winning possession (tackles/interceptions) he did twice as well as Jimmy with only Andros, Aaron and Luka doing better.

Fast forward to the Cardiff game, at home we go from 22% possession to 62%. Out left he is not expected to attack down the line, he has 2 wingers ahead of him and no natural centre forward, he wasn't good but then none of our players were.

Very different to when he came on on Saturday, playing central, 2 attacking full backs, 2 wide players and a CF on the pitch. he came on and saw more of the ball in that time than any other player, was finding runs, moving us forward and the majority opinion seems to be he was the best player on the pitch in that 10 or so minutes.

A lot is made of the Grimsby game but lets not forget they put every player within their defensive 3rd allowing no space and making it very difficult to penetrate. The goal came in a way it was likely to, a set piece and win the header rather than pass through them.

He will start on Saturday, as will Batshuyi most likely, and assuming as they are at home they will not defend for 90 minutes lets see how they do.

I understand reservations on him but i would have him in the midfield 3 of a 4-3-3 in the PL, but not a 4-4-2.

Insulting, ageist rants against our manager really have no place on here.
So you are not allowed to criticise him because of his age? I think the point people are making is that Roy lacks imagination and prefers what he feels is the safe option. He has done a great job in his managerial career but he cannot go on indefinitely at 71 years of age. I am 69 before you call me ageist as well.

We need a bit of creativity in midfield and Max made a big difference when he came on. How Schlupp is ahead of him in the pecking order when we already have two workhorses in Milo and Macca is very strange.

There is no succession planning at Palace that I am aware of and Parrish needs to be looking at this.

This is a acclimatising season for Meyer, we have all seen the talent in small cameo’s, but can he last the full match at a high intensity that is demanded ?
I would certainly use him more at home, where we need to have a more attack minded midfielder.
Good link up with Wilf, they are developing a understanding.

True, and we had to come out at them to get back into the game in the second half. 17 shots i think in the second half, however about half of those were in the last 10 minutes where the game was a draw.

Yes the impetus was on us as the home side and yes we had the momentum, however IMO we finally had the players on the pitch who would improve the starting XI. As was my prediction before the game.

IMO we do not have a better player in CM for when we have the ball and want to go forward and he is not too bad, especially in a 3 when we don't.

Without the ball he does not do enough of what you need when in a 3. He's better in a 3 with Kouyate and Luka there for sure, but without Kouyate he has a lot of defensive responsibilities and he sometimes gets lost doing that, when he does get the ball whilst good with it, not a lot happens with it, it's also the smallest central midfield in world football At this moment, he's as good on the ball as Cabaye, but he's not close to Cabaye when off the ball. When that side gets to grips with Premiership football he will start every game, no doubt.

We have been very stuck with how to get him in the side, but with Wilf and Andros out wide, and a CF at last, he certainly has a lot more ahead of him to do what he's good at.

Our midfield is all water carriers. Need Meyer's ability to pick a defence splitting pass from now on.

I was surprised v Cardiff he had a couple of half chances which spooned over the bar. Or he had got used to our shooting practice drills.

Agreed.

Personally, whilst I would not be against him starting, I think it works well having him as a positive option from the bench - and him coming on fresh against tiring legs probably helps him make an impact (I'd certainly say that was the case against West Ham).
