I feel Chapman is just another example of a young player having a bloated opinion of himself, after having had too much in terms of financial rewards too young and having achieved nothing.

But with the correct coaching do you think he can improve? I think the club might be at the financial stage of having to make the best of what we have got.

Bradley Dack was a "naughty boy" before we signed him, still likes to enjoy his lifestyle, yet Mowbray has managed him excellently.

The difference is Dack works his arse off every game and leaves it all out on the pitch. Those that have watch U23s say that Chapman doesn't.

TBH it doesn't look to me like he's terribly unfit, again nowhere near as "solid" as Dacky, just that awful beard and a receding hairline makes his head look like blummin Bluto's.

Thought that too

Sure it will have been mentioned on here before, but there's a great interview with Mark Noble where he was asked about the best player he ever came up against & he waxed lyrical about Tugay.

I think he said that Scholes/Lampard/Gerrard were the best, but when he played against Rovers as a young player he took one look at Tugay and thought he could dominate this ageing 40-a-day smoker. In the end Tugay had him on a string for 45 minutes then he was dragged off at half time.

Without a doubt he could improve, the lad's clearly got talent. I also agree with your final comment, I feel it's inevitable.

An inherent problem in football driven as usual by greedy players and agents but in this case i can't think for the life of me just why he should've got a lucrative deal here, if indeed he did.

Maybe he got a good pay off from Boro or something or a hefty signing on fee here but for an injured player one so young with the dreaded hamstring issues he wasn't exactly over flowing with big offers. Something not right about this one either by the looks of it although personally i think if he'd had a few sniffs of action earlier on he might have toed the line better.

Why does he suddenly have so much disrespect for the club and manager after making such a big deal to get here again, or was it all just about getting another contract ?

Like i said before though TM clearly had his sights on Gallagher & BB for the right hand side berth with Samuel always coming into the equation once fit again and then there's captain fantastic. Chapman has been on a hiding to nothing here anyway, maybe that's the root cause of his attitude.

As opposed to the ultimate professional Jason Lowe?

Talent brings egos. You need a manager to deal and get the best out of those egos. We have Mowbray who’s got zero ability to manage different personalities hence he’s moulded us into what he wants.

Mowbray has got more out of Bradley Dack than anyone else has ever managed. Which manager has ever got much out of Chapman ?

That character reference in court certainly has gone a long way.

Eastham on bench. Sub keeper. 

Bell and Graham replace Downing and Maglorie on bench

IMO, another lost opportunity.

Would like to have seen Davenport and Vale start.  Vale looks like he has REAL potential and star quality - why hold him back!?!?

Downing not even on the bench.

Is that a signal that he's off then?

Probably, but I really hope not. Even if we're reducing the budget next season, Downing's wages might be well spent for his effect on the youngsters.

I can't decide if that sounds like the sort of thing which TM would do or not. Anyway, I hope you're right!

got to wonder why walton is playing,for someone who`s supposedly on his way back to brighton he`s kept his place,though myself im`e not sure he will,it would be no surprise if we ended up with him for another season,tony could`nt find another keeper if one landed on him and talking brighton into another loan is the easy way out,i for one will not be happy if the above happens,to me he`s bloody useless and won`t improve with the master coach ben benson guiding him

Fair, but I think it's looking pretty likely that a long list of players at the start of their career are going to be asked to play significant roles for us next year, not all of them in Downing's position. There'll be times when they'll need the experienced heads with them, especially when we're losing others from the squad, and some of the others aren't going to be worth their place in the team.

Well we’ve not done a Huddersfield. Personally I’d like to have seen more of the kids start considering the shift they put in last weekend. Oh and I’d rather play a mannequin found at the tip than Walton but hey ho.

Who is Eastham? I thought it was between Hilton and Fisher.

Well it's pretty much exactly the team I expected to see. But personally I'd have liked to see Hilton given a go so we can see whether we might only need one keeper next season, and certainly Davenport should have been included from the start. Then I'd have brought Vale on somewhere around the 60 minute mark.
