    I don't think that's distinctly average - I bet Marriott and Waggers are on about 1 in 3 and they're strikers - Lawrence has primarily played for us as a winger (and all this talk about him being a 10 I think is nonsense, he's an inside forward, RHS front 3 so he can cut in from the wing, 10 is too far forward and we want him to carry the ball from midfield)
    I think too many people are getting bogged down on his transfer fee and that Rowett (thanks Gary) lauded him as the Ince replacement - We know that generally speaking what Rowett did was sell our better players and generally replace them with less good alternatives
    However I also think there's a bigger picture thing here - When Lawrence plays really well he's unplayable - Games like Huddersfield at the start of the season they couldn't touch him first half and then he worked himself into the ground second - Pretty much no players can have those kind of games every week - In fact having 1 every 10 games is pretty good - The rest of the time Lawrence is a solid 6/10 player or maybe some games a 7/10 - On Saturday he was a solid 7, worked hard, covered his man, tracked back, supported Lowe, provided an assist - It wasn't his greatest game but it was fine (as were the perfomance levels of most of our players, maybe Clarke bagged himself an 8/10)
    Compare that to someone like Bogle - He's a 7/10 most games but sometimes (Forest) a 5/10 and sometimes an 8/10 - Always got a potential mistake in him and plenty of games gets trapped back in his own half by a winger on form - I'd say his outstanding games are as rare as Lawrence's but his 7/10 games are more frequent
    I think the problem is - People were convinced by Rowett that Lawrence is 'the answer' to losing Ince and Hughes - He isn't - He's a perfectly decent championship player but he's not a replacement for those guys - In a squad of other decent players he does well (looked better with Wilson and Mount) and when he starts playing more with Rooney we'll see more of him
    And on top of that - The lad is obviously a confidence player - He scores and BAM! there's a different Lawrence on the pitch - Why would any of our fans think it's a good idea to berate a player who so obviously works on confidence? Secondary point, anyone who thinks he's arrogant I think misses the point - He's obviously got very little self-confidence as shown by how much he changes after a goal - I think he fronts it out most of the time cos he thinks he should

    If he felt someone was out of line I have no issue with him letting them know.
    It is a fact, at least where I sit, he is treated differently to other players. He misplaced a pretty adventurous pass at one point on Saturday, there was way more audible groans than if it were someone else, and someone near me (East Stand) shouted “Christ, you can’t wait to get rid of it can you Lawrence.” It’s perverse and counter productive. If Lawrence had shouted back that that bloke was a Bamford I’d have probably given him a round of applause

    I hate to single out players for criticism (and there are a few players at this club who I do want to see anywhere near the pitch, but I don't post those thoughts on here), but the performance and results changed when Lawrence was banned. The first game he was banned for was Charlton and we won. Yes I know he's back in the team, but I think the performances and results with Lawrence sidelined have improved confidence.

    It’s because Radio Derby spend 15 minutes after the match slaughtering him in particular once again. It perpetuates the anti-Lawrence vitriol. Seriously, duck Craig Ramage.
