Jacob Butterfield - Joined Bradford City on loan

Recommended Posts

Glad he’s gone. Never a good fit here. He has talent no question but always struggled in a 4-3-3 and then couldn’t fit him in a 4-2-3-1. Think he could’ve been a useful 10 but was never going to get that gig over Vyds! 

Good feet, skilful, good passing range but often took too many touches and considering his passing ability played with his head down too often for me. Bradford is his home town club, he will be the main man, the playmaker like he was at Barnsley and Hudds (similar sized clubs to Bradford) so reckon he will thrive.

Can’t his harshest critics on here not give him even just the slightest praise for taking the opportunity to re-boot his career! Throughout the window he was trashed as a freeloader and for lacking any self-pride or ambition, happy to sit it out, scratching his bolleaux at Derby’s expense. And despite the evidence of the failed Hull move in the summer and now an obvious move to a club and league lower than his obvious ability, he’s still a complete womble.....apparently! Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t. Haters are always gonna hate, but sometimes you do sound like a bunch of tw@ts!

Fully agree Anya gets hardly any stick or ledley and yet they are doing that exact thing sitting here on money and holding up us getting anyone in

I had a go at that group of nobs on the day. And I occassionally bump into a few of them at games. In fact one puts out a flag in the SW lower. Still happily knock them out if they spoke to me again.

I remember purposefully over applauding and thinking well done everytime he did anything! And many others did too

All the best in your future career, Jacob. You are a talented player and deserve to play regular football. Not your fault that we gave you a lucrative contract. 😎

This.

Not my favourite but deserves a break and some credit for stepping down a level to play, if he proves himself to be every bit as valuable to them as he was at Huddersfield, his career could quickly be back on track.

Why give Ledley stick? He is recovering from hip surgery.

The issue I think with Butterfield is that he's the type of player who needs ton of space and a couple of seconds to produce the killer pass / shot. Doesn't work with the quick interchange of passes we're currently playing.

Sounds like Huddlestone!

I haven't given him the grief other people have mentioned above...but let's be honest, he has been a terrible signing. 

Never really saw what he brought to us. Very safe passing player, no turn of pace, couldn't tackle or head, rarely shot, didn't dictate play....sorry won't be missed a jot by me. I don't necessarily dislike him or feel the need to criticise his character..but let's not over-compensate just because some got obnoxious about him. As a signing he is one of the worst I can recall. 

Not as bad as Nick Blackman..but not far off. Glad he's off the books. Good luck and all that but I won't be looking out for him. Best forgotten, move on.
