Anya - not sure what to make of this...

I agree if it was about out and out talent but if that was the case I don't think Lawrence would be playing for us at all .... I find watching him play so frustrating. He squares up a full back and then... Nothing...

I think too many people judge Lawrence on this perception that he 'bottles it' against defenders - We've been a possession based football team for the last year - Oddly under Rowett he seemed to get criticised for losing the ball too often (because Rowett was all about hitting people hard and quick with the front 3)

Last season statistically Lawrence scored the 5th most goals, 3rd highest shots per game (so he is trying stuff), 4th highest key passes per game, second highest dribbles per game and had the highest 'bad control per game' (indicates players who get themselves into better positions/choose positions where they're taking the ball under more pressure - Mount, Marriott and Wilson also over 2 per game)

Running the channel for no reason whatsoever is what Camara did - And Anya can do - Getting into positions to cause the opposition damage in the middle of the pitch and creating chances for those around you is what Lawrence does

What basis do you make this decision on? A garbage player would not have achieved what he did with Watford.... he hasn’t brought anything to Derby but not exactly had the opportunity... a few weeks after being signed by a manager they left. Was frozen out by everyone who followed.

Yep becasue they also thought he was garbage, or are all those managers wrong aswell? lol

I mean this is clearly baalocks. Made up by people when they don't know what else it could be. The Anya one was floating around under Rowett and then he made an appearance.

Thorne will cost £12500 per match for the next 43 matches.

No idea about Anya and cannot find any credible source stating any add ons for his transfer.

I agree there's an element of retention to it and him not been given the free reign to beat his full back but I also think if he had the confidence he'd ignore all managers and go for it regardless of tactics knowing he could still retain the ball with his ability. 

I don't think he attempts it less than other players as such I just don't think he does for his ability level. The number of times at pp I've seen him isolate his full back and been willing him to have a run at him and he doesn't is frustrating to say the least
