    It's barm so STFU.
    Other players filling in as a DM against some lesser teams in the PL or domestic Cups is one thing but filling in against the likes of Barca or PSG is a different matter entirely. They are likely to see more of the ball than our usual opponents which will mean more pressure on the DM position - even in the two matches against Napoli we saw less of the ball than we're accustomed to.

    Like Mccity said, I appreciate the job he does, I just don't rate himas unreplaceably as I do Silva, Debryune or Ederson.

    He does his job well. But against Barca or PSG I'd still be extremely confident with a midfield 3 of Silva/Gundogan as the 8's and Debryune at DM.

    The truth is we are not guaranteed to beat these teams anyway, so Dihno's absence or presence isn't a decider.

    He was there at Liverpool, and we were overun. So it can happen regardless of who plays.

    Ferny is one of the best all rounders in the team, tactically he is astute and don't underestimate his leadership qualities (that can't be taught).

    Excellent performance from him. Hope that booking doesn’t cost him though!

    Great praise from Lampard just now and deservedly so.

    He's been amazing this season I think its helped not having Yaya in the team who slowed things down massively.

    I think I said it would be that case of Yaya was dropped last year and took the abuse from the usual suspects on BM.

    Happy for Ferna.

    I think his booking V Basel will come back to haunt us

    does the booking accumulation go until the end of the season, or is there a cut-off point? Injury will keep him out a few games then I think one more card until a 2-match ban?
