Chambers....... 19:18 - Aug 18 with 1523 viewsBanburyBlue

I love his heart and leadership but he looks to me out of place, as HFB commented our old players who played under MM might struggle to adapt and he again today looked uncomfortable trying to play out with the ball, it does not suit his style, in reality he's just better at giving it a hoof.

Great game today, it was actually enjoyable to watch except for the cheating, Grealish is a great player but what a diver!! disgrace

I think he's in a middle of a relative nightmare at the moment - asked to change his playing style whilst marshalling two players new to this level through a match and having to do it from the 'wrong' side.

I do have doubts whether he can adapt to Hurst's style but he doesn't really have anyone to lean on and give him support across the backline at the moment.

Poll: See if the forum is as united as it seems - should Hurst leave the club now?

I feel for Chambers, but thats the trouble Tommy Smith had when Berra came in only Smith had to play on the wrong side, people on here slagged him off, but in my opinion was better than Berra no shirt pulling. Chambers needs to be in the team at the moment but so does Knudsen as they add the experience needed. Chambers will probably be rested if we bring another C/B in, but he should not be allowed to leave as he is needed to bridge the gap between players and management. I can see Knudsen taking over as skipper long term if he remains here.

Knudsen? Never a captain.
I’ll admit he had a good game today, but at Exeter, he was highly poor..

I wouldn't be suprised if Hurst has Nolan in his plans for successor for the armband.

Chambers is the best centre back at the club.
Can’t see him getting dropped.

I thought he had a great game as did the mates I was sat with. He led the team well, was vocal and did what was asked. They scored a cracker and apart from that we limited them which was down to a great team performance with him at the heart of it. Bizarre how we all see things differently but that's why we love football

Love Chambo. Should be allowed to play in his best position. Heart and soul

To be fair I thought he played 2 or 3 good balls into space behind their defence, for Harrison/Edwards rather than just aimless hoofs towards a target man

Interesting you should say that as I'd argue every attack Villa instigated in the second half was self-inflicted by ourselves, either through a bad clearance, poor bass, misjudging a header, and more often than not it was either Knudsen or Chambers who was making a blunder out of those in the backline. We got slightly fortunate today that they couldn't take advantage of these blunders and maybe we deserved that considering we were robbed at Rotherham and had had to suffer one of the worst ever refereeing performances at Portman Road this afternoon.

This doesn't detract from the way we fought, we challenged, we played - particularly after going down to ten men - but there are still issues to work on and, to be fair, it'd be staggering if there wasn't.

I don't always rate Chambers highly but he was brilliant today. As were the majority of the team

My hobbies include being quiet during trips, clapping with songs, and diabetes.

Actually the person who gave away the ball most to allow Villa to attack was probably Bart. Far too many kicks were misplaced or went straight through to their keeper

That is true and that did bug me; the long balls to the flanks were clearly not working so why did we keep trying it???

It was the same at Exeter. It's clearly what they've been told to do, and equally clearly it's taking time for them to get it right. The danger with all this is that even when they get it right, other teams will have sussed it.

Villa did make it difficult for him to pass the ball to the central defenders, as they did close down very quickly. If we are going to send them long to Harrison, we need to be more accurate about it and then have people better placed to pick up the flick ons. work to do on that

Bobby Robson - thank you
