This thread is going to give Thomas a brain aneurysm.

Always rated him, his quality on the ball is great, gets stuck in and will get better, that said, the boo boys are already giving him the treatment, what is it with our fans and local homegrown players, why are they singled out for more abuse that others.

If he played for one of the "Sky top 6" he would have quite a few England caps by now

Very enjoyable player to watch. When heís having an off day it can be frustrating because he can be dominated, but thatís the middle of the pitch in the prem.

A team thatís missing forward motion and vertical passing as much as we have been this year really canít afford to leave him out.

I'd have him in the team all the time because he tries and shows a bit of fight. He can be frustrating when things he tries don't work but at least he has a go, when others shy away.

My issue with him is when he gives the ball away trying simple things
Ive never had any issue with a player trying to make things happen
He was always gonna have an issue with form, he is a young lad
Like I said a couple of games ago, even when he isn't at his best I wouldn't take him off as we look far better with him on the pitch than without him
Simply simply lovely

He's more intelligent than most players at his age. When he plays with Rooney and Rooney drops deep to get the ball Schneiderlin would just stand still and let Rooney try and manipulate the ball whereas I notice Davies immediately decides to vacate that area and offer another body ahead of the ball to give us options and vice versa when Rooney bombs on he slots in. If he cost £30m he'd be in the team every week.

He doesn't help himself by doing the simple things poorly at times but he's a kid and he'll learn.

I've been harsh on him in the past to be honest.

While not everything he tries comes off he links that midfield together when he plays, especially when it's with Gana and Rooney.

He actually gets beyond the striker from deep as well which gives us so much more in attack.

You can't put a price on football intelligence like that.

Tom Davies makes the whole greater than the sum of it's parts. Lot's of managers seem to ignore this.

We saw the same when Baines, Pienaar and Osman all played in the same team. All intelligent, technical footballers who knew each other's games inside out. When they played together they were 2 or 3 steps ahead of the opposition and ran rings around them but when they never matched that level when the played with other equal and better quality players

But we have a midfielder in Schneiderlin who cost 24 million quid with more experience.

I'd rather be frustrated by Davies trying to pull something progressive off than be frustrated by Schneiderlin being a shit bag.

With the amount of shithouses he's had to play alongside it's a wonder he's progressed as far as he has..How shniderlin would ever be on a team sheet while Tom Davies is fit is a total fuckin mystery.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

I'm a big fan of Davies, especially in a midfield 3. He's just suffered from being in a very poor team this season.

I'm not worried about his development stunting, because it's good for young players to take a step back and watch sometimes. But yeah we're a better team with him in it.
