    Default big wes morgan,is he a winger in disguise?

    Just got back from the match and would like to say Wes morgan is thoroughly deserved man of the match and is now receiving the plaudits that have been long overdue.His run down the right wing where he skinned 3 of there players was inspiring,watch your back Anderson youve got competiton!!!!

    Joking aside, Iv always thought hed make a good make-shift Midfielder/Striker/Winger...

    The amount of times during a season that we do the ironic cheers when he does his little runs will tell you how good he is on the ball. He beat five players today. Thats more than any other player on the pitch, with the exception of McGugan.

    In general, this season, he has been our best player. The amount of times he is MOTM is unbeleivable. His blocking and last minute tackles are incredible too.

    What the hell is everyone on?

    Morgan gets the ironic cheers because his ball control is terrible. He's a rock solid centre back, anyone who thinks he can play elsewhere is mental.

    What? its that terrible, but no opposing player can get the ball off him?

    Can't be that bad can it?

    Exactly the point I was making. Coupled with his size, he's really hard to get off of the ball. His passing is poor, to be honest though.

    Everyone has a good laugh when he tries to do skill!
    or has a pop from 30 yards
    but he is playing really well.

    Yeah he's a big bloody lump thats hard to get the ball off, but possession doesn't win you games. He has zero technique - limted passing, no dribbling skills, no crossing ability, no shooting ability etc.
    The only time he should even consider moving forward is if we're 1-0 down with 3 minutes to go and we're just lumping it forward for him to flick on.

    Not criticising him by the way, he's a solid centre back.

    He may not be the most naturally gifted player but that is why he should be applauded all the more, he has really worked hard to be a 1st team regular.

    I think Wes's size and awkward movement style actually disguise his talent, for a centre back he has exceptional close skills, this is evident only when he drives forward, alongside Breckin, Wes thoroughly deserved his Mom award, but must have been run very close by several players.

    I thought playing Perch just in front of the back four today, allowed him to really impact on the game in such a positive way for Forest, an unpopular underrated role but sooooo important.

    Whenever I see him go forward I can't help thinking he reminds me of Tommy Gaynor & that ain't a bad thing.

    One things for sure, he's turning into one of the best defenders in this league

    By far our best player this season, never let us down since his slip up against Yeovil in the play offs.

    Spot on ! When he is showing his skillz, because he's such a lump, he almost looks clumsy ! I think that's why he skins so many players, they expect him to slip up, whereas he dances his way through !

    Wes has been great recently, and is a very good centre half, he's come on leaps and bounds in the past year and a half.

    But he certainly isn't the most graceful on the ball! Compared to someone like McGugan, his technique is in a different league.

    Of course it doesn't really matter as he is a centre half who can head it, kick it, get his body in front of the ball, and has adequate ability on the ball. He's good at his job.

    So does my Grandma.


    As for Morgan's elite technique, I think he's up there with the likes of Deco, Fabregas, Xavi, Jason Lee, etc.

    That does annoy me, Morgan was harshly picked out when the rest of the fucking team let us down just as badly.

    Yes I know, I meant his backpass which is the only mistake he's made.

    Plymouth at home...the last time?!!

    But yeh, his consistency isn't bad at all. Not these days anyway, he's maturing with every season.

    Kelvin Wilson should take note, Wes was formidable today and did not moan or whinge at his teamates/the ref once, a real professional in an era of tossers.
