A very enjoyable celebration of a famous win. James Garner is indeed a key player in a balanced team. The comparison with Gareth Barry is well made.

It would be madness to give Yerry Mina another contract. Even with a 50% reduction in his salary and a pay as you play bonus element we cannot afford him.

Mina is a great player and awesome character with presence, even when not on the pitch. He provides presence that makes it more disappointing that we haven't got more out of him.

It is not very often that we've been 3 - 0 up and I've been nervous. I was.

Onana; give him time. 21 years old and developing. He is not a playmaker. He is a disrupter. Gueye can mentor him.

Good comments on Gibson. Always always looking to play the forward pass. Onto Garner. Always looking for the forward pass. Dare I say it, a Paul Bracewell in the making?

McNeil and his delivery. Give him something to hit and he will deliver.

I thought that Mina was our MoTM Monday. His work rate, the way he encouraged the others, the way he interacted with the fans and his ability to keep breaking up the Brighton attacks and getting the ball away was amazing. He allowed Tarks and others to play brilliantly knowing they could rely on him. We must not even think of getting rid of him surely. Mina and Pickford are our only International class players although I see Garner as perhaps a real hope, what a lovely tidy game he had. Was Mina the reason why just ahead of him Gueye had his best game in months. What does it say if we sell great players. Who would we get on eth market as good as Mina fo below £50MM. Maybe we just need to look after him?

When fit Yerry Mina is our best centre back. The words ‘when fit’ are a heavy caveat in his case. He has rarely been able to put a run of games together over the last two seasons. As he will be 29 in September it is difficult to see how he will be less injury prone. In our financial situation we cannot afford a substantial contract to any player who will inevitably spend as much time on the treatment table as on the pitch.

Mina said he would die for our club, so I’d offer him twenty five grand a week on a pay as you play contract, just to see if he was serious!
