Bannan Looking For Help

Bannan Looking For Help

Barry Bannan has said he believes he can only benefit from working with both Gordon Cowans and now Paul Lambert, given the careers they had in midfield.

Speaking to the Official Site Bannan said the influence they could have on him together could only ever be a benefit:

'There's the gaffer and Sid Cowans who have won the European Cup so for a midfielder like me I'm only going to learn from these people.'

I certainly hope he does, there's plenty Bannan can tweak and improve on, and he remains a marmite player for most fans, you either seem to love or hate him for what he tries to do on the pitch, but if he can improve size really won't be an issue because he's never been afraid to get in a tussle and come out as the winner despite his diminutive size.

Bannan also talked briefly about the good feeling around the club since Lambert joined, and he says the team are determined to carry that through the whole season:

'It was doom and gloom last season, but even now, and we've not kicked a ball competitively yet, there's a big lift already. He definitely sounds like he's in a hurry to sort out the club with the way he has been talking, so it's up to us players and show him what we're all about.'

Be great if he was now fully focussed, if anyone can make a midfielder of him, Sid can. Hopefully he can convince Bannan that not every pass has to be a 'Hollywood' pass to start with. Would be superb if they call come out fighting this season.

Wish Bannan would keep his trap shut and just concentrate on turning himself into a proper footballer. I may be miles wide of the mark but from what i've seen on T.V etc he seems to have an attitude problem. Add Ireland, Zog, Dunne, Collins and Warnock into the bad attitude mix and you can see why we've failed the past 2 seasons.

Hope not son of cher... I'd love all of them to prove themselves, (as most of us would I am sure) and don't think we can judge any of them on last season? He's not really started yet We're Not Fickle? I have my doubts about him but would like to see them proved wrong for sure. He has to sort himself off as well as on the field as do a few others.

biggest thing bannan can learn is that he's in a privilleged position and he needs to behave like a pro not a prat.

I don't love Bannan, but I certainly don't hate hm. I've said a number of times, I feel his physical stature holds him back. I don't think he has the clout to really make it in the Premiership. He lacks consistency for me. The odd good game is not enough and I feel due to his size, he is too easiy knocked off the ball.

Won't make it in the Prem, regardless of attitude, unfortunately for him. Hugely over-optimistic when it comes to passing. Bent taps in from 6 yards, Bannan long passes. Hopefully the new crop will have more than 1 talent each.

Fear is right - he seems a Marmite love him or hate him player. But for those in the critical camp, surely it is clean sheet time. Let's wipe the slate clean, and see how he goes under a new regime. Give all the youth a chance, before firing any more of previous conclusions under McCleish. The points made by 444 have been made endlessly, and the new broom deserves time to sweep!
