I think that is a balanced midfield. Crowley can hang on to the ball and bring in others.Something we could not do before he signed. He is a great talent and well worth paying to see. Sideways and backwards players are plentiful ,Crowley is different. I will enjoy his talent while he is here.

I dare say his xA is quite high. I'll see if I can find that out.

Crowley is a class act at this level. end of. he has played just TWO games for us and looks head and shoulders above anybody else we have (apart from CW?). As he gets more and more integrated into the team his contribution will increase accordingly. The fact that he has not directly contributed by actually making that final pass may be true but also is the theory that he makes space for others because he needs to be closely marked.

I just hope that we would be able to keep him for the rest of the season.

If Crowley was to leave in January then we will get at least 13 more games from him. If we could get to 40 points before he goes then we should have enough to see us through.

For those who say Dan has not yet delivered the killer pass. He has and we have missed. As per match report-
"A clever through ball by Dan Crowley sent Joseph one on one with Shrimps keeper Andrésson, but the keeper makes a smart diving save to keep the Robins at bay."

His cross for Vassell’s header was better than anything anyone else on the pitch could do and was on a par with that through ball in the first half to KJ. As well as his two through balls, even the way he stepped clear and teed up Thomas to cross for the first goal was something no one else but Wright ever does.

As someone said on another thread, every player will attract the odd 'boo boy' who criticises for the sake of it. Anyone who didn't see him oozing class in the last two games simply did not want to see it. The idea he didn't produce a final ball is just bonkers - but if people are determined to boo then they will :roll:

I can sort of see both sides, there must be a reason why struggling Birmingham let him go, why Hull chose not to sign him despite playing the second half of last season at this level, why he ended up on trial at unfashionable clubs like ourselves, Donny and Gills. Technically his ball control is amongst the best you will see at this level that is beyond dispute but something must be missing for him to have been so overlooked.

I can't believe this is still running. It seems I'm living rent free in a few people's heads due to one comment, even though I later said I'd forgotten about his three passes through which weren't capitalised on by others and that I thought he is invaluable to the team :lol:. As far as I'm aware, nobody is criticising Crowley for the sake of it and the facts are that if he wants his move to a bigger club then he will need to get his assists and possibly goals numbers up and running. This place is turning into a version of the national press again, where every comment can be taken out of context and jumped on.

It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that he has an attitude problem off the pitch rather than on it which some managers may feel they don’t need. Hopefully Michael doesn’t fall into that caregory. I don’t think he will.
I have no evidence of this it is purely an uneducated comment.

Speculation on attitude problems maked me think about Managers.Sometimes their ego leads them to have to prove a point. Maybe that is why so many are sacked for being clueless. Thankfully we have better.

He was discarded by Karanka at Birmingham because of his defensive shortcomings. He can look a bit lost when the opposition have possession and unsure about his positioning/duties. On top of this, he also probably needs to step up his appetite and enthusiasm for this part of the game.
He also had a tendency to occasionally hang on to the ball too long, looking for the incisive pass when just quickly releasing the ball to a team-mate was the better option.
Both weaknesses could be worked on. It would be a shame if he didn't fulfill his potential for the lack of making these achievable improvements imo.

We broadly know what Crowley's strengths and weaknesses are. What will trouble some managers is that a system will need quite a bit of tweaking to give Crowley the freedom to do what he does best. It puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the team. The flip side of the coin is obvious. His numbers from his first two matches are outstanding (look at Dave Cohen on Twitter who has mapped this).

I can imagine, however, that if we go on a run of form with a few losses, some might get frustrated with Crowley.

An interesting hypothetical question is would we rather have DC for the rest of the season or Callum Wright?
