He's been brilliant in midfield over the past few weeks. I honestly wouldn't be unhappy if he was our starting #8 next season. I'm sure we'll sign someone because we don't have much depth there and nobody in the U23's midfield is 1st team ready. But, yeah, Dallas has been looking every bit the complete premier league midfielder lately.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

I think we're fine at 8, with Dallas, Klich and Forshaw, all of whom are very good in Bielsa's system. We need a 10 for sure though then I'd go LWB and striker
21/22 team - Meslier - Ayling - Huggins - Koch - Llorente - Phillips - Dallas - Raphinha - Harrison - Klich - Rodrigo

Despite all the praise (deservedly so) being heaped on Raphinha this season...player of the year for me has to be Stuart Dallas, as Mr. Versatility he shines. is unselfish and gives 110%... but it is the AMF role , in particular during the last couple of months he has really shined. He is showing no signs of slowing down and IMO he can be relied on for at least another 2 seasons...His perfomances of late have certainly made dicision making in the transfer market this summer somewhat easier... But IMO he has to be considered now as a AMF and utilised there first and foremost.

Class today once again. To have stepped up to this level with such ease, in so many positions is remarkable.

The ultimate Bielsa player?

He's certainly making himself undroppable. Not bad for a 'utility' player!

Without doubt, the ultimate example of a Bielsa player...different time and different era but I actually believe he is more versatile than Madely was (and thats saying something), especially given the pace we play at these days ...

I never thought of him as quick, a slow winger in my mind.

But now he is one of the leanest, fitest, quickest players on the pitch whoever we play!

Last season I always felt reassured & content when Stuart was in our back four.

This season I feel same contentment when Mr Versatility is in our midfield.

Yes definitely the ultimate Bielsa player :tup:

Stuart Madeley, er, I mean, Paul Dallas - oh, whatever!

I can remember some posts in past seasons - statements which now look as farcical as they sounded to me then - stating him to be a plodder, etc. The man is all heart and resilient. I don't think Marcelo had anything to do with his improvement!
